Hello Romantic!

The essence of the Romantic is as an Inner Hedonist

The strengths you can rely on as a Romantic when you are at your best will typically be:

    • Luxuriousness
    • Abundance
    • Pleasure-seeking

Your strengths can show up as the following gifts:

    • Believing there will always be more
    • Being generous with others
    • Enjoying the things that money can buy

But for all archetypes, if you carry your strengths and gifts to an extreme, there will be challenges.

A Romantic who takes their strengths to an extreme may well exhibit the following:

    • Flamboyant spending
    • Ignoring or avoiding anything to do with finances
    • Spending to mask feeling undeserving, unappreciated or unloved

What you can do to make the most of your strengths and talents and avoid the challenges:

Yes, life is to be enjoyed but not if the expense of it distracts you from creating wholeness and self-worth from inside out.

The challenge for the Romantic is to avoid creating a feast or famine lifestyle, as these wildly different emotions don’t give them the ultimate of what they want in life, which is pleasure and enjoyment

Focus your considerable energy on creating meaning and worth in your life, beyond which money can’t buy. 

Creating a more secure financial future will help you feel as if you’re having it all.

Some questions for you to consider:

What are 8 ways you could enjoy the perfect day, without spending any money?

What are 3 things you could tell yourself that would make saving 6 months of living expenses motivating?

What is the underlying source and emotional need triggering the statement of “I deserve it”?

The aim is always to use your gifts and talents but without tipping over to an extreme. Therefore, I’m going to leave you with the following empowering mindset:

Creating and embarking a secure financial future is a way I can always enjoy the best of life.
