Money and body fat are the same thing.
When bears gear up to hibernate, they store as much energy as they can.
Way back in the days when governments and bankers messed up our financial system, people kind of did the same thing.
The saying of “Go out and make your fortune” was create during that time.
Back then it was actually possible for a normal human to leave home at the age of 18 or so, work their ass for ten or twenty years, and have enough saved to live the rest of their lives in relative comfort.
Structurally speaking, a human saving up money is the same as a bear building up body fat.
Today, both are misunderstood.
Human body fat is a very necessary part of our biology.
Without the ability to turn consumed energy into stored energy, we never would have survived.
And without our ability to turn work into stored money-energy, our societies never would have gotten very large.
Today if we look in the mirror and see some body fat, we get angry at ourselves.
Sure, if you have a couple hundred extra pounds, you might want to live a little healthier.
But the process of turning consumed calories into fat is a life-enhancing process on a personal level.
This might sound a bit silly, but consider the message you are giving to your inner self when you get angry at your hips or your belly.
Even sillier, consider pinching a couple of inches of fat and thanking your body for always looking out for your interests.
Money is the same way.
We get angry at ourselves for NOT having enough money.
Or we get angry at the world, or at others.
Consider that your inner self is like a dumb caveman, only capable of following his or her instincts.
Getting angry at your fat or your lack of money could be similar to getting angry at a dog who hasn’t been trained.
How can you train your inner caveman?
If you know anything about training animals, positive reinforcement works MUCH BETTER than negative reinforcement.
If you thank and genuinely appreciate your body’s ability to turn consumed energy into fat (so you don’t die later on) it might be easier to go the other direction.
To convert some of that body fat back into energy (if you want).
Similarly, consider giving your inner caveman or woman some positive reinforcement when it comes to money.
Physically take out some money, hold it in your hand, and appreciate it.
What does the word “appreciate” mean?
To make larger.
When YOU appreciate money, you’ll be directing your inner self to “appreciate” money as well.
