ON THE BENJAMINS #opesays

It has several names, money, cash, muller, ego, owo, kudi; but Benjamin is my favourite. Money  is a topic we can’t avoid as long as we live. It rules our world. Many steal, kill, fight, yearn and cry for it. It is what we need to survive on this side of the divide. Unfortunately, the accumulation of  it is still a problem for many.  Most of us are familiar with the empty purse syndrome. How to cure it is what we’ll be talking about in this piece.

Money really is the physical representation of the intrinsic value that you carry. Your value is simply what you have that can fill a human need or solve a problem. This is where the Law of Obligation comes in. It simply states that people are under compulsion to pay you money when you solve a problem or fill a need. They have no choice. Your value lies in your ability to solve problems and deliver results. This takes us to the second law, the Law of Proportion. It states that the amount of money you make is directly proportional to the amount of people you create value for. So your work here is to find as many people as possible to distribute your value to; because the more people you solve problems for, the more money you make.

Most of us attack the effect and not the cause. Money is simply an effect; an external manifestation of the value you carry on the inside. Your value might be some skill or talent you possess or some knowledge you have. The rarer it is, the more you are paid. Always remember that the marketplace will always deliver to you an equivalent amount of money to the value you possess and no more. Any fool can come into money, but only a man that carries value ensures a continual inflow of money in his life. Money will always locate the man who has something to offer.

Anytime you are broke, something is blocking the flow. The most effective remedy is to give. Give to God, give to a cause you believe in or give to someone. What does this do? It sends a message out that you have more than enough and that’s exactly what will manifest in your life. Another factor that blocks the flow of money is fear. The fear of lack is something that plagues most of us. We continually worry that what we have won’t be enough. Whatever you fear, you unconsciously attract to you. When you fear the lack of money, it begins to manifest exactly that way in your life.

Whatever you fear, you unconsciously attract to you. When you fear the lack of money, it begins to manifest exactly that way in your life.

If you come into money, and you are not ready for it on the inside, chances are that you’ll lose it. Brings to mind my 21st birthday. I asked my dad to give me the equivalent amount of money, instead of throwing a party. I had never seen that amount of money in my life. It scared and excited me ,at the same time. Then came the almighty question, what was I going to do with it? Needless to say, I quickly went through the money. I actually didn’t spend it on anything frivolous, but the fact still remains that I spent it quickly. I simply wasn’t ready for it on the inside.This is what happens to anyone who receives money when they aren’t ready for it or can’t handle it.

Nature abhors wastage.It gives you no more than you can handle. After all , the balance of the universe has be kept.

You keep asking for a billion or million, but have you really thought about how you’ll handle it when it comes? Nature abhors wastage.It gives you no more than you can handle. After all, the balance of the universe has be kept. How can it be kept when wastage continues ? Nature also abhors vacuum. Money will always rush in to fill the man who has value. Money has never been the root cause,it is only an effect of what goes on inside you. Now that you know this,what do you have to offer that people will be willing to pay for? It is really simple. Create value. Hone it to perfection and watch in fascination as people line up to give you money.

Cheers to more Benjamins!

  21. So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just cant resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the waydon’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”
