is the lowest form of power that is most easily abused. Money is the most powerful drug on earth. Where there is money – there is inequality and dignity disappears. Money makes people think in a new way – equivalents, monetary units, etc. Paper money was first produced in China. And throughout the course of its existence, money has gradually changed its appearance. If initially they looked like stones, shells, non-ferrous metals, then for today it’s checks and banknotes, coins and plastic cards, bank accounts and much more.
Part of social psychology has become the notion that time is money and there are no more loyal friends than a wife, a dog and cash. You can also consider money as a mask (a person’s unreal face), which is worn to communicate with others. Money is self-affirmation in the eyes of acquaintances and friends, in one’s own eyes. Money is a way of distorting the real essence of a person, this is an opportunity to make others perceive you absolutely different from what you really are.
Throughout the centuries, money in the mind of a man has become overgrown with fables, prejudices and other superstitions. People deified money, exalted them, endowed them with magical properties and fiercely hated. This is quite natural, because the golden body always directly or indirectly influenced human destinies. Myths were born in the form of fears, which were fixed and passed from mouth to mouth to succeeding generations. Stereotypes of thinking are always tenacious, because not everyone wants to think, for many it is much more convenient to live when others think for them.
Envy helps you earn money.
In fact, one of the strongest incentives for making us earn money is banal envy. Many people condemn it and simply do not want to recognize its existence in themselves, proving to themselves that this is just decisiveness, pragmatism, ambition, etc. However, listening to the opinion of great philosophers, we will not forget that to be an absolutely happy person is possible only if , that we will not be burdened by the sight of someone else’s great happiness. It is envy – this is one of the most serious enemies of happiness.
Wealth is passed on from generation to generation.
If a person is sure that he will not be able to get rich without the help of his wealthy ancestors and a solid inheritance, that is why he does not strain at all, he does not strive, then he really does not “shine” big money. A goal-oriented person, thanks to his skills and diligence, can make a wonderful career and really improve his financial situation.
Feng Shui will help to earn a lot of money.
This is a myth for those who work very hard and hard, but at the same time they receive neither material satisfaction nor moral from their work. In the process of earning money, it is much more practical to rely on oneself, at any rate, it sooner or later brings visible results in the form of a monetary reward.
To get rich, communications are needed.
There is an opinion that in order to become rich or profitable to invest money, it is necessary to have connections. Those people who think so, can not really increase their capital, because they do not do anything for it, they just find an excuse for themselves. An energetic, sociable person who sets himself the task of getting rich sooner or later will achieve his goal.
An intimate way to a monetary paradise.
A huge part of women really believe that the shortest and easiest way to a financial paradise lies, if not through the heart of a man, then – through the bed. However, in practice it turns out that such a road is lined with thorns. And not all self-serving calculations turn out to be correct, and there is no guarantee that your financial well-being will last for a long time.
Marriage with an oligarch is the best way to improve one’s well-being.
This is really a complete myth.As it turns out in most cases, when making a marriage with a poor woman, in most cases beautiful, a woman, the money magnate is not going to part with millions. Gives you funds strictly for the purpose, mostly greedy and prudent. Yes, you may have the opportunity not to work, lead a household, give birth to children, but there is no guarantee that you will not be on the street tomorrow with a bunch of children, without a profession, without education, without work experience in any field and with very modest alimony.
With money, you can solve all problems.
Many people think that if they had a lot of money, they could solve all their problems. In reality, this is not quite so. Yes, a lot of problems are solved very quickly with the help of money, but do not forget the folk wisdom “small money is small problems, and big money is big problems”. In this case, your changed attitude to money can become a way out of the situation. Only changing yourself, your stereotypes and habits will lead you to wealth.
Money should be loved, then there will be a lot.
It is worth finding out for yourself immediately what more we love more – to spend money or to care about their augmentation. After all, money gives us the opportunity to translate our desires into life, to gain complete freedom, to receive all kinds of pleasures. Since the moment we begin to respect the money, they start to go into our hands, because everyone knows that love is the biggest magnet in the world. Yes, money really needs to be loved, but you should not put them in the first place in your life.
Money is not happiness.
