Want to know the first step to having a better relationship with your money is?
“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
I love this quote from Albert Einstein and when it comes to money, we all make money mistakes.
Not only do we make mistakes but then we feel horrible about them and ourselves.
Can you relate? Have you ever struggled with being critical of yourself over a money mistake? Are you weighed down with regret over what you did or didn’t do? Do you keep thinking and thinking and thinking, going round and round wishing you’d done things differently?
Me too! To make it worse […]
Sure, goals are important (and critical to your success) but they are not enough. There is more at work than meets the eye. If you’re not where you want to be and ‘goal setting’ hasn’t been working for you, then keep reading!
Here are the probable reasons why;
The ‘Big Kahuna’; You haven’t bought into your ‘why’ you want it.
Sure, you may have said that you want to make more money to travel or pay off […]
Talking money of course!
A big reason why many couples argue about money involves differing values and conflicting goals which leads into a battle of; “I’m right … your wrong!”
Here’s why this happens: most couples do not have “Money Talks”. Sure they talk about money in varying degrees – but they don’t get into the ‘nitty gritty’ of their numbers and how the other person feels.
Let’s face it, when cashflow is good, money arguments usually are few – if any.
But when cashflow changes (usually due to less money coming in or expenses going up) […]
Did you know that research shows that opposites tend to attract to each other in relationships?
The crazy thing is that when it comes to money and certain spending habits; savers, who commonly spend less than they would like to spend, and spenders who generally spend more than they would rather spend, tend to marry each other, in fact that’s true for me!
We are more likely to be attracted to partners who possess characteristics different to those we don’t really like in ourselves. You’d think that they would complement each other and you’d […]
Are you having an ‘out of money’ experience?
If so, chances are that it’s due to your habits, attitude and a real ‘tug of war’ inside you.
We all have desires, dreams and beliefs that pull us towards achieving the goals we have in life right? But sometimes we start to make progress on our goals and then suddenly something happens to sabotage it; either our thoughts, willpower, beliefs and even unknown forces that stop us cold in our tracks. What is going on, we know we want the outcome, so what is happening?
When it comes to attracting either more money or having more success, I’ve found what is really stopping us from living our dreams is limiting beliefs. Unknowingly (in most cases) we allow our fears and doubts to sabotage our success. And one thing I know for sure is that our beliefs are blueprints for our reality.
This mindset includes all your beliefs, values and experiences you’ve had so far… the […]
My guess is you don’t want to hide from money you want it to flow and attract it…right? Well the reality is that in order to do that, you have to be willing to open your eyes and know in detail where you stand financially.
We all have to take responsibility; for not only our present behaviours, but past ones too. It’s important that we understand how we have created our current financial reality and why. This is where the proverbial ‘rubber meets the road’ because when we unveil the truths and dig through our money beliefs, the truth is revealed. […]
After being a financial advisor for over 19 years I can expertly tell you that ‘Money’ is a highly emotional subject!
And there are lots of reasons why. Maybe you’ve hit a financial ceiling in your business and want to make more… maybe you are just starting out and you are having a hard time just trying to bring some money in! For some of you it feels like feast or famine. I know how scary that can feel and how much it drains your energy.
Whether its your business, career, relationship, it may be all good but you want it to […]
