These days, there are many reasons why people want money. They think money is the solution to all. Well, so sorry to tell you, money doesn’t solve all problems. Many people are battling with different emotional challenges and they think having money will help them overcome them. No, it won’t. It’s an emotional challenge, an inner problem and no matter the money you have, that challenge will not be solved by money.
If your sole aim of getting money is the best way to avenge yourself of growing up under parents/guardians with many money problems, well, you may have the money and not still be free of the anger and bitterness that grew up with you. You get this money and you don’t find fulfilment. You get this money and lose it all again because the money was gotten to redress a problem money can’t.
For some others, their main aim of having money is to solve their problem of fear. Fear of not having enough money to meet their needs. These people end up having the money and are not still free from fear because the root problem of fear has not been addressed. These ones have the money and the fear which has not been addressed turns to fear of losing the money.
And for some, they want the money in order to validate themselves. They don’t believe well in themselves. They don’t feel they are good enough. They are struggling with low self-esteem and they think money will solve it. Money won’t solve it! They can get all the money and not still feel good about themselves.
Fear, anger, bitterness, low self-esteem and other emotional challenges are internal problems. These needs to be addressed properly regardless of having money or not.
Why do you want the money?
We believe in you!
To your financial independence and freedom.
