- that money is an object (rather than a social convention) and that as an object it has the ability to constrain our sense of what is possible, and
- that we are primarily individual agents and only secondarily (if at all) members of a larger entity or group, whether defined by our relationships with others, our political views, our religious views, or anything else by which we separate ourselves and thus limit our potential and thinking by nature of our having ascribed to a specific and thus limiting categorization rather than the fullness and potential inherent in each experience.
Actions occur as a direct result of our belief systems. The maxim what we believe we can achieve is all about self-perception in relation to the world around us. When we give money power over our lives, we are adopting the belief that an object we create has the power propel or limit us when in fact this power resides within. This may be true in effect as the presence or absence of money does indeed limit or expand our opportunities, but there are many other truths from which to choose. I myself prefer the ones that finance my dreams and unleash my potential rather than hinder it.
