Imagine a 60-year-old stomping their foot on the ground, crossing their arms and shouting ‘But I want to!’
Most of us are able to see that this type of behavior is something we upgrade as we get more mature. We know that what worked when we were a child probably doesn’t work today.
But what about our money conversations?
If truth be told, most of us are having the same conversations about money that we were having when we were very young. And while they may have served us back then to get a larger allowance or money for candy, as adults, with adult obligations, these old conversations don’t serve us well at all.
Yet most of us have never upgraded how we think about, relate to, and talk about money. We are regurgitating the same old conversations about money that we heard when we were children. What are those conversations for you?
‘I could never afford that’
‘I can’t have money and be a good person’
‘Money is the root of all evil’
‘Only the greedy want money’
‘You have to work hard to make money’
Taking the time to actively look at what your old conversations about money are and then upgrading them will not only bring a sense of freedom and power around money but will also open the floodgates for money to flow to you more easily.
