Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

There is one emotion, which is the cause of poverty in the lives of so many. That emotion is envy. Envy is a negative emotion. When we allow ourselves to feel envy it sends a signal to the subconscious that we are lacking in wealth. The subconscious then goes to work to fulfill your emotional desire to be lacking in wealth. The subconscious is just a machine. When you allow yourself to be envious you are programming your subconscious  with instructions that the subconscious then interprets to mean lack of wealth. When you envy you are telling your subconscious  “make me poor”.
