If You Love it, Let it go

The great story teller, Jesus, tells a story about a man who gave his servants some money. Most people don’t realize it but this story is really taking about your money mindset. Here it is in its entirety. Wise servant who wasn’t scare to use his money, entered into the mindsets the Lord. Louise Hay calls it the Totality of Possibilities. While the last servant allowed fear to control him, which was very displeasing. For God has not given us the spirit of fear.

Matthew 25:14-30 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Parable of the Talents

Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.

“After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ 

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ 

“The man with the two talents also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.’ 

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ 

“Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ 

“His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 

“‘Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’”

Progress

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Many times we measure success based off what a person has or what some did. However I like to look at things a little differently. Is there growth. Being rich but fearful of loosing your money all the time, is not considered success in my book. True success comes when you actually move forward in all facets of life. Mental growth would automatically bring about financial and physical growth. In this moment, you might not be as rich as you hoped or as famous as you hoped. But can you see the progress in getting there? You’re on your way to reaching your goal, and that’s success.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. I love and approve of myself. I choose to feel good about myself. My life is divinely guided and I am always headed in the best direction. I’m stronger, wiser, and better. I’m growing in Wonderful ways. My life is amazing. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Pay Attention to Your Money

Hey y’all! This is a late post but I needed to get it out. Money is just like someone your dating. It needs your constant attention, or it will run away from you. People at church always say that the Lord blesses them with more money because they pay tithes. However, I don’t it’s anything miraculous that God does other than helping that person focus more on their money. It takes budgeting to give 10% of your income. Just that focus and attention to your money alone makes it wanna stay with you. The church says if you don’t pay tithes, you are cursed with a curse. But really the curse is money runs away from you, if you don’t pay attention to it. Case in point. I always believed that I’m just not good with money. I just swipe and spend then let the chips fall where they may. I was making more than I ever had but I was still broke all the time. So I set my vision board for $6000 a month income. I affirmed it everyday but still broke all the time. My account kept going in the negative every month. Finally at the beginning of this year. After listening to Jim Rohn and other people, I set my money to spend 70% of my income and give 10% to charity, 10% to save for active capital, 10% to save as passive capital. However I was in the hole so much that started where Jim Rohn said start from; spend 97% , 1% to charity, 1% active capital, 1% passive capital. It’s a start! Doing this has caused me to pay attention to my money. So it has been staying with me. Saying all that, to say as I looked through my bank accounts from last year. I was already making $6000 a month and didn’t know it. Lesson: pay attention to you money or it will leave you.

Money Affirmations: I’m a Money Magnet! I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. I deserve money. Being wealthy is my birthright. I am rich! My income is constantly increasing.

Mid Course Corrections

If you make a mistake don’t feel bad, just learn from it and move on. I heard Jim Rohn talk about the astronauts and how they had to make corrections on their way to the moon. The mistakes didn’t stop them because they still successfully made it to the moon. You can make it to. Take joy in learning from your mistakes.

You’re Getting What You Expect!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers. Many times we don’t realize it, but everything that happens to us is a product of what we expect. It’s almost like we enjoy having bad days, just so we can tell somebody we’re having a bad day. In the same vain, people say I feel a tingle in my throat, I’m gonna be sick. Then they end up actually being sick. You’re getting what you expect. Some people think and say jokingly, I’m clumsy or I’m not good with this or that. Then it actually comes true for them. Why not change it around and expect only good. Even feel the tingle in our throats, we can still say, I never get sick. . . Turn your focus to the best possible outcome.

Learn How To Receive!

Good Evening Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! The Church always says, ” If you give, God will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing to you.” But what’s the purpose if we don’t allow ourselves to receive. Many times we pray and pray for increase, but God has already poured out the blessings. We just have not opened up to receive. Abraham Hicks calls this the vortex. Everything we have ever asked for is waiting for us. We only have open our minds and have the feelings like we already have it. I ways once like that. I would give and give and give myself broke but when someone asked me if I needed something, I would say no. I would never allow others to give me anything. I would allow myself to even ask God for help. As I learn and grow, I have slowly allowed myself to receive. It is my hope that everyone will allow themselves to receive.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. Everyone is always helpful. I am open and worthy to receive good. My life is wonderful. I live in a safe and secure world. I am willing to receive my blessings which have been poured out for me. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
