20171215_085629

 

HABITS

There are habits that can hinder us from personal growth to think big if you keep indulging in them.
These habits are either from your environment, family and friends. They limit our thoughts and action and they hinder us from moving forward. These habits become part of our lives that they become normal and day-to-day activities and we seem not to be bothered but feel extremely comfortable with where you are. If you look at the people around you, their words and lives are limited that they can’t think big. You will notice worry, anger, aggressiveness, fighting and even murder cases. Do you know this habit affect you? Do you know it’s hard to break through amidst these habits? Do you these habits limit your earning power? These habits stop you from becoming financially free? These habits impact your thinking pattern to think big? These thoughts leave you in debt and you don’t know how to manage these debt issues or even settle them? These thinking pattern makes you work hard for money without thinking of adding value to yourself? With questions, you will know how your thoughts can make you rich or poor and where you inherit your thought pattern from. We must know that reprogramming our thought pattern from thinking small and trivial things to big things is our road to financial freedom.

PROCRASTINATION

Procrastination holds you back and pulls you down from moving forward in your life. It’s the act of putting off till later time. It’s when you delay what you ought to do now. When certain factors within your control make you hold-down what you ought to do to achieve your desired result or move your life forward.
You plan to start working on that ideas but you keep deferring it. You plan to start working on that product or services you want to offer that will make your life better but you keep deferring it? You plan to save, invest or start a side hustle to become financially free but you keep deferring it ? Why? You keep postponing it to do it later and forget that time flies and with time, that particular project or vision die because you keep deferring it for worthless reasons that are aimless.
In the midst of this procrastination, comes worthless and valueless excuses that are valid to you. For example, telling yourself you will save later once you are done paying your debt which you never do as more expenses surfaces, you have long list of expenses that your salary is too small for you to save, you need to enjoy your life now because it’s too short and you will save later once you are ready, you will buy into that stocks, bond or mutual funds later, you need to resolve an issue now. You can’t start that business now or you can’t do this or that now for one invalid reason or the other.

NEGATIVE THINKING

Negative thinking hinders a lot of things and stagnate you and tire you down. You never see anything good in anything. Everything is bad and nothing makes sense when are a negative thinker nothing ever work. you can end of failing in everything you do because nothing good comes out of it. everything is see is only now and you never see the future. The future is entirely bleak to you. there are 80% chances that events and people around you mean or yield nothing good to you. These thoughts come easily or with life experience which puts you in bad shape and destabilizes you and stop you from ever producing any good ideas and also expecting the worst case scenarios which introduces disappointment, pessimism, depression, overthinking, find fault in people, failure, mediocrity and a few.
With negative thinking you can’t achieve your goals and everything about goal setting is negative and your thoughts are small and limited and you don’t see far and beyond. This negative thinking affects your health, state of mind and the way you relate with people around you. With these thoughts, you attract the same set of people who see nothing good in thinking big.
These thoughts drain our energy in every area of your life and that’s why nothing good seem to come out of you. It prevents you seeing things that are possible to do now and in the future and makes you tired of life most times.
A friend once told me he can never ever buy into any investment because his father once did and lose and all his money which led to his father’s death so he can never let anything lead into buying into investment. He expresses his negative thought anytime you talk about investment.
These are what negative thoughts do, you never see anything good truly

PROBLEMS

Worthless and minor problems keep distracting you from thinking big and they don’t allow you to see the bigger picture. These problems take your time and saps your energy and you lost focus to think big or even chase that big dream. These problems preoccupy you and in your heart becomes bigger problem that can’t be solved and it keeps dragging your attention away from good and positive things.

