Breaking the myths and misconceptions that are destroying your financial plan

With one quick glimpse on any media outlet, you are likely to encounter the doom and gloom prophecies foretelling the end of the American Dream.  While everything is not as fatalistic as it seems, there are daunting realities we must face about the American economic system.

Why do so many people struggle financially when we live in one of the most free and abundant times in modern history?  There is no shortage of books, websites, and “how-to” courses out there on how to achieve financial success and independence.  I believe the fundamental reason why so many people struggle financially is because of the concept that I refer to as MythConceptions which is a combination of myths and misconceptions.

Let’s consider the definition of both a Myth and a Miss conception.

Myth: A widely held but false belief or idea

Misconception: A view or opinion that is incorrect becasue it is based on faulty thinking or understanding

Nearly everything taught in the traditional model of personal finance is misleading, dangerous or outright wrong.

The fundamental reason why most people struggle financially despite the abundance around them is becasue the financial model that most people blindly accept today is WRONG.

The faster you can recognize the flaws in the tools shared by the masses as the traditional, tried and true, way to build wealth and accumulate savings the easier you will be able to see they system for what it is and chose differently.
