Valentine’s day has just passed, plus we are in the month of Love. And I’ve been thinking how our relationships with money are really all over the place.
But we can describe our relationship with money as if it were a loving relationship between two people.
Money wants to support you, and be there for you, and love you – the exact same way that you want that perfect partner to love you every single day of your life.
Go ahead, say “it’s really not like that. Money runs away from me.” Yes exactly! So you need to look at how YOU treat your money.
Do you spend all of your money like it’s a hot potato?
Do you have any money in savings?
How much debt do you have?
Do you know exactly how much money is in your bank account right now?
If this money was a man, would want to talk to it on a daily basis? Would you want to spend your time with this man?
I know that you relationship with money was cultivated many, many years ago, as you were growing up. It is a culmination of what your parents believe and what they have taught you. The same is true when it comes to actual relationships with other human beings in your life as well.
The good news is that you have control to change these relationships NOW!
BUT you have to be willing to change and actually want this change in your life. Stop resisting the change and allow things to happen the way that you really want to happen, happen in your life.
I want you to start right now and write a love letter to your money. This is one of the best ways to change your relationship with money. I want you to write a new letter every day for 30 days, then come back here and report to me what has changed for you.
You can start this letter out really simple – just have one paragraph, telling money what you want from your relationship, how you want the relationship to change.
As the days pass though, you will develop a better relationship and you will have more that you want to write. You are just going to treat this money as a loving relationship, almost like it’s another person.
So are you ready to change your relationship with money? Are you going to try this love letter?
