Mike Todd once upon a time expressed his thoughts about being broke very simply:
Being broke is a temporary situation. Being poor is a state of mind.
This is so very true. As a single parent from the time my sons were 8 and 4, I felt broke 29 days of each month. My paycheck arrived electronically on the first of the month, and all payments were removed electronically within 48 hours!
I felt rich for those 48 hours and broke for the remainder of the month. Not a good way to live!
That was 1983 till the mid ’90’s. Then I felt broke and poor for most of the month because I went on to a commission-based life. It is no wonder that I am doing what I do with my company today–helping people create peaceful and powerful money relationships. And that is where I am today with my own entrepreneurial lack of stability. But it is different. I have the greatest faith in God and the Universe that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing–my mission in life–and that all will be provided from now on! It is a great feeling. I do what I need to do and know that the money will flow, and it does.
I had a poor state of mind for so many years because that was what my life was. I raised my children. Had multiple fantastic careers, and now I have arrived at what my path in life is to be. I do not always know where the path is going, and sometimes I am broke, but I know it is a temporary situation. I will never ever think that I am poor again because I am not. I am so filled with a richness of life–the people, the environment, the thoughts. I am so very rich. Think about you–are you rich or are you poor?
Be rich and chase away the stress in your life!