So people usually think, unable to earn decent money, such a statement is a kind of protection. However, it is worthwhile to offer such a person money, as it immediately becomes clear that, speaking of the fact that money is not in money, he was simply a hypocrite. In such cases, people immediately forget about their principles, but there are also those who can work on bare enthusiasm, but their units. Lack of money prevents a person from getting full satisfaction from life, and their presence often directly contributes to the emergence of happiness. After all, a person was born just to be happy and as rich as possible. Money helps us to open up, to please loved ones, so we can not say that happiness is only in money, but on the other hand one can not say that happiness can be complete if you do not have money. Money enhances happiness.
Luck is the basis of wealth.
This is a truly mistaken view. Many people think that lucky people get decent money without much effort, for example, winning a casino, a lottery, a legacy. Such cases are extremely rare. The bulk of rich people earned their money, starting with a meager seed capital, but at the same time having a great desire and perseverance in achieving this goal. Yes, fate can give you a chance, but it’s not a fact that you will understand it in time and use it. And to sit and wait all your life without doing anything, you can not wait for anything. After all, real luck visits those people who meet it and make every effort to approach the meeting with it.
The more work, the more money you will earn.
Real wealth comes to the one who correctly thinks, plans and acts, and not to someone who just plows from dawn to dusk. Only in the case of a competent approach to the issue of earning money, thinking deeply, you have a chance to become rich. And the extent of the forces expended by you and the amount of money are not connected with each other. After all, as you know, the poor work from dawn to dusk, and earn a penny. The key to success is a strong desire and a firm belief in oneself.
How many do not work – above the head you will not jump.
Such confidence programs you in advance for inaction and poverty, complete passivity.The negative attitude, the doom of a person initially set it to failure. As you know, you can change your destiny by everyone, you just have to change the way of your thoughts, your mood, and get rid of stereotypes.
Kopeika rubel preserves.
As you know, the less our costs, the more the limitations of our needs grow. Asceticism still did not stimulate anyone to earn money. And this means that the less you spend money, the less you can spend your efforts on making money. Excessive frugality leads to a blocking of business activity. The answer to this statement is that people’s wisdom is “miserly pays twice”.
In forty years there is no money, and will not.
It is believed that you can make a fortune only in youth. And after forty you can relax – the train is gone anyway. This false negative attitude still lives in the minds of many. A simple example. Abraham Lincoln, whose portrait adorns a five-dollar bill, was a loser in any case, for whatever he took up to 40 years. This great man succeeded only in adulthood.
Contrary to idle opinion, according to statistics, people create the best in age from about forty to sixty years. These statements are based on a careful study of the activities of thousands of people. Suffice it to mention the examples of such well-known millionaires as Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie.
Believe by the whole being that you can become a rich man at any age. Most rich people made their fortunes after forty. If you do not have a magpie yet, then you are ahead. If more, then the time of your heyday just comes.
Poverty is not a vice.
Poverty is the virtue of a humble person who does not have enough stars from the sky, is satisfied with the small and does not compromise his principles.
However, the poverty of poverty is different. One can deeply sympathize with the sick person, the pensioner, whom the state used, and then threw it to the dustbin of history. Or military, released on all four sides after 20 years of impeccable service. Forgiveness is a compulsory poverty for able-bodied people who are in an intense search for their place under the sun and are ready to work hard, but have not yet found their niche. The material deprivation of such citizens necessarily deserves compassion and help, both from the state and from those who are richer.
There is another category of citizens who like to repeat this proverb to justify their passivity and inaction. It’s an army of idlers and chatterboxes. This myth they use as an exculpatory argument. How many among us healthy dependents, lazy people, consumer-minded personalities, dreamy dreamers who could not fit into a new reality, in today’s rather cruel world. They simply do not want to take responsibility for their well-being in their own hands. Such new poor people are not only passive, but also aggressive in their accusation of anyone, only not themselves. They as a shield are closed from wealth and prosperity by their negative attitudes. Vice – destroys a person from the inside, like a worm, devouring the core of a ripe apple. Poverty also corrodes the human consciousness like rust and it takes life negatively. He enters it as if from a back door, because I’m sure – the front door is not for him. Deprivation and limitations make him forget that he was born for happiness and wealth. In poverty, there is no virtue. And the vices of the poor are no less than those of the rich. Most of them are passive, envious, lack of initiative, limited.
Indeed, poverty is not a vice. But that kind of poverty, which we just talked about, nests in the mind, a kind of mental illness that needs to be treated. When something hurts, we go to the doctor, tell him about the symptoms of his illness, and he prescribes a course of treatment. From poverty you can get rid yourself, but better with the help of a specialist who will cure a chronic illness of consciousness.
