So here, we get straight to the point.
If you’re ready to eliminate fear, stress, struggle, frustration, and guilt from your finances and all the areas they affect, you’re in the right place. Welcome.
I’m so glad you’re here.
Welcome back to another episode of the Your Money Your Life podcast. I’m your host, Aimee Cerka.
Today we’re talking about if money is actually overrated, maybe like wealth, is being wealthy overrated, all of those things? So let’s just start simple. Is money overrated? And it really depends, which, you know, is quite often my answer because there’s so many things that go into these questions. It’s not just cut blank, okay. So a lot of people will say, well is, “relationships are more important than money, like money over relationships, right?”
Time is the one thing that you can never get back, right? And relationships are important, and they need to be prioritized. But you also need to be able to have the freedom to prioritize them.
So when you figure out the money thing, when you get this done and you’re comfortable with your money, it’s not hampering your relationships, but it’s not a priority over your relationships. Because when you truly have this figured out, you don’t think about it.
What I find is, if there is a lack of money, we spend more time stressing over it, and you spend more time thinking over it when you figure this out and you’re comfortable with your finances. You don’t think about it, you don’t have to worry about it. Because it’s not there, it’s not a big deal.
You’re able to be present in your relationships, whether it’s relationships with family, which is going to be the next one that we’re in to really speak on relationships with a significant other, with friends, with your relationship, like your spiritual relationship, who you are as a person.
Money Over Relationships
You know, for me, my relationship with God is very important, and that’s definitely a priority. And we and I spend time on that. And of course, money’s not a priority over that relationship. But there’s like, it’s not like an either-or thing. And that’s really what we’re getting at.
Money Over Family
Many people have said that we give all our money away to have the family and going to have those relationships. But it’s also you don’t have you don’t have to be poor—you don’t have to have that lack—to be able to prioritize your family. And that’s really the point that I want to get across here. This is the part that you’re thinking it’s not like an either or thing.
Money Over Life
Now, a lot of us will lists at our priorities will say like money over life, like living money is important, more important than living life. If you list out your priorities, right now, I’m sure that money is not like in the platform. For most of us, it’s our relationship with our Creator, it’s our spouse, our children, other family extended relationships.
Work really doesn’t make it on there and like until well we’re but if we look at the time that we spend dedicated to each one more it kind of takes over and you might say like that has that’s just the way it has to be in that might be true but we also have to acknowledge, like where we’re actually spending our time that. So if living life is more important than money, and I would say that it is, you don’t have to have a ton of money to create happiness, but your relationship with money needs to be happy.
And this is kind of where I’m getting at. It’s not like an either-or thing. To be able to prioritize your relationships, prioritize your family, prioritize your wife, you need to be able to do those things.
When you have a positive relationship with money, we don’t have to have this over abundance, necessarily of cash, you can, again, not an either-or thing but it’s your relationship with money. Because like we talked about last week, you’re going to your stress is going to take over, you’ll be more miserable if your relationship with money and you’re not comfortable with your money.
Money Over Success
So the question is, is money and success overrated? And I really feel like they’re two separate things; we have to define success, which is really a whole different episode, like talking about what success actually means. So if we take that out and just say, is money overrated? The answer is no.
The amount of money you have, though, doesn’t even matter. And if you’re struggling right now, are you like, guarantee if you were struggling right now, financially, you just barely getting by? You probably want to punch me or roll your eyes at me or something because, you know, I totally get it; I would have done the same thing.
Just as it is, but your relationship with money is everything. And I had a client, we were talking on one of the academy coaching calls, and she was talking about like, how she feels like her successes, her wins that she’s seen so far through the program. And she said that she was more comfortable with her finances. And that, for me, is the key.
Because when you’re comfortable with your finances, like you see the success that you have already where you’re at now, you can be present, you can realize like, there’s not somewhere to get to, like, yes, we have goals. Yes, I have goals, yes, that I’m working towards.
Yes, I’m helping my clients work towards those things and I know that you do too. But there is success right now, like just being able to be present. And seeing the success where you’re at is so important. This is the tumbling part. Then let’s try that again. This is the tumbling-like block right here.
When you figure this out, everything else falls into place. This is why we start with the money, because we get it out of the way.
Is Money Overrated
So, is money overrated? Absolutely not. It’s very important. But it’s not the amount of money you have. It’s the relationship with money that you have just like the other relationships and your family in your life. They’re so important. You want to prioritize those; you want to make them key. But when you start with your relationship with money, get it out of the way, everything else falls into place.
