Is Desiring Wealth Greedy or is it Simply a Limiting Belief?

Pity the man who inherits a million dollars and isn’t a millionaire. Here’s what would be pitiful, if your income grew and you didn’t. Jim Rohn

 

I talk to a lot of people from all over the world and when I ask them

 “ what is your ideal income” many reply with “ I don’t want to be greedy”, so they give an answer that they think is reasonable.

I hear this as a limiting belief, holding loads of people back from being more and certainly that was how I was allowing those thoughts to effect me.

 

I hear  it over and over and it allows me to reflect when once I thought along those lines until I stopped and questioned myself, why do I want wealth? I realised that I can do more good in the world being wealthy rather than being poor. I also realised I had the fortunate opportunity to create wealth and share that with those who have less opportunity, however I also realised I had work to do on myself, before I could be truly wealthy.  

I am aware wealth is much more than material possessions and money, I have had material possessions, had them taken away when I was a child, created wealth again as an adult and let it go again, all because I had not done the work on myself to be truly wealthy.

Some lessons have to be learned the really hard way. Though as I usually find that adversity lead me to living a more authentic life.

I am a work in progress – and I continue to grow and be more. I also enjoy the wealth, in all its forms in my life.

Are you wealthy? Are your thoughts limiting your reality?
