Weekly Wisdom #361 - What Is Your Relationship With Money?

When it comes to money there are a lot of different ways that it can make you feel. Money can make you happy, money can make you sad, money can make you angry or envious.

And in this week's Weekly Wisdom, I have a challenge for you to find out what YOUR relationship is with Money. That may seem a little confusing, but after watching this week's Weekly Wisdom you will be armed with the challenge of the week, and I think you'll love it!

Watch now!

And also, as I mentioned in this week’s Weekly Wisdom, to get two of my best-selling books for free, go to http://www.deansfreebook.com.

Thanks Dean!

Deborah and I will be attending the presentation with you, Tony Robbins ans several others here in Denver in February. We are excited and hope we get to see you while you are in town. We owe you dinner!!

Thanks for everything,


Money = Human Life

You need money to be born and need money to be buried. Every second of life requires money. The Bible references wealth and money more than any other subject. Health, love, happiness, family, education and every other aspect of human emotion and existence is rooted in money. And the funny thing is that most societies tend to make it shameful to talk or discuss money. As if it was inconsequential to human life....

Just to breathe in today's US one needs on average a minimum of 50K per year. If you don't agree, simply break down your monthly expenses and annualize it.

That comes to $3,000,000 for the average life span after high school -- and this amount is to merely breathe and stay alive. Now, can anyone rationally justify how money does not equal human life?

Perhaps we should replace 'In God We Trust' from our currency to simply 'God'

P.S. - Everything else is immaterial, irrelevant, and unnecessary.


We cant do much with out it and if we are limited with we dont get very far in life.Money isnt bad its how we view it and use it.Lack of money has caused a whole host of problems and I wont list them all either, its so sad.So yes its a very important need, thanks Dean keep your chin-up sinerely, Jim

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches...•Your name of Dean gives you a clever mind, good business judgment, a sense of responsibility, and an appreciation of the finer things of life.

• You are serious-minded and not inclined to make light of things even in little ways, and in your younger years you had more mature interests than others your age.

• Home and family mean a great deal to you and it is natural that you should desire the security of a peaceful, settled home environment where you can enjoy the companionship of family and friends.

• Whatever you set out to accomplish you do your very best to complete in accordance with what you consider to be right.

• In the home you assume your responsibilities capably, having the self-confidence to form your own opinions and make your own decisions.

• Others can rely on you; once you have given your word you will do your utmost to fulfil a responsibility.

• However, there is a tendency to be a little too independent in your thinking and it is difficult for you to accept the help of others when you should.

• Due to your strong sense of responsibility, you could experience worry and mental turmoil through assuming more responsibility than you should.

• Friction could arise through others feeling that you were interfering with their rights and privileges, even though you are only trying to help.

Hey, just had to do that, I just read that this morning and had to post it. Great topic. I will analyze (it) this week. I think about (it) all the time on how much is enough. But I do not like to have a lack of (it). I do not like being a slave to the lender that is for sure weather it be a credit card or the IRS.

U...U...U My name is Ursala, I got money in my pursala, money to save, money to spend and money to lend a friend. Yeah, yeah, yeah, money to lend a friend... I think I would like (that).

I did this before and......

Great part 1 of a lesson we all need to know or learn. I did this at a MMI(T. Harv Eker) seminar a couple years back. Found out some things about myself I was not aware of. I always had a respect of money but some things I thought about it, which I found out through the lesson, were counteracting others which was how and why I was standing still. Needless to say, some corrections were made and things have changed for the better. Smiling I certainly encourage all here and who are listening to you to do the exercise and be prepared for part 2.

Dean, I know I've been a bit M.I.A. from posting of late but just know that I am putting into practice all that I have learned from you over the years and life still gets better because of it. I truly appreciate all that you do, will do and have done for us already. I am still a loyal Graziosiite. Eye-wink Laughing out loud

Have a great week!

Thank you Dean,

great Weekly, as usual! Reminded me of song from ABBA:
"Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man's world
All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It's a rich man's world"

I'll be doing the exercise this week! Will post again in a few days...

