The Problem With Being Rich
We often hold subconscious beliefs about the downside of getting what we want that can hold up the manifesting party. Got any party poopers in the back of your mind? Let’s find out!
Is there really a problem with being rich?
Well, if you’re not already (rich), there may very well be (a problem).
At least in your mind.
A problem you believe in which prevents “rich” from being your experience.
We do this a lot, you know. Hold unconscious beliefs about something we say we want, which keeps us from experiencing it. (Whether it’s healthy relationship, fabulous body, career success, etc. that we desire.)
Once you reveal your belief in the problem, you’re much more likely to get what you want. Awareness of the belief is a powerful start; which facilitates the next step of releasing it.
While I have no opinion about whether you be wealthy or not, I know many who would like to be yet aren’t. These folks often don’t realize they may believe in a problem with being rich.
Yesterday while addressing Sylvia Nibley’s Conscious Business Circle in Salt Lake, I shared a recent realization about my apparent six figure financial “set point.” (I haven’t found myself too much above or too far below that point for a while – a sure indicator of a set point.
But it also made me wonder if perhaps I also buy into the thought that there’s something wrong with having lots more money.
So with the intention of shedding some light on what might be your “rich-stopper,” let’s look at some of the problems with being rich, shall we?
I’ll start. 🙂
The problem with being rich … well, in my case it feels better to word it: “The problem with being more rich than I already feel, is … ”
- it’ll upset the dynamics in my relationship (owie! Didn’t see that one coming!)
- friends and family will be resentful because I didn’t earn or deserve this wealth more than they do (pretty typical)
- others will want and expect me to give them money (another common “problem” we believe about wealth)
- I’ll have to get serious about responsible handling of money – smart investments, finding tax breaks, accountants, etc.
Oh boy, I’m finding it a little too easy to come up with reasons!! ha
I honestly didn’t think this post was for me. Sheesh.
While I’m writing the follow up to this piece (what to do with this new awareness), I’d love to hear whether you can bring to light any problems with being rich.
Or whatever it is you want … weight loss, love, successful business … can you see a problem with having it?
