“Wow. Di na ma reach.”
Narinig mo na yan? Maybe someone jokingly told you that after he saw your brand new iPhone.
I know that statement is just a joke.
But I believe in the power of words and sub conscious mind.
You see, when someone tells you…”Wow, di ka na ma reach”, you mind may give meaning to it.
In my experience of coaching people, some people felt good after hearing it. We all love to feel that we’re getting ahead in life. You’ve been working so hard, so dapat lang na medyo makaramdam ka ng konting pagasenso.
Unfortunately, in some cases, that statement can also be interpreted into…“Baka lumayo sakin mga friends ko ah.”
Please note that these are all happening in your subconscious mind. You may not be aware of it but believe it or not, many people interpreted it that way.
Sino namang tao ang gustong malayo sa mga close friends nya? Wala.
Many people have great potential to be wealthy, but as soon as they start succeeding and they see their friends or loved ones are being left behind, they feel guilty about it as if kasalanan nila.
This is sabotaging their success.
Let me explain further.
You see, when a person starts to focus on something, he’ll eventually be good at it.
If you decided to grow your income and focus on investing, you’ll start to read investing blogs, attend investing seminars and buy investing related books.
Your mind is really into investing at this stage.
You love to share what you know to your friends but they’re not interested.
Clash of Clans, sure. Investing? No thanks! Personal Finance? Nose bleed.
At this stage, you’ll start to feel being excluded, ostracize by your friends.
A year after your friends, will notice na umaasenso ka na.
And here comes the joke again…“Wow. Di ka na ma reach.” You’ll feel the same feeling of exclusion again and it’s a painful one.
So what do you do? Sabotage your success.
Subconsciously, you’ll limit yourself. In your heads, you don’t want to make too much money at baka malayo ako sa friends ko.
My point is, you have to question what you interpret in your head and know that you can be wealthy and still be friends with them.
