Having no money is not easy. It’s a pity if you can’t have money to pay for your train fare to even go to your church and serve your God. Much worse, cheat on your train fare to go to your church. How can you say that you are blessed and being able to serve your God? That kind of situation must change. You cannot do bad deeds on your left hand and do good deeds on your right hand at the same time. If you serve your God, the blessedness should reflect on how you lead your life through your deeds.
We are raised to believed that you have to be poor to be pious and worthy to God. That you are blessed because you are poor and miserable. That the poor people are the only worthy before the sight of God.
That is a very bad mindset. If you are poor, it is because you failed the expectation of your God. Nothing else.
I had an ex-friend on Facebook living in Denmark. I would like to share this story so that you can see how bad this mindset is. He told me that he hated the rich people so much. They are always sucking money from poor people. He said he don’t want to become rich. He don’t need much money and he is happy.
Really? Is he happy? Or he is only justifying his incapacity that he cannot do any better? So I said: “It’s good for you, bro. You are living in a society where you don’t need to do hard work. Your government will cloth you, shelter you and feed you. If you call that a good life, that’s great! And who the hell is the government squeezing the money from to feed you, shelter you and cloth you? Yes, that’s right. The people who earns money, they are squeezed to pay the taxes from their hard-earned money, from sweat and tears. You want them to be happy to pay their taxes. You want them to be happy to feed you. And at the same time, you hated them because they have money more than you.”
For me, I came to realize that it is easier to do good things if you have the means – yes, you can do more good deeds! If you were able to solve your money problem, you can solve other issues more easily. It’s not that money can take problems away, it’s just that you can solve other problems with style.
That is why I’m so decided to take charge of my finances.
This article and other next articles can serve as a guide for my quest to financial freedom. These were part of my game plan or road map that I put into writing so that I can go over, review and refer to. With a game plan, I can monitor if I am on the right track with my financial recovery.
If you are reading this article, you will also take your steps to your financial freedom. I believe I can offer valuable information that you can implement and follow so as to avoid the pitfalls I’ve encountered. In short, you don’t have to go through the hard lessons I had, but rather have a clear view to your own financial freedom.
You should be aware though, that what works for me, might not work for you. We all have different situations, strengths and needs. A piece of advice can be a lifesaver to one person but useless to another. Ponder the things I will share and decide for yourself if you can incorporate them in your life.
