As I grew older, however, I began to call this preconditioning into question. Especially when it pertained to my business.
In my mastermind group, for example, we never used to share company financial information with each other. Until one day, my colleague pointed out the ridiculousness of such modesty.
Look, we’re all friends. We all trust each other. Let’s open the kimonos, act like adults and start talking about money as a neutral topic, without a sense of guilt or anxiety.
It was liberating. Not only did we create a more intimate bond between the three of us, but we also gained a more holistic understanding of how each of our business functioned. And that allowed us to support and encourage each other in new ways.
Lesson learned, money should be treated as a tool to build, instead of a wall to blast through. If it’s true that money isn’t the most important thing in the world, which it isn’t, perhaps it’s time we surrender our puritanical predispositions and start having an honest conversation about something that’s really just fuel.
That’s all money is. It’s a lubricant for other things. And once we name it, we can start to claim it.
