24 Jan What I DON’T Mean About Money
When I say “Don’t let money get in the way,”
I don’t mean you should run up your credit card bills!
I Also Don’t Mean
I also don’t mean you should work at a job you hate, prostitute your skills or your self, or cheat, lie, or steal.
Let Me Be Clear
When I say, “money is connected to everything,”
I do not mean you can get everything you want using it.
Our Fears Are Not About Money
What we’re really afraid of is losing control. We need to back up a step and work with the fear of losing control.
It Does Not Buy Anything Important
There is almost always another way of getting anything you want besides buying it. My rule is that if you can buy it, it is not probably not very important, although it may be useful in the moment.
Why Bother to Point These Things Out?
- It is a lot easier to work with what underlies your feelings about money than to try to have more of it without that self-awareness.
- It’s a lot more fun, too.
- Self-awareness work + desire for abundance = having money that makes a positive difference in your life. (And doesn’t enslave you.)
