Many times, when we are in financial difficulties, we believe that what is necessary to solve the problem is money. There are plenty of financial advisers online that tell you not to ‘pinch pennies’, or budget, you just need to make more money.
That is not totally true.
Yes, more than likely, you do need to make more money; and that is not the only thing that is necessary to repair a challenging financial situation.
We all have read about working-class people who have come into large sums of money suddenly – a large inheritance, a court settlement, or winning the lottery – enough money that most people believe that worrying about having enough money for their needs would be a thing of the past.
And yet, within 5 years, like Cinderella after the ball, they are back where they began.
Why is this?
It is because how you think and feel about money (and those who possess large sums of it) controls your day-to-day actions in handling it, and those day-to-day actions will determine where you will end up in the future.
Question: What beliefs do you have about handling money? Will those beliefs create the money situation you desire?
