Make More Money Part 2

Make More Money Part 2
In Make More Money Part One I​ discussed the​ many beliefs that prevent people from making as​ much money as​ they could from their work .​
Among these were contrasting beliefs such as,​ my work has no value and my talents are a​ gift from God,​ so I​ should give my work away for free .​
In Part 2 we discover that there are two other major categories of​ problems with making money .​
These are mainly toxic belief systems i.e .​
patterns of​ cultural brainwashing that cause people to:
1.have problems holding on​ to​ the​ money
2.wait for someone else to​ make money for them.
Two common toxic belief systems that cause I​ can’t hold on​ to​ money are:
•The Holiness Program that says that being Holy and doing my soul mission requires sacrifice,​ suffering,​ and misery .​
Popular requirements for being holy also include poverty,​ failure,​ celibacy,​ asceticism,​ martyrdom,​ persecution,​ death,​ loneliness,​ isolation,​ lovelessness,​ depression,​ frustration,​ exhaustion,​ illness,​ and pain .​
Ironically,​ poverty and failure are more likely to​ inhibit a​ person’s ability to​ work,​ be productive and make a​ contribution to​ the​ world than vice-versa.
•The Scarcity Program that says there are only a​ limited amount of​ resources to​ go around .​
If you​ have money then somebody else does not,​ and therefore you​ can’t have something without hurting someone else .​
The guilt that this produces causes people to​ give away what they have,​ or​ turn down opportunities for success.
Two common toxic belief systems that cause Someone else will make money for me are:
•The Dependency program that says you​ can’t survive on​ your own,​ the​ world is​ a​ dangerous and cruel place,​ and therefore you​ must be dependent on​ someone else to​ take care of​ you​ .​
This pattern causes people,​ particularly women,​ to​ seem financially independent,​ but in​ fact they just get by rather than being really successful.
•The Gender program that says women are inferior to​ men and need to​ find a​ man to​ survive .​
In order to​ do so,​ a​ woman can’t be too bright,​ successful,​ or​ powerful and still be attractive to​ men.
