Suppose you wrote down everything you had heard about money before you were 18 years old; what messages would you remember most vividly?

Even now, I can vividly remember hearing these things from my parents:

  • I’m not made of money.
  • Money doesn’t grow on trees.
  • Save you money for college.
  • Don’t buy it until it goes on sale.
  • Marry a rich man.

I also heard things from my surrounding:

  • Ladies shouldn’t think about money.
  • Men are supposed to support the family.
  • You don’t need to study that; you’re just going to get married.

So, I learned to be super thrifty, married a graduate student who didn’t expect to ever make much money and basically, expected to manage scarcity for the rest of my life.

What do your messages show and what did they lead you to think and do about money? Are those messages helpful to you now or do they get in your way?

Read this excerpt from “Embrace Prosperity: Resolve Blocks to Experiencing Abundance” and learn some interesting messages others heard. And if what you heard no longer serves you, read the entire book and learn to embrace new possibilities in your financial life.

It’s easier than you imagine.
