Anyone who is serious about understanding themselves—I mean REALLY understanding themselves—had better get a handle on their relationship with money. Our attitudes about money are usually formed quite early in our lives, and far too often, we operate on those initial ingrained thoughts and assumptions without ever challenging them or deciding, in a thoughtful way, that we want to embrace them for ourselves.
Dr. Cynthia Briggs has just completed a very good, and very brave, free four-part e-course called “Let's Get Right With Money,” based on the book The Soul of Money by Lynne Twist.I say it's good because the lessons make you think about things you often don't—or won't—think about, but should. It's brave because she is very honest about her own struggles with, and attitudes about, money. She's pointing out the gorilla in the room and making us all admit we see him too.
If you think this might be an area you need to work on to understand yourself and your motives better, you can find the four lessons of the free e-course on Cyndi's blog, The Sophia Project:
