#2 - Your Brain and Your Financial Future
#1 - Money Beliefs
So, spoiler alert – your financial future will look a lot like your present if you don’t start making some changes. That’s cool if your present is awesome, but it’s probably discouraging to hear if your present isn’t as great as you’d like it to be.
The good news is: your future can be whatever you want it to be (within reason). I’m not saying its going to be raining money all day and you can flip off your boss and spend 6 months in Tahiti. But you can make some basic changes now to ensure that your financial future looks how you want it to look.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of why we do the things we do. We have these beliefs about ourselves and our finances. We think them over and over again until we consider them to be truths. We don’t accept that anyone else could view money in any other way. Why? Because our belief is TRUTH. Our belief is the only way it could be. That thought we have about money, it then determines our financial results. We do all of these things because of something we believe to be true about money, good or bad. We will talk A LOT about this concept as the podcast unfolds: your beliefs around money are the reason you are where you are right now financially.
