The Money Code is an informative and easy to read financial journey of a life with a focus on money and how the money mind in each of us is secretly in control. In reading this book you will come away with an understanding as to the role a person’s mind has on decisions regarding money. As you may have already suspected, a person’s past financial decisions affect who he or she is today regarding finances.
Once the reader connects on a personal level what Mr. Duran is trying to convey to us as to the how and why we make money decisions at any given moment in time, we will come to understand that we can change our money mind.
Before reading The Money Code I had absolutely zero idea how much of our daily stresses in life actually originate from financial decisions. This new insight into my money mind is a most valuable tool if used properly and with purpose. Each individual has his or her own definition of financial success. For one person it may be defined as operating a very large Fortune 500 Company with all the perks and benefits (Extreme #1). Another person’s idea of financial success would be to have enough money to make ends meet each month, for once (Extreme #2). Whereas another person may see both of the above examples of financial success as being too extreme in both directions. They feel maybe they belong somewhere in the middle and that is exactly where most people seem comfortable living.
Consider the following questions:
Does it seem as if there’s never enough money to do everything you want?
Do you struggle with feeling genuine security about your financial life?
Do you feel frustrated talking about money with your loved ones?
You’re not alone. Unfortunately, most of us were never taught how to think and communicate about money. The Money Code is a modern tale of one person’s journey to uncover the five secrets to living his one best financial life. Through his voyage, you’ll learn how to:
- Prevent bad decisions about money
- Identify your Money Mind–Fear, Happiness, or Commitment–and how it affects every financial decision you make
- Use a custom checklist to improve your entire financial life
- Clearly discuss decisions about money with the ones you love
- Finally take complete control of your financial life
The Money Code will teach you to become aware of the need to choose a different set of processes in your money mind to achieve a more desirable outcome. You will learn to adapt these new financial tools in such a way that you will achieve financial success as you apply what you have learned. You will find yourself awaiting future financial decisions as they are presented so you can control and predict the outcome with certainty. When you can identify and control the area of your mind Mr. Duran refers to as the money mind, you will have broken The Money Code.
