Why The Name Cult Of Money?
The word cult in current popular usage usually refers to a new religious movement or other group whose beliefs or practices are considered abnormal or bizarre. The word originally denoted a system of ritual practices.
Let's face the truth - our belief in money is cult-like. Whether you believe 100% in fiat currency (i.e. dollars), or you think cryptocurrency like Bitcoin is the future - you're part of a movement.
And your basic interaction with money at any level requires a system of ritual practices - from budgeting and investing, to selecting the tools you prefer to use (and I think we know quite a few tools that have a cult-like following).
The key to successfully building wealth and finding happiness is the following of systematic ritual practices. These could be rituals such as paying yourself first, doing only what you love, and always following the golden rule with people.
In the current popular meaning, "cult" is also about behavior considered abnormal. Most Americans have credit card debt. Most don’t save enough. Most spend more than they make, and more than half couldn’t come up with $400 emergency expense. And that's not even touching new technologies like crypto.
If that is normal, I would say you want to be abnormal!
