The 7 Principles of Positive Money

“So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great, good fortune.” - Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The mission of the Positive Money Club is to empower individuals and organizations to have a positive, productive, and purposeful relationship with money.

Unfortunately, money is stressful for many no matter what’s in our bank accounts.

  • We don’t have enough to meet basic needs like housing and food.

  • Costs for health and child care continue to climb and economic disparity abounds.

  • Emotionally, we feel ashamed of how much we make or don’t make, anxious in money conversations, or worried about our financial security.

Given that money doesn’t have a say in how it’s used, the buck stops with you and me. We make decisions every day that drive how we show up for money and ultimately for ourselves and others. This can feel negative or positive depending on what you bring to the table and what you choose to focus on.

This is why I created the 7 Principles of Positive Money. I wanted a simple way to guide financial decisions that are intentional and values-based. I wanted them to be accessible and relatable so anyone could apply them whether buying groceries or creating a will.

The 7 Principles of Positive Money

  1. Positive Money is a choice. When you choose Positive Money, you choose a relationship with money driven by love rather than fear.

  2. Positive Money is generational. When you’re aware of the beliefs and behaviors you inherit and pass along, you’re more intentional about your actions today.

  3. Positive Money serves a higher good. When you’re grounded by a higher good, you have the interests and needs of others in mind.

  4. Positive Money aligns head, heart, and habit. When your thoughts, feelings, and actions related to money are aligned, you experience ease and flow.

  5. Positive Money is an act of giving and receiving. When you give and receive equally, you experience the power of connection.

  6. Positive Money causes no harm. When you understand how your money choices cause harm to yourself and others, you take action to mitigate that harm.

  7. Positive Money is practice. When you practice Positive Money, you apply the principles to daily financial decisions with mindfulness and compassion.
