I'd like you to imagine for a moment...
Imagine that money were a person.
Let's call her Miss. Money.
What would your relationship with Miss. Money be like?
Would you and Miss. Money be friends or enemies?
Would you be scared of Miss. Money or would you avoid her whenever she came your way?
Would you idolise her or would you mistreat her?
Would you let her influence your decisions or hold you back from doing the things in life that you really want to do?
Interesting concept right?
While Miss. Money may be fictional, the truth is that we are actually in a relationship with money. And if we aren't best friends with money, we need to do something about it!
Money is a very powerful force in our lives. We can either learn to control it, or let it control us.
When we have problems with our real life relationships, typically we might take steps to try to fix it. Surely our relationship with money should be no different.
Like any relationship, your relationship with money can improve with a little effort, love and attention. Ethel Barrymore famously said "the best time to make friends is before you need them".
So perhaps the best time to make friends with money is now, or before you need it!
