Money is a cultural passion. Whether we accept it openly or quietly, money is important in our lives. Not in a binary way, when a person loves money, does not care about other good qualities in life or if he has never talked about money, it should make them holy. But money as a means to an end; A channel that takes you to a better place than you were 12 months ago. As a contribution to your growth and source of building a rich life.
I grew up with a shortage and believed that I should work tirelessly until retirement and save enough money. This thought greatly emphasized all the decisions I had made in life. Tired of the decision before deciding how much to spend and what to spend – Expensive coaches in Peloton – and a serious case of not spending enough. This spin cycle calculates my growth over the years.
Years ago I changed my relationship with money. I share 3 timeless goals that can help you rebuild your relationship with money.
- Trading money to buy time
Our lives are busy and apart from this epidemic, our list should be long and long. This makes time a valuable asset. Choose whatever you are working on – project report, side noise, house design, song production – usually, it always takes longer than we set aside money for.
Can we buy time back? The purpose here is to buy time back to use that time to take care of priorities, creative activities or small goals for the day. I like to keep things in place for the day as that keeps things balanced and very attractive.
A 16-hour day can be quickly removed with a variety of items we find. Some of these things are on our to-do list and we know they will require our attention but there are many unexpected things that come up and use our time like unexpected calls, emails, social media. All of these things add up a little bit before you see it, the hour is gone.
So, if you start by thinking that some unknown things will surely come up and allocate their time, that makes a good place to start. You can check the last week and see how long those items lasted. That helps you get into active mode. Start with an unexpected weekly rate and your accuracy in predicting the sharpness of the week.

- Find the source of your thinking
Our financial relationships are based on the behaviors we saw growing up. How our parents, our role models and that beloved uncle shared the topic of money. Was money discussed at all times for dinner, whether it was famine or surplus? Even if the money had to be borrowed more often or by a friend or relative? Has the loan ever been repaid? These are just a few examples of how we understand and ultimately maintain financial negotiations. Not only do we also absorb the emotions, reactions and statements that are made and look, they become our money-making rules.
But not all ideas can interfere with the structure of our thinking process and ultimately our health. Therefore, it is very important that you pause and check who is taking the financial advice from you.
Money is not a special subject but it emphasizes the kind of life we live, the books we read, the adventures we make and that the tip we leave at a restaurant is accompanied by a friendly smile or wave.
If you do not like how money affects your life decisions, then ask yourself this question – how do you come to think this way? This question often brings you closer to the source of the thinking and gives you the opportunity to decide whether to change your relationship with money or not.
“Don’t tell me what your priorities are. Show me where you spent your money and I will tell you what they are. ”- James W. Frick
- Cost compared to value
Years ago I began to ask the question, “What is the value of spending money?” Price = which of my problems will be solved. Cost = real dollars I spend.
All of this while looking at things from a dollar point of view, I was paying. And the size of that figure was often a determining factor as to whether or not to travel.
You could argue that ‘value’ is the level of development you experience in your life. Can I pay about 60% more on earphones, (not a wireless fan) because they don’t hold up all the time and go well? Can I afford to save $ 100 on a better phone or laptop, something I will use every day for at least a few years? Will I think twice about helping my friend’s fundraiser? Not an opportunity.
Value is something that solves my problem and improves my health. I see it as a way to get rid of annoying things so that I can stop throwing myself at things like working on my goals or increasing my leisure time.
Our relationship with money lasts a lifetime. Re-hash according to your terms.
