3 Steps to Take to Improve Your Money Mindset
Are you tired of feeling stressed and anxious about money? Do you want to finally feel confident and in control of your finances? If so, then it's time to change your mindset around money.
In my upcoming book, Facing Financial Fears, we examine and overcome the stigmas women face around money. One of those issues, is that we are often socialized to believe that we're not supposed to talk about our finances.
This can lead to a negative relationship with money, which can have a serious impact on our lives. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to improve your mindset around money.
By the end of this post, you'll have a better understanding of how to approach your finances from a more positive and empowered perspective.
1. Acknowledge Your Money Story
One of the first steps you can take to improve your mindset around money is to acknowledge your money story. This is the story that you tell yourself about money, and it's often based on our past experiences and beliefs.
For example, maybe you grew up believing that money is evil or that rich people are greedy. Maybe you've always struggled with money and you believe that you're just not good with it. Or maybe you've never really thought about your relationship with money before.
Whatever your money story is, it's important to become aware of it. Once you know what your story is, you can start to challenge and change the negative beliefs that might be holding you back.
2. Reframe Your Relationship with Money
The second step you can take to improve your mindset around money is to reframe your relationship with it. This means changing the way you think about money and what it represents in your life.
For example, instead of thinking of money as something that's scarce or hard to come by, try thinking of it as a tool that can help you achieve your goals. Or instead of seeing money as something that causes stress and anxiety, try viewing it as a source of security and abundance.
When you change the way you think about money, you'll start to see it in a whole new light. And this can have a major impact on your ability to handle your finances in a more positive and empowered way.
3. Invest in Yourself
The third and final step you can take to improve your mindset around money is to invest in yourself. This means taking the time to educate yourself about personal finance and investing. It also means working on building your confidence and self-esteem.
When you invest in yourself, you're sending a powerful message to yourself that you're worth it. You're worth the time, energy, and resources necessary to achieve your financial goals. And this can make all the difference in terms of how you approach and manage your money.
So there you have it: three steps you can take to improve your mindset around money. By following these steps, you'll be well on your way to developing a more positive and empowered relationship with your finances. And that's a goal we can all strive for!
