I have never seen a work or money problem that didn’t turn out to be a thinking problem. I used to believe that I needed money to be happy. Even when I had a lot, I was often sick with the fear that something terrible would happen and I would lose it. I realize now that no amount of money is worth that kind of stress. If you live with the thought “I need my money to be safe and secured,” you’re living in a hopeless state of mind. Some people believe that fear and stress are what motivates them to make money. But can you be absolutely certain that without fear or stress as motivator, you wouldn’t have made the same money, or even more? Who would you be if you never believed that you needed fear and stress for motivation?
