“My biggest challenge when I start to, as you say, dream big is…entitlement. Somehow, as soon as I dream about what I would really like, my ‘other brain’ says: ‘Oh no, you don’t deserve that.’ It’s really quite frustrating.” – Blondie
Blondie my darling,
When you feel that you do not “deserve” wealth and/ or a worry-free happy and enjoyable life, how do you explain the people who HAVE those things and what makes THEM deserve it and not YOU?
Think about it for a second – It is not academic brain- power. There are PLENTY of super-rich not so smart bunnies running around out there. Think of some sports stars, some musicians, etc. Conversely, there are plenty of POOR and brilliant scientists, mathematicians. It is NOT beauty – again – LOTS of rich ugly people and not so rich pretty ones. It is NOT personality – Plenty of boring or nasty bizillionaires and tons of nice, entertaining poor people. SO WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES THE WEALTHY AND/OR FULFILLED DESERVE IT AND NOT YOU??
This is the key:
Remember the famous quote by Henry Ford?
“Whether you think you can or you can’t, either way, you are right.”
You have to consistently and constantly work on believing that you are deserving. It takes work. Never give up.
That’s it in a nutshell.
