If you learn how to invest, you are handed the keys you need to escape the rat race – a race that is choc-full of competitors. They are stuck on the idea that if they only earn a little bit more money, if they only get another couple of raises, they’ll finally be in a secure and abundant financial position.However, by learning to invest, to acquire wealth wisdom, you will discover a much better way to earn the money that will break you out of the rat race, and walk a path to success instead.
Much of how we function when it comes to our finances is directly linked to how we feel about money – to the relationship we have built with it. A lot of people only know about one relationship that they can have towards money: they work and get paid a wage and learn to make ends meet. This is the only way that money enters their lives. They don’t learn how to invest because they don’t understand what investing is. That there can be alternate relationships to the wage-slave one, has not even occurred to them.
Before you decide to move towards a wealth wisdom mindset, it’s a good idea to become clear about what your relationship to money is.
- Sit down and write out a paragraph or two that states how you feel about money, and what you believe about money.
- Write down how you believe people earn money, and write down what you think about people who have a lot of money.
If in doing this you find a lot of ‘negatives’ – about having (or not having) money, and how you and others manage it, then its time to improve your relationship with money and learn some strategies that will change your perspective on wealth creation.
It’s going to be your job to work to reverse these negative feelings and to expand your notions of how money works.
Of course it is a much less challenging route to stay where you are (remember the race?) than to take the often more confronting path that involves wanting to learn how to invest. Deciding which road to take could be the biggest decision of your life.
