Money? It’s Not What You Think!
When it comes to money, it’s not what we think that matters, it’s how we feel.
All decisions are emotional first. This means, how we feel about money directly dictates how many dollars we get to enjoy. Allow me to explain.
How Do You Feel About Money?
For example, if you’ve decided ‘money is in limited supply,’ how do you feel when you believe there’s never enough money to go around? Do you feel joyful or appreciative? Do you feel anxious, fearful, or worried? Take a moment and feel into the emotional meaning you assign to money.
What Reality Are You Validating?
Our feelings validate our reality. That’s why we can’t be objective with our subjective reality; our feelings will always validate what we see. And what we see is determined by how we feel about it. It’s the case of the cat constantly chasing its tail.
When The Cat Stops Chasing Its Tail
So, what can we do to stop validating a cat-constantly-chasing-its-tail reality? We can start by examining how we feel about money. Here are some Financial Emotional Intelligence (FEQ) strategies you can apply right now:
- Notice how you feel when money passes through your hands.
- Identify the money beliefs your feelings are validating.
- Hire a Financial Emotional Intelligence (FEQ) coach or mentor to help you connect the dots.
Becoming self-aware of our relationship with money has many advantages, including:
- We no longer allow money to control us.
- We light a fire within to develop our financial emotional intelligence (FEQ).
- We make decisions based on what we really want.
In conclusion …
Be proactive. Ask for help to positively transform your subjective reality. No one does it alone.
