Money : When you think about money, do you feel financially secure or,
are you worried about having enough for now and for your future?
With Tax returns due this week, The WAVE.co.NZ chose our relationship with
money as our focus area for July.
What comes for you when you think about MONEY?
Not how MUCH you have – but how you FEEL about it.
Is it a mystery that needs attention – or is it already your treasure?
4 Facts about MONEY
- $£ Dollars/Pounds can be the No 1 rock that causes stress & anxiety, fear and limitations.
- Finances/Cash/Stash/Doe is the No 1 topic that couples argue about

‘Wealth is not about having alot of money,
it is about having a lot of options.’
– Chris Rock (Comedian)
Music & ‘It’s all about MONEY’
To change it up, I’m linking our Money topic to Music. As Music is in my DNA, it is often a catalyst for my own reflections.
Do you recall this catchy line from Jessie J’s 2011 hit single – Price Tag? “It’s not about the money – cha-chang-ch-chang – ba-bling ba-bling.”
Many fabulous anthems have been written about money and the human relationship to it – and yes! There are elements of mystery around money.
In 2017 I got curious about my mystery & created a Spotify playlist of all my fave Money tracks.
WHY give the ‘cash/stash/coin/bacon’ all this attention?
Because your relationship with money can play havoc with your progress and hold you back from creating what you want.
When you give this air time, you will discover that you are far from alone & you are human.
In reality, you may even find that you are in fabulous company.
Why not catch up on this with your ‘5’ that create your inspiration, stretch and motivation for each other?
It can be fun to share, knowing there will be a collective of OVER Spenders, Hoarders, Fear-fueled, procrastinating leaders of life who fall into a number of camps:
- don’t think they will ever have enough,
- did not think they deserved money,
- feared having money or
- did not EVER want to talk about money.
This little gem can be at the root of your belief system that suffocates your growth & advancement.
Are those £$£$’s your Friend or are they your Mystery?
Do you talk with ease or are you already squirming in your gut with your palms sweating?
Are you already telling yourself “I hate talking about money?”

Where is your $$$££ MINDSET – Is it a Mystery or have you found Treasure?
We all have an element of mystery around money.
Your Money Story will solve that mystery, so that you can find your treasure.
Money is actually neutral. It’s us humans that add the meaning to it.
N.B. SIDE NOTE!
In my formative years, I was blessed & experienced treasure & abundance. And then – the polar opposite.
In my mid-teens, everything shifted to mystery & scarcity.
As one of 11 children, I don’t remember clarity on simple money lessons.
When my family experienced struggle & subsequent trauma with the loss of our family home – my safe house (parents experienced business bankruptcy), I was catapulted into adult-hood responsibility before I was ready & my money story followed – ‘there would never be enough’ ..(there followed my driving and subsequent burnout!)
The number of 0000’s on your BANK statement is factual.
Yet …they are NOT the whole picture.
If anyone had tried to tell me that in my early 20’s (whilst studying, working at my Uni placement whilst juggling café / bar jobs to pay rent and find a way to cover the fees & bills), I would have (& did!) dealt the ‘death stare’, raised my eyes to the sky and walked in the other direction.
My No. 1 priority was to survive, earn and secure a safe roof over my head, stay out of debt, avoid credit charges and find a way of saving enough to buy my own safe house that no one could ever take away from me & I made that happen amidst ongoing learning & plenty of errors and reframes.
At that time, my focus was only to survive Vs. doing any work on my brain on how I related to ££$$’s.
It took me the next 2 decades to unravel my relationship and accept money as treasure that creates freedom.
I like most of us, will continue to work on any historical money-weird!
