At last he has found it, the issue of Bill Gates extravagant multi Billion dollar home. What art, what grandeur, what decedent visions for the eyes to drink in.
He walks up to the counter and proudly places it on the counter to purchase and swiftly hears, "That makes me sick, that should be a sin paying that much money for something when there are so many people in the world in need."
He stands there for a moment, a bit in shock. He looks down at the magazine then slowly looks up at her as if carefully choosing his aim before firing.
With a calm caring look and relaxed tone he pulls his verbal trigger:
"Do you realize how many jobs he created when he had that home built?"
She looks on at him in disbelief.
"Do you realize how many carpenters, electricians, plumbers and contractors of all sorts that were able pay their mortgage, feed their families and and put their kids through school because of his so called sin?"
She stares back down at the cover of the magazine not daring to make eye contact just yet again.
"I just can't see your view of someone who has touched so many lives yet calling his blessings of others a sin?"
Looking with in at that moment she looks back and says, "I apologize, you're right."
Beliefs around money are a tricky thing if you're not clear on them.
The conversation is darn near true by the way. My good friend had that near exact same experience with that very magazine featuring Bill Gates home.
His reaction was one of clear belief that money is good. Her thought, money is bad.
Belief around money can absolutely affect your ability to attract or take action towards creating it.
Ask yourself these questions:
- What do you feel money is to you?
- How do you see it affecting your life if you have more, and how will that affect others in your life?
- How much money do you feel is necessary?
- Are you tracking your money even if you don't have much?
Money is an affect more so than a cause.
Meaning, money of course is a result of your life well lived, rather than you're life being well lived because you have more money.
Here is most peoples thought process around money:
"When I have more money I'll track it, grow it and invest it."
Here is what wealth people think:
"Because I track, grow and invest it, I have more money."
This will directly affect how much activity you take towards building your network marketing business, what kind of people you're comfortable approaching and what kind of support you will actually give that person.
Think about it.
