This guy made a post about how he was having dinner with his friend who drove a Bugatti.
And while they were at dinner they were eyeing this guy’s watch while he was dining with his wife.
The wife was wearing a 61-carat canary 80 million dollar diamond ring they bought from a museum and they had been married for 30 years.
I read this and I naturally went and googled a 61-carat ring. I mean you probably will too lol.
My friend owned a 6-carat rock the size of my eyeball so I couldn’t imagine what a 61-carat ring would look like.
Oh and the guy they were looking at apparently owned t-shirt factories in Bangladesh. Let’s assume the entire story is true.
What was interesting about it was the comments…..many were very supportive…then the ones who weren’t.
It is always so interesting to see how people react toward another’s wealth. What judgments they make tell me so much about their money mindset.
One commenter said (I am paraphrasing), I would never want to be married to a woman who felt it was okay to wear an 80 million dollar ring. That money could go to charity and change the world.
He assumed we had to throw the whole wife away because she wore a ring with a certain value.
I mean if it was 100k would we still throw her away?
I mean you’re entitled to it.
No one is stopping judgment.
Don’t try to.
But I can guarantee you this man’s thinking is limiting what is truly available for him to receive in this lifetime.
Another guy said (I am paraphrasing again), I bet he pays his employees $5 an hour and they work in sweat factories, why doesn’t he pay his people better with that money? He made up a whole scenario and story in minutes.
He might. I don’t know.
How many times have we done that?
Based upon our judgments.
We ASSUME things because we think our way is the right and only way.
Then this big long story we’ve made up gets attached very quickly to who people are from their success or what they have.
MONEY will bring out everything that is hiding deep in you about what you feel about YOURSELF.
Want to know where your money issues are, check in with your judgments.
What was your reaction when you read someone owned an 80 million dollar ring and was wearing it?
You know that saying when we judge others, we are actually judging ourselves.
Next time you see yourself judging how other people spend their money, invest their money, spend their money, make their money….including yourself.
STOP and ask yourself why am I so invested in how and why people are using their money.
What does this have anything to do with me?
It’s not taking away from you, is it?
I mean it might feel like it if you don’t live in abundance.
I mean they are printing the paper right this second.
It isn’t running out.
Whatever we assign meaning to becomes our reality.
I got EXPANDED with the idea of a 61-carat rock. I mean she can miss arm day at the gym with that rock.
Others let their limited mindset show, they saw what they DIDN’T have, what wasn’t available to them.
When your default is lack, you will ALWAYS judge everything.
Money doesn’t buy happiness.
But, I am here for the human experience and if it involves experiencing whatever I desire, I am going to experience it as bougie and fancy as I want to.
Because I can. How bout you?
