It’s Friday and time for our word of the week –the word this week is mind shift.

I choose the word mind shift because it’s what so many of us will have to experience in order to get to where we want to go. That is, adjusting your mind to bring about a change in your behavior which leads to changes in all parts of your life. There’s an saying that goes something like this…what got you here won’t get you there. So if you are not getting closer to where you want to go, it may be time for a mind shift.

You may need to take a different path and that could take you right out of your comfort zone. I listened to an interview with a blogger this week – a very successful blogger who was very transparent when it came to money. She openly talked about how much she made and what she paid for various things she bought. And, she said that she had received some criticism from some of her readers for being so open about money. Which makes you wonder why they kept reading if they found it so distasteful. But I digress. That’s just one example – talking about money – that might be a catalyst to get you moving in the right direction.

Look at it this way, if you’re not where you want to be and you don’t seem to be getting any closer going through a mind shift can be a great opportunity to move into a new space to discover your money voice, to exercise your money muscles. And that’s what it’s all about –mastering your money so that you can create the life you want – and ultimately to live life on your terms, not someone else’s.

Our word of the week is mind shift. Adjusting your mind to bring about change in your behavior.
