Dave Ramsey talks about baby steps when it comes to taking control of
one’s money. While I haven’t participated in his program, I have read quite a bit about it. I love the term “baby steps” when it comes to taking control of, shifting, and expanding one’s money mindset.
You’re here because money gives you anxiety. You live in constant fear
you either don’t have enough or you at some point, next week or someday,
won’t have enough. You might lie awake at night and worry about not having enough money, or you constantly speak about how you can’t afford what you want or even what you need (like groceries or paying your electric bill).
Trying to make a giant leap from where you are to where you want to be
can be a huge mistake. Big jumps in consciousness do happen, but they are
exceedingly rare. In fact, if you’ve tried to expand your consciousness in
various ways before and failed, you’re not alone.
Taking small steps to expand your mindset will ensure that you will
permanently change your set point.
Expanding your mindset is not unlike training for an endurance run such
as a marathon. If you’ve never run before, you wouldn’t just decide to run the local marathon on Sunday. You would begin a training program that
Beginning Magic Money is the part of the program where you begin
ways. Permanently changing what you believe about money, how you think
about it, and what you believe about it will simply mean you have more of it. In fact, you’ll always have exactly what you need when you need it, with
plenty left over.
Money is like air, I promise you! You don’t worry that the last breath you
took is going to be the last of the air available to you, or that you might run
think about it.
To get to the point where money is like air for you, you must make some
changes—some permanent, lasting, and enjoyable changes.
