Have you ever considered that your relationship with money has been learned? Quite a bit of that learning occurred by age seven, and then has just been reinforced over and over ever since.
If your experience taught you, for example, that money is easily made and multiplied, then you are likely to be living with ease in your finances today. If your experience taught you that there is never enough money to make ends meet, then you probably struggle financially today to just get by.
Your relationship with money is highly established by age seven.
Today I’d like to explore two blind spots that may be running undistinguished in your own life. Notice how these are playing out for you right now.

MONEY BRINGS WELLBEING
Consider that there has never been a time you weren’t okay. You are already okay. When you stop looking to money to make you okay, you will see that money is simply a vehicle. And vehicles need drivers. You don’t need money, but money needs you! It needs you to direct and guide it and tell it where to go. Every time you chase money, it will flee. Have you noticed? But when you shift out of being a money chaser, you can operate as a money commander instead.
You don’t need money, but money needs you!
Are you willing to get present to your inherited stories of money and notice the impact they are having on your life? How much longer will you let those old stories run you? Do you really want a seven year old kid calling the shots in your life today? You can create a new experience starting now. Get clear on what you really want and who you need to be. Who do you choose to be with money?
