Those with a Wealth Multiplier Lifestyle Wealth Multiplier Lifestyle Keep Focused on financial goals and are not easly swayed by emotional desires.
One of the key things about health multipilers are, they know to manage their emotions when it comes to desires that can derail them from their financial goals.
Most are familiar with that famous saying “Money is the root of all evil”. As it happens, this is really a proverb from the Bible that is often miquoted. That actual verse states, “….. the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.”
Can you see how this changes the entire connotation and perception of wealth portayed by this saying ? it is not money that is the root of all evil, it is the love of money. This is an emotional problem. The problem lies in our emotional approach to money and wealth.
If we have an unhealthy desire for money it can supplants everything that is important in our life, our spirituality and connection to God, our family, our friends, our cause and our principles and live in greed. Our emotions become distorted and cause problems for ourselves and others close to us.
Again we can see that at the core it is an emotional issue. Loving money more than anything else, fearing money, having the mindset of proverty that we do not have enough of it, the desires that come with money, all these things are emotions that can cause us to lose control of our finance. Once we lose control, we lose the ability to achieve our financial goals.
