The Five Steps to the My Money Myself Success Process
Use the following five step success process to improve your chances of reaching your financial goals and making long-lasting, positive financial changes in your life. For a more in-depth look at these five steps and how to implement them in your daily life, we suggest you take advantage of the self-guided My Money Myself Program.
Adopt an attitude that only allows for success; expect and settle for nothing less than success. Stay focused on your success by acknowledging and validating every accomplishment regardless how large or small it is. Successful people know to stay focused on and moving in the direction of success.
Preparing for success requires committing to success. This means keeping a clear image of success in your mind at all times and referring to that image – regardless of how well things are actually going. Preparing for success means doing the work no matter what else is going on in your life.
The right environment enhances the likelihood for success. An accessible, comfortable, inviting environment will change the way you relate to your money. This, in turn, will improve your relationship with your money and ultimately contribute to a shift in your financial conduct.
Determine what success means to you so as to be able to recognize how your life is changing. Defining success involves identifying what success represents to you so that you are inspired and motivated to work to achieve your definition of success. The clearer you are about what you want, the more focused you will be on attaining it.
Monitoring your progress allows you to recognize how you, your behavior and your life are changing. Change is a subtle process, so you may not always be aware of it. Monitoring your progress will allow you to recognize the small changes that add up to major changes.
We wish you the best as you make the necessary changes in your life to attain your goal of financial wellbeing. Remember, the Financial Therapy Network (FTN) is here to help empower you to heal your relationship with money through a unique, interactive and positive approach to financial wellness and money management.
