Your Mindset Matters
There’s a whole other side to money. Your mindset. Money mindset is your individual set of core beliefs, many of these have been inherited from your parents. Your mindset shapes what you think you can and cannot spend money on, as well as how much you are entitled to. It also influences the way you manage your debts and the value you place on things.
Your money mindset also influences the attitude that you have towards others, whether they are perceived to be rich or poor. Do you think that the rich are evil, greedy and materialistic? Do you believe that the poor are the salt of the earth, so if you can, you need to be more like them? The way that you handle yourself will give you some indication about your mindset. What’s fascinating about the
money mindset is that your beliefs will reside in your unconscious mind. It lays there dormant, until you’re ready to take the key and unlock it.
To find out your relationship with money, it's best to start with a trip of self-exploration.
Starting from a point of self-awareness will help you understand how money works in your world and will also reflect the attitude you have towards it.
Why is it Important to Understand Your Mindset in Relation to Money?
Understanding where your mindset about money comes from and your relationship to it will help you make a positive change. Before you are about to go on a journey, you plug your coordinates into your GPS, as this will help you to know where you’re going. The only difference with your financial journey is you’ll never actually arrive at the destination. You’ll just carry on growing. The journey is the goal.
How Do I Shift My Money Mindset?
Shifting your mindset starts with you having a good level of awareness about your situation. There are numerous questions you can explore with yourself and your immediate community to discover your true feelings about money. Pay attention to your thoughts, and understand your behaviors. Your thoughts will influence your feelings and, in turn, your feelings will influence your behavior.
We all deal with money every day, but rarely do we stop to understand our feelings about money and its management. Your mindset about money really has nothing to do with how much money you generate or how much money you have. There are very wealthy people who live with a scarcity mentality. They believe that there is not enough money to go around and that they will never have enough. There are also people who by having a minimal amount of possessions makes them feel wealthy.
In spite of the importance that we have assigned to money as the current symbol for material abundance in our world, we should remember this important truth: money is just paper. The symbol it uses makes no difference, money is just another form of energy. Its value and meaning is in our mind, and the amount of energy it is worth is decided by us.
