Losing sleep about your finances? Wondering how you’re going to cope?
Losing sleep over your finances? Well, I’d like to start by reassuring you. Things CAN and WILL get better for you.
Sometimes you read a massage by chance, but it’s the exact message that you need to hear right now. This is one of those messages.
What do I know about you?
I know that you have done your best over the years, and have made the best decisions you can, given what you knew at the time.
I also know that you deserve better in life.
And you can have it. You can have it all. Great wealth. More time. Fabulous relationships. Fun times with people you love.
It starts with a thought. A wish. A goal. An intention.
That intention turns into a strategy. A roadmap. A plan.
That plan turns into actions. Behaviours and words. Conversations.
That activity produces the results that, over time, can totally transform your life, in ways you could not possibly imagine.
My mum was working in a clothes factory, but she wanted to spend more time with her children. So she had an idea to start a guest house so that she could work and spend time with her kids. And, bam! She turned out to be a superb businesswoman and made the whole thing work – and she turned her life around, financially as well as personally.
So, it all starts with a thought. A desire. An intention.
How do you know what intention to have?
It’s time to get quiet. Go inwards. Listen carefully. What does your heart tell you to do? The heart is the truest measure of the direction you need to go in. When you listen carefully and follow your heart’s guidance, you will discover a life that’s perfectly right for you.
And, once you’ve chosen your ideal direction, then make plans to make it happen. If the decision is about a new career and you are currently working full time, you may need to start retraining in your spare time. Or you may be wanting to set up a business, beginning in the evenings, until it is established.
One thing that will be needed, no matter what change of direction is sought, is finances, so make it a priority to focus on getting your money working for you. With extra income coming in from your investments and other assets, the pressure is off you exchanging hours for money.
With focus and concerted effort, your investments can eventually pay for all of your living expenses. And it’s at that point that you find true freedom. That’s when you’re free to do your best work, for love rather than just money. To be creative just for the fun of it. To explore. To find yourself. To grow.
So, start where you are. And begin with a thought. And a goal. And a set of actions. Then move forwards towards that goal. And don’t ever look back.
