No Shortage of Money

2010-05-09-948083_f520.jpg
1 trillion dollars was lost in the stock market yesterday and it didn't change your life one little bit! This goes to show you just how much money there exist on this planet. 1 trillion dollars was destroyed due to fear, economic reports, bad news, and maybe, some guy on Wall Street with a fat thumb making an incorrect entry.

The point is money is not scarce! There are no shortages of it and it is not something to be concerned or worried about. A trillion dollar destruction of wealth and nothing changed for you or your family. It terrified a lot of people but it shouldn't. Here is the reality, even if the entire economy collapsed tomorrow the fact is we would all be in it together, all equally effected, all shocked by it yet we would all continue on.

One of the reasons people have shortages of money is because of their belief in the scarcity of money. You were taught; "don't waste", "money doesn't grow on trees", "watch your pennies", "money won't make you happy", and on and on. All these sayings, suggested to you, by others that probably had trouble with money themselves, perpetuate a sense of shortage and difficulty around the topic money.

Add to that the idea that your parents, mentors, employers and teachers told that you, "you need to go out into the world and make your money." Even this is a false. It is against the law to 'make' money. Money is printed, stored in massive warehouses and distributed into the economy when necessary. Anytime there is a shortage more is printed. Money is created no different than the printing of legal pads, post-its or even toilet paper. You would never say, "oh I have to go make some legal pads." Money is to be collected, invested and used! Use the legal pad or it has no value. Save the toilet paper and it won't fulfill its useful purpose. The same with money, understand you don't make it, go out and collect it, then use it to position yourself to grow your ideas and dreams and advance the goals of your family or company.

Quit worrying about money, quit thinking in shortages and start thinking in terms of abundance. Don't worry about making it's not your job. Your job, if you would like to control more money, is to go out into the world and get into the flow of it. The bigger the flow you get into and the smarter and more creative you are, the better your chances of succeeding with money.

1) Remember there exist no shortages.
2) You don't have to make money.
3) Get into the flow of it.
4) Study others that have proven their ability to collect money.

If you want to have more money then get your thinking adjusted about the topic and go out into the world and sell your ideas and dreams so and collect as much as you want. And the next time someone says to you, 'money doesn't grow on trees", know that are talking to someone that understands nothing about money. Today's US dollars are made from cotton fiber paper. When someone says to you "go make some money" remind yourself that money is printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and, since 1914, have been issued by the Federal Reserve.

Now get rid of all your false ideas about money, quit wasting your time on conspiracy theories and go out into the market place and sell your ideas, dreams, products and services and collect all the money you want.
