Full disclaimer: I am not yet financially free. I have consequences and circumstances that I am dealing with too.
The same way that I transformed each and every area of life in mindset, health, wealth, business, time, location, I know that I will get to financial freedom. The goal is Feb 2021 and I repeat it daily.
The first key is shifting your money mindset. What is your current story with money? I want you to think about the experiences with money as a child. What emotions centered around money in your childhood with your family?
When you look at the time you spent creating or making money in the last decade did you enjoy it? How about your average annual income the last decade?
Do you spend in line with goals?
Are you a faithful steward?
Do you practice gratitude daily?
Are you excited every day?
Do you take action towards vision?
I shared earlier how millions of Americans are one paycheck away from financial disaster. I believe a large part of this is because of people doing something they dislike for money for years leading to resentment and entitlement.
6 Pack of wealth is your second key to being a money maker and manager. People talk about a 6 Pack of Abs, how about a 6 Pack of Wealth?
Ask yourself - Do you give regularly? Are you saving consistently? Does your spending show gratitude and contentment? When is the last time you invested in yourself or your business? How are you consistently leveraging?
I call these behaviors 6 Pack of Wealth. I humbled myself years ago, and continue to in every way. I realized how I mismanaged money for years showing feelings of inadequacy, scarcity, and poverty.
I became aware of misalignment to being a faithful steward of money. The first step is being self-aware and choosing to take aligned action.
My first year changing my money habits, I transformed and reduced over 50% of my existing wealth. This led to focusing on giving, investing, and leverage. Then, step by step I shifted to saving and creating. I am my own student as well as we all are. I use the tools I create for transformation myself.
So, where's the next step for you in your 6 Pack of Wealth?
