If your Finances were a plant would it be Growing or Withering?
Having Financial stability and growth is not something that is acquired by luck or chance. It happens as a result of intentionally investing in key habits and principles coupled with the mindset of a winner, this will attract and cultivate the results you desire.
As a plant requires specific 'nutrients' and the right environment in order to grow, similarly our Financial life requires essential nutrients in order for us to thrive and achieve our goals. Last week we spoke about the first key nutrient which was Effective Cash flow management, if you missed that post you can read it by clicking the link below.
Mindset: There are many talented and intelligent people who fail to achieve their goals and see growth in their Finances because of their way of thinking.
Our thoughts and what we believe about ourselves directly affects our actions. If we think of ourselves as inferior, incapable of success, weak, unworthy, unintelligent, inexperienced these thoughts will influence the way that we navigate through life.
People who have a negative self image of themselves tend to have a low self-esteem. Consequently they tend to avoid trying new things, taking risks, shy away from opportunities that require them to come out of their comfort zone and doubt their ability to achieve their goals.
If you want to achieve your goals, you have to first believe that YOU have the ability to do so. Even if you are taking actions towards your goals, but deep down you do no not truly believe that you can achieve your goals, it will not happen! The self doubt will sabotage your success in one way or another, because your mind acts as the pilot of your life; it will direct your actions and the way in which you deliver them.
Success and failure starts in your mind, therefore it is imperative that you reject negative thoughts and ideas about yourself and choose to believe that you are capable of achieving whatever you put your mind to.
Our mind has the ability to create and visualise things that have not yet come into existence yet, hence your success or failure starts in your mind. If you truly believe and desire to achieve your goals ensure that you align your actions accordingly.
If your current Financial situation feels like you are Withering as opposed to growing in your finances there is always hope, if you begin to take control of your finances by taking actions that will improve your situation, you will make progress! But you have to be committed to your transformation.
