Our money personality is a blueprint for the role of money and success in our lives. It characterizes how we view money, how we go about acquiring it, holding on to it and disposing of it, as well as the impact that it has on the quality of our personal relationships.
There are different money personalities. Which one is yours?
Do your parents’ money attitudes interfere with your success?
Our relationship with money starts in our childhood. Our parents and others cause us to form unconscious beliefs, “money narratives”, as we grow up.
These stay in our unconscious and drive our success later.
Often, they limit us from achieving greater success, happiness, and self-confidence. Some are common and easy to identify, like: ‘self-worth equals net worth’ – which the unconscious translate to ‘I am unworthy unless I am financially successful’; Or ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’, is translated at the unconscious level to ‘you have to work hard for your money so do not spend!’, etc. Other narratives are personal and unique to you and your family.
