Does flying coach degrade prosperity?

Many prosperity gurus make a big deal about avoiding the so-called “cheap” thing. They rail against flying in the coach section, booking discount hotel rooms that face away from the beach, and driving anything less than a recent-model sportscar of your dreams.

It’s judgmental to assume someone is anti-prosperity because of such choices. I call it “Prosperity Procrastination” ™ to delay experiencing the satisfying essence of your dream simply because you can’t afford the supposed “best” way to do it.

Maybe it’s simply not your priority to spend money for those items. Or perhaps those items would literally do you physical harm, or take away critical resources that you want for your longer-term dream.

Take 3 minutes and read Randy Gage’s insights.

Here are the comments I posted on his Facebook Page about it (in italics), followed by some closing thoughts.

 

Yes! Spending money according to one’s priorities, especially as one’s wealth increases. For me, many “luxury” items or upgrades are useless because I need to avoid the very thing they are offering (scented towels and linens and air, food I won’t eat due to medical reasons, I avoid all alcohol, etc). Instead, I put that money into our investment accounts.

I was cautioned about judging people for the way they spend their money. There’s a world of difference between “he shouldn’t buy that” and “*I* would spend it on….”. The former is an attempt at controlling others, and the latter is a statement of personal priorities.

The person driving the late model Mazda might own investment properties. The person wearing a nice but not designer-logo shirt may be in the top 5% of their company. Be careful of judging people on appearances, both inside and outside one’s profession.

Also, what improvements can one make in the gap?… for example, between barely-affording-economy-coach and first class? Look for an increase in comfort… several airlines offer a wider seat and more legroom for an extra $100 per leg. That’s a boon when I flew to Europe for the first time.

—————————–

You deserve the very best life has to offer. If the difference in affording your dream trip to Paris hinges on the price of the hotel room, then be wary about delaying it simply because The Park Hyatt Paris is out of budget. (Of course, that’s assuming staying  there isn’t part of your dream trip.)

Are you delaying your dream by buying into the way a successful person is “supposed” to spend their money? Are you looking for the IG-praiseworthy version of your dream? That’s handing your power to the crowd, who in the end don’t really care about you as a person.

Living the current level of your dream is wise. Delaying it due to peer pressure will crush your spirit.

Stick to your priorities, and enjoy your growing prosperity.

Apples Forever

I heard Teresa Romain’s story in person many years ago, and I stumbled upon this re-telling video yesterday.

Take 10 minutes and watch… This may help you shift your mindset to an abundant one.

(You might need to log into Facebook. Video found at “Teresa Romain & Access Abundance” page, video named “Day 21 of 25 in the #GoingForBreakthrough and #SupportingYou Challenge”. I receive no compensation for sharing her video).

“The rich get richer”

In the past 24 hours, my business mentor posted that common saying on social media. He asked, How does that make you feel? Does it turn you off? Turn you on?

Here’s my reply.

It makes me curious.

I ask, “Why do you say that?”

If it’s an observation, then I feel excited…that’s a person who *might* be open to what I have to offer (learning a method to join “the richer”), or who might have a growth mindset.

If it is an excuse to stay stuck, then I feel frustrated and sad that they’re not ready to meet the generous and high-integrity people I have met nor to learn the amazing things I have learned on this financial journey.

How do you react to the original statement?

“Dave Ramsey is wrong.”

That title startled me with its boastful claim. I watched the video last week.

Thousands of people follow Ramsey’s advice and praise him highly.

So what’s the problem?

Watch the video and see if you agree.  I do.

Don’t Throw Up.

One of my Facebook friends posted a link to an article regarding people who have large wealth and issues they face, with a comment of “Try not to throw up when you read this.”

I chose to respond in public, from my experiences & research, on his Timeline.

Here is my point of view, with a few corrections of grammar:

(It’s long and worth the read.)
(Pay attention to your emotions as you read… you’ll see why at the end.)

