“Prayer is Only the First Step…”

Wealth Building Tip of the Day:

The other day I snapped a picture of this sign taped to a streetlight in front of Penn Station in NYC. At first, I chuckled when I read it.

But then I paused. Because it dawned on me: while this is a loving thought—and wonderful sentiment—for far too many Black women and Black people, this is their ONLY financial plan.

Prayer, or seeking help from your Higher Power or the Universe, etc. is a SOLID first step—and a powerful beginning. But it is not the only step you must take to get out of debt and create wealth. And it NEVER will be.

Creating financial freedom requires taking consistent, effective action over and over, AFTER you pray.

If you’re stuck at prayer when it comes to your money, NOW is the time to commit to taking action. Taking action on that one thing you are clear about.  Even if you don’t have all the answers, there is ALWAYS that one thing that you know to do. You just haven’t done it yet.

This is what is necessary if you truly want to build abundant wealth and enjoy financial freedom. And it works.
