Beliefs about Money – The Work Harder Generation

For those of you who remember your parents always focused on money – whether they were products of the Great Depression or children of parent who lived during the Great Depression – you most likely remember family discussions about there never being enough money and how they each (for this was the generation where the mom’s took on a distinct money-making role) had to work harder.  If you remember this, you are most likely a child of the ‘work harder’ generation.

As a child of that generation, you most likely have distinctly different beliefs about money.  Your beliefs may deal with the fact that working harder does not always create more money; that working harder only creates more things to buy; that working harder leaves little time for family and fun…your reationship to money is rather jaded.

Your beliefs around money are uniquely yours – uniquely those of a generation raised by the generation that believed all they had to do was work harder.  Due to this, your beliefs around money tell you how challenging it is to obtain and how quickly it flows away.  This belief was held differently by your parents and by their parents.  Each generation had a different perspective on money.

And the generation you are raising has, to some degree, simply given up on ever being financially fit OR they simply believe they will be taken care of so they do not have to worry.  Look to the number of 20-something young adults who are simply not joining the workforce full-time.  Their mantra, most simplistically stated, is that money is simply too hard to obtain…the ‘price of money’ is simply too high.  This generation is more than willing to allow their parents to pay the price or them.

And so it goes until we are back to the beginning of the money belief cycle.  So, what can we each do to shift our perspectives?
