Habits are funny little creatures. Some are good for you, some are bad for you . . . and some are like gum on your shoe–you just can’t get rid of them no matter what you try.
Habits are the patterns we automatically perform day in, day out, without much awareness. They’re learned behaviors that become a strategy to making our way through this thing called life, whereby we keep repeating them to create a certain result or “reward.”
“Your balance in your bank account is basically the sum of your habits”
If you want to change your financial picture, change your habits.
To do this you need “buy-in” from your already reward-craving self.
Your habits serve you. Until you link a good habit with a similar “reward” or feeling a bad habit gives you, your smaller self won’t be bought in and you’ll sabotage yourself.
As you read through these 10 financial habits that will change your life, pick the top one that you want to try and then ask yourself, “what’s the reward I’ll get for doing this?” This is key to getting buy-in. Get the buy-in and then get going. Change your money habits, change your money life.
Remember, just pick one. Identify the “reward” for doing your one thing consistently and see what shows up. And when you feel like you want to quit, or go back to your old ways, know without a shadow of a doubt, your money breakthrough’s right around the corner. Keep going.
Let me know in the comments which one you’re picking. I’m here to support you.
Until next time, much abundance.
