We're not really encouraged to talk a lot about money other than looking at money as a problem or something that we have to fix. Very often when we do have conversations about money and finances it's really about, how do we spend less, how do we budget better, what money do we have for this?
Let’s talk about money for a second.
But before we do that, when you read that sentence just now, what did that bring up for you?
Did you get excited?
Feel like you were wrong in some way?
Our reaction to the mention of money is an indicator to our points of view about money.
What is your worst problem with money? It's different for everyone but often what it often boils down to is not having enough, or the amount you would like for the lifestyle you want.
Money is a topic that has fascinated me since I was a child. There I've said it. It's not the most honourable of things to admit on an online blog, surely being fascinated with charitable things would be far better but the truth is that since I can remember I always wondered why it was that some people had more money than others. And perhaps more specifically, why a lot of people had more than the people around me.
