Money Is A Story....

Seth Godin
I am currently in the midst of reading a gigantic book called "Tools Of Titans" (from Tim Ferriss, the famous author that brought us 4-hour workweek in 2007).  Effectively, it is a compilation of key takeaways from his previous interviews/podcasts with the hundreds of successful heavyweights over the world, including Tony Robbins, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Seth Godin, Jamie Foxx, Peter Thiel and many many more... 

Tim cleverly categorized zillions of gems into three key segments : HEALTHY, WEALTHY and WISE. I am still at page 587 of 1,596 of the ebook and it just happens to be the interview of one of my favorite author : Seth Godin (he maintained a blog with daily nuggets of meaningful post, check it out here). So, the title of this blog post is not from me, it was actually from Seth Godin (under the WEALTHY segment). The complete sentence (extracted from the book, Tools Of Titans) is as follows:

"Money is a story... And it's better to tell a story about money you're happy with" 

I like it because it's kind of abstract (from the first sight) but when you think deeper, it's kind of true too. The way I interpret it is : money can be a friend or foe, depending on how we manage it (or it manages us in some situation), we should always aim to share an happy story about money (whatever it is to you).   

How do you interpret this...?

Cheers!
