Repeat after me: I’m richer than I think and capable of living even richer.
When was the last time you took an audit of your thoughts surrounding money? Chances are you’re probably long overdue for one. Let’s face it. Most of us want more money, but don’t realize that we have less than glamorous thoughts about it. It probably stresses you out, makes you become desperate and constantly say to yourself, “I never have enough money when I need it.”
Well as innocent as those thoughts and feelings may be, I’ve learned that it may actually be hurting your earning potential. It’s rare that people who are doing well financially actually have a good relationship with money. And it’s rare that people who don’t place a stigma on people who are wealthy are wealthy people themselves.Don’t believe you do that? If you’ve ever rolled your eyes at the money the Kardashians have for “doing nothing” or the 18 year old driving around Jaguar, you could be guilty of subscribing to the stereotype.
Whether you believe that you’ll never pay off your student loans, its impossible to save money or you’ll never make money because you don’t have money, it could be predetermining your future in the worst possible ways.Don’t let unhealthy thoughts about money keep you stuck in financial struggles. Since it’s financial literacy month I figured it was the perfect time to help you take control of your financial health. Now I’m no financial expert in the least bit. You all know I’m still trying to get a handle on some debt. However, I do know a little bit about thoughts shaping your future. Mom always said what you think and say becomes your future. So why not apply that same tactic to gaining financial freedom.
While I’m clearly not rolling in dough yet, I always feel better saying my personal money mantra “I attract opportunities and money is always flowing towards me. I will be debt free at 30” I’m hoping that since April is financial literacy month that my personal money mantra will hold some extra weight and some new act of congress will forgive student debt for anyone who’s got rhythm.
