Anyone who is serious about understanding themselves had better get a handle on their relationship with money. This free e-course can show you how…just in time for your holiday spending.
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.
The holiday season can be a time of heightened financial stress, especially if you know you’re spending more than you should, leaving you facing credit card bills in January that evoke a combination of fear and dread. This is not necessary, but to get on top of it, you have to get up close and personal with your own money attitudes!
Dr. Cynthia Briggs has written 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: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Life 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 money and the misguided attitudes she has tried to change.
By calling out three common Money Myths, 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 money motives better, Cyndi has graciously given me permission to republish these four e-course lessonshere at Heartspoken.com:
- Part 1: Let’s Talk About Money Introduction
- Part 2: Myth #1 – There’s not enough
- Part 3: Myth #2 – More is better
- Part 4: Myth #3 – That’s just the way it is
