Day 9 of 31 Days to Get A Lil’ U.G.L.I.
Why is it that we must feel guilt when we want more money? Or to be our own Boss? Or to live in a big house? Or any other “BIG” dream? I will tell you why.
Most of us grew up in an environment that told us that “money is the root of all evil,” or “Rich people are jerks.” And so we carried those beliefs within us into adulthood. We were probably raised up in strict, religious homes that believed that to be poor is the only way to be close to GOD. A lot of us were told that just because we didn’t come from “money” that we will never be able to make it out of poverty.
So, when we dream about wanting the things we desire, we somehow feel guilty for wanting those things. Let me be the one to let you in on a little secret: YOU WERE NOT MADE TO JUST PAY BILLS AND DIE!
You are allowed to want those things. What we must be careful of is allowing those material things to become first in our lives. As long as we remain humble and know not to worship the material things, it is alright to desire the big house, to be an entrepreneur, and to accumulate wealth!
Today, make a list of the things that you desire and as you list each one, realize that you deserve it! Throw away the guilt and the limiting beliefs that you have inside that says it is wrong for you to want nice things. Be free!
