|Are you thinking your thoughts or are old thoughts thinking you?
We’ve all heard this before, but I believe we need to hear it over and over again, until it is ingrained in who we are and what we do.
96-98% of our thoughts are fed by our beliefs and habits which in the end, creates our results.
Money is never our problem – or the lack of money is never our problem. It’s our beliefs and habits that are either serving us or sabotaging us.
Let me ask you this; “Are you interested in […]
|As we head into the final months of 2017… I have a question for you…
‘Is your life where you thought (maybe planned) it to be at the beginning of the year?’
‘If you set any goals, how are you doing?’
If you are rocking it out – congratulations, it does feel amazing when you are on target and having fun, making money, in a fantastic relationship, travelling or what ever your source of ‘joy’ is!
If you’re not where you wanted to be, why not?
Did circumstances beyond your control come up?
Did you make the […]
I don’t know about you…but I feel like someone flicked the switch from summer to fall … overnight!
Holy cow we needed the rain, but I had to light the pilot on the fireplace and turn on the furnace!
For me, this is a signal to start planning my annual trip to Mexico!
(My view in a couple of months!)
Now sometimes people say to me; “It must be nice to go away every winter…”
To which I reply… “It is … and you can too […]
What a fantastic summer I had!
Lots of golf, sun and fun.
But now it’s time to check back in with my goals and rock out the rest of the year!
A couple of nights ago, at my local Women’s Business Network, I talked about how women are allowing money problems to mess up their business (and life).
Money is a catch-all bucket of excuses and missed opportunities in our businesses … and lives for that matter. Because how you do money is how you do EVERYTHING. It ripples into all areas of your life.
Most of the ladies were nodding their head along when […]
Want to know the first step to having a better relationship with your money is?
You have to see a reality where your success with money is possible.
Because when you believe that you can overcome challenges by changing your behaviour, you choose to believe that you live in a world in which challenges can be overcome.
What you do (your […]
“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 […]
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) […]
I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that you’ve been stressed about money … at least once.
Bottom line – money gives us better choices. Money impacts almost everything in our lives from the food we buy, to the car we drive, the house we live in, vacations, clothes… But what we don’t like to admit (or acknowledge) is how much money (and especially debt) can actually affect our health.
Not sleeping due to worrying about money is a common thread with clients that come to me for advice and mentoring. It’s been […]
When it comes to basic money management most of us know what we are ‘supposed’ to do, you know the basics; spend less than you earn – save for an emergency – and invest for your future.
However, establishing ‘good’ habits around money is easier said than done, for a whole lot of reasons!
Managing your money and other important things in your life (like an exercise or eating healthy program) takes discipline. And guess what, discipline isn’t a natural state for everyday or everyone. Oh, and let’s add the guilt and shame that you carry […]
