What if adapting and conforming to have the same points of views as everyone else limits your money flows? As much as we care about our family, friends, teachers, religion, and culture, we adopt their thinking automatically, often without being aware of how these views will influence our choices in the future.
Instead of blindly following other people’s points of view about money, you can easily grow your own money brain with these 3 steps.
1. Educate yourself about money and how it functions.
Educating yourself about money will open up a space for you to see the myths, lies, and fears that have been making your financial decisions. You may be extremely uncomfortable! But when you stop blindly following what you’ve been told, you will start trusting your own awareness of what you know and don’t know. Then you have control of your money and future.
One of the fastest ways to educate yourself is by asking questions. Ask questions until you have clarity with your situation.
2. Eliminate as much confusion about money as possible.
Having adequate information creates ease. If you are confused, you are missing information.
Do not ignore your knowing. Ask yourself these questions:
Write down ALL the answers that come to you.
If you have to, you can always Google specific vocabulary, banking and taxation information.
This list will keep growing. Add to it whenever you have a new awareness. You may be surprised at how much you actually would like to learn.
The important thing is to just start!
3.Be willing to ask for help.
Educating yourself doesn’t mean you have to know it all…you just need to be willing to ask questions. If you don’t know something, who can you ask to help? As Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness, says
There are no stupid questions; only stupid people who don’t ask.
