Most of you won’t want to hear what I have to say in this article, but I challenge you to open your mind. Everyone wants to win the Lotto and desires to fall into the whole get rich quick scheme. But has anyone actually ever done some research on what happens to these people after they’ve become rich so quickly or won the Lotto? Why is it that so many people who’ve won the Lotto have said that it’s the worst thing that happened to them, Winning the Lotto actually ruined people’s lives. That’s right.
The simple way to say this is by giving money to the poor that won’t fix the underlying money problem. If a person wasn’t capable of managing their pennies how are they going to be able to manage their millions? In essence if not good at dealing with, saving and budgeting what difference will it make to give them more of it.
I grew up with a Father saying to me “Carla, you can’t live a Champagne Life on a Lemonade Budget” or Only an earned Millionaire will know what to do with his millions. As much as I wanted to ignore him he was right! Most businesses that have built up slowly and gradually their profit and account over time are more likely to succeed long term than a business that is given a lump sum to get started. All the necessary growth steps that it takes to build a business is skipped with a large lump sum to start off. An upward trending business has the opportunity to learn from the hurdles it took them to get up that far.
Same with someone who wins a million dollars. Suddenly they would go on a spending spree, waste all the money and may even buy investments they wouldn’t be able to maintain when all that money runs out. Futhermore, they wouldn’t have the mental or emotional capacity to deal with that much money because they may attract false friends, fame, inauthentic relationships, scammers etc… whatever people whom have lots of financial abundance attract. If they had of built that money progressively over time they would have had lots of time to adjust to the increasing flow of abundance and change in lifestyle. Making them better and better at managing their money affairs.
In conclusion, solve all your Money issues mentally and emotionally first, and progressively build your financial legacy. That way you are a match to your abundance and will be more likely to sustain this abundance long term.
