LAS VEGAS, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Business keynote speaker James Malinchak warns speakers, coaches, consultants, entrepreneurs and small business owners they might be sabotaging themselves because they have misguided beliefs about money.
"If you look back over your life and messages about money, I am sure you will say you heard your things like, 'Money does not grow on trees.' People must overcome these financial myths that hold them back from achieving the financial success they desire," said James Malinchak who also teaches aspiring speakers how to build a speaking business.
"For example you were likely taught that 'money is bad.' However, money itself is not bad. If you are able to contribute to a foundation or charity or your church, can you honestly say that money is bad?" he said.
"Money is good as it provides care for others in need. If you make money, keep a roof over your family's heads and provide healthy meals for your kids, is the money bad? No. Money is good for your family as it keeps them warm and dry and free from hunger," he said. "Money is only bad when people use the money to do bad things. Money is good because it allows you to give back, help others, and make a difference in the world."
To overcome the "money is bad myth," you have to change your thinking and change your vocabulary.
"You have to believe and verbalize that money is good and that money will be positive in your life and that you can help others," he said.
"Yet another money myth is 'working smart.' Instead, you have to work right. When you work right with the help of a mentor, you can become more efficient and effective to create more wealth," he said.
"Another myth is 'If you work hard, then you will be wealthy.' This is not true. I saw my dad work so hard, putting in long hours in the steel mill day after day. Guess what? The money did not follow. Sure he made a decent living, however, not a lucrative living. He certainly was not paid what he deserved for the amount of time and physical labor he provided. Working hard is not good enough," he said.
"Changing your beliefs about only a few of these money myths can make a difference in your life," he added.