Money Matters

Hello Dean,
Good topic, "MONEY".
Sorry to not have been more active this past year but things have gone astray.
In regards to money.
*I have not seen anyone mention this:
Afraid of the intellect in which is required to make money and manage the money that is made.
Help is needed.
I feel that it is fairly easy to make money but difficult to manage the making of it and the management of it after having made it.
This is obviously where accountants come into play, it would be nice to be one.
Two heads are always better than one.
When one is totally alone, it is difficult to handle the making of money and the management of the money made.
How does one find a partner to trust in regards to money?
Please feel free to comment...

Stuck in the Middle

Dean, You always give us something to think about, thankfully.
Not really mad @ $,not envious of others that have "it" because they hopefully have earned it, we need"it" everyday, while working our reg."JOBS" that seem to just get us by,even with both of us "WORKING",its just the "rob Peter to pay Paul" senario, while trying to get the time to do something, not to get us "rich", but to better our lives,now and in the future to be comfortable, and actually happy getting up,and making a difference in our lives,while trying to help out others that are not as fortunate.
Speaking of "Thankful", I would like to wish Everyone in the "D.G." family a wonderful Thanksgiving, and Dean, I am looking forward to "part II"


when it comes to money, I always have tried to run away, why? I seriously don't know.
It's like we have never tried to understand each other or even try to getting to know.
I might have think about money as it doesn't like me or it runs away from me and somethings inside me says it's just not meant to be for you.
I can't stop thinking why, why is it like this? why I always have money but not quite having it. why its just looks far away from me... I feel like I never wanted to know it as it really is.. Am I feel bad about it? guilty? or I just wanted to be good and faithful to not just think about it at all.
I have something inside of me that when I feel somebody or something is not going to like me, I prefer to run away and yet I am running away from money...
it sucks

The video really showed the

The video really showed the relation with the money at good. Thanks for sharing the link of your book. Lovely!

Hi Dean,

Money means different things, at different times in our lives....Smiling

Jack Ma is CEO of Alibaba (Heavy Hitter on Wall Street) started his business in a garage in China, ( he is now the wealthiest man in China) in an interview, he was asked about his wealth, he said:

And I am quoting him " To have a Million Dollars is nice.....to have 10 million Dollars you will need help managing it......and anymore then that causes nothing but headaches "

He states that the happiest time in his life was when he was making $20.00 a month..He is humble man.( no amount of money can buy that)

Something to think about.....Eye-wink...xo


Your so good Dean


I love watching you on your weekly wisdoms.
And I got to thinking when I was watching you that you should make Dean Graziosi Dolls and market them. Because of your positive energy and unbelievable sites and books and everything that you have for learning to earn money in the business of real estate. When I think of my relationship with money the first thought that I thought of in my mind was poor.
I have not earn my first check from all the ways you teach on how to earn money but when I do I will post it on this site. Thank you! Dean for all that you offer to us who will be willing to listen and learn and put into practice. Thank you!!

very interesting

Hi Dean I find this subject and all the comments very interesting and thank you all for sharing your thoughts, very much appreciated them from everyone, sincerely, Jim

Harv Eker

Hi Andy loved your comment on money what did you learn on this through Harv Eker, I got his book but wasnt able to get to his workshop due to lack of money and its still a lack of money too.Sincerely, Jim

Very interesting

Hi Dean,
I haven't had a chance to watch to many weekly wisdoms lately but wow what an eye opener.. I never had really thought about how $$ made me feel but now I can say it makes me sad!! I am like you growing up with nothing and still not really having anything no matter what I have tried, none traditional jobs, trying to do my own business's...I have went to a seminar of yours hoping that it would help me.. people keep telling me I am wasting my time and it wont work, so it would be nice to find a mentor to help me to get to a better place in my life to where I can help others.. so I guess it is all just how you look at it and how it really makes each individual feel.. Thanks for all your great wisdom!!
