This topic strays away from a little from our normal blog posts but it is a very important topic that affects everyone all around the world. So far in 2019, I have read tons of books on the "money mindset" topic. Not intentionally but the books that I seem to have been drawn to were empowering and I believe, subconsciously, what I needed in my life. You see, the brain works in a very strange way. If we say something enough times, we believe it and subconsciously we work very hard to make it happen.
Here are five steps that may help master the money mindset, according to frugalchiclife.com:
Money Tip 1: Let go of the past!
We have all made money mistakes in the past, let it go and start fresh for 2020.
Money Tip 2: The timing will never be perfect.
You can't wait for the next big thing to happen or wait until some random lump sum of money appears out of thin air. You have to commit to moving forward with what you have, regardless of your income.
Money Tip 3: Be careful with your words.
The more negativity you allow in your vocabulary is detrimental to your bank account. You set yourself up for failure. Words have power. Only use positive words like: "I love the way money makes me feel."
Money Tip 4: It's about progress, not perfection.
It's okay if you have some adjustments in your budget. Life happens, we all know this. Don't give up if one thing doesn't go the way you planned.
Money Tip 5: Don't wait until you are out of debt to start living your life.
Don't be so focused on the light at the end of the tunnel that you don't enjoy the scenery that passes you by. Allow yourself and your family some gratification and small rewards for your leaps in paying off debt.
