Looking at Family Money History

After you’ve examined your financial summary, you need to look at your family money history. Many of your anxieties and irrational behaviors around money are inherited from your parents and other family members. To help you come to terms with these influences, I provide a visualization that takes you back to your family home and recreates some of the money issues and feelings that your parents or other family members conveyed to you as you were growing up.

Becoming aware of how your family influenced you will help free you from any guilt you may feel around your own management shortcomings. Though these inherited feelings will not go away, they will lose a lot of their charge, and you will be able to avoid having them influence you in your financial decision-making.
