Many of the women I talk to are under great financial stress right now.
How do we de-stress when we’re thinking about money so we can focus on doing the work we’re meant to do, especially at times like this?
How can we replace a “lack” mentality with an “abundance” mentality?
Start by asking yourself: What is my relationship with money?
Your attitude towards money is super important when you carry out your venture. If you’re a woman with your own business, who you are – including your relationship with money – translates into your business.
A few months ago I finished my training in the MBM – Money Breakthrough Method program with Kendall Summer Hawk. Working with new ideas, suggestions, and exercises during the program caused me to take a deep look at my attitude toward money. These experiences transformed my life in many positive ways.
I want to share with you some highlights on how to improve your relationship with money.
How To Improve Your Relationship With Money
Redefine what money is
Money is a tool of exchange. Money is energy but it is also a bargaining tool that helps us get what we want and need.
Money is part of the daily life of each one of us, and it is not going to disappear from our lives.
Money does not define our own worth. However, there is a very close relationship between our self-esteem and our money problems.
Develop A Healthy Mindset About Money
A healthy mindset works for many things, not just money. For example, a woman who diets and is successful in maintaining her weight is someone who changes her eating habits.
He is not someone who is depriving himself or someone who sees food as a bad thing. He has only changed his eating habits. That person has developed a healthy mindset about how to feed on it.
Money, like diet, is an emotionally charged subject for most of us. We may have heard messages like these growing up: “We can’t do that”, “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, “You have to work hard to earn money”, etc.
Instead of feeling bad about not having money, take a step back… examine the origin of your beliefs about money and see how those beliefs manifest themselves in your money management habits, such as buying or acquiring new ones. debts. Ask yourself the question, “Are these values passed down from my family?” “Do I really need this or is it just a habit?”
Be Aware Of How You Feel Spending Money
You need to analyze your feelings both when you are making a purchase and at the end of the day.
For example, I love going to a bar and ordering a café con leche and two croissants. Let’s say that you are going to have a coffee with milk every day. When you’re there at the bar your emotion is “Wow! I feel very good! I love coffee with milk.” But later, how do you feel? If you feel good, great! Keep enjoying your coffee with milk every day!
But what if you feel guilt and remorse? Ask yourself, “Why do I keep putting myself in this situation every day if I feel guilty? If it makes me feel bad, why do I buy a latte every day?” Discussing your feelings during and after shopping is a great way to raise awareness and make changes.
Don’t Avoid Money Problems
There is nothing more stressful than a pile of unpaid bills piled on your desk. The energy from those bills piling up around charges your energy negatively, especially if money is tight that month.
If you’re having trouble making your payments, you need to do something about it right away. Pick up the phone and say, “This is what is happening to me. Is there a way we can fix it?”
Going ahead and having these conversations is going to relieve some of the stress. Another benefit is that most companies want to work things out if you’re just willing to make that phone call.
Abundance Comes To You Through Emotions
If you truly believe that your glass is half full instead of half empty, you are going to feel abundance. Find what fills your heart with happiness. They are your children? Take care of your plants? Take a walk in nature? Those simple things that make you happy are the root of your abundance.
I enjoy connecting with other women and talking about our challenges, I always learn something new and it’s beautiful to connect with someone on a deeper level. There is richness in my life in the experience of sharing and learning with other women.
The next time you feel the stress rising – perhaps when an unexpected bill comes along, instead of despairing about how you’re going to pay it off, take a break.
Stand up, take a deep breath, and evoke your feelings of abundance, the simple things that make you happy. Abundance comes in many ways, it’s not just about money.
If you apply these suggestions you will begin to change your relationship with money. If you found this information helpful, please share it with me, I’d love to hear what you think!
