Got some great feedback from a podcast I did last week about your relationship with money. So let’s explore that some more…
If we find the world’s smartest physicist and asked her the nature of all things, she would say energy or energy vibrations. That would include money as well. So if money is energy, we know money can be attracted or repelled.
Now think back to when you first developed any emotion or relationship to money. The odds are very high that you did this through your parents – how they felt and talked about money. So try and remember the things they said to you as a child. Were they things like:
“We may not be rich. But at least we’re honest.”
“Do you think money grows on trees?”
“We don’t have money for that.”
Next, reflect on how they felt about rich people. Most families have one “rich uncle” or other wealthy person in it. How are they viewed and spoken about by the rest of the family? Did your parents talk about wealthy people with jealousy or in a disdainful way?
Here’s another interesting thought. Even kids raised in wealthy families can feel guilty about that, because of the anti-rich programming in popular culture.
Here are some vital questions to ponder…
How has the way you first felt about money as a child influenced the way you live your life today?
Did it effect what college you went to, the jobs you went after, the person you married, and other major life decisions?
Please share your thoughts below, and we’ll continue this thread tomorrow.
