Let’s talk about money.

Here, I won’t teach you how to get money. But I just want to remind you about the money that you need, about the money that you have and about the money that you spend. I know talking about money is quite sensitive but I want to give you a perspective about how we treat money.

Who doesn’t need money?

I guess you need money. Me too.

Because of money I can eat food every day. Because of money I can go to college. It helps me to survive. That’s the good side.

Meanwhile, because of money, people become arrogant. Because of money, people become stressed and depressed. That’s the bad side.

We have to be mindful of those two sides. It means that money is not permanent. It stays on our wallet or bank account for a while. It doesn’t stay for a long time. But if we hold money lots of the time, we can’t buy something. The money will keep rotating from one person to another person. That’s how money works.

Meanwhile, not all people live with a lot of money. Sometimes, we are afraid of losing money. Especially in the hard times like today, where some people lost their job.

But, we don’t need to worry about money. As I said before that money will come to people, including you, including me. The money is neutral. God will always save your life through money.

I know some richest people in the world stay humble with their life. One of the reasons I know is because money doesn’t provide long-term happiness. Meaning that we can feel sad, even though we have more money. Because we are still human.

What we need is more emotional and spiritual. When we can see this life from a different perspective, we can embrace life as what it is, not what it should be. We are not a designer of life but we are a designer of our own choice. We can choose to be happy in every condition, right?

It depends on our emotional control. But I believe you can.

The shape of money is small, but the effect is big. I hope you have opened your mind to my perspective about money. Now, let me strengthen your mindset or perspective about money.

Your Believe Matters

You need to believe that money will come to you, sooner or later. This belief makes you fully aware that God always provides for your needs. God is the fairest. He won’t let you sad all the time. He will raise you.

Don’t lose faith and belief.

Your Words is Powerful

Please, don’t ever say that you are bad. Don’t ever say that you don’t have money to live. You need to say good things about your money and your entire life. Because your words will be an affirmation or prayer.

So, when your words are positive, your life will be positive.

You can say this sentence every day, “I’m happy. I always get what I need. I’m wealthy. My life is full of abundance. I’m grateful for my life.”

Your mind is Dynamic

Your mind is dynamic. It doesn’t mean that your mind is moving. But, I mean your mind can be wondering and wandering. When your mind wondering, you will try to find the answer. When your mind wandering, you will jump from one picture to another picture inside your mind. Both can help you find a way to get more money.

Your mind is dynamic. Don’t stop wondering and wandering.

Pablo Picasso once said, “I’d like to live as a poor man with lots of money.”

What I get from Picasso’s quote is that we can accept money mindfully and use money effectively.

When you feel down about money, you can apply those three things that I told you before. Start believing that money will come to you so that you will not worry about money. Then start saying positive words in every condition. Say that your life full of abundance. And then, let your mind find a way to make more money. I hope your life will be better soon.
