Key idea 1 of 7

Many of us have a conflicted relationship with money that keeps us from reaching our potential.

Money is a complicated subject. Some people love and obsess over it while others have come to despise the stuff. And while there are those who desire money, there are also those who feel ashamed over having so much of it.

Our culture has many negative beliefs about money, like it being the reason people turn into greedy and selfish monsters. But this is a myth.

Making money is what allows people to break free from financial constraints and use their time and energy for the things they care about. This is how philanthropists and activists are able to start charities and spread the word about important issues.

Often, our attitude to wealth will fluctuate between good and bad.

If you visit a friend who has an impressive widescreen TV, you might feel the desire to buy a similar TV. But then you might see a person you don’t like bragging about owning the exact same TV. In an instant, you feel disgusted with yourself for ever wanting such a pointless luxury item.

Another misguided belief about money is that if one person gets rich, it means someone else stays poor.

This idea stems from what’s known as a lack mind-set, which leads us to believe that there just aren’t enough dollars or resources to go around.

But think of it this way: If you eat a sandwich, do you think someone in another country is having their sandwich taken away?

No, the real scenario is that you eat your lunch to have the energy to work and create opportunities for others to do their job, thereby making it possible for them to afford their own sandwiches.

Sincero used to be plagued with negative ideas about money, and as a result, she wasted much of her youth with low-paying jobs such as catering, babysitting and knitting. But now she’s here to help you avoid wasting another minute and begin a healthy and lucrative relationship with money.
