Are you sick and tired of being broke. I don’t even like that word anymore. Broke, it’s a bad word. I was a broke affiliate marketer for a long time until I learned that the key issue I had was actually my relationship with money.
Perhaps you have a broken relationship with money? Perhaps you are feeling you never have enough money. I had a very broken relationship with money and didn’t know it. I had no clue. All I knew was I was broke and didn’t have enough. So much so that my little family had to split. I had to separate from my daughter because I couldn’t support her. Broke my heart! I ate a lot of beanie weenies, sometimes without the weenie! I reached a breaking point and something had to give. I got so sick and tired of being broke and was at my wit’s end.
I began looking into manifesting money. I though it was craziness, but I was at a point of desperation. I had sold everything I had of value to get a buck to survive and I was running out of options.
I was constantly searching for ways to skimp and save. Lesson number one I learned. Skimping on things, pinching that penny so hard was about the worst thing I could do. I am not saying that saving is bad. I am just saying that when you do this, your focus is on what you don’t have as opposed to what you do have. Bringing in more money is a better solution than pinching your pennies so hard.
I was trying also to build an online business with little success. I did not give up that dream, but that is another story, sort of. So, I began reading and studying this law of attraction thing and manifesting money.
I have learned that to live an abundant life takes great faith, faith in a higher power. Some call it source, some call it spirituality, we call it by many things. I call it by God, but you can call it what you want, we all come from the same place!
The more I read, the more I learned my relationship with money was really screwed up and my faith was so small. I was spending a lot of time focusing on what I didn’t have and spent many a fearful night of not being able to even eat the next day. No faith in other words. We were not created to live in fear and worry. Focus on what we don’t have I have since learned, just brings more of what we don’t have.
Like any relationship, there are elements that have to be in place for it to thrive. I teach about romantic relationships and how to build them. How could I have missed the boat that the same elements needed to be present with my relationship with money.
I had never considered a relationship with money or that such a thing even existed until a year or so ago. I would like to share some of what I have learned with you! If you are tired of being broke, read on

Signs of a Scarcity Mentality
It’s hard to get ahead in this economy
I can’t afford it
The big corporations have all the money
People can’t afford my prices
I need to offer discounts to get business
I have to sacrifice to get ahead
I have to scrimp and save to get anything
The only way to have anything is to work hard
A penny saved is a penny earned
Most people with money have done it by cheating
There are no shortcuts to wealth
If I have money than someone else is doing without
I have to have a plan and set goals.
– –Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into. Wayne Dyer – –
A scarcity mentality is one of not enough. When you focus on not enough, you become more and more aware of it. It begins to consume you. You hold onto every dollar. Here is a newsflash. When your fist are holding onto something, your hands aren’t open to receive more of it. Sort of the same in love and affairs of the heart if you think about it.
The truth is money is not a scarce resource. If you believe that, perhaps you should question your beliefs. When you think that you have less because others have more, such as corporations, you are in essence thinking that money is limited. How much another has really has nothing to do with what you have. Corporations and other business really aren’t taking from you personally and you are in control of your financial destiny when it comes right down to it.
When you feel guilt for spending, again you are operating from a scarcity mentality. When you think only the lucky and smart or those that are in the right loop or right place at the right time are the only ones that make money, again, same mentality.
When you believe the only way to make money is through a real job and dream chasing never works, you are limiting your options. If you feel hard work is the only way, and money can’t come without it, your belief may be limiting you.
The bottom line here is this. There is an abundance of resources in this world and money is one of them. Money is not evil. If you feel humble because you have struggled think again. How much more could you help those in need if in fact you had more money?
Of course money can’t buy happiness and there is more to life than money, but that will be a different topic, because this scarcity mentality goes beyond money. Many have the mentality in other areas of their life, such as love.
– -An abundance mentality is when one believes there is enough to go around and there is no limits. Again this not only applies to money, but love as well. One seeking love from a place of abundance would say “There are plenty of fish in the sea”. A scarcity mentality would say “All the good ones are taken”.
Abundant people don’t believe it when they see it, they see it when they believe it!
When it comes to money, an abundance mentality doesn’t have limits as to the how, when, where, who or what from which money will come. It’s open to all possibilities. There is not attachment to a particular outcome.
One may feel trapped in a job and still barely getting by. They see few options if their attitude is not in abundance. They seek solutions and get frustrated. They may only see getting a second job as an option or a better paying job.
Those that come from a place of abundance will be open to many options. They do not hold onto a particular outcome. Going back to school, converting a hobby into a paying opportunity, changing careers completely. Many many options come to those who open their thoughts to enough to go around from not enough.
Signs of an Abundant Mentality
You don’t fear competition
You rejoice in the success of others
You are willing to help others get what they want
You don’t feel guilt with spending
You can spend you last dollar fearlessly
You don’t worry how the bills will get paid
You share the work of others enthusiastically
You believe in Miracles.
So summary of this blog post is this. If you are a struggling affiliate marketer or struggling in any area and still broke, it’s not always changing your external circumstances as much as it is about changing your internal programming. You were taught limited possibilities in life. You were taught some things just aren’t possible.
