Healthy Self-Esteem and Money

Healthy self-esteem allows you to thrive financially and not just live paycheck to paycheck. How? By giving you the emotional self-confidence to learn, earn and thrive.

Here are three ways to enhance your financial self-confidence as well as your healthy self-esteem:

1. Take your financial self-confidence to the next level – read, learn and grow.
Have you read any good financial self-development books lately? Healthy self-esteem allows you to feel and be more self-confident about those everyday decisions concerning your moneymaking abilities. The more self-confident you feel about your ability to earn, control and grow your money, the more self-confident you’ll feel about your ability to create a prosperous future.

I’ve found that a healthy habit and powerful self-esteem booster is to read or listen to a self-development book or CD daily. Financial self-confidence is built one day at a time and one new ”aha” at a time. Here are a few powerful and possibly life-changing suggestions:

Women and Money, Suze Orman
The Automatic Millionaire, David Bach
Prince Charming Isn’t Coming, Barbara Stanny
Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki

My suggestion too, is to get up early or carve out time each day (or at least three or four days a week) to learn a new self-confidence building skill.

Here’s a quote by Jim Rohn I particularly like: “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”

2. Network with people who will enhance your financial self-esteem.
Positive people create positive results. If you’re truly serious about making more money and becoming more self-confident about your finances, then network with people who are making money and already have healthy financial self-confidence.

How about joining an investment or cash flow club. Another suggestion is to choose networking functions where you’ll meet like-minded financially success-oriented people. Ask questions, listen to what others are doing and then use your own judgment to make wise choices and decisions. Learn, absorb and then decide what will work best for you.

3. Healthy self-esteem is your most important financial success tool.
The healthier your self-esteem, the wiser your financial decisions. You’ll only be as self-confident as your healthy self-esteem allows you to be. Consistently nurturing, fostering and building healthy self-esteem is just as important as building your financial wealth.

Financial self-confidence is about learning, growing and believing you are worthy and deserving of the goods things in life. From the practical side, it’s about gaining financial knowledge. From the emotional side, it’s about believing you deserve to be financially self-sufficient and happy.

What have you done today to enhance your healthy self-esteem, both financially and personally?
