When was the last time you held a $50 note in your hand? Unless you are renovating and paying your tradies cash, then probably quite a while ago.
These days, it’s just a digital number in your online bank account that goes up and down. Down when you spend it, up when you work for it.
The up part is directly proportional to the amount of time and energy you put into your job. So, you could say money is a measurement of energy, right?
That’s exactly what it is to me, a measurement of energy.
You can create ‘money traps’ to harness that energy and put it to use. Like you would a solar panel to harvest the suns energy or a wind turbine to catch the winds energy.
Property is one perfect example of a money trap. Once you set up a great investment property then it produces ‘energy’ without you having to spend any energy. That energy grows over time and increases exponentially.
Once you have accumulated enough energy from your money trap, you can use it for whatever you choose.
If you harness enough energy, then this is where the real power of the energy comes to life.
This is where you can begin to have the power to change people’s lives, starting with your own.
Imagine the feeling of walking into a children’s cancer ward and paying for the end of life wishes for all of the children in that ward. Or having enough money to build a new school for a village in a 3rd world country. This has been a dream of mine since travelling the world and visiting remote surfing destinations like the one in the photo above.
Were you told as a child that:
Money is the root of all evil
Money doesn’t grow on trees
You have to work hard for your money?
Then if you still repeat these words and hold onto these stories as your money mantra, then this is a money block and by holding onto this belief you will never be able to create enough money to build freedom for your family or pass on a legacy to your children.
These beliefs are a clear misunderstanding of how money works and is a belief centered around fear. You will never hear a philanthropist say ‘money is the root of all evil’ as they hand over millions of dollars to their favourite charity.
I mean, if you wake up every single day and pull yourself early out of bed to go to work and spend your entire day working, every weekday, for 46 weeks a year for 40 straight years, then you do place money at the top of your priorities list.
So, your new ‘money story’ is: Money can empower me to create freedom for myself, my family and anyone who I choose to help and share this energy with.
Your decisions can break the beliefs that the amount of money you earn is directly proportional to the amount of time and energy you put into a job. Create some money traps. If property interests you, then learn about property, understand how it can benefit your future and start the journey to set yourself up to be free from having to work for your money.
As I always say, making money from property is a long term process, the best time to start is now, the second best time is tomorrow.
