Is Money The Real Problem?

Have you ever wondered why one person can generate money easily
while another person struggles to make ends meet?
You may think it’s because of things like…
the amount of money earned and invested, which are external things.

But, the truth is, our internal environment such as how we perceive
ourselves and how we think and feel determines our financial status.
In other words, its more about our beliefs, thoughts and feelings than
about the financial world.

So, what really is money?

By itself, money has NO power!

But when money is used as an exchange medium, then it acquires POWER!

When money is exchanged between people it represents the energy of relationships.

Money problems then are NEVER about MONEY but about our relationships!!!

And ALL relationships have an emotional base.

Therefore because the act of buying and selling involves people…

there are many emotions associated with money.

Some of those emotions can be frustration, feelings of unworthiness,
inadequacy and fearfulness.

You may feel you don’t deserve money or you’re not good with money…

You may even hate to think about money!

Notice the feelings you have when you make a purchase, get a bill in the mail,
or when you go to write out the check to pay the bill.

Examine your self-talk. Do you say things like?

I’m broke

I wish I had more money

There is never enough money

Why can’t I have what I want

I can never make ends meet

We need to start examining our relationships with people…

What kind of emotions or feelings are coming up?

Quite likely a lot of the feelings will be the same ones associated with money…

like the frustration, unworthiness, inadequacy, fearfulness, etc.

So, it starts on the inside with our internal dialog and beliefs about our self

and developing our awareness about those things.

Relationships with people need to be nurtured and cared for.

Likewise, if you view money as something that you will have a lifelong

relationship with, then you will come to appreciate, care for and respect

its place in your life.

As my mentor, Joe Schroeder says…

“You can’t attract what you don’t respect.”

But, we can’t nurture relationships with others until we learn to nurture the

relationship with ourselves. When we learn to love and respect our self first,

then our relationships with people and money changes!

IF you want the key to unlock your negative self talk…

    “When money is exchanged between people it represents the energy of relationships.”

    Great philosophy!
    So if you aren’t exchanging money with other people then you should look at your relationship with them and reevaluate how they view you.

    Great article!

    Great article Carol.

    You truly brought up some good points about
    relationships and money and how it all intereacts. And the book ” Disciplines of Doership” is a book you will read over and over and over, so not taking you up on that $13 offer, a person would be crazy not too.

    Thanks my friend rock on great post!!
