What your finances say about your mindset
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
I really, really desire a new car. But I also have credit card debt that I need to pay off. I hear your voice in my head telling me to act on my desire, but I also have a voice in my head telling me to pay off my debt FIRST. Am I thinking about this inaccurately?
I think the real question here isn’t actually about where to spend your money; it’s a question of mindset.
You see, the lower and middle class mindset is steeped in the word “OR”.
They ask, “Should I do this OR should I do that?”
They see limitation and lack.
The wealthy think in terms of “AND”.
They ask, “What would need to happen for me to do this AND that?” OR “What would I need to do differently so that I could have this AND that?”
They see possibility and abundance.
I want to encourage you to think like the wealthy.
What are you resisting doing or being that would allow you to pay off your debts AND purchase the car?
That’s the question you must ask if you wish for your financial situation to change.
