Are You on The Same Wavelength As Your Money?

There’s an old saying that goes “Actions speak louder than words.” As regards the current topic in question, it is quite understandable to say that spending boils down to an action that directly or indirectly implies values. This should explain exactly why the framework of finances is usually very personal, also challenging us to ask the burning question: what exactly do we value?

Is family the most valuable thing in our lives? Are our friends a top our lists of the most valuable things? Do we value happiness more than any other thing? Do we value health and travel? Or is it spontaneity?

In listing out and asking ourselves most of these questions, spending morphs into a way of self-examination that sheds light on our values and our actions. Sometimes, our actions and our values don’t add up and when something like that happens, life as a whole can get off its rails.

An example of a scenario like this is of a person who values his or health. However, when they look at their bank statements, they see that a lot of transactions actually relate to fast food that is unhealthy. This should undoubtedly lead to questions like these:

  •    Is your money on the same wavelength as you? Does it care about the same things that you do?
  •    Do you think that your budget is going towards things that you really care about or consider important?

Consequently, steps ought to be taken so as to realign our spending on the things we actually value. These steps include:

  •    Review your expenditures and put them in categories so as to see where exactly your money is going to. It is important to know where you currently stand so it will be easier to make a plan in the future.
  •    Admit to yourself that there might be some things in your budget that need some adjustments, but will take some time before they can be achieved.

    For example, it will require a lot of planning and time to move closer to your place of work so as to reduce travel time and increase the amount of time that you get to spend close to your family.
  •    Try setting up goals that will help you get your money back on track.
  •    Ensure that your goals are visible. When you’re faced with an impulse to spend money on a thing that you don’t really value, you can curb this impulse and stop yourself due to the fact that you have visual reminders close to you. Make sure you create visuals that contain pictures of your goals on your computer, on your wall and on your phone. Try to ensure that they’re around you at all times.