FRIENDS/FAMILIES

In my past post, (9 WAYS TO INVEST IN YOURSELF; WAYS TO CHANGE YOUR MINDSET ABOUT MONEY) i talked about the impact of friends and families in your growth and habits about money and these set of people go a long way to being a success in life and to getting to that great height in life. Their words which is as a result of their habit formed their decision and this creates their point of view in life which also impacts you and hinder you from thinking big or even ever having goals or chasing anyone. They either support you or destroy you. Your big thought will change lives and destiny and not everyone will see it the way you do. This people will criticize and almost destroy your big dreams with their condemnation because 80%-90% never had one and never believed in one and if not careful that goals die and you live an aimless life like them too
Where you are currently, is a function of the company you keep and where you will also be tomorrow. If you want to be successful, productive and efficient to a level, the company you keep has a part to play.
The right set of friends possess the attributes that leads you to your desired destination. These friends/families have no right network that can influence any area of your life.
Your improvement is built on the right friends you keep and they influence your choice and decision-making most times and help connect with others that can help.
Making friends and hanging out with these set of people can make you tend to poverty and scarcity and no big dreams.
For example; hanging with these sets of friends can’t make you save money, they will talk more about financial challenges and with time you have more financial problems. They will tell you buying into investments is bad. Giving you reasonable points or tells you about all the negative parts of starting a business and the challenges and how it can pack up in one year.
It’s time to review your friends and watch where your advice come from and what they say to you.

FEAR

Fear has crippled and hinder a lot us from thinking big it affects our being a success or failure. This fear has destroyed lives and destiny. A lot of people could not go into that business because the fear of losses, the fear of the business closing down in less than two years, the fear of the known and unknown, giving power to your thoughts to feed you with more of the bad part than the good it has to offer you. The fear cripples your mind with valid reasons not to invest and as you keep procrastinating the vision to dream big and become financially free dies. For every step, you want to take to achieve that big dream this fear comes in with better reasons not to venture into and it breaks you down and you accept your status quo. Your decision-making
it hinders our every steps, thoughts and action. Your decision-making experiences the challenges of fear because of the negative advices from friends and families and the negative thoughts that preoccupy your mind.

TIME

Big thinking requires time and commitment to achieve your dreams. Time to plan it out and how to go about it and what to do, who to talk to, advice and decisions to make. But if the time is not there, failure will surely surface. If no time to acquire the knowledge about the business or investment you want to buy into, the chances are high that you might likely fail. The time is a vital key to thinking big if the time is not there to think, meditate, plan and acquire the knowledge for that big dreams you are ending

CONCLUSION

There are many more factors not included and you might even know more but these are vital factors that are limits you from thinking big. Will you break or fight these limitations? Will you let your life remain the same? Will you continue to live from paycheck to paycheck? It’s time to think and meditate and break this barriers that have held you down from start that business, buying into that investment or running after that project. You can tell about your personal limitations from thinking big and did you break forth from anyone and how you did it.

THINK BIG

I want to say a big thank you to ENELE OGAH, Roses of Life for nomination me for LIEBSTER AWARD
You can view her blog here: Cerielss.wordpress.com

liebster

We live in a limitless world of possibilities, if only we open our mind to it and believe and act on it. But why do we restrict ourselves? Why do we place embargo on our thoughts? Why are we where we really are? Why can’t we achieve great things? Why is everything around us limited, small and scarce? How do we really think? How is our thinking pattern like? Do you know you are the source of limiting factors in your life? How do you dream and what do you really visualize about? What are your aspirations? What do you really dream about? Do you dream big or small? Do you think of abundance or scarcity? Do you have a heart of thanksgiving or blame everything around you? Do you know you can have a dream and make it a reality? Do you know if you are courageous about your dream it brings out the greatness, influence and exceptionality in you?
Do you know that one key difference between the rich and the poor begins with how they think? What they think about? And what they do with their thoughts? Do you know these thoughts forms IDEAS that become a game changer for them? Do you know the thoughts of the poor degenerate them and drag them backwards leaving them in stagnancy and always short of ideas that brings about the scarcity and lack in their lives?
Do you know these thoughts could cause self-limiting beliefs and limits you from earning, saving and investing your way to financial freedom and introduce hardship and poverty to your life? These thoughts determine if you will remain rich or poor. Do you know thinking small can lead to limitations and financial struggle? Meaning you are narrow-minded and limited in thoughts and actions, you can’t see afar off.
Thoughts are created in the mind which arise from a way or pattern of thinking.
As time flies, these thoughts develop into ways of thinking big that eventually overwhelms the person and moves them towards turning this thoughts into goals and making that the goal a reality. It involves leaving your old personality for your new self to achieve these big dreams. To think big, you must put barriers and challenges aside because they are inevitable. Meaning you must be prepared for them and must be overcome to step up to the next level and you must be determined to make your formed thoughts a reality.

