Coach Vibra send me this chat.
I found this quote around 20 or 25 years ago when I read the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.

At the time, I was still going through financial difficulties, so this quote hit home hard. My money-healing journey started immediately. I was done playing the victim game. I played “live well” games instead. I learned to stop blaming others for making my life difficult. I started to be more disciplined in my daily financial affairs; improved my relationship with money (my situation); and so on….
It took me years to fully comprehend it. Until today, I still find it quite a challenge to live up to it. I realize that struggle is part of life, and it is up to us on how to perceive and respond to our situations.
This week, I lost a friend to illness…
Early this year, she reached out to me right after my money session. She asked for my help with her financial issues. She shared about her money story, 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙮. One thing that we’re agreed on, our money struggles often reflect our life struggles.

She managed to win more than half the battle….
She followed the 5As of the first step in dealing with money problems.
She was aware of and admitted to having a financial situation. She accepted the situation wholeheartedly and learned to stop blaming…. She asks for help and then acts….
Despite the fact that she might not have enough time to rewrite her money story and turn the situation around, she took action… Most of us chose to sit still, keep complaining, and do nothing.

Iam forever grateful that i got to know the book (The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying), and i I had the chance to work on my money story on my early days.
But, It is never too late to start. Let’s start dealing with our money story … Because we never know how long we are going to live.
