7 Surefire Ways to Make Sure You Stay Broke
By Randy Gage
1) Take All the Free Cheese in the Mousetrap
Believe everything should come for free. Don't give the money back if the salesclerk gives you an extra $5 by mistake, find a way to wire your house for cable without paying for it, and help yourself to an extra newspaper when no one is looking. Always look for something for nothing and be happy when you get away with stealing the cheese.
2) Tell Yourself Daily How Broke You Are
Make sure the words you say are negative. I'm reminded of a friend, who daily runs through a litany of bills he has to pay, and how he doesn't know how he will ever find the money to cover them, and how every time things really start going good for him, something always happens to set him back. Well of course it does, he tells himself on a daily basis how bad things are, which programs that belief right into his subconscious mind.
Some people think it's polite or a good way to fit in by speaking of themselves in demeaning terms. Statements like, "I'm always a day late and a dollar short" may endear you to other broke people, but they will repel prosperity and become self-fulfilling prophecies. So if you're going to make sure you stay completely unfulfilled and never reach a higher level of success, repeat the following negative affirmations on a daily basis to really anchor it in your mind:
* I never have any money.
* I just can’t seem to get ahead in life.
* Bad things always happen to me.
3) Hang Around People Whose Lives are Desolate
Think about this... If you take the five people who are closest to you in your life, add up their yearly income and divide it by five you will have your annual salary. Coincidental mathematics? Probably not.
So the third way to make sure you never break-free is to hang-on to relationships with people who are constantly complaining about their life, blaming others for their misfortunes, and whose lives are pathetic.
4) Never Have Any Expectations for Success
Make sure you become a “Negative Nancy or Ned” and anytime an opportunity arises, tell yourself a whole list of reasons why it won’t work. Here are a few examples to get you started...
* I’m not smart enough to do that.
* That just can’t be possible.
* I don’t have enough time, or money for that.
How you react to opportunity is determined almost entirely by your mindset. What you expect in life. Of all the tools you can use to stay broke, your mind is the most powerful.
5) Become Extremely Obsessive with “Getting a Deal”
Broke people rarely purchase things at a fair exchange of value and believe the world owes them. So make sure your sole basis for making a buying decision revolves around how much money you will save, rather than how it will add value and enhance your life. Make an extreme effort in your negotiating tactics looking for a one-sided advantage.
6) Think All Rich People are Evil and Mean
Broke people usually have a negative energy and connotation surrounding money. Obsess about how you are unable to do things that require money and think those who have money are rich snobs, thieves, lucky – or just plain evil and mean. Having a negative association of money will completely repel it from you.
7) Never Question Anything You Hear or Have Been Told
Take comfort in the fact that you are not alone, most of the masses are sick, broke and unhappy too. If living a life of quiet desperation is good enough for them, well it should be good enough for you, right? So drudge through each day, doing what you’re told, and what’s expected of you to do. Forget how to think. The media, government, religion, and other people have been telling you WHAT to think for so long, that you really have no need to know HOW to think.
If you want to succeed at staying where you are in life right now -- never question what you read and hear. Continue to always do and believe everything you've been told to. Remember, questioning things, thinking differently and trying new strategies is only for rich eccentric weirdo's, like me, Bill Gates, Ross Perot, and Donald Trump.
Staying broke is easy, and doesn't take any special skills or energy from you. By practicing these 7 Surefire Ways, you can continue being dissatisfied, unfulfilled and broke.
Have a less than prosperous day!
