To start earning more money, you need to improve your relationship with it
Amongst the range of taboo topics avoided by people in everyday conversation is that of money. It is difficult to talk about money, even between friends. "How much do you earn?” is one of those questions that are rarely asked light-heartedly, and that are often interpreted as being rude. People with little money are ashamed of it, those with a lot of money feel uneasy, and those who want more are looked down on by society and labelled as upstarts. Money is perceived as a means to an end that turns people ugly, rendering them slaves to profit, which sometimes sees them even renounce their own ethics. The figure of Disney's Scrooge McDuck or the miser Ebenezer Scrooge (the main character in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol) are the first names that spring to mind when we think of a rich person. This is because, in our society, being rich is a concept often associated with a miser or a cold-hearted person.
To make money, however, we must first do away with the paradigm currently dictating our relationship with money. Money in itself has no intrinsic value - it is neither good nor bad - but it is a means by which to achieve your goals in life. The wealth that we all search for is more of a condition, as opposed to a set sum, that enables us to be satisfied with our lives, rather than complaining of not being able to do something. Put this way, money becomes a synonym for freedom and opportunity.
