Everyone worries about having enough money, and most of us could do with additional funds in our finances. When it comes to making and saving more money, the power of the mind can go a long way. The right mindset about one’s money is a huge key to earning and saving greater amounts.
According to Holly Signorelli, a Certified Public Accountant and Wealth Strategist, three basic practices of thought can be crucial in maintaining financial confidence, and achieving financial goals. The first step, maintaining a positive attitude and being mentally optimistic about your personal finances, and as Holly states, “Your awareness will be about making more money and not the negative.” As she puts it, it is about changing the conversation. This means thoughts and dialogues about your money should be encouragements of daily objectives, while trying not to be pessimistic.
A simple ten-minute personal pep talk of positive affirmations is a good start, saying something like, “I’m going to make more money than I did yesterday,” at the beginning of the day. The second thing practice is following your intuition. When you are about to make a large purchase, what does your gut tell you? If you get that sinking, bad feeling in your body about it, that’s your intuition telling you that it’s the wrong decision. People are more in tuned with their intuition than they know, and Holly suggests that you don’t ignore that instinct.
The third practice that she suggests is writing your money story. This means actually writing down your monetary goals as if they have already happened. An example would be writing out how you made a certain amount of money, say $100,000 dollars, and this gears your psyche up to actually attain that goal. The correlation between writing things down and achieving them has been shown to work wonders. Hopefully these tips give you personal financial success.