think big 3

This thoughts experiences challenges, analysis and condemnation in all ways but when you stand against all odds it becomes big and a reality.
If you have an IDEA or TALENT, you are indebted to yourself to make it a reality. Why settle for less, why live in scarcity than the full potential of what you can do with it? Why limit your world where the world has endless possibilities and abundance?
To think big, you need to have visions, you need to see it from the positive side of life. To think big, you need to be courageous, determined, patience and ready to persevere.
If what you have in mind is at all worth doing, then people will doubt, condemn and give you more reasons that dream of yours can’t be a reality.

think big 4

People will make you see why you can’t become financially free, why you can’t build that business and why you can’t think big and why you don’t even deserve it.
when you have a strong vision, the courage takes care of itself. The courage and perseverance see you through the tough times or else you will drop by the way side and lose all you have been struggling to build. When you can see, hear, and feel your vision, then you simply should pursue it, however insane it might seem to others.
If your entire day is all about this vision, it makes your heartbeat every seconds and all you see around you is this big dreams and you believe it will turn your world around and will make become financial free, impacting people’s lives, you need to go after it with all you have in you to make it a dream come through.

8 WAYS TO CHANGE YOUR MONEY HABIT

 

20171130_221425

1. BE AWARE OF YOUR FINANCIAL STATUS.
When you look at your savings and accumulated debts you tend to look at them as forces controlling you. You look at it as totally impossible and difficult. You realize that you don’t pay yourself, you live paycheck to paycheck and always in debt and you are entirely confused about the whole thing. You can’t even give your life a direction financially and its affecting other areas of your life even causing you stress.
Instead of blaming yourself or others for the financial mistakes you have made, you can sit down and review where all the errors occurred and start reprogramming yourself for wealth creation. Look at where the lapses are, your expenses, debt, how you accumulated them and what to do to cut down this debt and expenses. How you need to cut down excesses and where you need to do that. How to pay off your debt in bits so it does not affect you financially. How to stop and block the excesses and delay gratification to achieve your financial goals. Being financially aware of where you are is the starting point and also the path to the next phase.
2. HABITS.
Your habits are either from your environment, family and friends. Think back to the past about the way your parents manage their finance and settling bills and they reacted to money issues and how they managed monetary. You will notice worry, anger, aggressiveness, fighting and others. How did it affect you? What did you learn? How hard did your parents work for their money and did they ever have the time? Is their money working for them? Were they always in debt and How did they manage their debt issues? With these reasonable questions, you will know where your inherited money habit and ideologies are from.
We must let go of the past and reproduce our future by reprogramming the habits and thinking pattern. Change the way you think about money. Change your beliefs of scarcity to abundance, from money grows on trees to how to how to create money. From working extremely hard for money to smart work and making money work for you while you are relaxed.

 

