Money Mindsets

Let’s get real about money, shall we? It’s this crazy, personal, and downright emotional rollercoaster in our lives. We all have our own quirks when it comes to money. Ever caught yourself thinking, “Why would that person buy that?” Yeah, we’ve all been there. But here’s the kicker: there’s a whole lot more to it than meets the eye.

 

See, what might seem crazy to someone else is just another day in the life for us. It’s all because of our unique values, upbringing, and the wild ride we call life.

 

Now let’s talk about the different ways people see money. Some people see money as a means to an end. They’re all about saving every penny and sticking to a budget like glue. Sure, they might miss out on a bit of fun along the way, but hey, they’re playing the long game.

 

Others view money as a source of joy, finding spending it on experiences, hobbies, and friends or family. Some use their money as a source of pleasure- by buying things they love or things that ‘signal’ success to other people. Financial wellness is about treating yourself to the things you need and love while still stashing some cash away for the future.

 

So, now that we’ve peeled back the layers on how people think about money, it’s time to learn from those around you. If you’re a spontaneous spender, you can start learning to save for the future. If you’re a disciplined saver, you can learn to enjoy life more in the present. Try engaging in open and non-judgmental conversations about money with friends and family. Let’s face it, we’ve all got some good habits to share and maybe a few bad ones to leave in the dust.
