It’s likely you’re being brainwashed to be poor.
Here’s a recent example.
I watched the movie “Coco” (2017).
If you enjoyed it (like I did) that’s fine.
BUT, there’s one part in the story that is absolutely dangerous for financial freedom seekers.
Did you spot it?
It’s when Miguel’s hero, Ernesto de la Cruz (the successful singer), was discovered to be a liar, thief, and murderer.
Think about it that for a second.
To be successful, Ernesto de la Cruz stole his best friend’s music, killed him, and left his family to be a success.
“Do whatever it takes”, he says.
Now, if you had ZERO negative reaction to this part of the movie then it’s likely you’re already brainwashed to be poor.
In other words, you completely accepted this narrative as an “accurate” way people get rich.
And because you accepted this as accurate then it’s likely that deep down inside you do not want to get rich.
After all, who wants to be a rich jerk like Ernesto de la Cruz?
This internal conflict is probably why you’re struggling to be financially free.
And guess what?
Movies are not the only source of “poor brainwashing”.
Growing up, your parents probably expressed their excuses and blamed others for their lack of wealth.
And don’t forget the “poor brainwashing” found on TV, school, and inside your peer group.
Now, I’m not saying that there are no evil rich people. There are some.
But the overwhelming majority of rich entrepreneurs are problem solvers. They found an opportunity to create value. They made the world better.
In fact, I’d argue that poorness is the leading cause of crime.
Ever see a poor person kill another person for food or money? I have.
The point is: If you’re not yet financially free you probably have some internal conflict and “poor brainwashing” that you have not yet released from your memory.
If you don’t take this seriously then you’re fighting an uphill battle. Because I’ve discovered that you don’t really forget anything.
Even the smallest memories are stored deep inside your brain.
Ever smell a random scent and remember an event years ago?
Ever hear an old song and get thrown back in time?
Could it be possible that any time money is brought up, some “poor brainwashing” memory is triggered in your brain? You bet.
How To Release Any Poor Brainwashing
If you’re not aware of the poor brainwashing you have, here’s an exercise that may help.
- Write down, “I earn $10,000 a month” a hundred times in a row.
Now, notice what you feel.
Do you feel worthy? Does it feel wrong to make this much? Does it feel impossible?
Any negative feelings you notice are “poor brainwashing” that’s stuck deep down in your mind.
To release it you must write out what you feel and then accurately question them.
Is it true? What are examples that my beliefs are wrong? Who has proved these wrong? What is the new accurate belief?
Can you identify the “poor brainwashing” behind it.
Maybe things like: “it’s wrong to make millions”, “scam”, “making money is bad”, “selling is bad”, “personality changes are irrelevant”
If anything like that aligns with you, then you’ve got some work to do.
Financial Freedom Brainwashing
Once you release the “poor brainwashing” then and only then can you pursue financial freedom.
After all, now you do not have any internal conflicts holding you back.
Here are some mindsets that have helped me the most:
- People pay me money for solving their problems. The bigger the problem I solve and the more people I help… the more value (and wealth) I create.
- Money is not a tool to compare myself to others. It helps me create more solutions to solve bigger problems.
- I don’t believe in shortcuts or easy money. Extraordinary results demand extraordinary effort. Wealth is a process, not an event.
- I’m 100% responsible for my life. I don’t blame or complain. Taking full responsibility means I am the creator of my life and can make all my dreams possible.
Identify the “poor brainwashing” that’s still stuck in your brain and holding you back.
Remove and replace old beliefs with more accurate perspectives that serve you.
Then pursue financial freedom without limits.
