We all hold a certain set of beliefs that dictate how we move through life. If you think rollercoasters are scary, you’ll probably avoid them. And although it’s rarely talked about, the same is true of money.

We’ve compiled some of the most common beliefs about money along with ways to combat those thoughts and the money woes that follow.’Money Is the Root of All Evil’People who believe this, even partially, tend to feel guilty for having financial success. If being wealthy is one of your goals, even a secret goal, then it is an exceptional one.

Just remember, money is a neutral instrument. You can use money to do extraordinary things for you, your family and the world.

‘It’s Only Money’This is most commonly used when we don’t have control over our spending. It’s sometimes easier to attach a low value to money than it is to admit we’re not handling it well.

Head over to this budgeting tool. Getting a clear idea of what’s coming in and what’s going out will provide you a stronger relationship with your money, bringing you closer together.’I’m Not Good with Money’This belief is one of those self-fulfilling prophecies. When someone says they’re not good at something, it’s like throwing their hands up and no longer trying to get good.

You CAN be good with money. In fact, you can be great.

It’s always a good idea to enlist the help of an expert whenever you’re trying something new that can be of great consequence in your life.’My Family Isn’t Rich'” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]And that’s okay, but it doesn’t mean you can’t be.
