About the episode

The episode started with Ted defining and stating the common challenges of personal development. He also had an insightful explanation on how security being equated to wealth is actually a misnomer.  Ted also discussed the practices and mechanisms behind the money behavior system, a model that Ted developed himself after committing so many mistakes in money management. He also gave us a peek into the One Size Fits One Approach and how that applies in real life.

In conclusion

According to Ted, “financial security is nothing but peace of mind in your chosen lifestyle.” A good strategy on achieving so-called security is to start by benchmarking yourself and accepting who you really are — what’s your money temperament and how are you naturally wired with money? Also remember that where you spend your time and put your money codifies your values.
