Find a time and place of solitude. Look into the distance, and into the future. Visualize the tomorrow you are going to build -- and begin to build that tomorrow, today.

Because no matter how hard you work, nor how much you persevere, sweat, struggle, and bounce back, you will never be able to accumulate money if you believe somehow, even deep in your subconscious, that you don't deserve it.

He confessed that his biggest issue with money was that he felt like he wasn't "good enough" and somehow "didn't deserve it," even though he is one of the kindest, most generous people you will ever have the pleasure to meet. He hated asking his customers to pay him for his products and services and also hated asking his manager for a raise.

Society, schools, politics, and the news media instill us with the idea that "rich people are corrupt and greedy" and that "money is the root of all evil." Even religion puts forth these ideas--I'm sure you've heard "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to Heaven."

These negative beliefs deeply permeate our psyches and represent a huge emotional hurdle for many people. Many of us associate wealth with greed and selfishness and view rich people with fear, suspicion, and resentment, wondering whom they must have had to hurt "on the way up" in order to make all of that money.

Money has two primary purposes:

  2. To store value, so that people can save it and trade it at a later date.
