February is love month. A time to celebrating the love of your spouse, partner, children, parents, pets, friends, or whoever you desire. But what about celebrating the love of money? Yes, I said it “Love of Money”. You have probably heard the phrase “that the love of money is the root of evil,” but that is not the kind of love that I am talking about. What I would like for you to think about is your relationship with money. How is it? We often ask our clients if money were your lover, how would you describe your relationship? Are you lonely? Are you happy? Is your lover attentive do you feel them close by and there when you need them most? How do you treat your lover? Are you kind and respectful?
So I ask you during this month of love. How is your relationship with money and does it need some improvement? Your relationship with money should not be difficult, it should come easily. You should not have to worry about being cheated or if it is coming home. Your relationship with money should be loving and it requires give and take. Do you stress about money or find it difficult to attract enough money on a monthly basis? If you answered yes to this do not worry you are not alone and there is an easy way to change this. It is all about perception and mindset. During your first years of life many of your behaviors and mindsets were developed and they are probably affecting you today, either consciously or unconsciously.
What you need to do is start being aware of any thoughts or beliefs that come up
when dealing with money. Keep track, write them in a journal because until you are aware of your thoughts and unconscious behaviors and beliefs, you cannot change them. So think about yesterday
for instance. How many times did you think about money? What were your thoughts, were they positive? Were they happy thoughts and thoughts of gratitude? If you can answer yes you are of the minority as many of us think thoughts like this on a daily basis. “I am broke. When will I start to make what I deserve? Why don’t I have any money? Where did all my money go?“ Once you are aware of
the negative thoughts that you have with your money relationship, you can begin to change. Here are a few tips to start the change. When you check your bank accounts give gratitude for what you do have. When someone pays you, give thanks. When you pay a bill, give thanks because you had enough money
to pay that bill. When you bring money in be sure to give 10 percent away, you will not believe what this
will do for your relationship. With this love month upon us I truly encourage you to create a change and enjoy your relationship with money. You will not believe what will come when you are your money are in sync.
