Wealth is a state of mind and you can experience it right now! Quite simply how you think creates the actions you take, which in turn shows up in the results that you get in your life.
To be a financially successful woman you need to think and act like one now! This means going beyond the fear factor, the excuses and the doubts you may have, so that you don’t miss opportunities to attract and retain more money.
And as well as having the confidence and capability to manage your money, you also need the plans, systems and resources in place to position yourself for the future.
Here are just some of the mindset qualities of the financially savvy…..
Think big – They have a BIG vision, have a plan for getting there and then work that plan consistently.
Persistent and not afraid of challenges – They know that it requires time and persistence to achieve their money goals. They also know that that the route to success is often strewn with obstacles and challenges along the way and they are not afraid to address these.
Prepared to get out of the comfort zone and take risks – Are there any areas in your business or life where you are staying small and safe? You will become stuck unless you stretch yourself on a regular basis and move beyond the fear factor of dealing with important issues such as pensions, savings and investments.
Not afraid to make mistakes – Everyone makes mistakes in life and business! It’s worth remembering that many of us suffer from rejections, knock backs, let downs and disappointments. This can be hard for those of us who are perfectionists and don’t like getting things wrong! But learning to excel in managing your money often comes through learning from mistakes and failures. Take heart from Michael Jordan, the famous basket ball player who admitted, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed”.
Value themselves – By continually educating themselves, financially savvy women stay ahead. They value what they have and are quick to put what they learn into practice.
Want to understand money and finances – They take responsibility for their money and make money work for them. They are not afraid of investing and reinvest in themselves. As a result they become excellent money managers
Not afraid to ask for help – They find the right advisors or mentors to act as trusted guides, knowing this is the fastest route to making the most of their money.
One final tip, actively seek out and surround yourself with others who are successful, positive and earning what you want to earn – whether this is through people you know, attending seminars or reading biographies. You will soon find out how financially successful people think and act. By learning from them you can model and adapt what works for you.
