What money resentments do you have? Danielle LaPorte

What money resentments do you have…that you could let go of?
I found this question on  Danielle LaPorte
First I must say I don't resent much of anything, since I find it kind of a harsh word, but after really thinking about this question, I came up with a couple different answers that I feel are appropriate and that I still need to work on.  All my life I have said I am not a materialistic person, but with more thought about that, I believe I could enjoy beautiful things very much.  Do I have to have them to live and survive... absolutely not, but I could certainly live with it, if it were readily available.  It was never really an option since the money flow was not there.  Which brings me to my second answer.  The stigma of money is that, if you have it you are greedy or people are extremely jealous of you for having it.  Most people go their whole life without earning enough to actually live comfortably.  I dream of being comfortable!  I aspire for that, but I also want more.  But I have to get there on my own.  I have always wanted to prove to the "virtual world" that I was powerful enough to make it ALL on my own.  Over the years I have learned that putting people in the right places, doing the things that they are strong at and desire to do more then me, would be beneficial.  I have always been of the mindset that .... oh just let me do it.....  You can learn all you want but if you don't apply what you learn then you are no further ahead.  You can earn all you want but if you don't apply what you earn then you are no further ahead!
