Do you want to win with your money? Well, you have to go against the conventional wisdom and against what most people are doing with their money.
Here are 7 weird things to do with your money that will put you on the path to financial wellness.
No, I am not crazy. But I do believe that we all have “voices in our head” that influence our path of action in any area of our lives.
Sometimes there is a voice speaks from our childhood, what we heard from parents or teachers about what we could do or should do.
Perhaps the voice of a spouse or a significant other who can either help to build up or tear down our self-worth.
Or it could be the voice of a supervisor which influences what we think about ourselves and our value in the market place.
When it comes to managing money, we also have many voices in our head.
The voices of the news shows which speak to the current state of the economy and whether or not the American Dream is still alive.
Or the voice of the politician who thinks government is the answer to all of our economic problems.
Or the voice of a friend or relative which believes winning with money is just a dream and that you are better off by playing the lottery and hoping to win it.
After all, someone has to win. Right?
In terms of how you and I can be successful in managing money, it only matters what we believe is true about our particular situation.
It is not about what the media thinks, what politicians think, or even what your relatives and friends think. Neither one of them pays your bills.
Neither one of them is in charge of your economy. You are in charge.
Even the advice you receive by reading this blog matters very little if you don’t take action on it.
It only matters what you believe to be true, because your success is ultimately determined by what you believe.
So, ask yourself these questions and consider your answers:
How are you doing so far?
In the end, it is all about what you believe. Your beliefs will determine your actions.
So, what are the voices in your head saying about managing money?
“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”
Philippians 4:8 (NASB)
