admin Posted August 14, 2018 Report Share Posted August 14, 2018 One of the most confusing subjects is money. Talk to ten different people, and you’ll get ten different ideas about money. Most people that have “enough” money, would like a little bit more. Many people also have an idea that beyond a certain amount of money, wanting more is somehow wrong. But the idea of money is very subjective. We all have ideas about money crammed into our heads before we even learn to speak. We were surrounded by adults who talk about money. Even though we didn’t know what it is (since we didn’t know how to talk yet) it’s something “bad.” It causes anxiety, fights between the grownups, and at the same time, there is never enough. You probably have plenty of vague early memories of wanting something, asking mom or dad, and being told that there’s not enough money. But even deeper, that answer, “sorry, we don’t have enough money,” wasn’t delivered in an honest way. Most adults, when their children ask for something that they can’t afford, feel upset. So when they say, “Sorry, we don’t have enough money” part of that is delivered as if the child is wrong simply for asking. Consequently, we all grow up feeling GUILTY for even wanting more money. So when we hear others talking about money as if it’s GOOD, part of us feels uncomfortable. Because we have deep memories of anxiety and guilt simply for asking for things that the adults didn’t have money to provide. Add on to the idea that the super rich people want to STAY super rich, and a fantastic way to do that is to MAKE SURE everybody believes money is somehow “wrong,” and you’ve got a perfect recipe. A recipe for some MASSIVELY messed up money beliefs and ideas. Most people couldn’t even describe accurately where money “comes from.” When we are kids, we think it comes from grownups. When we are grownups, most of us think it comes from the government. But in reality, money is an INSTINCT. It’s something that pops up in every society. Even in places where there is no legal money, people will use SOMETHING. Watch little kids trading things like Pokemon cards. This is a PERFECT example of the money instinct. This instinct, however, was calibrated in a much different environment. But like any piece of equipment that is OUT of calibration, all you need to do is re-calibrate it, and it’ll work fine. So if you re-calibrate your money instinct, your money instinct will work fine. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
