When I do earn it I spend it as fast as it comes in, any suggestions for getting unstuck with money?
Does not having enough money make you feel like you’re stuck in place?
“Many people tend to get stuck in a rut when it comes to money.” Leisa Peterson of WealthClinic adds, “This happens for lots of different reasons including the substantial amount of fear connected to money and the concept of lack and scarcity. If deep inside you believe there is a limited amount of money (and resources) in the world then you are going to be fearful about being able to get enough. Shifting out of lack and scarcity requires a great deal of mindfulness towards your experiences with money. By getting to know yourself and how you behave with money, you can become more self-aware which is the first step in changing anything in life.”
Leisa states that, “Asking yourself questions about how you approach money topics is a great place to start.”
Ask the following questions:
- Do you avoid it or defer to others for your money decisions? Do you hoard it?
- Do you feel tension in your body whenever you focus on money?
- Do you make a lot of sacrifices in pursuit of it?
