Most people are not aware that they have been programmed their entire life to interact with money in a very particular way. Being programmed in this thinking pattern made your life experience stunted growth and everything seems to be hard and you believe you need to work hard for your money and you don’t know you need to make your money work for you by saving and investing them.
