Money & life: The power of positivity

Written and accurate as at: 15 November 2021

When it comes to having a healthy relationship with money, and working towards the achievement of money goals, the way you think about money, and the type of support that you have around you, can play a key part.

In this video, National Geographic conducts an insightful experiment on the powerful impact that positive and negative reinforcement (both internally and externally) can have on us when we are confronted with a task.

So, as you make your way through your personal finance journey—improving upon and applying your money awareness, knowledge, skill, attitudes and behaviours—harness the power of positivity.

To help improve your relationship with money, and to reach your money-related goals, remember you are your own positive support. Be kind, patient and understanding with yourself, and seek support from a team of like-minded individuals to stand by you along the way.
