Fear of not Having Money

When fear of not having money arises we should not rush to get a job but ask ourselves " What is the solution to this problem?". We might think a job is the solution but the author says it isn't. A job is really a short-term solution to a long-term problem.

Instead of just getting up and going to work because not having the money to pay your bills is scaring you, ask yourself, ‘Is working harder at this the best solution to this problem?’ Most people are too afraid to rationally think things through and instead run out the door to a job they hate.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE BOOK

Life is the best teacher of all. Most of the time it does not talk to you. It just pushes you around and each push says "Wake up, there is something I want you to learn"

If you learn life's lessons, you will grow. Otherwise, it will keep pushing you. People respond to this in two ways. Some just let life push them around. others get angry and push back( against their boss, job)because they do not know life is pushing them.

There is a third type of people that welcome life pushing them, learn few lessons and move on. Because these people want to learn something.

The reason many people are rich is not because of desire but because of fear. they think that money can eliminate the fear of being poor so they collect tons of money, only to find the fear gets worse.

Fear of no money motivates people to work. Then once people get their paycheck, greed and desire lead them to think about all the wonderful things that they can buy with it.

Then this pattern is set.
