“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.”— Zig Ziglar
Many people unfortunately live by the debilitating adage, “Money is the root of all evil,” and start justifying the lack and misery in their lives. But they forget that money is the root of so much good in the world as well.
Money is money, it’s neutral. It’s we who put it either in the “good” or “bad” category based on our perception and our beliefs.
Our human brain is wired to expand the negatives and disqualify the positives. Many people easily forget the amazing things that they have been able to do and can still do with money, and instead direct their attention towards what’s scarce.
One way to get back in the abundance mindset is to start counting your blessings. Take a crisp piece of paper and write all the wonderful things and experiences you have had in your life because of money. You’ll realize that there’s so much to thank money for — your education, your car, your home, your clothes, your physical and digital libraries, your food, your tech gadgets, your appliances, your medications and supplements, your membership to that gym or yoga studio, your coffee purchases, your vacation trips, the list is endless.
Start appreciating money; it has the power to literally change our lives (and help us change others’) on so many levels.
Think of it as a good friend, and respect and honor it. As you do that and tap into the uplifting energy of wealth and abundance, you’ll find more money flowing in your life. It’s a given!
