22 Apr ROMANTIC FINANCE
These two words have stamped themselves on my brain, memory and thoughts for a few days now. I first saw the words used together when my husband and his friend were hosting their webinar titled “Finance and Romance”. As I thought about the words, what they might connote and why they seemed like the perfect couple clarity dawned on me (not in the way you are thinking it to be right now). Keep reading “wink”.
The clarity is not anyway related to relationship or the role finance plays in a “good relationship” but in how romancing your finance can help you get your finances right. Do you know how to romance your finance and get the best out of it? Do you have the prerequisite knowledge to attract more money to yourself and home?
Romance manifests as two parts of a speech which are noun and verb. Verb (the action word) is our focus today. It is a verb that tell us what is being done in a statement e.g. court, date, engage (when referring to a romantic affair) track, budget, save, invest are all action words (when referring to finance and money). When in a romantic affair/relationship, you tend to focus on, pay attention to, nurture, tend, to ensure that love grows. In the same vein, money grows when paid the necessary attention and in good time too.
If you want your money to grow, you need to endure that it receives the TLC it needs to blossom, grow and increase. Here are a few things you need to pay attention to:
1. Acknowledge that you need to make a change and have a new kind of mindset towards how you view your relationship with money.
2. Keep your attraction to money positive and alive. A lot of people don’t know how to achieve this and go all about it wrongly. If you need to get this right then you need to learn how to.
3. Get out of your comfort zone, be adventurous, and increase your risk appetite. Many people are risk avert because we are afraid of losing what we have worked so hard for. We would rather have it sitting in our bank accounts to lose value than trade with it.
4. Someone said “discipline makes the heart grow fonder”. What level of discipline do you need to cultivate in nurturing your romance with money? Track your spending, use a budget, save consistently, invest regularly, being charitable in measure with your capacity per time or increase your knowledge about money management? Develop your money discipline today and you’ll be glad you did.
In order to attract more money into your life, you must learn to romance your finances. In so doing, you will be able to finance your romance. This is not romance in relationship but romance as in everything you love and desire to own. If you love it and dream. about it often then you are romancing it .
In summary, learn how to finance your romance by romancing your finance.
