Which of These Four Stories Do You Tell Yourself About Money?

  1. Which of These Four Stories Do You Tell Yourself About Money? Paul Sullivan wrote an interesting New York Times piece, Stressed by Money?

  2. Money Avoidance: People who try to distance themselves from money, and in doing so, often undermine their financial well-being
  3. Money Worship: People who believe that if they had more money, it would solve all their problems.
