Discovering The Truth About Money

Financial Myth Busting

There are many myths surrounding finances that need to be busted. An honest approach reveals that most of these beliefs and practices some people have concerning finances are not true. They turn out to be false assumptions which stop most people from the kind of life that is filled with riches and happiness. To break free of this slavery to untruths and head towards financial freedom, you will have to drop such ridiculous notions.

There is the common myth that having a lot of money will change you into a bad person. What is true is money reveals who you really are. It is easy to know what kind of person someone is when they have money. The selfish among us will display it for all to see. Selfless people, on the other hand, will be selfless with their money.
There is also a popular one stating money is not everything. This means that the life one lives is not determined by money. This betrays how the poor are in denial. Access to money influences the quality of your life. Your access to wealth is seen in the details of your life.
The myth which states that money makes you less spiritual is false. Having money enhances your sense of spirituality and enables you to generate positive results from your spiritual works. It is the fact that most of the wealthiest people today are very spiritual. After acquiring wealth, you will automatically focus on attaining the higher goals in the pyramid of man’s needs and ambitions. Wealthy people understand that this is merely a blessing to be used for doing the common good.

There is also the belief that rich people worship money. The opposite of this is what is true. They will not think of their families or health conditions, and spend most of their lives working to make some of it. The rich are beyond this trap, and are free to focus on bigger goals and truly rewarding objectives.

Some people believe earning a lot of money means finishing it for others. What is true is that having more money gives you the chance to make other people earn theirs. Wealth begets more wealth. The products and services the wealthy create help others to have more wealth of their own.

And the final myth that says money is the root of all evil couldn’t be more wrong. Lacking finances is the root of evil. What this simply means is that poverty has led to evil deeds like theft, murder and lying.
