as well as, your financial new year’s resolutions and hopes for the future.

resolutions

In our financial journies, where we have been and where we are going are both a result of our money scripts, the unconscious beliefs and associations we have regarding money.

These scripts can be cultural. Growing up, did you get the feeling that those with wealth were admired?

Or… maybe, how people around you thought and talked about money framed wealth in a negative way. Wealth for some can be connected to want for others.

You may have grown up with a mix of both positive and negative ideas about money!

As you start the year, try to notice your money scripts without judgement. See them, not as right, wrong, true, false, good or bad. That can be a distraction from what you really want to see.
