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.
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.
