Money is one of the most common sources of stress in our lives. It seems like we are constantly told that we need more of it and that if we don’t have a lot of money then we are failures. This isn’t true! You can be happy and content with whatever amount of money you have.
What is harmony with money?
Harmony with Money can be defined as finding contentment and balance in your relationship with it, rather than letting money control you. I know this sounds easier said than done but it’s so important to try and achieve. Why? Because when we understand our psychology and attitude towards money, we can begin to understand our fears and biases. From there, we can develop an overall approach to creating harmony in our lives.
Why does it matter?
The hard truth is, even though how much you try, you cannot escape money or its reach. It is a necessity to survive and thrive in this world. The best way to face it, learn about it and understand the ins and outs is to take control of it.
Many people go about their whole lives dealing with money reactively and unconsciously. We were rarely taught about the importance of money properly by our parents, or by our teachers.
Cultivating a harmonious relationship with money matters because when we have this understanding of our psychology and attitude towards money- including fears and biases – We can take a more holistic approach to create Harmony within all parts of our lives.
