10 Quick Prosperity Tips

Prosperity Tips1. Be clear about what you want and need. Remember this favourite saying of mine: If one of us has to be uncomfortable, it doesn’t have to be me.

2. When you are having financial difficulties, instead of thinking about who you can borrow money from, ask yourself, “How can I generate the money that I need.”

3. Clean out the old to make way for the new. Get rid of clutter and give away things you haven’t used in a long time and probably won’t use again.

4. If you aren’t keeping track of your spending and earning, set up a system for doing this. If you have a smart phone, check out the available money management apps.

5. Move your body. Exercise is one of the most valuable things you can do for yourself. Just 15 or 20 minutes a day or brisk walking has enormous health benefits and stimulates the production of endorphins, which are brain chemicals that can keep you in a positive mood.

6. Get a clear picture in your mind of what you want to accomplish. Start with small upgrades to your current situation and as you see changes, do it again. Spend time each day visualizing your goal as having happened. Follow your inner guidance.

7. Develop a practical strategy for reaching your goal. It’s a good idea to share your idea with someone who is successful and get some feedback. For business ideas, in the U.S., go to a Small Business Development Center and ask for help. Your tax dollars at work.

8. Treat yourself like someone you love. If someone was standing next to you saying some of the things you say to yourself, would you stay or walk away. Don’t tolerate critical self-talk. Instead praise and encourage yourself on a regular basis.

9. Do one thing every day that you haven’t done before so you can adapt to change and move your life forward.

10. Learn about the world of finance. Even if you only read the headlines on sites like www.CNNMoney, www.Fool.com, and www.CNBC.com, this will give you a feel for finance and money. Do this a few times a week.

SPECIAL NOTE: Thanks to the Journal of Financial Therapy for the terrific review of Build Your Money Muscles.

Here’s an excerpt:
“This book is recommended to planners, counselors, and therapists who have clients that are working through therapy issues in which money plays a supporting role. It is a quick and easy read that can be a good resource for many people, including those who represent a variety of socioeconomic audiences, due to the absence of financial jargon.”

It felt great to be recognized by a professional journal.
