Our beliefs are formed in childhood. Sooner or later we realise that many of them are false (mermaids and unicorns aren’t real ?) but our beliefs about money are often carried around the for the rest of our lives (having lots of money will make me happy, find me love, give me status. Or, perhaps, money is evil).
The truth is money has no inherent value but the stories we tell ourselves about it can affect the quality of our lives.
The sooner we realise these stories may not be serving us well the sooner we can take the steps to change the narrative and the outcome: “If we know how much is enough we can take the appropriate actions to make sure we can live our ideal lifestyle without money worries.”
