Manifesting Better Finances Through Subliminals Audios

Jul 13 2020 Published by under Uncategorized

When we are at the point in life where we need to ensure our money and finances are doing alright, some people might be discomforted to see and realize that their money situations might need some help.

This is about changing our minds and brains to help us act and think differently. We know that we might need a better financial situation and subliminals can help us by gradually changing our thoughts to encourage better money related habits.

Somehow too much of society started accepting and practicing inefficient and poor money habits that literally brought their finances down to very low point.

It is clear that a lot of people want to change their finances for the better, but it is not clear how this might be achieved over time and that is where subliminal usage comes in.

We just have to accept that very particular subliminal audios can be used to change and shift our thoughts into something far more desirable. They can hone our mental and emotional focus so that our lives change for the better both in the short term and in the months and years to come.

Consistent listening is required to reap the greatest rewards from subliminals, but that is one of the new positive habits that the audios can help us achieve. As you listen more your brain and life start to reflect very deep and dynamic changes over time, and that is why these audios are so powerful.

Some might be hesitant and almost doubtful that such deep and drastic change can come from listening to subliminals, but this is about using the audios and they have to be listened to in order to gain their benefits.

That is why a lot of people stay stuck and idle in their money lives because they do not change their habits over time, and they do not do anything that can immediately alter and shift their mental and physical habits in a very short period of time.

Subliminals can be used to enact very powerful and deep change, but the consistent listening part is where a lot of people fall away and that is simply not a problem when you consider how immensely powerful they can be on our lives.

The only drawback is that you need to keep listening in order to gain the higher benefits and advantages that the audios can bring you, and for most of us that isn’t much of a problem considering how deeply our lives and finances will change over the coming weeks and months.

The Essentials Of Home Ownership FINANCES

Jul 13 2020 Published by under Uncategorized

Wouldn’t it be nice, and make more sense, if, potential homeowners, fully considered, the essentials of FINANCES, and planned, accordingly, to achieve their finest goals, expectations, and needs? Since, for most of us, the value of our house, represents our single – biggest, financial asset, shouldn’t we prepare, as well as possible, and proceed, with, eyes – wide – open? With that in mind, this article will briefly consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, why this, so often, makes the difference, between truly enjoying owning a home, and becoming overwhelmed, and needlessly, stressed, by the day – to – day, obstacles, of home ownership.

1. Funding; future: If we, first, examine and consider, as many areas of funding, etc, as possible, we reduce much unnecessary, and avoidable stresses, and hassles. Prepared homeowner, look, at both, current, as well as future needs, and structure, a relevant, quality, financial plan. Most only consider the need for having a down – payment, but overlook the necessary, future reserves, for repairs, renovations, upgrades, maintenance, and, in case of an unforeseen setback. Doing so, requires, a large degree of focus, and discipline!

2. Intentions: Know your personal intentions, before buying a house. Are your plans, to keep it for the longer – term, or, simply, as a starter home? This will dictate, the best way, to organize your personal finances, as it relates to owning a home, of your own!

3. Needs: Do you know, both, your present needs, as well as probable future ones? Those who plan, accordingly, are usually, best – prepared, and enjoy home ownership, in a less stressful way!

4. Asset: Think of your house. not only from an emotional perspective, but, also, as the most significant asset, in your portfolio! Protect it, by preparing for potential eventualities!

5. Nervous: It’s normal, to be, somewhat, nervous, about being a homeowner. The better you plan, and prepare, the happier, and least stressed, you will be!

6. Choices: You’ll face several choices, throughout the process, from the house – hunting, beginning, to owning a house. What kind of house, and property, do you need, will meet foreseeable future needs, and will satisfy, much of what you want, seek and desire? What renovations, upgrades, etc, might align with both your emotional, as well as logical components?

7. Emphasis: Don’t try to keep up, with the Jones’, but determine what’s most important to you, and where you should place, your emphasis!

8. Service; solution: What will serve you, and what is your solution, to aligning and coordinating, your approach, in a head/ heart balance?

