Advice time people. I saw this in the clickbait news.com.au and I thought it might be good to start another 'advice' thread about Mindset. Quite good advice here but I'm sure there's more to consider. I remember the first 'lightbulb' moment when I realised that I always seemed to need $300 and somehow it had turned into needing $3000 to get to the baseline. Duh! I also see there are thousands and thousands of followers for the Barefoot Investor. Similar mindset required. 1. Step one is to be aware of your choices, especially those related to money. If you are making negative choices about your money circumstances, such as spending more than you earn, chasing quick wins or get rich quick schemes, then this first step of awareness is crucial. 2. The second step is understanding which is about identifying where your decision making originates. It allows you to recognise that these choices have likely come from outside of you, from external influences, such as your parents and how they managed money. Spend some time to understand the impact your choices have had on your money circumstances in the past before moving to the next step. 3. Step 3 is disassociation. Once you recognise that your previous way of choosing is not serving you, you can separate yourself from these choices and decide to let them go. You can observe that this way of choosing is just a file of information that has been stored in your mind for a long time now, and no longer holds any truth or value for you and your financial circumstances. You now realise that you have a choice to be different, to choose different actions with money that empower your success. That’s uplifting isn’t it? 4. Step 4 is reconditioning which is about training your mind to respond in a supportive manner when it comes to money and success. Although I am proposing you complete this process for your money circumstances, you can do this for any aspect of your life.
