Courage to Dream. Money.
Financial freedom means having the courage to take control of your finances and effectively manage your money. And having the courage to dream big dreams is an Esteemable Act.
Set Your Intention.
So how do you get from seeing yourself as one of the have-nots to one of the haves? First, you set your intention – that is, you create a dream of where you want to be financially in one year, in five years, in ten years, and in twenty years. It can be scary to contemplate something you don’t think you’ll ever have, especially if you are laden with debt. But go ahead and do it. Stretch yourself. Flex your mind. Take the risk to dream a big financial dream. Then, we’ll figure out how to make it happen.
Create Visual Support.
The next step is to create visual support for your financial dream. These are tangible reminders of your financial goals. For example, you might consider creating affirmations or colorful 3 x 5 index cards or construction paper and strategically place them throughout your home, office, and car. Or perhaps your might customize your computer screensaver with a description of your financial goal or a positive statement, affirming where you see yourself. For example, if your goal is to be debt-free possible affirmations might include:
- I am debt free
- I am living a life of perfect financial freedom, emancipated from all debt
- I effectively manage my finances
- I have everything I need
- I have abundance consciousness
Other visual reminders might be a collage with images and symbols of your financial goal. As you move in, around and throughout your life, be open to additional symbols that can and will support your dream.
Again, remember, the better you manage your finances, the better managed your life will be.
