Let’s start to understand the basic truth!
Your current financial situation is the accumulative behaviors you have had in the past! And in order for you to achieve your financial goals effective, it is important to understand what your current behaviors & actions, beliefs & thoughts, and emotions are!
Neuro-science studies have shown that 90% of our decision-making occurs in the subconscious mind, and our emotions play a very big role in driving our habits and behaviours towards money!
Even if we have the best intentions, sometimes we don’t always get the results that we desire!
A healthy relationship with money comprises of the alignment of 3 things:
- What we think (our beliefs about money)
- How we feel (our emotions about money)
- What we do (our actions with money)
Let’s take the example of a budget. Most of us have tried to budget before (we’ve taken positive action). But underneath those positive steps were negative thoughts and feelings (I can’t do this, or budgets are restrictive, I feel deprived)…. Sound familiar?
When we don’t explore the thoughts and feelings, or align them with the positive action we are taking, we won’t get the results we are seeking! A Positive + Negative + Negative = Negative!
Let’s discover how each element of your financial wellness is and what you can work on to achieve your financial happiness!
Your money mindset is a unique set of core beliefs about money and how it works in the world. Put simply, it is your attitude to money.
Your money mindset drives how you make financial decisions every day, and it can have a big impact on your ability to achieve your goals. It guides not only what you do with your money, but who you associate with, the advice you listen to and your overall financial direction. With a healthy money mindset, you make better choices with your money and are more easily able to overcome your financial challenges.
Subconscious Relationship with Money
90% of our decision making is driven by our subconscious mind. Included in your subconscious mind are inherited patterns of thoughts, ideas and images that have been passed down through the collective unconscious and also your innate money types.
Financial anxiety has been described by psychologists as “an uneasy and unhealthy attitude toward engaging with, and administering […] personal finances in an effective way.”
The difference between financial anxiety and everyday money worry is the way it interferes with your ability to live your life.
Power to Execute
This is your ability to take action and complete the tasks required to achieve your goals.
Often times we find ourselves in the position that even though we have the desire to make a change for our current circumstances, we find ourselves being lack of power to execute the plan because there are always other things to do or lack of time, or simply ‘it’s not on our priority’.
In 2015, the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) defined financial well-being as a state of being wherein you:
- Have control over day-to-day, month-to-month finances;
- Have the capacity to absorb a financial shock;
- Are on track to meet your financial goals; and
- Have the financial freedom to make the choices that allow you to enjoy life.
Because individuals have different personal values, financial wellness looks different for everybody.
