The lies we tell about money
1. This is what I really look like
I use money to not make my hair look curly and wild.
Everyone uses money to change their looks in different ways.
2. My life is valuable because I wear these clothes, drive this car and live in this house
Your self worth comes from inside, not stuff.
3. I love you X much
A lot of people believe that money shows just how much you love someone.
I am not the best gift-giver. I prefer spending time with someone and asking them personal questions.
4. I went to X school so I smart
The school that you attended has nothing to do with your intellect.
5. I can never retire
Most of the millennials I have interacted with believe that they will never have enough money to retire.
If you make a plan for it, retirement is definitely possible.
6. Money is too complicated, I need a professional to manage it
Money really is not very complicated. There is nothing wrong with having help with it, but you need to be the one driving the car.
