3 Damaging Beliefs that Will Not Help You Survive

Let’s look at three damaging beliefs that will not help you survive the coming calamities…

1. Stop believing that all you need is an “abundance mindset” to make things better.

It ain’t gonna work.

I’m not a fan of the “Law of Attraction” or abundance thinking. They are the mental equivalents of a get-rick-quick scheme.

Thinking positively won’t make the recession go away or save you from hard times — although thinking positively may certainly help you to better handle any hardships you experience.

2. Don’t become paralyzed by fear.

In a time like this, drowning in fear and doing nothing may be a natural response, but neither are helpful.

If you are a believer, it is helpful to remember that “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear” (1 John 4:18); and “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God” (Romans 8:28).

Do you really believe this?

If so, you can rest easy knowing that God is going to work all of this out for your ultimate good.

3. Resist the temptation of believing the economy is fine and the worst is behind us.

Do you remember the financial collapse that happened in fall of 2008? Almost immediately, the talking heads on the nightly news began proclaiming that the economy would rebound “in early 2009” or, at the very latest, “the second half of 2009.”

We now know that didn’t happen.

But it hasn’t stopped the media from trying to convince us that everything is just fine and the worst is behind us.

The truth is, the only thing that’s propping up the economy is the Federal Reserve’s reckless “quantitative easing” that’s been running at full throttle for the last few years. This has created an illusion of normalcy.

But don’t fall for this illusion. The problems of 2008 have not been fixed. In fact, the same problems are with us today — and they are much bigger than they were in 2008.

If you fall for the illusion that “everything is just fine,” you will be less likely to prepare for what’s ahead. Or worse, you might dismiss the financial warning signs as aberrations and keep going along your merry way, oblivious that destruction is right around the bend.

So, for now, I encourage you to view the current state of the economy as something that cannot last and will eventually get worse — and then prepare accordingly.

Don’t be scared. Be prepared.
