Psychology of Money: Your Beliefs About Money Can Impact how you Manage it

Psychology of Money: Your Beliefs About Money Can Impact how you Manage it

Have you ever spent money on something you knew was stupid, silly, or ill-advised? Have you ever known what you “should” do with your money, and then not done it? Do you procrastinate about important financial decisions, afraid you’ll make the wrong move? And then beat yourself up about it?

Here are two pieces of good news. You’re normal. And these are issues that can be solved.

We all have beliefs about money. Many of those beliefs were formed when we were young, maybe before we even knew what money really was. Sometimes those beliefs get in the way of our financial peace of mind.

Where Our Beliefs Come From

  • Many of the attitudes we’ve internalized come from our childhood. Even when we don’t realize it, things our parents said and things we saw them do shaped our attitudes about life in general and our financial lives in particular.
  • Culture and religion play a role, too, teaching us additional lessons about earning, spending, saving, and giving. Everything from “the stock market is a gamble” to “donate a percentage of your income to those less fortunate” are lessons we absorbed.

If those beliefs help us make the financial decisions that are best for us, great. But all too often they may get in the way.

Working With A Financial Planner

Chances are, your path to financial health involves several major questions. Should you invest more or pay down your mortgage? Should you save more for retirement or for your child’s dream college?

The right answers aren’t about how well a given investment performs. The answers that are best for you, and only you, need to include your attitudes toward debt, your feelings about risk, and the value you place on your financial goals. How important is it to you to be debt-free? To own a home? To pay for your child’s education?

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