The issues raised in this article are relevant. I have been friends with several wealthy families over my lifetime. Two families in particular made it clear to their children they would be severely punished if said children taunted less fortunate ones or bragged about their wealth. (Those children attended my grade schools and were some of the kindest people I have ever known.)

Being judged for one uncontrollable aspect of their lives (being born to wealthy parents) is as damaging as being judged for other uncontrollable things: height, eye color, skin color, genealogy.

Some who have inherited large sums struggle with the ethics of how that money was created, and how one might invest or donate it to create the best improvement in the world. Some are wondering who likes them for themselves… or who simply likes them for their money.

Some struggle with addiction to alcohol, other drugs, gambling, or purchased intercourse because of huge pressure to behave a certain way combined with the easy access to the funds to buy the stuff in the first place. (Drug abuse happens more often with people who can easily afford to purchase it!)

Some struggle with a life purpose because they don’t have a built-in financial incentive to work for a living. Or they are stressed because of an abundance of choices of what field or work they want to pursue.

Some struggle with guilt because they know money can solve many problems and they know they cannot singlehandedly solve a large-scale problem. Some know they can easily afford to replace a “lemon” car, and they don’t want to insult others at work or in social gatherings by saying, “That’s easy.”

Some struggle with guilt or debilitating anger because the trust fund’s existence was not discussed and so the recipient feels overwhelmed and paralyzed when said moneys are revealed or received. In the case of inheritances, the money itself can trigger guilt, depression, or anger because it came in exchange for the life of a loved one.

Some are working to change the economic laws so inheritances are taxed more heavily and/or more economic opportunities are provided to the ordinary citizen.

A day after posting those comments on Facebook, I add these topics that popped into my head early this morning: the challenges regarding picking a spouse and hurt feelings that might arise over the signing of a prenuptial agreement. If one inherits a business, making financial decisions for that entity affects not only one’s immediate family but also hundreds if not thousands of employees and THEIR families.

And now…

A founder of a INC 500 company taught me an important lesson about money:

“If you judge other people negatively about the way they use their money, you chase away your own prosperity.”

So reflect on what you felt (emotions, any judgments) as you were reading my comments.

What can you learn from your own reactions?

I encourage you … don’t throw up.

P.S. Silent & calm discernment such as “I would have used the money for _____________” is constructive because it helps you refine your personal money goals. It is a world apart in intention and mindset from a harsh judgment such as “You shouldn’t have bought that!”

2) Are you addicted to ________?

3) and why would a multimillionaire endorse network marketing?

“Can you send some of that money magnetism my way lol?!?!?”

Earlier this week, I found a penny in a parking lot,
posted a photo on social media… and that was one friend’s reaction.

(I frequently find, photograph, and pick up coins on the sidewalk!)
.

Here’s what I replied:
I have given serious thought to your question. Here are my 4 basic “starter” guidelines:

1) Declare “I Am a Money Magnet” at least once a day, whether silently or aloud

2) Treat money well (pick up coins on the sidewalk, smooth out creases in paper money, update your spending & investing details in accounting software weekly or more often).

3) Banish any “smack talk” from your own words (such as “We can’t afford that,” “I don’t like money,”  and any negative judgments about how other people spend their own money).

4) Study the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.”

“I approached a friend on social media, and she unfriended me. What am I doing wrong?”

This was a situation stated in a coaching group today.

The previous commenters suggested reviewing the business opportunity outreach technique with one’s sponsor, remembering”Some Will, Some Won’t, So What, Someone’s Waiting,” and possibility that the “unfriending” may have happened for another reason.

My reply:

 

some people feel threatened if there are differences between themselves and a friend. You are growing in prosperity consciousness and quite likely some of your friends are not. MLM removes the excuse to complain about “getting ahead”, and some people can’t handle that level of personal responsibility. Your list of friends will change as you grow, so add new ones who support your growth.
