Every once in a while, everyone wants to make a major life improvement. That longing for change can be created by many things: bad health, bad relationships, bad jobs, or bad money habits. I use the term “bad” loosely, because even mildly bothersome aspects of life can drive people to seek big changes, especially in finance.
I believe that what we think has a lot to do with what becomes reality. When I’ve tried to lose weight, just making an effort to think about losing weight caused me to be more conscious of what I was eating and how much I was working out. The same goes for money. When I’m thinking about being better with money, I find myself being better with money. The power of thought itself in creating change is invaluable.
