This time in 2017 I was broke. It was during this time that I learned more about money and finding your path than any book could ever tell me.
I’m not rich yet. But I don’t have to worry about money like I used to. I also have control over my time.
When I was broke I was stuck in a loop of constant fear.
My time was of little value to me. If I could find something that took me 10 hours so that I could make $70, I’d do it.
Because $70 would give me a temporary fix. That is until I paid my phone bill. Then it was back to surviving.
And this is how most people live their entire lives. Only having moments of peace while surviving the rest.
That is the same thing as being a ghost. The only difference is that you’ve got a soul and the breath of life.
When I was broke I was never myself.
If you invited me out to dinner, I had to move the world to make it happen.
When I was broke I was selfish in the worst of ways.
I couldn’t help out my family or even give myself to my craft like I wanted.
It wasn’t until recently that I was reminded of those days. One of my accounts that I never use was overdrawn.
Instead of stressing about it. I simply transferred $200 from my business account. Problem solved and nothing to worry about.
Back when I was broke I could never fully give myself to what I was doing. I would only do something if I could make a few bucks.
This resulted in me hardly leaving my house. That is unless I was flipping furniture on Craigslist. Then I’d run out of the house like my life depended on it.
Now that I don’t have to worry about my bills. I can focus on my vision. I’m a completely different person.
Different in that I am more honest than ever before. I’ve learned that…
- You’ll never be your true self until you have money.
- That the holy men who live in poverty are just imitations of holy men. That to really be godly, you shouldn’t have to worry about money.
Because once you’ve got money, you can pursue any path that you want. But of course, the ego-driven religious people will call you unholy for that.
But I’ve lived in both worlds and have learned that to be truly godly. YOU need money first and then the path will be pure.
When you lack money, you’re desperate and lack mental clarity. And desperation is the real Devil of this world.
It turns you into a shadow of what you could really be. Instead of making the right decision you try to save a few bucks.
You trade what could be for an easy life. But there isn’t anything easy about being broke. If you want to…
- Be the best version of yourself.
- Take care of your friends and family.
- And live your life to the fullest every single day.
You’ll never do that until you let go of your fear and start making money. You see, the Devil isn’t someone with horns and a pitchfork.
He is the fear and desperation that you live in daily. Your birthright is to rule your reality and be of service to the world.
But you will only do that by giving yourself fully without fear. And the one Truth that you can’t ignore is that money is a requirement.
Sure, you can retreat to woods and be one with nature. You can meditate everyday.
You can even pray constantly to your God all day.
But if you lack money you’ll either become the normie you claim to not be or your family will have to take care of you.
Neither of those is godly is it?
The only path to being holy and godlike is by having money. From there you can pursue your path whether spiritual or worldly.
Being broke taught me that your account really does tell you the Truth.
When my account was in the low hundreds I wasn’t being useful to the world. Of course, I felt like I was giving my all to my path.
In reality, I was doing the complete opposite.
Whether you’re broke right now or have money I don’t care. But if you seek anything greater for yourself then take this article to heart.
You can give so much more than you are right now.
