Money is a Magnifier.
That is an awesome thought! And so true. Money is an amazing thing. It can create, and destroy. It can magnify and clarify. And it can intensify and multiply you.
But many networkers I have observed, and with my own experience, that many people who have never really had that much money before can be perceived differently once they have “hit it big” in MLM. Many people say, “They have changed…they are not same people”.
Oh really? We need to take a closer look.
Most people today live in a financial pressure cooker. Their world revolves around that 8x10 envelope with a paycheck in it. And lack of money magnifies their concern for future, and their concern for even survival.
Money also magnifies their emotions and feelings outwardly. Financial Pressure can do some interesting things to relationships and marriages. And when slightest “crack in armor” appears, and real person starts to show up, money magnifies that tremendously.
Most people today are clueless to fact that lack of and abundance of money can magnify everything about them, good or bad. And many times, money can work against you as far as your life. It magnifies things that people are not aware of.
Ok….what are those things?
Money magnifies three things that will determine if you truly are wealthy or not. As my mentor taught me…”Being rich is about possessions. Being wealthy is about what you do with them”. In other words, being rich is about having a lot of money. Being wealthy is about having lifestyle to go with it.
And money can magnify your focus to a large extent in you life. There are many rich people out there who don’t live a wealthy lifestyle. Their money magnifies their fear of losing it, or not being worthy of it, or fear of not being able to repeat it.
The three things that money magnifies are:
1)“Your relationship to money”.
You either have a scarcity relationship with money, or you have an increase relationship with it. Most of how we view money we heard growing up, and it was magnified in our life:
“What do you think I am made of…money?” “Money doesn’t grow on trees!” “Money is root to all evil”. “ Things are tight this month”. “I have enough money to pay my bills”.
THAT is scarcity thinking about money, and that is magnified in your life, and it then is magnified even more with lack of money being constant.
If you have suddenly have money, and have never had it before, and you have a scarcity relationship with money, that will be magnified in your life. And money will go eventually away if you don’t change your relationship.
