Money is a magnifier.
That is an awesome thought! And so true. Money is an amazing thing. It can create, and destroy. It can magnify and clarify. And it can intensify and multiply you.
But many networkers I have observed, and with my own experience, that many people who have never really had that much money before can be perceived differently once they have “hit it big” in MLM. Many people say, “They have changed…they are not the same people”.
Oh really? We need to take a closer look.
Most people today live in a financial pressure cooker. Their world revolves around that 8x10 envelope with a paycheck in it. And the lack of money magnifies their concern for the future, and their concern for even survival.
Money also magnifies their emotions and feelings outwardly. Financial Pressure can do some interesting things to relationships and marriages. And when the slightest “crack in the armor” appears, and the real person starts to show up, money magnifies that tremendously.
Most people today are clueless to the fact that the lack of and the abundance of money can magnify everything about them, good or bad. And many times, money can work against you as far as your life. It magnifies things that people are not aware of.
Ok…. what are those things?
Money magnifies three things that will determine if you truly are wealthy or not. As my mentor taught me…”Being rich is about possessions. Being wealthy is about what you do with them”. In other words, being rich is about having a lot of money. Being wealthy is about having lifestyle to go with it.
And money can magnify your focus to a large extent in you life. There are many rich people out there who don’t live a wealthy lifestyle. Their money magnifies their fear of losing it, or not being worthy of it, or fear of not being able to repeat it.
The three things that money magnifies are:
1)“Your relationship to money”.
You either have a scarcity relationship with money, or you have an increase relationship with it. Most of how we view money we heard growing up, and it was magnified in our life:
“What do you think I am made of…money?”
“Money doesn’t grow on trees!”
“Money is the root to all evil”.
“Things are tight this month”.
“I have enough money to pay my bills”.
THAT is scarcity thinking about money, and that is magnified in your life, and it then is magnified even more with the lack of money being constant.
If you have suddenly have money, and have never had it before, and you have a scarcity relationship with money, that will be magnified in your life. And the money will go eventually away if you don’t change your relationship.
You need to have a healthy relationship and expectation for money. If you do, increase will be magnified in your life, and the money will magnify that fact by showing up in boat loads.
2)“ Your relationship with others”.
Money magnifies how you really interact with people. If you have the financial pressure as most do, the lack of money will magnify that in your conversations, and who you hang around with. Money magnifies the concern in conversations, and thoughts. Listen to how a lot of people obsess about lack of money. And that obsession is magnified in their life.
And if you want to find out how people really relate to others, watch them when they are down and out, and watch them when they are financially secure. Most people will not act the same. Money magnifies and clarifies your relation ship with others by your words, emotions, and how you interact, with and without pressure.
I have seen many people who suddenly hit it big, treat others differently than they did when they were on their way up. The true relationship with others emerges and is magnified with the money being in overabundance. Make sure that when you hit it big, money magnifies your ability to treat people the same no matter what. THAT will be success seeds worth sowing.
3)“Your relationship with yourself”.
Simply, money magnifies how you feel about you. I have seen many people when they get money, completely change physically, due to tucks, snips, lifts, augmentation, and lipo. They did not like how they looked, and wanted to fix it. When money showed up, that discontent was magnified, and intensified.
If you feel good about yourself, money will not really change you much. Money will magnify that to everyone. If you are not happy with you, money will magnify that fact as well.
How do you REALLY feel about you? Get a lot of money and you will find out quickly, as it is being magnified to you in your life.
Money truly is a magnifier. It will enlarge and put in focus what most people don’t know about you, good or bad. Make sure that money magnifies only the best about you, as that is what you want to sat in focus, and be seen crystal clear. Money will magnify and expose who you really are. Nature will naturally take care of that.
How do I know?
MONEY = Magnification Of Nature Exposing YOU.
MLM success truly exposes the REAL You.
