People say the word “WISH” a lot. It looks very much like this.
#1. I wish I could afford that.
#2. I wish that was cheaper so I could get it.
#3. Why does everything have to be so expensive, I wish this was on sale.
Do you see a problem here? This is defeated self talk right here. People who talk like this are putting limits on themselves solely based on their current situation. If you can’t afford something right now, whats stopping you from affording it in the near future?
Do you not have plans to grow? is life as good as its going to get for you? How come you don’t ever say “I’m going to set some goals and go purchase the things I really want in life” How come most people can’t talk like that?……because it means they would have to be accountable to those words and today, people are less accountable than ever before. People will work their ass off for a paycheck at a job, but they will spend zero time working on themselves so they can see what their full potential looks like.
Gone are the days of the solid work ethic. I’m not talking about working hard at a job and coming home exhausted everyday because that is just a routine. I’m talking about the extra effort you can put in to better your situation in life. Do you lack money for things?….WHY? is it because you don’t like pushing yourself to new heights? or is it because you are self defeated already and just want to hold onto what you currently have and hope for the best?
Be very aware of the language you use folks. Many people have no idea but they talk themselves out of progress all the time and a lot of that terrible self talk comes from fear and lack of useful knowledge that can build up confidence in them to create a new sense of action.
If something is too expensive right now, do you wait for it to go on sale? or do you go right after it because you have the ability to create a solution for that problem? The real issue here is that people are relying on just one income source to solve all their money problems.
Think about this, most people have a car payment, rent or a mortgage, insurance, food, gas, electric, phone, cable, internet, and more. All of these problems here cost money, most of these are things people can’t avoid but yet people seem to think that their one source of income (Their Job) will provide more than enough funds to cover all of these expenses or more. If that is not the case, how are you going to solve that lack of income issue? Will you work a 2nd job part time? or will you develop new skills that will put you in a position to get ahead on your finances?
Think about how many problems you have each year that cost money, now take a look at all the money options you have right now to solve all of those. If your only source of income is a 9 to 5 job, then you are a slave to that wage because if you outspend what you are worth on paper, that is how you fall into debt and instead of shrinking down your goals in life to match your income, why not grow your income to match the things you really want to accomplish?
Self defeated people are the ones who don’t take the time or effort to get ahead. When you settle for just a job in life, you missed out on a whole world full of opportunities and that is where that whole “Wish” mentality comes from. It only happens because you were taught how to work for a living and settle in life vs create a living and creating a life.
In this day and age, that’s a tough spot to be in because the world moves faster than ever before so you can either skill up, take action and see results or you can get left behind!
