Most of the time we hear people say they are bad with money. It’s a shame to hear people say that. If I am asked directly about money, my response at this point would be that I’m getting better handling money. I know what habits I want to fix.
What I have learned over the years is that money is inanimate and success or failure with money comes down to habits, and habits can be changed.
Each moment in life that we live offers us a chance to make a different choice with money. The way we see ourselves with money is not written in stone. We have the ability to make better choices.
For many, money itself carries a negative emotion for some reason. Having a comfortable cushion, or even being rich, means that our personalities have to change, at least in some people’s minds.
Actually, money only magnifies who we really are deep inside. If we are giving people, we will strive to help others with our money as the opportunities arise.
So, how do we get better with money, make solid choices that will help us develop a more solid bank balance?
We develop some mental toughness and create better habits, and we study money disciplines and talk with those who are successful with their money. If we talk to broke people we likely won’t get very far trying to create more financial stability.
I think mental toughness is key. We have to tell ourselves, on a daily basis, that we are going to set a higher standard financially. Then take the daily steps necessary, and an accountability partner could help in a huge way.
Let me know your thoughts on this …. I would enjoy a conversation about this subject.
