5 Ways to Change Your Money Mindset

5 Ways to Change Your Money Mindset
You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you. ~Maya Angelou

When we feel stuck, especially financially, it’s really hard to see beyond our situation. We put huge limits on what is possible for us, and we don’t really think that we have any options.

But there are always options. Always.

It just takes a little creativity and shift in perspective to be able to see them clearly.

Here are 5 ways to help you change the way you think about money.

1. Change your mindset

 Money is just energy, and the longer you believe you will never have it, the longer you’ll be stuck in this money rut. Challenge your current perspective on money by filling in the blank “Making money is _______”. Was your answer hard / stressful / boring / etc? If yes, time to change that! Fill in the blank with NEW word from the following options – fun / exciting / easy. Decide to try on this new mindset for the next month, and see what changes.

2. Stop spending money on frivolous things

Sure, it’s nice to have the luxury of going out for coffee and taking taxis to work. But if you’re using money as an excuse as to why you don’t have what you want in your life, then you have to make choices about where you’re spending. Every single time you pull out your wallet, ask yourself “Is spending this money helping me get closer to my goal?” If the answer is no, put it away and walk on by. Yes, it’ll sting in the moment, but when you can finally invest in your bigger life goals, you’ll be grateful you had the willpower to say no when it mattered.

3. Start talking about what you want

Put it at the forefront of your mind everyday. Tell everyone you know. Talk to strangers about it. How could this possibly help you with money? You never know. There just might be someone out there who has connections to someone or something that can help you get it. The more you let the world know you’re serious about asking it happen, the easier it is for people to help you get what you want.

4. Make saving money a game

 Every time you say no to spending frivolously, keep track of exactly how much money you saved, and put that exact amount of cash in your “BIG DREAM” jar/account (you do have one of those, don’t you?). As you watch your jar fill up, it becomes more and more motivating to continue to save, knowing that you’re saving for something that really matters. Toss your spare change in there while you’re at it.

5. Get creative with your money-maker

 It’s not all about saving – you’ve gotta be bringing in more moolah too. I guarantee there are at least 50 ways that you could be making more money right now. Don’t believe me?

Well, in the next article I will share with you a list of 10 things that could help you earn more money, if you promise to finish the last 40, OK? :)
