There are many people in this world who have large amounts of money. On the other hand, it’s a sad reality that many don’t have much. The question is often asked, especially by those at the low end of the money totem pole. How is it that a small percentage of people have such a high percentage of the world’s money?
I believe the answer is two-fold. One is that it’s a mindset. Along with that, it’s these richest people that believe they are worthy of having what they have, and they simply expect it.
Here is a reality that I was reminded of a few days ago. I’ve read it in several places, and I realize its truth more each day. There is no lack of money in this world. There is an abundant supply that is available to anyone. If you believe this fact, and fully understand your worthiness to have your share, you can quickly begin to increase the amount of money you see in your life.
An analogy that is used in these articles is that of air. There is an abundant supply of air available to every human being. We are all aware of this availability, and we feel worthy to use all that we need, never fearing that it will disappear. Sometimes, especially if we are stressed or just completed some type of physical exercise, we strive for more air, never doubting the fact that we are completely entitled to it without the accusation of being greedy. The only time it would be a problem is if we deliberately try to take air that belongs to someone else, and we all know that people normally don’t deliberately try to do that.
It will be very helpful to you to adopt this attitude in your beliefs about money. Just like air is readily available to use by all (there is no my air, your air, his air. It’s just air), so is money. An abundant supply is readily available. It has no one’s name on it. It is simply available to anyone who believes they are worthy of it. I am not saying we don’t have to work for it or provide something of value in order to receive it. However, I am saying there is no reason you or I deserve any less than the millionaires on this planet. We just need to adopt their attitudes about money and let go of the belief that money is limited or that we don’t deserve it.
I will conclude with the fact that money is not evil. It’s the love of money and greed for it that the Bible defines as the root of all evil. Just like it would be wrong to take someone else’s air, having lots of money that belongs to someone else or was taken from them is indeed evil. However, that’s it. If it is earned rightfully, it belongs to you as much as it belongs to the next person.
If you are struggling with money today, I challenge you to change your beliefs starting now. Realize the abundance of money. It is as abundant as air! Remind yourself constantly that, just as you are fully entitled to the air you breath, you are completely entitled to your part of the unlimited source of money. Your responsibility is to gain it rightfully, then manage it well and share it generously. Once you realize how abundant and available money is, and how worthy of it you are, you will find rightful ways to manifest it into your life. Once you do, it’s priceless 🙂
WOW, Dalio,…this is truly a great post. I wish the whole world will see and understand this. It is true that the first and greatest way to change a man is to change his mindset.
I know that the abundance of this world belongs to me and I enjoying it in Jesus name. I’m daily supplied with finances in Jesus Name.
Thanks again for this. God bless you richly.
Thank you for the wonderful words! You reminded of something I thought of the other day. I was thanking God that He has ALWAYS taken care of my financial needs, regardless of how much or little I had. Thanks again and have a wonderful day 🙂
Great post!! I am living proof that this concept is true!! I have been seeing more and more of Gods blessings in my life by just knowing that He owns it all and it’s available to me.. I love how you said ” manage it well and share it generously.” I believe that is key!!
Dan…thank you so much for the wonderful comment! I love what you say about “God owns it all…yet it’s made readily available to me”. Many blessings to you 🙂
