The way we think about money determines all of our relationship to it, how much we have, how much we spend, how much we save. The way we think about time determines all of our relationship to it, our perception of how much time we have, how much time we spend, waste or invest.
What we think (you are fat like a cow) becomes what we say (you ugly fat cow).
And what we say determines our actions. Our actions turn into habits, and habits determine our destiny.
Show me your habits, and I can pretty much predict your future: pretty scary, isn’t it?
Most of us don’t even think about what we do on an everyday basis, yet our actions of today (determined by our thoughts of today) absolutely shape what our tomorrows will look like.
When we think hurried thoughts, our speech reflects the fact that we feel hurried, and our actions will do the same (multi-tasking, doing things superficially, only half-listening, etc…) and we wind up with a hurried, unfulfilled life.
When we think poor thoughts, we speak the language of poverty, which causes us make “poor” choices, leading to poor habits and a poor life.
On the other hand, when we respect our time and money, we make room for them (see principle #1). Our speech, actions and habits reflect our beliefs. When we value these precious assets for what they are, they work for us and not against us.
Our beliefs directly influence our behaviors.
The good news is, we can change what we believe. And when we change beliefs, we change our thoughts. And when we change our speech, then our actions, our habits and ultimately our destiny.
It’s your birthright to choose your set of beliefs.
The bad news is, most of us don’t really know what we believe or think about time and money. Do you listen to what is going on in your head? Are you aware of the story you are telling yourself?
We are a group of women who help each other “own our lives” with joy, concentrating on handling Time and Money God’s way right now. You can join us right here!
