Your Money Journey Workshop
This 4-hour workshop is aimed at helping your understand your money journey and the relationship you have with money.
Your money journey is the subconscious tale you tell yourself about who you are and it is reflected in what money means to you and the decisions you take around it.
An example of one of the types of the money stories I hear has to do with buying a new car. Buying a new car is not the money story. But the belief behind buying that new car is the story. The reason for buying a new car often has nothing to do with the safety features or track record of the car. It has everything to do with buying a new image. In this story, buying the car is intended to make you look good and feel good. So, the money journey here isn’t about the car. It’s a story about self-validation – and getting validation from people around you.
Another common money journey is the fear of poverty. You don’t have to actually be poor for poverty to be your story. That’s because stories have to do with your perception of your reality and not necessarily reality itself. When the fear of poverty looms in your mind, be very careful. This story can be a destructive and debilitating one to live out. This story is often a story about self-worth, or more accurately, the lack of it.
Do any of these statements ring true for you?
“Things aren’t great, but I manage to get by”, or “I will never be debt-free.” The truth is that stories are powerful: if we believe our own stories, they will come true. If you keep telling yourself that you’re “poor” or that you “don’t have enough” – whether you do it consciously or not – then that is how the story of your life will go. It will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. How you choose to think and feel about money will influence your money destiny.
Workshop participants will be led through the process of unpacking their personal money journeys. We look for themes in our thinking patterns and analyse our pre-disposed thoughts about money.
This process can be one of the most empowering things you do for your life. A clear understanding of your money journey can start a whole new chapter where you are able to change that story, rewrite that chapter and start making money serve you – instead of the other way around.
The workshop will take you through an 8-step process that will help you make significant positive changes to the role of money in your life and how you feel about money.
