I recently came across an article by the financial guru, Suze Orman, about “What Money Has Taught Me About Personal Power.” Throughout the article, she touches upon some excellent points I feel can apply to anyone’s life. Regardless of how much you make, what debt you have, or whatever else has happened in your life, you can take back your power and not let money control you.
Out of the six topics she touches upon in her piece, the two that stood up to me were: 1) Do what’s right, not what’s easy and 2) How you respect your possessions says a lot about how you respect yourself.
Do What’s Right, Not What’s Easy. She touches upon some excellent points in this section because it is so easy to run up credit card debt. Suze Orman suggests you ask yourself three questions: Is it kind? Is it necessary? Is it true? And you should answer yes to all three questions before lending money or cosigning on anything.
How You Respect Your Possessions Says A Lot About How You Treat Yourself. I found this one to be extremely interesting because as the saying go, your outer world reflects your inner world. In the piece, she advises you ask yourself what were you feeling the last time you bought your last item? How did it make you feel?
While you get in touch with your inner power surrounding money, now is a good time to clean out all the clutter in your home and reclaim your power. Here are some great tips through feng shui.
