When you were a child, were you told negative beliefs about money? How did you overcome that belief system?

I find this an interesting question. I think people have beliefs around money and that belief system can dictate your financial situation. If you were told that having money makes you spoiled then perhaps you put a mental / emotional block on making money as an adult ...if you were told money doesn't grow on trees then perhaps you have anxiety around money and obsess about financial security.

I am looking for answers stating what your beliefs are around money...how that ties into your belief in yourSELF and what you did to overcome any negative or limiting views around money, financial success/loss/security.

Thank you for your honesty. All your answers are appreciated with the greatest of respect.

      Feb 27 2012: Thank you for your reply...money is not life...I have friends who have lost loved ones recently and all they would like in life is one more conversation, hug or laugh from those they love...so, yes, this is very true...money is essential to life...yes...why do you think it comes easily to some and not to others?
