When I was a child, a close family member won a significant amount of money from playing the lottery. I’m taking about enough money for this person to quit their job and never work a day in their life.
A few years later, this person was back at a minimum wage job. We never spoke of the lottery winnings again.
Why am I sharing this story? It’s proof that financial freedom isn’t just about having lots of money in the bank. It comes from manifesting what you know to be true about money.
Think about it. If you were a careless person, how does that manifest in your spending habits? If you hate to spend money and have friends that do, what would your social network look like?
Money has the potential to give us everything that we want, but it’s not a mind reader. It can only look out for your best interest if you allow it to.
Take a look at my family member. This person’s dream was to construct a Japanese Zen garden, complete with a koi pond. You’d think with the lottery winnings, that would have at least been built.
