When you look at your payslip….what’s the first thougth that comes to mind each month? Do you happily run down to your financial advisor and check up on the latest investment opportunities because all your bills are paid and you have no money worries? Or are you mad as hell and don’t know what to do to make a difference in your financial life?
Now, you don’t have enough money, not because the financial sector doesnt spend on providing information on what to do with money. There are any number of financial seminars hosted by the Jamaica Stock Exchange, investment houses, the Jamaica Buiness Development Corporation, the Development Bank of Jamaica, the Exim Bank, you name it. There is even the Fabulous Life Conference coming up in May that is sure to get you thinking along the path of wealth creation. So the fact that information is ‘out there’ is not the problem.
According to http://www.hidden-wealth-keys.com/, “If information were the only ingredient necessary for success, then all those people who take wealth creation courses would be wealthy!In fact, the opposite is true.Only a very small percentage of students and product purchasers actually follow through on what they’ve learned.”
Hold the phone…..many hear, but few listen. And that’s the rub. We are not short of data, we are short of determination. Research shows that to have a better relationship with money, your motivation, habits, thoughts, self-image and emotions must all be aligned towards achieving that single goal.
Basically, you have to have the right frame of mind for any information that comes to you to make a difference. And reach out. Do not try and do this thing called wealth creation by yourself. Get out there and find a financial coach that understands what your particular issues are. Find a licensed finanical advisor that you feel comfortable with and can lead you in the right direction to save and invest. Get your attitude right and start to feel better about your money.
