It’s important to have faith and adopt a mindset of knowing that things will work out when it comes to having confidence in affording children. It’s also important to be satisfied with what you have and appreciating the present moment, rather than focusing on what you don't have. That foundation keeps us from going outside ourselves to seek what we desire which leads to overspending and all kinds of other stress.
Things change over time, and you'll be able to provide more and more for your children as your resources expand. Breaking a generational curse is not about giving children material things, but rather passing along emotional intelligence.

- "Once you have faith, which you can call it love, you can call it faith, you can call it feeling good, you can call it satisfaction, you can call it appreciation, I'm just going to call it faith… But when you have a confident feeling that things work out you open up your genius."
