The other day I was coaching a guy by phone and about halfway through the call I asked, “Do you deserve success?”
“No,” he said.
I gave him a second chance by asking the question a different way. Same answer.
Then the man said something he probably thought of as profound: “No one really deserves success. You either want it or you don’t. That’s all.”
“Okay,”I said, “tell me about these people who don’t have clean water in villages in Africa. Do they deserve clean water?”
“What about you?”
“Uh, good question. Let me think about it.”
“Think about it?” I bellowed. “What’s there to think about?”
“You know, I’m really stuck on this one,” he said. “I don’t know why I think this way and maybe it’s part of the reason I’ve felt stuck.”
“It may be more than PART of the reason,” I replied. “Wanting something is important, but believing you are worthy, deserving and entitled to it is a HUGE portion of the successful mind set.”
“Maybe this is part of my Christian upbringing,” he said.
“Nonsense,” I replied. “I’ve heard Buddhists, Jews, Catholics and non-believers spout the same crud.”
“So wanting it isn’t enough?”
“Correct. It’s just like the people who want more money – but believe having it is bad. How can you attract something you are against? How can you want something but not believe you deserve to have it? Doesn’t make any sense to me at all.”
“Okay, so how do I make myself deserving?” he asked.
“Follow everything I teach in 101 Ways to Magnetize Money,” I replied. ”
“Begin studying it right now. And as you do, look around your home. See everything you have before you and declare, “I deserve to have this. I have a right to it. Then, once you get used to doing that – do it with the things you don’t yet have, but want.”