3. SET FINANCIAL GOALS
Once you realize you are managing your finance based on inherited habits you need to change the habits and adopt new ones. If you don’t change the habits you will struggle financially and your woes will continue. You will experience yourself retrogressing financially and stagnancy.
Change your beliefs and set money goals, create budget, knowing what is coming in and going out and how to save more money and free yourself from the bondage of paycheck to paycheck and start paying yourself and be free and live without worry.
4- OVERCOME YOUR FEARS
Fear makes us live within our hereditary habits and be contented with it and where we are financially and live paycheck to paycheck. It keeps us between our limited beliefs and makes you accept your status-quo and beliefs nothing works. We are often faced with fears when opportunities to move to another level shows up. It surfaces with questions that enslaves and limits us and stops us from going after the opportunities which stagnates us. We see all the bad sides of the opportunities than the good we can enjoy and how it will change our lives. Fear keeps you from having good financial plan and goals giving us reasons they are worthless and limits you from making more money. Fear leaves you broke and struggling financially but you must be bold enough to take steps that liberate you from your limitation and become financially free.
5– START THINKING OF CREATING MONEY.
You are responsible for your financial breakthrough. To start making more money, DECISION MAKING and COMMITMENT are very key to the next phase of your financial growth Think of abundance, more will come to you and you open the door to endless possibilities and attracting positive things to yourself. You must think of how to start side hustle and know more about it. Have good knowledge of investing and what to invest into and how to make money work for you.
6- SKILLS ACQUISITION TO MAKE MORE MONEY.
Once you decide to start make more money, your mind opens to abundance and opportunities will surface. And chance to acquire new skills and grow and improve yourself to make more money surfaces too and you need to take quick actions. Spend more time on improving and growing your skills and block all loopholes and know everything you need to know about it and how to innovate and be creative and monetize it and make more money.

 

7-MAKE THE RIGHT FRIENDS
Where you are currently, is a function of the company you keep and where you will also be tomorrow. If you want to be successful, productive and efficient to a level, the company you keep has a part to play. make friends with people who possess the attributes that leads you to your desired destination. If you currently have friends who do not conform to your goals, get rid of them, or, at the very least, greatly reduce the amount of time you spend with them. It’s time you keep the right company that helps you grow in most areas of your life and support your goals. Networking with the right set of people can influence your promotion at work, get a new job, support and give you ideas for your side hustle.
Your improvement is built on the right friends you keep and they influence your choice and decision making most times.
Spending and keeping company with them helps you a lot in most part of your life and help you achieve your desired goal earlier than planned.
Make friends with the rich and hang- out with them. When you hang out with the rich you begin to believe that its possible to grow rich by changing your thoughts and erasing limiting beliefs and your words begin to change.
8– A HEART OF THANKSGIVING
Appreciate the little you have, you will have more. Be thankful of what you have and the right people in your life, it attracts more blessings. Be thankful for sound health, safety, being alive and that which you expect. Being thankful open the doors of opportunity and abundance.

CHANGE YOUR MINDSET ABOUT MONEY

I want to thank @Imochoa488 for nominating me for BLOGGERS RECOGNITION AWARD

Our mind determines our destination and impact most area of their lives.  Your mindset about money is very vital. It’s your thought pattern and attitude about money. This mindset determines how you manage and spend money and your relationship with others about money too.

This way of thinking did not just evolve from the atmosphere or come from nowhere it’s a thinking pattern generated over time that evolves into a habit that impacts your decision making. 

This pattern determines what you spend your money on, what you think about money like saying “money is scarce and hard to get”, am I plucking money from tree? “and a few other mindsets. 

We grow up with this mindset about money from our childhood and take it into marital lives and you keep thinking the same thought pattern. You attract the same set of people with the same mindset, you all talk the same way and live in the same environment and share the same mindset too and pass this same notion to your children and your spouse might likely have this same mindset too and everything around revolves with the same pattern, that is scarcity mindset.

Out of your mind cometh the things of your life. These things of your life can determine how your life becomes because as you think so are you in all area of your life. These patterns of mindset attract everything and even your set of friends into your life. The rich will network with each other all the time to keep a healthy mindset and lifestyle so do the poor and so with career people. 

Most people are not aware that they have been programmed their entire life to interact with money in a very particular way. Being programmed in this thinking pattern made your life experience stunted growth and everything seems to be hard and you believe you need to work hard for your money and you don’t know you need to make your money work for you by saving and investing them. And by investing your money, its making your money work hard for you while your mind is at rest which is also paying you for your work too.

This mindset impacts your IMPULSIVE SPENDING, DEBT, FINANCIAL WOES and a few others but you are never aware of it. You just jump out of bed every morning rush to work and back to bed at night, living paycheck to paycheck and continue to struggle and it’s as if you are blind to the world.

