In today’s post we will learn how to play the money game. It’s amazing how much time and energy people waste stressing over money, reacting to financial setbacks as if money is life itself. Don’t take the game personally, you will enjoy it a lot more. Of course this is a metaphor for how people relate to their finances. Many people are often stressed and worried because there’s this underlying fear of loss.A significant financial setback is seen as a serious personal blow. Even financial victories can’t be enjoyed much because the next setback could come at any time. Any uncertainties serve to increase the stress and worry, which leads to the desire to clench down really hard and try to control every known factor, to avoid any potential risk. Another possible reaction is to check out from the game entirely and refuse to play (except as absolutely necessary), lamenting the great unfairness of it all.
What’s the point of playing the money game? Is it to amass a fortune? Of course not. You’re going to lose it all when you die anyway. The point is to enjoy the experience, have fun, and grow from it. The money game isn’t your enemy. It’s your teacher. Don’t stress over whether you think you’re winning or losing. The more important question is: Are you growing?
