How to be the BOSS of Your Own Money
STOP: Don’t buy another book about mind and money management NOT EVEN MINE until you read every word on this page. This could save you years of heartache and bucket loads of cash!
No matter what your age, if you knew then what you should have done with your money, you could have done something different to keep your future financial security in “cheque”. But not all of us were that sure what to do. Including me.
“Grab a brain!” I used to hear this in my own home. I laugh because I know precisely what was happening and with whom when the phrase was suggested. I think you can relate. However, what I’m suggesting is we should use the phrase “Grow a brain!” instead. Our brains are intricate learning tools, and if not kept limbered with open-mindedness and eagerness to find out more about how to live better lives, we will suffer with loneliness, desperation, debt and fear. For example, avoiding responsibility of developing new brain capabilities keeps us repeating past patterns, and blocks us from becoming more creative and conscious of better lives, better money.
In other words, if you want to change you have to change your brain. In order to do that, you have to keep expanding your experiences. Ask good questions. You know yourself. Or do you? Imagine for a second that most of the money that runs through your fingers, stays with you, stays in your bank account. Can you imagine this? I hope so, because when you believe it, those thoughts and corresponding feelings about money are the glue that either supports you to keep money or you retreat from it. If each time you are asked about or are reminded about money, the first notion that pops into your head is, money flows through me like a bad case of diarrhea. What, not you? All right. Just in case, let’s change that mental image once and for all.
NOW, go ahead and grab this little book. I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU…How you could go from nightmares to sleeping peacefully when you begin to control your money instead of it controlling you into the poorhouse, yanking on the spending chain around your neck.