The wisest homeowners consider, and prepare, their FINANCES. Will you be, your best friend, or, own, worst enemy?

Empowerment and Equality and Your Finances

Jul 13 2020 Published by under Uncategorized

The slogan “girl power” has been used for decades to encourage and celebrate female empowerment, independence, and confidence. The term used most often relates to sports and employment; however, new studies are showing that women need to exert their girl power when it comes to finances and financial planning.

A recent study released by UBS shows that 58% of women worldwide defer long-term financial decisions to their spouses. This study included nearly 3,700 high-net-worth married women, widows and divorcees in nine countries. The results of the study showed that 85% of women were responsible for the day-to-day finances; just not the long-term.

What is really interesting is the generational span of this survey and, most notably, the generation most likely to allow someone else to control their decisions: millennials! Millennials are a generation well known for promoting equality and empowerment. Unfortunately, the survey results indicate the helicopter-style parenting millennials were raised with, where someone else is always ensuring their well-being, has bled into the financial realm. Fifty-nine percent of millennial women aged 20 – 34 are more likely to allow their spouse to take the lead compared to 55% of women over 50. The general excuse from the younger women is they have “more urgent responsibilities than investing and financial planning”. Even more contradictory to the equality movement is they “believe their spouses know more about long-term finances than they do”.

The challenge this arrangement poses is the lack of preparation and understanding should a life event such as death or divorce occur. The report noted that 74% of the widowed and divorced women it surveyed reported “discovering negative financial surprises after a divorce or death of their spouse.” Hindsight resulted in 74% of these respondents wishing they had been more involved in long-term financial decisions while they were married, rather than trying to navigate them while coping with such significant life changes.”

The ideal solution is for both partners in a relationship to be aware of both the short- and long-term aspects of their finances. Whether you are married, engaged, common-law or committed, financial planning is another part of creating a responsible long-lasting arrangement between two parties. In this age, knowledge really is power. So be powerful, take control of your money.

Like the saying goes, the first step is recognizing the problem. Take the next step in addressing the problem.

Finances Are Vitally Important

Jul 13 2020 Published by under Uncategorized

It is a true saying that you cannot get along without money. Finances are vitally important in the lives of everyone living upon the earth. There may be some places where money is not the medium of exchange, but some type of trade must be used to obtain the necessities of life.

People who do not work and earn money or who are not gifted with money must find a way to obtain funds. Most often, people work for the money they get. They are traded dollars for time and expertise. They receive pay for doing a job or some kind of service.

People sometimes beg, borrow, or steal to get what they need or the money necessary to buy the things they feel they require. Beggars on the street are not exempt from the need for money. It is something everyone needs to some degree.

Just as no one will get out of this life without trials, financial hardship may come to most people at some time in their lives. The challenge to secure funds which are not readily available can cause much stress and difficulty. Sometimes it is through no fault of their own that people suffer the consequences of not having enough money.

That is what happened to Japanese Americans during World War II when around 120,000 persons of Japanese heritage in the United States were forcibly removed from their homes on the West Coast. They were placed in what have come to be known as American concentration camps. The hastily constructed barracks and other buildings in these camps were placed in desolate and remote areas of the country. People were taken there and incarcerated, most for the duration of the war.

As soon as the bombing of Pearl Harbor happened by the Imperial Navy of Japan, Americans and immigrants of Japanese descent were immediately looked upon as the enemy. Most of those living in the United States were American citizens. Their lives were immediately thrown into chaos as their bank accounts were frozen and their livelihood was threatened. They faced extreme financial hardship as most of them lost nearly everything they possessed. Their material goods were stripped away, and financial ruin loomed as the likely consequence as they lost their jobs. Life was dark and uncertain.

After spending over three years in the unjust confinement of the camps, these people were released at the war’s end. They tried to resume their lives and tried to earn money again. Financial problems were many and extreme. Yet most persevered and eventually came out ahead.

How did they do it? They became successful because they worked hard. Although they still faced racism and discrimination after the war had ended, they did not give up. They faced many adverse financial situations and problems, but they forged ahead with determination. Future generations benefitted from their determination and hard work.

