How you may be programmed to fail

Audio version available:

We did not have much growing up. My father was the driver of a wealthy man. He would come home everyday venting about how the wealthy were evil, my father took great pleasure in making conspiracy theories about the wealthy. 

Since we did not have much growing up, the only source of entertainment was listening to the crazy theories of my father. As a kid, I did not know much about the wealthy. All I knew was they were evil and corrupt. Fortunately, I managed to get into a good university. 

During my university years, I learned everything my father said about wealth was an excuse for his financial trouble. My father never took accountability, he would blame the government, the wealthy, evil spirits, god, and anything else for his financial trouble.

After university, I decided to start a hedge fund. Unfortunately, a majority of our investments flopped. For some reason we constantly made bad choices, choices that were not in our best interest. 

After reading a few self-help books, I realized my past programming held me back. Since my subconscious mind did not think wealth was good for me, it forced me to make decisions that did not work in my interest. I had been programmed to fail. 

When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions almost always win. Hate towards wealth was deeply rooted in me. After changing my past programming, I started making better choices.
