MLM Success and “Filthy Rich” – Negative Connotation
I saw an ad on TrafficSwarm with the heading “Do you want to be Filthy Rich?” That got me to thinking about mlm success and “filthy rich” – negative connotation.
The first I really heard and understood about negative connotations about money was at a presentation by Randy Gage in Tucson when I was with a prior company. He used word pictures and stories and also used the movie Titanic as an example. Fortunately, I never liked that movie and refuse to see it again. Then I understood why.
The message of the movie is basically that the rich people are boring and stupid and evil and the poor people are interesting, fun, resourceful, and good. With that kind of an attitude, how can anyone ever get ahead – as soon as they get some wealth they’ll lose it because their subconscious mind will say it’s bad and create situations to get rid of wealth or stop it from accumulating.
The TrafficSwarm advertiser may just be setting himself up for failure – when people feel that having money is dirty, they tend to self-sabotage themselves in accumulating money. Even if that expression is used in jest. They will get so far and then start to fail. It reminds me of “washing your mouth out with soap”. Got to clean up, money is dirty…
It takes awareness and work to change around that thinking. Often we cannot do it alone. I can tell you that the best way is to turn off all negativity around you – TV, newspapers, radio, etc. – and substitute the negative thoughts with positive ones. Possibly you cannot do this alone. I couldn’t.
And also, we need to find out where our negative thoughts, programming comes from, acknowledge it, and let it go. This can be a life-long, ongoing process.
And, guess what? You might find the real you inside you. I did. Still working on it, but doing much, much better.
Wishing you the means to get rid of the mlm success and “filthy rich’ negative connotation and embrace all the great things you can do with money,
