"There's so many people out there that have money mindset problems because they strongly believe that what they should be doing is giving away what they have for the sake of other people," explains co-host Paige Easter. Paige returns for part two of the Money Mindset series. Today, she and Ben discuss changing your relationship with money to provide yourself with true financial freedom.
While analyzing the classic "Robin Hood" story, Paige and Ben find that it overemphasizes "need" as a higher value than creating. So when it comes to having the right money mindset, we can't forget that money is value. In the sales process, we're exchanging value that benefits both parties. Although there are bad-faith individuals in the sales industry who take advantage of consumers, it's crucial not to dismiss the salespeople providing the services you need. Whether you want to use your money for investing in causes you care about or essential resources, money can be used to align with your ethics and impact the world at large. And by taking care of ourselves, we can create value to help the world.
Having a financial mindset shift can lead to great benefits. Learn more about value creation, the mistrust around sales tactics, and how investing can have positive outcomes.
- "The only way that we can give to the needy is if we have first figured out a way to survive." (7:09-7:14 | Ben)
- "There's so many people out there that have money mindset problems because they strongly believe that what they should be doing is giving away what they have for the sake of other people." (10:42-10:52 | Paige)
- "There's this really big incentive to sell in a way that is emphasizing the generation of income for a person, and not the generation of positive relationships." (14:58-15:08 | Paige)
- "By keeping yourself from providing a service and having the experience of fulfillment that you want in your reality, you are also keeping other people from getting the beautiful benefit of the work that you do in the world." (24:32-24:44 | Paige)
- "As we create abundance in the things that we really care about, we get more energy, more time, and more value to create those things in the world." (28:28-28:37 | Ben)
- "Asking people to invest in the service or product that you provide is actually in service to them. Because when you give it away for free, they don't value it as much. And then they might not actually extract the benefit of it." (28:57-29:15 | Paige)
