Do You Think Counting Lattes Will Pave The Path To Your Financial Freedom?

June 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 112

If you are anything like I am, life is a continual growth process, and no area has required more of me than becoming a grown up with my pocket book!

It seems our relationship with money connects to the core of who we were raised to be, whom we are becoming, and, our security along the way.

I'm the first to admit, I have been less than stellar at managing my finances. I've yo-yo'd between being a rigid saver and a frivolous spender. I've been overly generous when it was likely not wise, and I've been tight-fisted when I've had plenty.

I have experienced some super fantastic windfalls, as well as some dramatic losses. However, it was BOREDOM, not these peaks and valleys that ultimately prompted my willingness to dig a little deeper... and, I'm not talking about cutting back on Starbucks.

Are you bored with going round the same old money mountain time and time again? Is living month to month no longer the woman you've become? Yet, you've found yourself there time and time again?

This was my experience. Until the end of last year I came across a fresh financial approach.

You've heard the saying, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear? Well, it took a while, but earlier this year I was finally ready... and... ta-da!

Mercifully, I didn't have to write another budget, tighten my purse strings... I've done plenty of that! Haven't you?

I found the simple method nothing short of magical. All it took to begin was a little willingness on my part. I started with guided imagery, and almost immediately felt a quiet confidence building.

Guided imagery!? Oh, no!... not that woo-woo stuff! Not angels and goddesses and bright light!

It's so interesting to me, that shifting on the inside has been at the root of every great change in my life, yet, I would be resistant to it in to my financial life.

If "it's not for me" is your reaction, you may need to go around the mountain a few more times 'til you're open to joining me in checking her out... or, maybe you'll have a different path all together... which I'd love to hear about.

Of course, it'll be perfect, either way. And, honestly, I'm in the early stages of this shift myself. Even so, I sense there is greatness afoot, and I can't wait to report back on the miraculous growth ahead!

Mostly, I want to encourage you to seek financial solutions that work for you. If what you are doing isn't working, or has stopped working, try mixing it up a bit.

Do you think counting coffees is the answer? Is this what you do? Is it working? Is it limiting?

Do you have an attitude that will allow your finances to flourish? Is it possible a shift in attitude and perspective could create a shift in your bank account?

Please let me know where you are at with your dough-ray-me!

I am so grateful that we are walking this path together, and as always, I am in your corner...