Its time you sit down and analyze yourself and know what is wrong financially and know if you will have to continue with this mindset and struggle from hand to mouth or you need to bring a drastic change to your finance that will transform your financial woes and impact your next generation.

Where did this programmed mindset come from? How did you come about it? How did you acquire it? How did this pattern creep into my mind and control your decisions and become habits?

You acquired it from grand-parents, parents, friends, family, schools, environment and so forth. Check out your parents and find out how they react to money and their belief systems about money. When you visit your friends how do their parents also react to the issue of money. Find out what your friends belief about money and how they manage money? What did people around you in school too belief about money? They know or say nothing about money but just spend it as it comes and no plans for savings or investing or even thinking of paying themselves Check out their environment and you realize that the higher percentage have the same thought pattern. This actions and reactions form your ideas and leads to habits which form your decision in every area of your life and that’s why you struggle financially.

This programmed pattern brings fear, anger, aggressiveness, self-limiting beliefs, negativity in most area of your lives, struggling to achieve anything, paycheck to paycheck, you need to work harder instead of working smarter and even hardship.

But becoming aware and reprogramming yourself and thought pattern can show enormously in most areas of your life. You must change the words you say and choose your words wise and think about where you get your advice from which also affects your mindset. It will reprogramme your mindset and every area of your live will experience reprogramming.  if you want to be financially secure, you must control your thoughts and beliefs and change your network .

You should change your beliefs about money and change the programming on your mind about money. For financial freedom, you need to free yourself from your inherited habits and create new habits that allows you to create money.

HOW DO I SAVE TO INVEST?

 

 I want to thank  @Verskil for nominating me for SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD of the month. Thanks a lot once again Jennifer Osuji.

If you are saving, it should be for the short-term to achieve your goals and for a long-term goal, you should be willing to take risk by investing which is making your money work hard for you to become financially free.
If you need help, you can visit asset management houses, financial advisers who will give you advise on what to invest on.
Once you have saved enough, invest part of savings in assets that will appreciate like MUTUAL FUNDS, STOCK, BOND and COMMODITIES. To invest in stocks is to invest in businesses that you cannot manage yourself but by people who own shares in businesses that they built and gives your money value over time.
Diversify your investments to control the risks and buy into Investments that gives compounding interest that grows with time for your long-term goals.

20171117_083515

The difference between an INVESTOR and SAVER is that an INVESTOR is someone who takes the money they save and puts it to use buying assets like stocks, Treasury bills, mutual funds and bonds that makes them grow rich and create another stream of income for them while a SAVER puts money in the bank with very little interest for the sake of being secured.
Stocks, mutual funds, Treasury- bills and bond are extremely enticing long-term investments which have a level of risk but they can be unsteady and exposed to short-term fluctuations in value but requires a long-term dedication to give the expected growth. Being rich is not the money one gathers by saving, but the money one put to ACTION.

Saving money portrays money in the bank that does no work and loses value with time. If your money is made stagnant it’s not an asset but liability. Saving is a good habit, but without investing, it stagnates. Being a saver takes discipline, patience and commitment but you take step further to take risk which is the path to being rich.

SAVE TO INVEST

save to invest 3

Developing a habit of saving is the road to financial freedom and that’s undeniable. Saving helps you live below your means, free you from paycheck to paycheck lifestyle and also grow in confidence. Saving is a path to achieving a lot of goals and even start your side hustle. Saving ought to add to a good amount of money you use for investing. You can’t make more money by saving alone. When you live below your means even unexpected expenses surfaces affecting you financially most times but when you create another source of income the impact won’t be that much.
When you save without putting the money into an investment to make it work for you, the saving will not yield return and it leads to an average life. The way out of average life is to increase your source of income. To be financially free, you can’t depend on saving alone but have multiple source of income. To make more money, you put it to action which leads to a life of financial freedom. When you transform your saving to investments, your money makes sense and you grow rich and you will worry less financially and think of how to think of more source of income.
Think of saving as setting money aside and preserving your money in a secured place where you can get it to achieve your short-term goal; the one you achieve in less than four years. The money you save earn low interest and rates on money saved is low but the fact is that your money is secured and you won’t have to worry about any market fluctuations or even emotions like fear of losing your money grip you.

