How To Keep Your Heart Correct Regarding Money

I don’t think I need to remind you that 70% of lottery winners go broke within 7 years. Or that Kayne West tweeted to Mark Zuckerberg last week asking for $1 billion after admitting he is $53 million in personal debt.

Today’s show is about helping entrepreneurs avoid this thinking and maintain a healthy view on money.

Takeaways From This Episode

  • Greed isn’t associated with an income bracket.
  • Where your treasure is, there also will be your heart.
  • We should be careful that we don’t “need” money. Or that our income is our source of security, happiness, and sense of control in our life.
  • Switch your focus from making a million dollars to helping a million people.
  • Stop buying things you can’t afford with money you don’t have to impress people you don’t like.
  • People think to themselves, “I’ll give when I make more.” Wrong.

Do you struggle to maintain a healthy heart toward money? Has this been a struggle for you in the past? What has helped you? Let me know in the comments below.

    Thank you for the encouraging words on wealth and perspective! I imagine most of us struggle with parting with our hard-earned money, especially if debt is already a limiting factor. These were good words to hear!

  2. These tips are great but they are so difficult! My husband and I have been trying to pay off debt for 8 years and my recent blog post recounted our frustrations. I hope we can turn our hearts and situations another direction and soon. Thanks for this post!

  3. This lesson was so encouraging to me, as my heart is to help rather than stack money and the “world” has often told me I was off target regarding this- more money first, then help others, many say. I need to keep learning and pushing forward, however, so I have more to give. Thanks, Dale.