Canadian’s Personal Finances Fiscal Cliff: Are We There Yet?

Jul 13 2020 Published by under Uncategorized

Today we hear much talk about the USA’s economy approaching the so-called “fiscal cliff.” What about your personal financial affairs? Are you at the fiscal cliff as we inch toward 2013? Canadians are swamped in debt. Monthly, we read about the rising debt-to-disposable income ratio that stands now at around the precarious 164% level.

Although the world and many at home commend our government for its brilliant fiscal management, few warn about the unsustainable personal debt levels. Indeed, our central bank chief, Mark Carney, accepted an appointment to a similar role at the prestigious Bank of England. Will his legacy here be that of hero or villain? Will history show that he held interest rates low for too long, encouraging many folks to take on debt they cannot afford?

To his credit, he, our finance minister, and prime minister have been warning Canadians about these dangerously high personal debt levels. However, Carney could curtail the rise by raising interest rates. Sure, higher rates will dampen current slow economic growth. Even so, I think short-term pain is better than the likely personal finances’ crash that might happen if debt remains at present levels, or grows.

What can Canadians do to avoid their fiscal cliff? Let us examine three vital steps.

  1. Accept you are dangerously leveraged.
  2. Set a mechanism in place to live with declining debt
  3. Develop a new vocabulary to guide your behavior

Accept You Are Dangerously Leveraged

You can’t solve a problem unless you recognize it. Do you think you are carrying too much debt? Your banker might tell you no; however, you alone can answer this. Take a helicopter view. What are you and your family’s emotional responses to your debt? Are you worried? Can’t sleep? If yes, you have too much debt. Certainly, look at ratios, but this is the key barometer.

The emotional cost of debt is the first and the most significant cost. If debt is 10% of income, and is causing problems for you or at least one in your family, it is too much. Still, you must accept reality and decide to live with it, take on no more, and start a debt free lifestyle.

If you are a Christian, give this emotional stress to Jesus (Matthew 11:28).

Set A Mechanism In Place To Live With Declining Debt

People are impatient. We live in a now society. Sadly, probably you got into debt over a long period, and it is likely you will get out over an extended time. Accept this fact and learn to live with it.

Develop a strategy to live in your debt. Look at how you got there; draft principles to prevent a recurrence; and then write a financial plan – alone or with help. The plan should show concisely how, by following your principles, you might be debt free in a specific time.

If you got into debt by impulsive spending, you might develop a principle never to buy without a list and a budget. As well, when you feel you need to spend, you might want to wait 24-48 hours during which time you would talk with your spouse or accountability partner.

You will have to find what might work for you, decide if you need help, and try to get it.

Prepare a debt-meter and place on your fridge. Monthly, as you repay debt, adjust the debt-meter.

Develop a new vocabulary to guide your behavior

This sounds easy, is simple, and when you get it, will be your most effective debt control “tool.” What you believe will decide how you behave. If you believe emergencies happen and cause you to spend erratically, you won’t change your behavior. However, if you believe that apart from the timing, most “budget emergencies” can be planned and should be planned by setting aside funds regularly to meet them, you will plan accordingly.

Your car will need repairs. It will need new tires. Your furnace will go, and so on. The issue here is timing. You don’t know when these potential budget busters will happen. Even so, you know they will occur, so create a capital fund, a rainy-day fund, emergency fund, or some other means to save for these predictable events. If you accept this fact about emergencies, and understand that to get there you must sacrifice today’s consumption, this is the start of your major victory over debt.

Another key vocabulary change is to accept that you can’t mange money, you can manage only your behavior – change from money management to lifestyle management.

Summary

As we enter 2013, look at your finances. You will know if you are at the fiscal cliff. Rest assured, you do not need more money to get you through, first, you need to accept where you are. Next, set a mechanism to live where you are as you work off your debt. Then examine your vocabulary, your beliefs, and adjust them to reality.

I pray you will turn away from easy seductive credit and start moving away from debt.
