4 Money Behaviours to Work on in 2023Jan 04, 2023
We’re 5 days into 2023 - how much have you changed in the past 5 days?
Let’s be real.
You’re not going to change your behaviour overnight. But once you decide you’re ready to make a change, you can heal and transform your life.
That change didn’t have to be on January 1st, it could have begun long before, or it could begin today.
Since many people are in new year mode and want to make some changes, it’s a good time for me to lay out four money behaviours you can work on shifting this year.
Here we go!
1. Not being intentional about your life.
I’m all for going with the flow and taking life one day at a time, but this should be coupled with moving authentically and intentionally as the spirit leads.
Are you so busy with life that you don’t take time to sit and reflect on your life? Maybe it’s time to make a change.
You’ll need to sit with yourself and ask some potentially uncomfortable questions. Only when you do this will you be able to plan for the wealth you’ll need to fund your lifestyle.
2. Thinking others have it better than you.
You’ve heard that comparison is the thief of joy or to stay in and focus on your own lane, right?
I want you to consider how much time and mental energy you spend thinking about what others are doing and how it does nothing to change your life. How many hours per day? Maybe more than you realise.
Ask yourself: What is it about their life that has you so intrigued?
Think about the amazing things you could do with your life if you channel that energy and act on it. Focus on living your life and making your money.
3. Feeling embarrassed about past money decisions.
Sometimes you didn’t know better, and other times, maybe you did know better. Regardless, you can’t change the past, and feeling embarrassed won’t change the decisions you’ve made.
Learning from your past decision will help you make empowered decisions moving forward, and if you find yourself continuously making the same “embarrassing” decisions, it’s time to break the cycle.
To Love Yourself Financially means forgiving yourself and giving yourself the grace to let go, heal and move on.
4. Obsessing over your future.
Being stuck in your thoughts keeps you frustrated with your current circumstances and paralyses you from taking action.
Practising gratitude and mindfulness will help ground you in the present so you can be content. Being content allows you to appreciate the present while continuously working towards intentionally transforming your life (see point 1). As you transform your life, you allow yourself to be open to more abundance.
Which of these four sounds familiar? Remember, there’s only room for grace this year as you work on shifting these behaviours.
To Love Yourself Financially, you must first be aware of what you want to change. That’s how transformation begins. You may not have been ready in the past, but today’s the day you can start!
