Money… something that I’m sure every single one of us thinks about at least once on a daily basis. Whether you’re strategizing new ways to earn it, making new plans to spend it or save it; money is on all of our minds (some more than others of course). What if I told you that your perception about money has a direct effect on how you earn, spend, and save it? Further, if you want to improve your finances you have to start by reprogramming your money mindset.
I have a confession to make – the relationship that I have with money needs some work. Although I love money and the many comforts that it affords me in life, I realized that my money management skills over the last two years were nothing to brag about. Yes I have a great job, loving relationship, and bomb ass friends. In reality, most would look at my life and not see anything wrong, but there’s a dark cloud that’s been following me for a few years now: my debt.
My debt, I finally realized, is a direct result of my tumultuous relationship with money. But instead of villainizing the credit card companies, I’ve decided to own my shit. After my admission, it suddenly clicked – if I had a better relationship with money, I wouldn’t be in this situation with my debt! Duh! Once I faced that hard truth; I decided enough was enough – and I dedicated myself to giving my relationship with money a much-needed makeover.
