Why it’s not about the money
This might seem like a strange thing to say when talking about finances might seem strange. But it’s true. Your income does not define your wealth.
Having more money brings so much freedom and opportunity but on the other hand it can bring up so much emotion. Shame, fear, guilt, responsibility. Emotions do not fit on a spreadsheet.
We are human and we have an emotional relationship with many things in life. Food, our bodies, sports team, books. How we feel tends to define how we interact with it.
Part of how we feel about money is the sense of security that can come with having it because really the relationship we have with money is a reflection of the relationship we have with ourselves.
We give so much of our power away to the feelings inspired by money and our relationship with it. It’s time to redirect that power, to move from feeling disempowered to empowered … from not good enough to more than good enough… from unworthy to deserving.
One of the most important relationships in our lives is the one that we have with money. How much do we earn? How much do we spend? It affects our lives in so many ways, but sadly, most of us aren’t having this essential conversation with ourselves.
What’s the answer?
Part of the answer is better financial education. But, this may not solve the emotional aspects of wealth.
More financial education certainly leads to being more informed with how to make more money or manage money better. As you all know, I’m a great advocate of financial education.
But, it does not solve the problem of those money gremlins coming up once we have made more money, struggle to keep hold of it or struggle to give to ourselves and to others.
So what’s the answer?
We need to look at money from both sides of the coin. Good financial decisions require more than a spreadsheet. They also require that we understand our money behaviours and our emotional response to money.
The practical and the emotional side of money. Distil the little traumas and the big traumas from our belief systems and change our perception of money to one of empowerment.
About the author
‘It’s not about the money,’ is Catherine’s first book. It’s already become a Number #1 Amazon best seller.
I’ve been following Catherine on social media for a long time now and have been really impressed by her knowledge and ability to explain concepts simply.
I met Catherine through the UK Money Bloggers community – where I’ve met a lot of incredible people. She is passionate about helping people, particularly women, manage their money better and grow wealthier.
She’s an award winning financial coach trainer and a UK Top 32 Female Entrepreneur to Watch – a very impressive CV! On top of this, she has a very successful podcast called In Her Financial Shoes.
Why I love this book
There are so many reasons why I love this book.
Firstly, it’s written specifically for women. This is still relatively rare in the personal finance community, so definitely needs to be celebrated. Although it’s a great read for men and teenagers too – don’t be put off!
Secondly – it has genuinely helped change my outlook on money. This has led to emotional changes – I’m no longer embarrassed or ashamed about wanting to increase my income and build wealth. It’s also led to practical changes. I now take real steps to build the wealth I want.
Finally, there are lots of activities included in the book to help you put the guidance into practice. Rather than just absorbing the information, you action your learnings and start making improvements from the first chapter!
This book may well help you break through any excuses you are using to not make more money.