 

save to invest 2

A long-term financial goal requires more money, you invest with the desire that over time the money you set aside will grow by making more money for you and reinvesting the interest paid to make more money for you.
Saving and investing work together with risk: the more you want your money to grow, the more risk you will have to take. And because investing tends to be a long-term process, some investments makes it a little hard to speedily withdraw the money you’ve put into them. The fact is that your returns will be higher compare to just saving alone.
The saver’s money in a bank has an interest 1% or little more and if attacked by inflation, with time your money loses its value. And if left longer time, your money loses its value by the forces of inflation. Why would you settle for an investment paying less than 1%when a very similar investment is paying more than 7% and above? Why not take that bold step and go for the one with a higher investment that makes you worry less about money?
Why not take the risk that will liberate you from the rat-race and become financially empowered? Why not take time to think of the value of money saved in the bank? What impact does it have living the money there for too long and inflation keeps eating deep into in it? Do you know #100,000 saved in the bank is not the same in 5-10years time? Because it’s either an ASSET or a LIABILITY. It’s an ASSET when put to work but a LIABILITY when left to stagnate in your account doing nothing.
When you invest, you use your money to buy an asset that will generate a certain return as time goes by and when you sell your asset at a higher price, you make more money for yourself.

It’s about making yourself feel you can spend less and pay yourself more. With time, you adapt to this new habit and get used to this new pattern and breaking away from an inherited old that makes you worry most times financially.

WHY YOU REALLY NEED TO SAVE?

save money1

SAVING is the percentage of your income or money you set aside for future purpose in place of squandering it.

Saving has a vital role to play if you want to be financially secure but people find it hard to set money aside monthly. You can be a good saver by reducing your expenses and setting a plan in place to save for the future.

PAYING YOURSELF FIRST is a way to save money and it’s still the best way to save money. Setting a certain percentage of your earning aside which can be between 10-30 percent or even more depending on how you control your expenses. you’re saving for yourself and your future goals before spending the rest on expenses. Doing this seems tough but it’s easy when you put your mind to it. Only when your mind is focused on a particular goal and you take the necessary action that’s when you can achieve it. Anybody can pay his or herself a certain percentage of a his or her earning if the person is unyielding and ready to leave the rat race. When you pay yourself by saving a certain percentage which grows over time, it gives you a level of confidence that you have something to fall back on and you are taking a step of stepping out of the constraint   of paycheck to paycheck.

The only way to grow your wealth is to make saving and spending less your habit and that’s one of the key points that distinguish between the poor and the rich.  When you save, what’s the aim of your saving and paying yourself for? Is to buy assets or liability? Is it to plan for project, invest? Is it to plan for retirement? “Are you planning   on saving for Impulsive buying that don’t add value to you? Your saving is what you do to achieve certain goals in your life and if it’s not achieving the sets goals it’s no more saving but sowing and not reaping. It’s like planting a seed that dies with time because it’s not been watered. When its watered it achieve its aim by growing.

save money 2

When you live a life style of debt you are living from paycheck to paycheck with no documentation of where your money goes. When your money is not well managed its fades away or either develop wings and vanishes to who knows how to manage it and you have yourself to answer for it as time passes.

It can be very tempting to purchase something impulsively you want today rather than saving up for it and paying cash for it later. Delaying an impulse buying also helps you decide whether it is something you really need, or a waste of money. Denying yourself of those things to plan, live an organized and financially free life pays a lot later in the future.

Money used to purchase to any asset where there is an element of great investment will make you happy and fulfilled with time. Most times, the investment can be risky or even cause losses but when it bounces back most times the return on investment is huge and it pays off. Shift your thinking from living paycheck to paycheck to start saving and planning your finance to achieve financial freedom and plan with the saving to make it an ASSET and thank yourself later for a life of financial fulfillment and freedom.
