If you’ve tried to change your money mindset to no avail, you could be making one of many common mistakes.
Like any habit, developing a positive money mindset takes time and persistence. You will slip up along the way, it’s expected. However, if you find yourself slipping up frequently, it’s important to look at the mistakes you could be making.
Here, you’ll discover some of the most common mistakes you could be making that are jeopardizing your money mindset.
Playing it safe
When you’re worried about money, it’s easy to play it safe. What if you invest in something and it doesn’t pay off? For example, you want to grow your business, but you’re worried putting more money into it will be a waste in case it goes wrong.
Playing it safe may allow you to hold onto the money you have. However, it’s not going to help you achieve more money. The most successful people out there are those who know when to take risks. So, if you want to become more financially healthy, you’re going to need to stop playing it safe.
Failing to track your returns
Whenever you spend money, you’re making an investment. If you pay for a meal out, your return is food. If you’re paying for an online learning course, your return is knowledge. Absolutely everything you spend money on is giving you some form of return. The key is to ensure you’re getting the right returns.
Failing to track your returns is going to jeopardize your money mindset. You need to know exactly what you’re spending and the benefits it delivers. That way, you can cut out any spending which isn’t delivering good returns.
Giving in to negative thinking
It’s impossible to think positively all the time. However, if you find you frequently give in to negative thinking, that’s something you’ll want to address.
The more negatively you view your financials, the more negative experiences you’re going to have. So, you need to learn to switch those negative thoughts into positive ones.
Relying on good karma
A very common mistake which could be damaging your money mindset is relying on karma. That is, expecting the universe to provide for you.
You need to ensure you’re putting in the work, rather than just depending upon good vibes. In order to become financially wealthy, you need to be willing to put in a lot of hard work. You’re also going to need persistence.
There’s going to be times where you feel like giving up. Developing a positive money mindset doesn’t happen overnight. It takes work, dedication and commitment. It’s about pushing through even when you do feel like giving up. If you want something in the universe, you need to be willing to work hard for it.
Attaching money to emotions
Finally, another mistake which could be jeopardizing your money mindset is your emotions. More specifically, attaching money to emotions is extremely damaging to your money mindset.
If you spend money in order to satisfy certain emotions, you’re never going to achieve financial freedom. Money isn’t an emotion, it’s a tool. The less you tie your finances to your emotions, the less power it’s going to have over you.
There are a lot of mistakes you can make when developing a healthy money mindset. The above are just some of the most common mistakes to avoid. If you find you’re making more than one of the mistakes above, it’s important to focus on changing just one habit at a time. If you try to combat multiple mistakes at the same time, it’s going to be extremely difficult.
