For many people, money is almost a kind of boogie man with a will and power of its own. Or perhaps a mysterious force that helps some people and ignores others. These beliefs are rooted in fear, and not knowing how to master money and use it as a tool to achieve your goals.
Reset your attitude to money by thinking of it as merely a neutral tool. In our society money is essential for shelter, food, education, and healthcare.
The danger comes when you turn money into a fetish, accumulating it for its own sake. Or when you think you can spend your way to happiness. Using money wisely can be a great enabler. That is why it is important to have a healthy relationship with money. It is even more important to learn to make your money work for you, how to save money, invest money and have a thorough understanding of how credit works.
Money gives you choices – make sure you choose wisely.
