Key idea 1 of 11

Our thought patterns are shaped by what our parents taught us about money.

Our minds are like computers, where the most important programs were installed in childhood: the patterns anchored within us are based on our earliest impressions. The things we heard our parents saying repeatedly about money as children are permanently saved in our minds, forming our ideas that end up determining the way we think about money later in life.

Sayings like “Money is the root of all evil,” “Money doesn’t grow on trees” and “You can’t buy happiness” ingrain themselves in our minds as our money blueprint and influence our opinion on money. Since our parents influence our behavior most when we’re young, there are only two possible ways to deal with their ideas about money and fortune. We can identify with and accept them, or we can rebel and reject them.

Either we think about money and wealth on the same scale as our parents or we want to do things radically differently. However, resistance alone isn’t enough to break the pattern of your financial blueprint.

This is because people who rebel are often driven by the wrong motivation for achieving wealth. They don’t actually want to get rich – they just want to rebel against their penniless parents or feel superior to them. The behavior they learned from their parents is still so dominant that, even if they put in a lot of effort and earn some money, they will probably lose it quickly if they haven’t worked thoroughly on themselves and ruptured the internalized money blueprint.

But those who learn that “anything is possible with money” at a young age will have a much easier time making money because the motivation to be free and independent through wealth can also be satisfied with money.
