I am doing this exercise as a part of a Chris Howard program that I am soooooooooooo thrilled to be able to participate in. It finally happened I found someone whom I so so so resonated with and am so excited to start taking action. It's about damn time. I've been learning so much and growing so much the past couple years, but I finally feel ready to roarrrrrrr! and get out there and take FULL strides. (explain the full part later).
So here we go: I had to write down all of my chains to meaning I have on Wealth and Success. Now I'm going to share my new meanings with all of you.
Being wealthy does not require you to sell your soul. You can be a honorable, humble, kind, wonderful and wealthy person staying true to your principle and values all the way, every day!
You do not have to put work about family. Actually I don't even think it's a competition anymore. It's not about who you love more your passionate-filled oh-so-satisfying job or being the best parent you can be. Those two are both apart of you, they can be played in harmony together. Forget competition!!! It's a win-win situation to be played together and balanced naturally. My family will only benefit from me pursuing my dream job/own incredible successful business. I'll have more energy as I pursue my passion in my career and I'll have MORE time and flexibility to be there for my hubby and kids. Not to mention all the cool places I'm going to take them.
If you're wealthy, you're probably lonely. Not So! You will keep those family and friends who are meant to be with you to share your journey and will attract other like-minded incredible souls on similiar paths.
You will travel either for business or travel as much or as little as you want to. You don't have to abandon your children to trot the globe in order to be successful!
Expanding a business means reaching more people-those on your team and those who are drawn to your products/services. No wo/man is an island right? You need a team to get this party started. More team members means win-win. I reject the thought that more employees=more headaches or problems. Choose teammates wisely. Go for the win=win always.
You'll lose all of your profits to taxes. Not true. The more you have, the more you contribute...yes. But you can keep growing and acquiring. The universe will keep expanding with/for you.
You have to be greedy and exploitive to be wealthy. I disagree. with the win-win philosophy you do not have to step on others to boost yourself upwards.
I'm not great with numbers/money. That's what my teammates are for. And it's damn time to start learning. I drink down self-help literature, now it's time to get educated on finances.
$ ruins relationships, all partnerships end up sour. Nay! Know who you're getting on your team. Be flexible and tactful. If it's meant to be, it will be.
My business is exactly what I make it. It does not have to take over my life or rob my friends or family of me. It will be what I build it to be.
The more wealth I manifest, the less someone else has. Nope, not anymore. I know that this is an abundant universe and Source is conspiring with me to make all I can possible desire come true. Thank you Abraham and Esther and Jerry for teaching me that.
I'm afraid my life will change and no longer be normal. It's true. My life will no longer be normal. It will be extraordinary. My energy level is through the roof. I feel inspired and inspire every day. I sail through situations that used to stop me up or get me stuck. I am consciously connected to source all day every day. I strive for excellence in all that I do. I know I'm here to change the world, to leave it a better place, to do my part, and be the very best I can be. Does that sound normal? Who wants normal anyway?
Rich people are exactly like me. different, beautiful, classy, have a bad day every once in awhile, intelligent, self-empowered, deserving, loving, kind, independent, strong, successful. I am all those things and so much more. We are all one, no one is better than anyone else. We are all the same wonderful humaness. No matter what car you drive.
