Attitude Check
by Doris Dobkins

Are you good at handling money? Are you good at money management? Robert J. Hastings wrote, ďmoney management is basically self-control, for unless one learns to control himself, he is no more likely to control his money than he is to discipline his habits, his time or his temper. Undisciplined money usually spells undisciplined persons.Ē (This is a quote, I didnít say it and Iím sure there are exceptions.)

These are some strong statements but they need to be said. So how do we learn self-control with respect to our money? The key is to obtain a proper attitude. Donít consider yourself in bondage when managing your money. Look at yourself as FREE when you do manage it correctly.

You will have freedom and power to do what you should instead of what your impulses suggest. You wonít have liabilities and debts hanging over your head. You wonít have bill collectors calling you demanding payments. You wonít have the worries associated with debt when you canít make a payment or met an obligation. And there wonít be extra month at the end of very paycheck. You will learn to be content where you are and with what you have.

So donít think of money management as a systematic plan, which you must be a slave to. Think of money management as an attitude, your attitude toward how you save, spend and earn your money

Make today the first day on your quest to financial freedom and a debt free life.
