What is Your Relationship With Money?
In this article I will give you direction to find out what your relationship with money is – almost immediately if you want. When I actually examined my own relationship with money and dived deeper into the rabbit hole, I started to see results and a severe improvement with my relationship with money.
If you want to examine your relationship with money – or any part of your life – write a litter to it. Start it off like this:
*insert all the feelings and thoughts you have about money*
When I did this exercise it came out similar to this:
I think about you all the time. You’re always on my mind. You’ve been on my mind so much I’m tired of you – and you’re not even around! I’m mentally exhausted of you, and I wish I didn’t have to think about you all the time. Sigh.
Dude…talk about creepy! I think about you all the time, but I’m mentally exhausted of you? WTF?!?!? Come on Broderick, what the hell man.
After seeing this in front of my face, I realized I had to put myself in a position where I’m not thinking about money nearly as much. I needed some mental space from it. I don’t think I ever would have seen that had I not written the letter.
I had a stressful job only because of the money, so I quit. Again, the main focus was to get myself in a position where I’m not thinking about money. It was great being free, and so I started to work on my creative output and made a course and hella articles. I started independent contract work through Door Dash and moved in with parents to lower my expenses. Gifts and opportunities just started coming, and I had the space to wait for them to come and to wait for the right places. I realized that keeping money around was more important than how much I made. Today the letter to money would be very different. It would go something like this.
Hey. HEY. 2020 was pretty badass right? We gotta do that shit again!
Listen, I know what you’re thinking – “Broderick is a genius”. This letter-to-money thing wasn’t my idea though. It actually came from a book called You are a Badass at Making Money. Pretty badass book yo.
