In recent times, one aspect that has garnered my utmost attention and appreciation is the dedicated effort I'm putting into cultivating and refining my money mindset. This intentional focus on my relationship with money and my perceptions surrounding it has proven to be an incredibly valuable endeavor.
Why Prioritize Your Money Mindset?
Because when it comes to money, mindset trumps knowledge every time! Whether you believe it or not, how you think about money is more important than your ability to earn it!
Reframing Your Path to Financial Prosperity
Flipping the financial script is not just about educating yourself about the rules of the money game. It's just as much about how you actively think about your money and the money you want to earn. Our current mindset got us to where we are, but it will not get us to where we want to go.
When More Earnings Lead to Greater Money Woes
The people I have worked with who struggle with their finances make more than the average person. I tell you this because most people struggling think making more money will change their lives.
Instead, they would still stress about money because they'd have even bigger money problems.
Why is that?
Why would someone who makes plenty of money still feel stressed about money?
It is because the same financial script keeps playing in their head, no matter how little or how much money they earn. Our money beliefs impact how we handle it, and these beliefs can be traced back to our childhood.
