Transform your relationship with money

Money is one of the most emotions subjects in the universe. Most people feel more comfortable discussing their sex lives with friends as opposed to details about their finances. Yet the purpose of money is to smooth the process of exchanging goods and services. So why do people have such an emotional relationship with money? What gives money its emotional power? The answer is we do; we provide those pieces of paper or metal meaning.



We can do this literally by saying things like "this paycheck is the same as my phone bill" or "this £5 is my lunch" if we then lose £5 in our minds, we have just lost our lunch. Most of the time the meaning is more metaphoric such as "Money is the root of all evil," but whatever meaning we are attaching to money is either going to attract or push it away.


If you're trying to live a wealthy life when you have a poor relationship with money, it is like driving with one foot on the brakes with the other on the accelerator at the same time. No matter how hard you push, you don't seem to get anywhere. For us to be able to let go of things we have been attributing to money that makes it challenging to have, we need to look closer at where all these beliefs come from.


The value of money, whether it is in pounds, euro, dollar, or yen, is now based on the value we and others place onto it.


What is money then? Essentially it's whatever we want it to be.
