EP 29 My Money Story Series: Part One – My Childhood

Ceciliapodcast

 

 

Coming from a background of generational wealth indeed brought me experiences that helped me better understand myself and my perception of money.

Back when I was a kid, I remember that if I turned the lights on, the lights would work. If I turn the hot tap on, hot water would be there. There was never any awareness or experience of not having money. As a child, I just knew I was provided for. I always felt safe. I always had something to eat.

There are times we’d have people show up and I’d feel isolated as their perceptions were made up of thoughts that we’re fortunate, that we’re above everybody else. However, as I grew to experience various events in relation to money, I came to realize that what others think isn’t really what’s going to drive me towards wealth.

It’s me who needs to take the responsibility of choosing to go after that awareness of my own relationship with money. After all, perception isn’t always reality.

In this episode, I’ll be sharing how my childhood and shame towards money has impacted me, my business, my sense of self, and how in many ways, it’s actually been a disadvantage – and what I have done to overcome that to make my own dreams come true and rewrite my own money story, independent of my family.

Rebecca Davison’s Tips in relation to Having Awareness towards Money

  • It’s important to review your experience with money. Ask yourself:
  • What is my first memory of money? What was it like? How did I feel about it? Where did I have those experiences of shame?
  • It’s about the perception you have towards yourself, not the ones from the others. Are you giving yourself permission to be wealthy in a way that works for you beyond your background? Are you giving yourself permission to be wealthy, free and clear of any money story you might have? Are you giving yourself permission to create it the way you want it to be?
  • As long as you’re not stepping on anyone, don’t let other people’s perceptions stop you from doing what needs to be done for your abundance.
