This is one of the best words in the English language. Unfortunately, there is a culture of poverty-consciousness that shuns this word. This poverty-consciousness culture also keeps pushing an agenda that wealth is impossible. The first thing to understand about this word is that wealth isn’t only the money in your pocket or your bank account. Wealth is an abundance of anything. It could be food, it could be money, it could be friends, it could be children. If you only think of wealth as money, then you have a poverty mindset to begin with.
In order to ease your mind and spirit away from poverty-consciousness, it starts with the types of words you use. What types of words do you use regularly? Are you always reflecting on lack and broke-ness? Do you stress about it? Do you joke with friends about it? Guess what, you are keeping the torch of poverty lit in your life when you use words associated with broke-ness. Let’s work on getting these empty, terrible words out of our vocabulary and building toward a richer vocabulary.
Instead of using the worst words in the English language, why not improve your vocabulary and your lot in life using better words. Last year, we focused on words that would lead to a positive attitude. This year’s goal is to increase your wealth mindset by using better words associated with wealth. With these words, you can become richer, one month at a time.
