Being Broke ÔÇô A Sign Of Disorder

The Concise Oxford Dictionary offers as one of the definitions of the word “order” as “a state in which laws and rules regulating something are observed”.

Disorder then, being the reverse means disruption of a peaceful and law abiding behavior. Surmising from the above enlightenments, it’s accurate to conclude that the effect of strict law observation is called order. Poverty and crime are both classified as disorder. In so far as no one has a right to commit crime, no one has a right to be poor!

Life has, however, a firm set of laws through which everything is done. Nothing escapes law on planet earth.
Whichever sort of disorder attracts a verdict. Contrasting other forms of disorder, poverty has excruciating ramifications even above murder. Being executed at the age of 30, I suppose, is far much better than being executed over a period of thirty years. Poverty has a way of, at a snail’s pace, assassinating you over an extended time prior to your embittered, miserable demise. Before he died Jim Rohn said, “To be broke is bad, but to be old and broke is worse”.

Unlike a corrupt government leader, the poor man, everybody rejects and despitefully uses.

Disrupting order necessitates a little effort whereas a reasonable amount is needed to bring about and maintain order. Success in any call of life therefore, is order manifestation.
Success is more difficult to handle than failure. Anybody can afford failure, but only a few will manage success. This, I presume, explains why over 90% of the world income is in the hands of only one percent of the world population as Bob Proctor revealed in The Secret.

Order demands effort. It doesn’t ensue involuntarily. Each time things are let to fall in place by themselves, the consequence is disorder. Just like in a garden, you have to labor to maintain order but no labor is needed to cause disorder. The moment you leave it fallow, things begin to grow which cause shame and wretchedness.
Labouring to bring about order in one’s life manifestly culminates in inevitable success which inescapably embraces cash. This is done by observing the laws that govern the particular thing one is doing.

Show me any prosperous person, and I will show you a keen observer of laws. If you are broke, it simply means you someway disregarded laws someplace. Most people who are broke today unknowingly fell prey to the law that Ralph Waldo Emerson calls the “law of laws”. It is called the law of Cause and Effect. The majority of poverty in this our motherland can be claimed at the hands of this remorseless law.
This law stipulates that everything happens in reaction to something.

Nothing happens by chance. This enlightens that both riches and brokenness are results of some things.
Somebody just now might begin to cast the blame over to parents, the government, former boyfriend or husband, schools or environment. Regrettably, searching for the root cause of your troubles from outside sources will on no account bring about the solutions. Switch on the inside light bulb, then you are on your way to unravel your issues.

“Success is largely a result of habit”, said Jack Astor.

Things that you consistently do or avoid determine the quality of your life. “Just a little sleep and you will find poverty at your door”, says the biblical philosopher.

Robert J. Ringer even takes it farther, “Success is a matter of understanding and religiously practicing specific, simple habits that always leads to success”.

Spending eight hours in bed is for ordinary public. All those who escaped the maze of poverty understood that even an hour less of sleep can make a huge difference in one’s life. If for an entire year you devote yourself to sleep one hour less and dedicate it to your personal development, in a year you will discover yourself to be 365 working hours ahead of your friends. Prompting memory of what Henry W. Longfellow said when he ardently held, “The heights great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night”.

“Keep speaking what you want and it will happen”. This is very true, but incomplete. Merely speaking and verbally cursing poverty does not cause financial sovereignty. It only serves to prepare your mind for action. You have to be practically involved in the process to bring what you want. Hiding behind incantations should not be confused for being positive; it’s in point of fact laziness. On laziness, Jules Renard commented, “Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.”

Work your way out of lack. “I’m a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it”, said Thomas Jefferson. In life there is nothing called “luck or being at the right place at the right time”. It’s by hard work! Put some order in your life and lack will be dealt with almost in a natural way.

George S Clason in his great book called The Richest Man in Babylon was a little hard on the issue of poverty. This is what he had to say,”the hungrier one becomes, the clearer one’s mind works”. I advise do not wait until things become worse in your life. You have no right to continue living a poor life. Become angry about it and manufacture your own success!
