It's 2015 and I'm writing about The Art of Money. Last week, I talked about The Money Block. This week, I am diving into how to Treat Your Money Like a Work of Art. Are you ready?...
Here's the thing: When you're creating a collection, a novel, an album, a show, an exhibit or any other creative project, you don't just sit down and bang it out in one sitting, right?? Not happening. It takes time.
You know you need to spend time on your creative projects, nurture your ideas, hammer out the details, write and rewrite, edit and workshop, rehearse and rehearse and rehearse. Getting things just right takes work, creativity, tweaking, attention and TIME.
Well guess what? The same thing goes for your MONEY.
What if you treated your finances like a work of art? How would that change your money thoughts, habits and results?
After all, money is the means to the end, the founder of the feast. You know that saying about how it takes money to make money? Making money. Hmmm... Sounds like the creative process to me.
Here's what I propose:
Take the time to get to know your financial resources in depth. Understand where your money comes from, how to nurture and grow it. Read about best practices just like you would any other topic you want to master. Ask for and get financial advice from financial professionals.
Here's what NOT to do:
STOP treating money like the enemy.
Start treating your money like your best friend and it will do the same for you.
STOP avoiding the subject of money.
Start talking about it, learning about it, paying attention to it and you will find it everywhere.
STOP chasing money like the elusive unicorn.
Start treating it with respect and make a long term commitment to caring for it and allowing it to care for you.
STOP thinking you never have enough.
Start appreciating what you have right now.
Follow these tips and you will be on your way to making bank with your talent. Don't give up! Soon enough you will be looking at your money masterpiece in the BANK!
