Mo' Money, Mo' Problems?

Proverbs 10:22
The blessing of the Lord brings wealth,
and he adds no trouble to it.

That's strange. I always heard growing up that having money brought additional drama to your life. For example, folks might be jealous of you; your family members may want to borrow from you all the time, blah, blah, blah. In a nutshell, I was raised to believe that "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems!" Luckily I realized that this type of verbal influence was totally non-supportive of what my personal goals are, so I was able to shift. There are so many of us, however, who don't realize that some of the foolish stuff we heard as a child, still run us today. How can we truly create wealth, if we have a deep rooted belief that being wealthy is too risky? Despite what we say about wanting wealth, we can subconsciously jeopardize our opportunities to create wealth, if we really believe that having money will bring problems.

Take a moment and think back to your childhood. Be careful to recognize any verbal references that adults in your personal sphere would use, ie. "Money doesn't grow on trees," or "Love is more important than money." Now, look at your adult life. How have you seen these type of sayings play themselves out in your relationship to money and wealth creation today? You'll be surprised at what you find!
