CHANGE YOUR STORY
“Give a man a fish, feed him for a day, teach him to fish, and feed him for a life time” Biblical proverb.
“The problem with our schooling is that we do not teach our children basic financial education” Robert Kiyosaki.
“You cannot end poverty by taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor, you have to help the poor learn how to amass wealth” Robert Allen.
“What tends to do away with poverty is not the getting of pictures of poverty into your mind, but getting pictures of wealth into the minds of the poor.” Wallace D. Wattles in The Science of Getting Rich.
“When you believe that there is a finite pile of abundance and there is not enough to go around, and so you feel injustice when someone has more than others believing that because someone has it others are deprived of having it, you are holding yourself apart from abundance” Abraham-Hicks.
Recently I was talking to a close friend and he mentioned that “how can somebody rest at night having a multimillion dollar mansion when another down the street is living under a cardboard box”. At first light this seems like a noble and admirable way of thinking, but if we look at it from view point of The Law of Attraction as well as from the point of view of basic finance we know that this is the root of our fiscal problems. You cannot concentrate on peoples lack and bring prosperity to the society. In fact it is not your job to bring wealth and prosperity for someone else. You cannot do for other people what you think is best for them. It goes contrary to everything that the Law of Attraction stands for. Because this is a universal law, banging your head against it is futile.
Robert Kiyosaki teaches that the cure to financial crisis is to teach people how to amass wealth by giving them financial education. The basic foundation of success. The working of Esther and Jerry Hicks teach that when you compare yourself to others, you are setting yourself up for failure because you cannot harmonize with 100% of the people 100% of the time. The only person that you should be concern with is yourself. The only thing that is important is that you feel good. When you are in vibrational harmony with success, with wealth, with health you will have all of those things. Having said that I do not mean that you should not give to charity, tithe, do volunteer work etc. Do all these things, but do them when they make you feel good, not because you are trying to FIGHT poverty.
So as noble as my friend’s thought are, we need to change our basic thought principle and paradigm before we can make any dent in the problem of poverty. If you think carefully you know that what Mother Teresa said when she commented “I will not attend an antiwar rally , when you have a peace rally invite me” rings true here. By concentrating on poverty we’ll only see more and more poverty. We need to shift focus and shift attention from poverty to prosperity. As long as we think this is a competition, we will be coming from a stand point of scarcity and more people will lose than win. Why is it so hard to believe that there is abundance? Because we have been drilled from the time that we could understand the concept that you have to work hard, and you have to take what’s yours. That there is a finite amount of stuff out there. For billions of years this planet has been going along just fine. You don’t see a blade of grass struggling to grow. There is prosperity everywhere around us, and only now in this time, in this exciting time we are realizing the magical universal laws that will bring us out of this lack consciousness into abundance consciousness. It is truly exciting to be alive in this moment and it starts with YOU.
To change programs like welfare and entitlement mindset we need to build the desire to succeed. I am willing to bet that if you offer someone a million dollars to get a job within 5 days, they will be able to do it, no matter how difficult or how hard they pretend or say it is to get/find a job. There has to be a desire to better yourself. There has to be a desire to feel joy. There has to be desire to change your vibrational signal from lack to prosperity. As Abraham-Hicks teaching states “You need to tell a different story if the one you have been telling is not to your liking”. Only you can tell honestly if the story you are telling is to your liking. If getting something for nothing has been your story and you like it no one can motivate you do better. That is your comfort zone and you are content. By The Law of Attraction more and more opportunities will come to you to keep you in the same situation and as long as you like it, then you will stay that way. The important thing is that if you don’t like it and you keep on telling the same story you are ALSO attracting it to you.
When someone with no education, no contacts, no money builds and develop a successful business it gives proof to this universal law. When the desire outweighs the comfort zone, you will expand and universe reacts. As long as you provide crutches some people will take them, and some people will overcome. This may seem harsh, but it is the truth. The incidence of someone coming from nothing and going to success is not a one in a million. It happens thousands of times in this country every day, month and year. Sadly it usually takes one to hit the bottom of the barrel with nothing to lose to change the story they are telling.
In medicine, when someone is injured and bedridden, the first course of action is to get them to start moving again. The longer you sit and lie down the more you lose your muscles and the will to get up. The same is true in finance. If you have become comfortable it is hard and scary to take the leap into something that will bring you more wealth. If someone is giving you something for nothing, as little as that may be, if it is keeping you telling the same old story of being a victim and blaming the market, the economy, the government, the rich, the poor, the world, whatever… you will remain a victim.
Decide you will change and take an action now. As many teachers have said there is magic in action.
