It is of great important that I release this to you being that we are on the cusp of income tax season…
Many of the thoughts that I will share can be referenced back to the likes of Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn and Apostle Steven Moffett. These individuals have paved the way in our hearts and minds with finances and life in general. So, I ask you to open up your mind and your heart to this new IN-FOR-MATION.
No man can do his best work, no man can express himself in terms that command respect, no man can either create or carry out a definite purpose in life with heavy debt hanging over his head. The man who is bound in slavery of debt is just as helpless as the slave who is bound by ignorance, or by actual chains.
Debt is the symptom that is indicative of a poverty mindset. Poverty is a parasite that sucks the life out of our resources. We combat any sickness that causes us to stagger or stumble at the promises of God with proper usage.
We don’t correct misuse by no use, we correct misuse by proper usage.
Apostle Steven Moffett
According to Napoleon Hill there are two classes of debt:
1. Debt accrued from luxuries that result in a dead loss
2. Debt incurred in the course of professional or business trading which represent a service or merchandise that can be converted back into assets
The kingdoms of this world have deemed a high accumulation of material possessions as elite status or prestige. Many who are under this circumstance of thinking accrue debt from luxuries that result in a dead loss.
These individuals are those who lack “Financial Etiquette.” “Financial Etiquette” is the proper usage of The UTENSIL that leads to the maximum utilization of money. Money is your employee, therefore you are a manager. Money can work for you or money can work against you. Whether your money works for or against you, it is completely dependent on The Utensil which is your thoughts concerning money. Money is also a medium of exchange that is “Invested” or “Spent” that “Adds To” or “Takes Away” from the livelihood of an individual or a group of people.
To have a lack of understanding concerning money is disrespect for money
Apostle Steven Moffett
Some of us abuse and mismanage our employees. We do not have an intimate relationship with the employee nor do we have what they can do for us…
Who is your favorite employee? George Washington, Benjamin Franklin or Theodore Roosevelt.
Many of the so called, “Wealthy” people are those who are in positions where their lives are being magnified and examined. They are not truly “Wealthy”, there are merely celebrities who have been marketed into a position of notoriety. Their money accumulation is on a large scale, however their debt accumulation is much, much greater. Debt accumulation is not limited to the lack of finances.
Thus, the NBA lockout ensues….
The Habit of Savings
Our habitual thinking causes us to fathom how we are going to “Spend” our money in comparison to how we are going to “Save” our money. We have already “Spent” the money in our minds before it has even physically touched our hands.
The rule is that if a man follows a systematic habit of saving a definite proportion of all money he earns or receives in other ways, he is practically sure to place himself in position of financial independence. If he saves nothing, he is absolutely sure to never be financially independent, no matter how much his income may be.
Financial empowerment leads to business opportunities that lead to financial freedom or independence.
