You are not broke and you will never be broke. It is your choice to label yourself broke. You are not broke — you are alive.
Be a man about everything and enjoy the process of not having, and work on getting the things you want while you appreciate some of the things you do have.
The only thing that stands between you and your money is time. Five years from now; things will be different from what “is” now (only if you take action).
Don’t seek out things you’re not prepared to receive. Taking action prepares you to receive what you expect to receive. You can’t just sit and expect to get something you’re not prepared for.
Being ready to receive what you want means you take action, the action you take now prepares you for the things you will receive tomorrow. But, you won’t receive, until you believe that what you are doing now will lead to you receiving what you want.
Grow from your mistakes
Whatever you’ve done in the past — learn from it and grow. It doesn’t matter what it is; you can’t go back and change it. Mistakes are tools for growth and character building, so use them to your advantage —instead of regretting or blaming.
You’re what you are, acknowledge your nature and understand that you’re not different and you’re nothing new to the face of the earth. Just be, just learn, grow and appreciate.
You will suffer if you keep questioning life and nature. Life is meant to be lived, live your life and enjoy your life now with what you have, soon you will be gone — there will be no second chance.
Are you really broke?
Maybe “broke” to you is when you have less than $100, but to someone it might be less day $2000. So tell me who is broke?
It all depends on the lifestyle you choose and what kind of people you have in your life. You have to spend your money wisely, and it doesn’t matter how much you make, it is the mindset behind the money that counts.
Live within your means, living beyond your means will cause you to feel like what you have is not enough. You will be miserable if you don’t appreciate what you have. You will suffer when you compare yourself with those who have more than you or those who look better than you.
Everybody looks good on the outside because it is easy to pretend, and no one will tell you exactly how they feel inside. There are many wealthy people who are miserable — they look at you and they envy you because they think your life is easy — but they don’t know that you’re also looking at them thinking they got it good.
Don’t let your ego make you feel worthless … stop going around using the word “broke” to describe your situation to anyone — including yourself.
Don’t disrespect yourself because you don’t have the money, the house, the car or the girl etc. You always have something that someone doesn’t have, no matter what it is, it counts.
People will only respect you as much as you respect yourself, not more than or less than.
Self-respect is about being comfortable with who you are, where you are, and what you have. Money doesn’t make you a man, what makes you a man is the ability to respect yourself, to honor your values and everything you stand for, even when you don’t have nothing.
Respect the man you are today, don’t sacrifice your values or violate your own rules for the sake of money or attention.
Money is good for all of us, money can do a lot of things, but it won’t buy you none of the qualities that makes you a real man.
It’s good to have nice things, and be able to pay your bills. But, the majority of us only feel good when we have something. We feel validated when we have a car, a job or a girlfriend.
This is why there are so many people who don’t feel alive because of all the things they don’t have, and all along they forget one thing: death… It is coming, whether you’re ready or not.
Make the most of what you have today.
Things change overtime and people change as well. Therefore, you shouldn’t rely on things that change, you will get hurt if you do. Rely on life, life doesn’t change, it might end physically but it continues spiritually.
Validate yourself by the thought of being alive and appreciate…
Be patient, it will come eventually
Nothing comes easy in life, and even growth takes time because it’s a life-time process. So why be in a hurry? Time will pass anyway, so start now and do the work even when it sucks.
I know it is hard being alone trying to make ends meet, it is hard. But being alone and doing nothing is worse because it makes your life hard and it will make it even harder as time goes by. Do something today, put your heart in it and focus, commit yourself and work.
Being alive is enough, most of us want to get rich now, we lack Patience, and we don’t invest in the time by putting in work consistently.
Be patient and play your part and the universe will respond.
Your character is key
Nobody is interested in you until you give them a reason to be. Lose the desire to be liked and accepted.
Be yourself and appreciate those who love and accept you as you are.
Build a strong character while you work on accumulating wealth. A strong character will help you filter all the people and situations that have the potential to cause you drama.
Work on improving yourself, take it one step at a time. If you focus on wealth alone, you will be taken advantage of by those who can spot your weaknesses through your character.
Don’t worry about it
Don’t worry about it, no matter what it is. Everything has an ending point, no matter how long it takes.
The choice is always yours whether you like it or not, it is your life, your mind and your body.
Be a man and stop using the word “broke”. I know it’s just a word, but words have power when you believe them.
Instead of saying: “I’m broke.”
Say: “I’m strong, and brave enough to handle myself though it all.”
Remember, you’re counted amongst those who still have a chance to try again because you’re alive. Take another shot and change your fate. Your destiny is YOU.
Your fellow God,
