Day 7 : One week of the money mindset

If you’ve chosen to take this course, you probably recognize a few familiar traits in the deficit money mindset. Are you sometimes averse to money? Do you dread dealing with your financial matters and feel like you simply don’t have the knack for it?

The first step is done

That wasn’t so bad after all. The key to a powerful money mindset is having the self-awareness to know that some of this – or perhaps all of it – applies to you. That’s why you dealt with your past a lot throughout this course. Maybe you have become aware of some negative attitude or another that has caused you to stand in your own way up until now. With that, you’ve taken the first step.

You first used your memories to find a point of entry into your thoughts about money. What memories come up when you think about your first encounters with money? And how did this relationship develop? How do you feel about that today?

Thoughts, feelings, emotions

You zeroed in on your feelings and emotions through your thoughts. A substantial portion of our feelings runs on a subconscious level. The emotions, the underlying sentiments that come from an evolutionarily ancient part of the brain, are on in the background, unnoticed, like some sort of background noise. Yet they influence our decisions, even in the context of financial matters.

The most important emotions and feelings associated with money are fear, guilt, shame, and jealousy. They are strong and sometimes debilitating drivers of all kinds of reactions. You went on the hunt to uncover your personal drivers using different approaches and exercises.

Part of the money mindset: convictions

With this new understanding, you can now get dedicated to transforming your money mindset. Focus, language, and your body are tools you now have in your toolbox to help yourself. You also dealt with your convictions – negative and positive – and learned how you can use affirmations to turn negative convictions around and continue reworking your money mindset.

Your fantastic financial future

All we can do is strongly recommend to you that you stay on these issues and continue working on them. One week is usually not enough, but it’s a good start. On a daily or at least regular basis, use the techniques you’ve learned from the course, such as the money journal, meditation, and affirmations. They cost nothing and have an enormous effect on your money mindset. They build your confidence and give you strength, and that’s the most important thing on the journey to a strong financial future – full of happiness, simplicity, and trust. We wish you a great deal of success!
