Are You a Money Slave?
Imagine being powerful, clear, and deliberate about your money, and having a worry-free, abundant life. Being aware of your financial situation boosts your personal power. I’ve discovered that many individuals are slaves to their money, which means basically that their money dictates what they can and cannot have. This is really disempowering.
“I’d want to go out to lunch with my buddy for lunch (take a trip, rent a coach, purchase a new automobile) however I can’t afford it,” those who are slaves to their money remark. Their decision-making is based on a sense of scarcity, which leads to increased scarcity in their lives.
It is quite simple for individuals to make judgments which keep them in the servant position when they are servants to their money. For fear of not having enough, they opt not to invest in themselves. They begin to avoid problems related to their financial condition. They are preoccupied with money and let money to dictate what they may and cannot have. Their attention is drawn to what they lack or cannot afford.
Money management is a metaphor for how we live our lives. “How you do one thing is how you do everything,” as the adage goes. This implies that you handle your money in the same way you manage your life. If you don’t have enough money, for example, you can persuade yourself that you don’t have enough time. Another example is how not knowing how much money is in your bank account may lead to being distracted when it comes to taking action toward your life goal. Avoiding financial responsibility often leads to avoidance of responsibility for your life and the construction of your happiness.
One of the main reasons individuals lack money, in my opinion, is that they have endured a lack of it. They’ve endured having less than a specific amount of money in their bank accounts, resulting in costly overdraft and late penalties. People who are enslaved by their money are unaware of how to draw more of it into their lives. They avoid checking their bank accounts or paying bills, and they accept less than they deserve.
When it comes to money, a person who is empowered has the flexibility to make choices that are best for them, their families, and their businesses. They have financial independence, as shown by their bank accounts “Yes, indeed! Whatever your heart wishes, you can have, be, or do!” They live in a prosperous environment and make judgments based on it.
It’s time to make a significant financial change and finally take control of your finances.
Here are three ways to help you Stop Being a Slave to Your Money and Take Control of Your Life:
Be truthful to yourself.
Be willing to modify your mindset about money and have an open and honest conversation with yourself. Your higher self would never say it’s OK to drain your accounts to zero balances and then go even lower with overdraft penalties, and you shouldn’t either. Accurately assess your existing financial situation and set the bar for what you will accept in your bank account. If you consistently finish up in the red at the end of the month, resolve not to endure it any more; instead, resolve to never have less than $100 in your bank account.
When individuals start to think about how they spend their money and decide to make adjustments, I’ve discovered that they really find more money. Look at all of the locations in your life where you have money and figure out how to earn more. Change your spending habits, use your skills to make more money, or put your ideas into action to bring more money into your life.
Before you spend money, consider if the item you’re buying will bring value to your life. Ask yourself whether you’re spending money to fill a hole in your life. Are you spending because you feel you’ll never have enough and it’s pointless to save? If so, you’re a slave to your money.
Make your Honest Money List on a sheet of paper. Make a list of the spending habits that aren’t benefiting you and are preventing you from achieving financial success. Then make a list of the things you’re willing to alter. Make a pledge to be empowered with your money by being honest with yourself.
Change Your Mindset
Have you ever dreamt about how much you could do if you only had enough money? The secret to drawing more money into your life is to think of it as abundant. All you have to do now is learn to control your inner money gremlin.
Fear is your inner money gremlin. It is critical of itself, has doubts, worries, and then doubts again. It feeds on scarcity and inadequacy. The inner money gremlin chatter may be deafening, stopping us in our tracks. It soon convinces you that your life will always be in a condition of financial insecurity and disarray.
When you start to understand your limiting beliefs about money, you’ll be able to take steps toward financial abundance.
The following are some (totally erroneous) limiting beliefs:
I just do not understand how to handle my finances.
I wouldn’t be having so much problems if I was really intended to be in this field.
Because of the state of the economy, this is not the time for me to follow my ambition.
The source of all evil is money.
Moneyed people have things a lot easier than I do.
I’m in a lot of debt; it’s terrible.
It’s time to start working through your money-related limiting beliefs and become a master at controlling them. The inner money gremlin of successful individuals is the same. The difference is that they recognize that what the gremlin says them has nothing to do with who they are or their life goal. They concentrate on momentum toward their objectives rather than their inner gremlin’s chatter.
Have courage and be aware of your surroundings.
Begin to think that you are entitled to financial security starting now. You don’t have to hide your face in shame because your bank account balance isn’t as high as you’d want.
You must, however, be bold and make the decision to increase your consciousness. Decide that your bills will no longer have influence over you. Instead, let your money guide you. The first step is to examine your existing financial status objectively.
Begin by opening all of the banknotes that have been piled up and reading the statements. If you’ve given someone else your financial authority because you don’t think you’re good with money, set up a meeting with them to discuss your financial situation. Now is the time to reclaim your power.
To make long-term changes, you must first get to know your money, and one of the greatest ways to get to know your money is to look at it honestly. It may be unpleasant at first, but if you stick with it, you’ll find yourself becoming more at ease and feeling more powerful. A better degree of confidence is generated via the process of taking bold action and being more conscious of what you have, not by having more money.
When you make the decision to transform your relationship with money, you will immediately feel liberated and hopeful. If you let money to dictate what you can accomplish, be, or have, it will. When you start to pay attention to your money, completely feel you are deserving of more, and get comfortable with it, it loses its power over you. The options become limitless.
