“Money is only a tool.
It will take you wherever you wish,
but it will not replace you as the driver.”
~ Ayn Rand
January is Financial Wellness month. So, how are your finances feeling?
When you leverage the money you currently have in your life — physically, mentally and emotionally — your financial wellness increases. You become a better driver of your financial life.
Physically leveraging money is what most people are most familiar with. This includes saving, investing, etc. But what is mentally and emotionally leveraging money mean?
Mentally leveraging money means thinking about money in ways that empower you. It means that you respect the money you have and you manage it well. You keep your checkbook balanced. You track your income and expenses. You are on top of the flow of money in your life.
Emotionally leveraging money means feeling about money in ways that empower you. I means loving and appreciating what you have and what comes in. It means joyfully paying your bills — you have the money to pay them and are contributing to the economy! It means treating money like a treasured friend and guest in your life.
Even if your finances are not where you want them to be right now, you can leverage what you have in all these ways. Take baby steps if you must (start saving a penny a day and then work your way up from there, for example). Get started now and build toward a better, more financially well tomorrow.
