What is your financial condition?

I can tell you there are days when my financial condition is a mess.  It does not matter if you are young, old, married or single if you don’t get a handle on your finance your condition will decline.

Finance is the art of passing currency from hand to hand until it finally disappears. — Robert W. Sarnof

I thought this quote was fitting. Currency passes from hand to hand until it is finally disappears.  What happens to the residual incomes you receive? Many times it is spent before its deposited into your account. How in the world does this happen.  Are we living beyond our means, are we taking an account of our spending and saving pattern.

I remember growing up and my grandmother would say “baby, always pay yourself first.” She never said how much to pay yourself, but always pay yourself first. This rings in my ear still today. A friend of mind since passed on would say, “I have always put 10 dollars away every time I received money and guest what she retired very early in our working journey.”

Financial condition of many is like fatigue and weakness. Intermittent financial disasters today money coming in and tomorrow the money is going out increasing and causing your condition to decline.  One day financial picture looks wonderful and you take another peak and wow it has declined again.

“Old or young, rich or poor, married or single, it doesn’t matter─ one of the first things we do at the Bach Group after discussing one clients’ values is to figure out their current financial condition” (Bach, 1999).

Figuring out your financial condition is important to the road of healing.  It is difficult to understand and change behavior if you don’t know what is wrong “getting organized is one of the keys to financial security (Bach, 1999)

Getting organized is the challenge for many of us. There are some people who can manage their finances perfectly. I’m not in that category I have to work and work at this every day.  Let say I’m walking unto perfection and I’ll be walking for a long timeJ, improving your financial condition is important.  Just like we have check-ups and annual physicals we need to have a financial checkup.

Make your appointment and get financial healthy you be happy you did I guarantee it.

  1. If you have the correct mindset for all the money in the world then you will avoid squandering it!!
    To do that you have to work twice as hard on you as you do on your business. That way you will attract the people who want to be where you are in life and they will choose you as an authority over their other 600 home based business options.

  2. This blog is so right “on the money” pun intended! I believe that money, currency, represents our energy that we have expended to earn it. So it is stored energy. If we mismanage our money, we are wasting our own energy. We usually have to work harder to stay in the same place if we are not as you suggest diligent with our money management.
