In this episode, I talk about what doesn’t really get talked about as much when it comes to good money management and living a financially free life.
Conventional ideas about being good with money focuses on how to cut your spending or stick to a budget. These operate from what’s called a ‘scarcity’ approach - the idea that money will ‘run out’. Even investing and saving stems from this fear that if we don’t invest and save, we won’t have enough for later because we’ll run out.
While having healthy money habits such as not being reckless with our spending is important, what we can do more of is to also pay attention to how we can make more, because there’s only so much you can save and cut.
The first step to making more is to master ourselves, particularly our mindset about how we see our own value. Without recognizing your own value, how are you ever going to convince and demonstrate to others your value to them, so that they will pay you more?
Embracing a more abundant perspective to your life and yourself is how you can start to acknowledge your own inherent value and look at how you can continuously grow to increase your value to others and ultimately, make more.
