The 5 Money Belief Questions
Q1. Write down some of your perception of your mother’s most negative thoughts or beliefs about money?
A1. My answer: My Mum most negative beliefs about money: My mum was a housewife all her life while my Dad was a traveling salesman. She often sweetly ‘complain’ that she worked only for our Chen family. She would sacrifice her own personal spending for her children, clothing, food, etc.
My Mum had fantasized how much business she could had made had she operated a weekend food stall in Perak Turf Club like how her brother’s ex-wife operated a very lucrative, the famous Perak Turf Club Assam Laksa. My Mum and GrandMa sold Nyonya Kueh (cakes) during the Japanese occupation of Malaya in the World War 2.
My Mum was a ‘MasterChef’ with her many famous Nyonya Recipes such as Chicken Curry (sold out during Building Trust Annual Fun Fair at St. Michael’s Institute, Ipoh), Penang Birthday Lam Mee, Penang Fish Otak-Otak, Perut Ikan (fish stomach with leaves), Kapitan curry Chicken, Inchi Kabin (Nyonya deep-fried chicken), Hokkien Prawn Noodles, and Penang Lobak. Ok, I digress when I come to foodie.
Q2. Write down some of your perception of your father’s most negative thoughts or beliefs about money?
A2. My answer: My Dad’s most negative beliefs about money: Don’t start any business unless you have a lot of money which my Dad was not rich.
I became an entrepreneur at the age of 31 in Hong Kong. I had to rise above and beyond his father’s shadow who advised me from young not to be like him as he lost his small investments of a few thousand ringgits in two business startups.
My father failed twice as an investor in two side businesses. One business was a tiny tin mine operations in Sungei Siput with his cousin. The second is a pawn shop in Tapah with Chee Choy, a close MTC Distributor which Robert’s Grandma also invested about one thousand ringgit. It only lasted a year.
Q3. Write down the most negative thinking or beliefs at school (teachers), college, church (temple, mosque, cult, etc.), holy books, BFF, Godparents, Ex-boss about money?
A3. My answer: The love of money is the root of all evil (from my Pentecostal Christian – Assembly Of God beliefs). You must pay for your Karmic Debts when you have worldly desires and cravings (from my Buddhist-Taoism beliefs). Money is filthy, dirty. You cannot make money from your talents and gifts given by god (from my New Age beliefs), you must not have any name or fame, the world will end soon, renounce all worldly ambitions, you can be rich only in Golden Age (Sat Yuga) or Heaven in India (from myBrahma Kumaris cult beliefs).
NOTE: Your mother and father, school teachers, religion, or even your ex-boss have a tremendous impact on our belief systems about money.
Q4. Write down some of your most negative thoughts or beliefs about money?
A4. My answer: My most negative beliefs about money are I’m old, I have nothing to show. I need to cut costs. No fresh income makes me most depressed and paralyzed.
Q5. Now transform your most negative money beliefs into your new most powerful money beliefs?
A5. My answer: My opposite transformed beliefs are I’m abundant, very wise, I’m The Whisperer, I have numerous connections, mastery, I’m free, I attract money opportunities, I’m powerful beyond imagination, I’m blessed I have very good health, my fans and people are attracted and touched by my life experience, my taking charge of my Bipolar Disorder, I inspire many invisible others. I’m worthy of my blessings.
Take deep breaths as you declare these new Money Affirmations daily.
