Your Mindset Needs A Jumpstart

3 Quick Ways To Improve Your Money Mindset

Having a positive money mindset isn’t just thinking positive. Money mindset includes how you feel about your money, what you tell yourself, how much you value yourself and your money, and the energy you put toward your money. 

Why does it matter what we think about our money at all? Statistics show that Americans don’t feel confident in their abilities, in addition to the fact that they’re struggling to pay their bills. This tells me that it’s important that we leverage our money mindset. Anything that will give us leverage in regards to making, saving and spending our money is a bonus. And I don’t know about you, but anything that helps me create more money in less time sounds like a win to me. 

How can we get our money mindset working for us? Here are 3 quick ways to jumpstart your money mindset:

1. Believe that wealth is possible for you

The mind is very powerful. If you don’t believe that wealth is possible for you, it never will be. This why it’s important that you know what you want and believe that it’s possible for you. When we decide that something is possible we can open doors that we didn’t even know were closed. 

2. Protect your mindset like it’s your most prized possession

Our thoughts end up becoming part of who we are. Protect your mindset; make it your first priority. If you’re used to thinking negative or tasking trash to yourself, stop it. Instead focus on ways that you’re succeeding with your financial dreams, goals and plans.

3. Anchor your thoughts with money affirmations

I honestly used to make fun of affirmations, but the truth is that they can be used strategically to help us keep our cool when we feel out of control. When you find yourself stressing about money or having negative thoughts about money, remind yourself that you’re a work in progress and it’s ok. 

Improving your money mindset takes a little bit of work, but it’s worth it in the long run. What baby steps will you take to improve your money mindset?
