The approach of Halloween, with thoughts of ghosts and goblins, is a good time to think about what really frightens you. Get past the images of spiders and snakes and think about what really scares you in life. Losing a loved one. Cancer. Dementia. Financial success.

If you are like many people, struggling to reach the lifestyle and savings goals you’ve set for yourself, and finding yourself failing to stick to your own plans, fear of financial success could be at play. The unconscious belief that “rich” people are not good people could be de-railing your efforts.
