Believe in your capacity to make money

Remember that your perception of yourself is your reality. How you define yourself will be how you will act. If you believe that you’re a lazy, inept, weak, dim-witted individual – that’s how you will act. Your definitions of yourself are self fulfilling prophecies. Why? Because the human beings, one of our greatest needs is consistency. You will find yourself acting consistently with your self-concept and self-definition.

If it in your thinking you believe that you can’t earn enough money for your family, then you won’t. if you see yourself as a C-employee or worse, an F-businessman, then that’s what you will be. If this is your self-concept, then that you’ll be your life forever. Sometimes, people are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty, handed down in their families from one generation to another. Their very family identity is indelibly wedged and welded with poverty. They see themselves, define themselves, describe themselves as poor. I’ve seen this phenomenon so many times in my work, I think it’s an epidemic.

I am totally convinced that we are limited by our own core beliefs, and if we have small beliefs about ourselves, then we will remain small forever. But if you believe in your heart that you can create money, then you can. Your Creator has given you this capacity to earn money – for yourself, for your family, for your life –dreams. Use it.

Create a paradigm shift for yourself right now.

Believe in your capacity to make money.

Action Plan

Examine your self-concept. How do you define yourself? How do you describe yourself? Write your answers down.
