I talked about having money blueprints and how they have been such a powerful influence on virtually everyone’s life. Geographical, Cultural, Spiritual, Gender, Economical, Spiritual…..one of these played a huge part in how we view money.
For instance, when I was young, I remember my mom cooking flower tortillas in vegetable oil just to put some food in our stomach. I remember wearing water shoes to school everyday and had my “friends” spew hateful rhetoric at me because I was widely known as the “poor boy.” The days where we couldn’t even afford to have water at my house so my dad had to fill water jugs in the restrooms at his job.
See, you can see how this could’ve ultimately doomed me. Look at the southside of Chicago, Camden, Gary, Flint, Detroit and so many other places around America where African Americans have generationally lived and continue to live in ravaged cities just narrowly surviving.
So, how come I’m the only person in my family who had the ability to escape that blueprint and create my own? Moving forward, how come I’ve been shunned from my family because I don’t “act like” them and I’m hated by my brother?
I choose NOT to live in the past influences of my life.
There are some techniques and behaviors that you can engage in so you can begin diagnosing and resolving the problems in your life that’s currently happening because of past actions and blueprints.
Here are several podcasts to get you started.
