We are making decisions about how to use our money every single day. Some think that we have no control over it because it gets pulled into different directions almost instantly, and some just spend their money because ‘money is used for spending’ without thinking about where it goes. When we approach personal finance to improve on the quality of our lives, it can become restricting and impossible to commit to. But here is the deal – you can learn to see this in a different light by becoming your own investor.
While I talk about how we can turn our mindset towards abundance in finances during Mindset Mondays, I want to explain this thing I call Investor Mindset.
It is pretty much clear what investors do for a living – they put their money into something that gives them the biggest return out of their options. And so, imagine you are an investor and your life and things that come with it are the options that you have to spend your money and energy for. But realistically we don’t have all the money in the world to take every opportunity to spend money, so we need to choose.
Reflect on your last 10 purchases – how many of them helped you in some way, brought something into your life, or simply that you’re grateful for? Now, how many of the ones that are left will actually help you to continue investing (purchasing) next year? The chances are, the list is not big at all.
It’s not just about the money
Just like an investor you can choose the things that will bring you biggest results into your life. And I’m not just talking about the money. The relationships you cultivate today might become your most loyal friends yet, the time you take to improve a certain skill can take you places a couple of years from now. It is a matter of deciding what is actually important to you and nobody else.
