Do you see money as hard to come by?
Are you always living from week-to-week?
Do your savings always seem to disappear?
Many of us have a self-destructive relationship with money without even realising it.
The thing is, we inherently develop our relationship with money from either those that surround us, or those that mentor us.
And most of us learn about money from watching our parents.
So if they struggled with money (like mine did), it’s likely that you’ll learn that making money is hard, and that money is scarce.
And your attitude towards making your own wealth as an adult will be shackled by this belief.
But while we all place so much importance on money itself, realistically money is nothing of actual physical value. Money is a vehicle to create your dream life.
But when emotion is wrapped up around money, it can muddy the waters.
That’s when we get excited about the latest ‘guru’ and buy courses or whatever (that ironically cost money but don’t necessarily make you any back).
The truth about creating wealth is that anyone can do it.
If you have the right structure and strategies around saving wealth, you could earn $10,000 bucks a year, and still be more wealthy than someone who earns $100,000 a year.
I’ve seen people earning 6 figures a year have no cash to pay for their groceries.
And I’ve personally mentored clients earning $50k to become cashflow-rich AND have solid
investment strategies in place, where they’re steadily growing their net worth each year.
My own wealth creation strategy is effective but boring.
I have simple systems set up that filter my income to where it needs to go to grow my wealth.
My bills are paid without me even having to touch them. My investments grow. The important things are taken care of. And I still have some ‘play money’ for the month.
Instead of following the simple ‘money comes in, money goes out’ formula most people follow, I parcel off percentages of my income. Those parcels of income get funneled into places where it will grow over time.
I’m not telling you this to brag.
I’m telling you this because my strategy has no emotion around it. It uses money as a tool to facilitate the lifestyle I want, both today and into the future.
And because I have a system set up that I don’t have to touch, I can focus on other things.
Things that I actually enjoy.
Like creating content, bringing new ideas to life, and serving my clients.
What I really want you to take from this email is that your money should always be leveraged to work for you.
Not just sit in a bank account waiting to be spent.
If money was a problem for you at all in 2018, you MUST start thinking about a different strategy for growing your wealth in 2019.
I’m talking about a better strategy than ‘I’ll just make more money’.
I’m talking about a strategy that leverages maximum return from what you already make.
