Wealth is available to every man. It depends on how we explore the resources and harness them. Do you want to be wealthy? Read this article.
Four Erroneous Beliefs You Must Avoid In Order To Be Wealthy
Wealth misconception one
• Better Job Will Make Me Wealthy
Better job may not make you wealthy if you lack discipline. That’s just the truth. I have seen people who clamoured for increment in their salary.
And their company increased their salary. Yet, those workers were still on the same spot. No difference in finances.
More money has a way of generating more spending. Without discipline, increase in income may incur more expenditure.
Once you have a better job; You’ll want to get a better pair of shoes, better dresses, better cars and so on. There is no job on earth that cannot make you wealthy.
You’re to choose the one you have passion for and keep pursuing your dream. Better job may not make you wealthy.
It is discipline coupled with wisdom that guarantee wealth.
No matter the job you have at the moment, try as much as possible that you spend with discretion.
Avoid impulsive spending. It is not better job that creates wealth. Rather, better wisdom creates wealth.

Wealth Misconception Two
• Every Wealthy Man/Woman Will Go To Hell
And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
It was written concerning Abraham that he was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things. (Gen 24:1).
Abraham was rich in all things. Simply put, Abraham was very wealthy.
Yet, he made it to heaven. One of the misconceptions about the subject of wealth in Christendom is that once you’re rich you will go to hell.
Hell is not made for wealthy Christians. If you still hold on to this kind of belief you will never be wealthy. Firstly, get your mind renewed.
The rich can end up in hell if he fails to accept Jesus. Also, the poor can end up in hell if he fails to accept Jesus. Believe me, you can still serve God no matter the level of your wealth.
You Need Money To Serve God
Abraham served God despite the fact that he was rich. In the story sighted in the above scriptural verse.
That rich man ended up in hell because he was not rich towards God. He had Lazarus whom he could help.
Yet he didn’t help him till the man died.
Have you forgotten that it is easier to serve God in wealth than to serve Him in poverty. Be factual, don’t deceive yourself.
Accept Jesus into your life, live a holy life and be rich towards God. To be sincere, if you can do all these.
No matter your level of riches, you will spend your eternity in heaven.
I repeat, God does not send people to hell because they are wealthy. Change this belief and attract wealth.
Wealth Misconception Three
• When I’m Wealthy, I Will Not Have Problems Again
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse.
The woman with the issue of blood was wealthy. She had money to spend on her predicament.
Despite the fact that this woman was wealthy. She still had health challenge.
Sincerely, wealth will not except you from life challenges. It is irrational to think that money will except you from problems.
No matter how wealthy you are, you will still have problems. Problem is part and parcel of man. The rich also cry.
Also, the poor will also have issues to sort out.
This thought can also keep you away from getting wealthy. Avoid it. Do not deceive yourself with this irrational thought.
• When I Travel Out I’ll Be Wealthy
Ruth 1:1-5And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there. And Elimelech Naomi’s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years. And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.
Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.
Elimelech, Naomi and their two sons travelled to Moab for greener pastures. But they lost almost everything.
The two sons died, the man also died and Naomi was left alone.
Although, these people travelled out of their country and went to another country. Yet, they were not wealthy where they went to.
So, until you are divinely guided, you may travel to a land of hardship.
It is not everyone who has travelled out of your country seeking greener pastures that are now wealthy.
Wealth is not stipulated to one country. Just locate your place of purpose.
Once you do that, wealth will be in your place of purpose. If you travel to a land that is not destined for you.
You’ll regret your decision. Wealth will come when you are properly and divinely guided.
If you are going to be wealthy, you need to erase erroneous thought.
In Nigeria, some have been duped by some travel agencies because they were in a hurry to leave for another country.
The money that is enough for some people to start a business they have given it to travel agencies.
You can make it in Nigeria no matter the severity of the condition of many people in Nigeria.
I am not against people who seek greener pastures. And I am not against those who are plying their trade abroad.
But my point is, let God lead you before you can think of travelling out of the country.
