The Money Taboo
In our culture, there are a lot of unspoken rules or beliefs around money.
We may or may not have picked some of these up.
Money is a taboo topic.
We shouldn’t talk about it, enjoy it or want more of it.
We should be thankful and content with what we have.
We shouldn’t love it
It shouldn’t be important.
If it is, then we are greedy, bad people.
Let’s take some time to question these thoughts because they just might be holding us back from living our best life.
First of all, money is a taboo topic.
The truth is, money is neutral and doesn’t mean anything until we have a thought about it and make it mean something.
You get to decide.
I say, let’s talk about it. Let’s stretch our minds and have fun talking about it.
If we aren’t so afraid of it, we might just start creating more of it.
I’ve decided after a lifetime of money taboos that I do love money.
I love a lot of things, and money is one of them.
Because money solves a lot of problems.
Poor people need money. The more we have, the more we can help.
It’s the way the economy works.
The more we have individually, the more we put back into the economy, the more it helps others.
A rising tide lifts all ships.
Money can buy time, freedom, opportunity, experiences and make life easier.
Sadly, some of us have been taught that money has the power to make us greedy, bad people.
But what if money just enhances who we already are.
If you’re a bad person, you will probably do more bad things with more money.
If you worry about money, you will create more worry with more money.
And if you are a kind, helpful, generous person, you will do more kind, helpful, generous things.
Does it really make sense that if you are a good person, money will suddenly turn you bad?
Let’s learn to question the thoughts that we accepted as children.
The thoughts that keep getting passed down from generation to generation.
The thoughts that are holding us back from doing the good that we want to do and living the lives we want to live.
Remember, our thoughts create our results.
