The Message of Money

June 4, 2012

I was at an interesting conference this weekend with my friend Perry Marshall about how our inner beliefs effect our outward attitudes and actions concerning money.  The messages we received growing up, both good and bad, impact our view of money.  Money is connected to power and power tends to illuminate what is on the inside of us.  This means our dealings with money can be a window to our souls.  The messages we communicate to our kids about money tell everyone a lot about what is important to us and how we think.  Am I communicating fear and and a sense of “there is never enough”?  Or am I communicating that we should “live for today” and forgot the future?  Or am I communicating that generosity is important and abundance is possible?

Whatever we communicate, rest assured our kids are listening, because we are not really just teaching them about money; we are teaching them about what life is all about.
