Wealth expansion has been quietly happening in the same economy that many are whining about.
The gloom and doom over the demise of the economy is an opinion held only by those who insist on seeing it that way. A little research reveals that in the same economy that many are crying over, many have moved forward to make millions. PROOF that when the glass has 50% content, some will choose to see it as half-full, but there will always be those who insist on calling it half-empty.
In a recent post by Paul Ebeling, based on his research, he made this astounding comment:
“America’s affluent have gained significant ground. [ ] In a 5-year span, the number of people in the $20-to-$100-M band spiked 63.5%; those occupying the $100-to-$1-B strata, grew by 61%.”
Another mention that caught my eye was his mention of how women are contributing to this wealth expansion:
“last year 62% of those in the $25-M-and-above category were dual-career spouses, up from 39% in Y 2012.”
I encourage you to read Paul’s full article for other amazing insights, however, having read it myself, I felt compelled to share this encouraging news with my audience who may never have come across Paul’s public post.
Wealth Expansion. Join the Wave
New millionaires are not inheriting wealth, and women are no longer passive recipients of lux lifestyles by marrying well.
Christian income earners, more of us need to join the millionaire pool. This is my goal, not because I want an expanded lifestyle, but because I want to make more impact on the things that move my heart.
This entire conversation can be summed up by these verses found in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
“[ ] he who plants sparingly also harvests sparingly. Each should give according to what he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Do not miss the Biblical connection made here between work, abundant harvest, and giving.
I enjoy giving and look forward to doing it in a much bigger way.
Yesterday, God gave me a life lesson that I want to share with you that I hope blesses you as much as it encouraged me:
One of the things we can ask God for is an abundant return on the seeds we sow, or in other words, a profitable return on our work and investments. When we ask, expect to receive it.
The Christian income earner who cannot have a hopeful outlook has taken their eyes off of Yeshua (Jesus).
Matthew 14:29-30 ““Come!” answered Jesus. So Peter got out of the boat and started walking on the water to Jesus. 3But when he noticed the strong wind, he was afraid and started to sink down in the water. “Save me, Lord!” he cried.”
Be in action. Work. Invest. Give. However, do so with the mindset that your glass is half-full. A positive outlook is mandatory regardless of your circumstances, or your feeling on the current President running the country.
I am not a millionaire – YET! However, becoming a millionaire starts with the belief that you can be and that you will be, then taking income building activity in that direction.
There are too many ‘broke’ Christians in line for a handOUT instead of being in a position to offer a handUP. This needs to change because prosperity is NOT entitled, but it IS within reach. I feel honored to partner with God in this process to remind Christian income earners that Yeshua (Jesus) did say in John 10:10
“[ ] I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
If you are ready to become a (more) Profitable Christian, on a mission to be a better manager (steward) of what God has put under your control by way of time, talent, treasure, and temple – connect with me for a free consultation session. I guarantee you the gift of feeling heard, and regardless of whether we continue working together or not, you will leave that conversation encouraged, and with resources to consider for your adventure ahead.
