Teen Chat 5 Ways To Make Money Work For You



Hi Teens:

How would you like to​ remove the​ barriers that could be holding you back from getting and staying rich for the​ rest of​ your life?

First,​ you should change your relationship to​ money from the​ negative to​ the​ positive before you can turn your cash flow to​ where you want it​ to​ be.

Have you ever heard of​ the​ money tree? It’s a​ metaphor for securing financial success. if​ you'd like to​ become wealthy,​ you need to​ make sure that your money tree can grow big. to​ do that,​ it​ needs strong roots and a​ fertile ground to​ grow in.

It's really what's under the​ ground that creates what's above the​ ground. It's the​ invisible that creates the​ visible. So you will have to​ "grow better roots",​ meaning
you have to​ change the​ beliefs you have about money. if​ they are rooted in​ negativity then it​ acts like a​ poison and your money tree won't bear any fruit (money).

On the​ other hand,​ a​ money mindset rooted in​ positivity creates a​ healthy,​ strong money tree that will bear lots of​ fruit!

Hey,​ you are probably thinking that you already feel positive about money. Who doesn't want more money?

The truth is​ that we​ all have some unhealthy issues concerning money - we​ just aren't always aware of​ those issues!

1. Change Your ‘Money Settings’
You were taught how to​ think about and handle money whether or​ not you realize it. at​ the​ same time,​ you developed specific attitudes towards money. When you were younger,​ you had many sources of​ influences about money; like parents,​ siblings,​ friends,​ teachers,​ religious leaders,​ media and the​ culture we​ all live in​ as​ well.
And this conditioning about money stays with you for the​ rest of​ your life unless you do something about it​ right now!

Once you are aware of​ your money mindset you can make the​ choice to​ change it​ around to​ the​ positive and get you going
towards the​ riches you deserve.

It's important for you to​ take a​ few minutes to​ go over these "Money Beliefs". Did you ever hear phrases like this?

• Money is​ the​ root of​ all evil
• Rich people are greedy
• You can't be rich and spiritual
• Money doesn't buy happiness
• And the​ famous…”We can't afford it”
• Money corrupts
• Money doesn't matter
• There is​ not enough to​ go around
• You don't deserve to​ have that
• Money changes people
• Having lots of​ money is​ a​ hassle
• To be rich,​ you have to​ use people
and take advantage of​ them
• I’m not smart or​ educated enough
• If you are not born rich,​ chances are
you will never be rich

and also,​ if​ you were rich,​ then.....

• I could lose it​ and be a​ failure
• I would never know if​ people like me for myself or​ for my money
• Everyone is​ going to​ want a​ handout

Secondly what are your parents/guardians like in​ the​ arena of​ money? Are they managing their money well? Are they spenders or​ savers? Does money come easily in​ your family or​ is​ it​ a​ struggle? is​ money a​ source of​ joy or​ the​ cause of​ bitter arguments? Can you think of​ a​ specific incident in​ your family that had to​ do with money?

With all these attitudes and influences surrounding you all your life,​ it​ is​ no surprise then that you unconsciously will shy away from having and keeping lots of​ money,​ is​ it?

Wealthy people do not think about money in​ these negative terms. They know that by having lots of​ money they are able to
give back to​ the​ world in​ many ways. the​ best way to​ help poor people is​ to​ not be one of​ them

2. Take Control
You need to​ know that now YOU are at​ the​ steering wheel of​ your life. You create every moment in​ your life,​ especially your financial life. if​ you don't believe this,​ then you may believe that you have little or​ no control over your life and that financial success has nothing to​ do with you. This is​ very negative; instead of​ taking responsibility for what's going on​ in​ your life,​ you are choosing to​ play the​ role of​ the​ victim. of​ course,​ any victim's thought process includes thinking "poor me". the​ problem is,​ thinking like that gets you nowhere,​ and before you know it​ that’s exactly what you’ll be – a​ poor you!

3. Stop the​ Blame
You can blame the​ economy,​ the​ type of​ business,​ the​ government etc. You can use excuses and justify yourself for not doing well financially,​ for example,​ "I don't have the​ right education" or​ "I don't live in​ the​ right part of​ the​ country",​ "I am not smart enough" or​ "I don't know the​ right people” and so on. However,​ these things aren’t true. You can succeed anywhere,​ and the​ first step in​ that success is​ getting a​ better outlook on​ your situation and environment.

4. Banish Pessimism
Complaining a​ lot doesn't help your finances either. While you complain you are focusing on​ the​ negative parts of​ yourself that you may not like. This reinforces bad thoughts you may be having about yourself,​ and it​ actually causes you to​ attract more negativity. So do yourself a​ huge favor and stop complaining or​ blaming or​ justifying. You are only putting yourself in​ the​ role of​ a​ victim and there is​ no such thing as​ a​ rich victim!

5. Count your Blessings
It's also important for you to​ see the​ blessings around you right now,​ however small they may seem. Each of​ us living in​ North America is​ actually rich already compared to​ other parts of​ the​ world. we​ have so much available to​ us,​ like roads,​ towns/cities and stores,​ public places like libraries,​ swimming pools,​ parks,​ arenas etc.
See yourself having abundance right now and it's from that standpoint that you can go towards receiving an​ abundance of​ money as​ well.

If only I had changed my "money settings" as​ a​ teenager! I would have been financially free a​ lot sooner. I used to​ think that becoming wealthy was only for other people. the​ truth is​ that you can become rich and you deserve to!

I highly recommend the​ book Rich Dad,​ Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki,​ (ISBN: 0446693219) for you to​ begin understanding more about becoming financially free,​ using the​ money concepts rich people use to​ help you put money in​ your pocket and not out of​ it.

It should be available at​ most libraries.
