Become Intentional With Your Money
The more we can be consciously intentional with how we manage our financial inflows and outflows, the more in control we will feel.
When you truly understand that you have a choice with every expenditure (or investment as I like to call them) you make, then you will know that you are financially free.
Being free may not mean you have reached every financial goal you have set.
What it does mean is that you are the one in control of your financial destiny and you know it.
You are the one with the power to say yes or no to each investment you make every day.
For some this thought can be frightening.
It truly is easier to think you are not at choice, and that your finances are controlled by others.
This kind of belief lets you off the hook of making decisions, and making decisions means you are confident and capable of making good decisions for you.
I’ll let you in on a secret…
You are capable and confidence comes with learning and action. So it’s yours for the taking.
So how do you become intentional with money?
It starts with knowing what you truly desire.
The key here is what you truly desire – the life that you imagine for yourself that you have dreamed of!
So often we have given up on a lot of our goals and desires because we are not ‘financially free’.
So start with one goal… Do your homework and put some numbers to it.
Then decide, and remember decision is where freedom is, what you will do to take consistent steps towards that specific goal.
As you take the steps, you will build integrity within you.
Yes, there will be days and times you will feel challenged as life happens in unexpected ways.
This is where the intentionality comes in.
From the intentional space make a decision and take action.
Remember there are no rights or wrongs, just the actions you are taking day by day.
