It’s the craziest thing! SELF-WORTH and NET WORTH usually go hand-in-hand. It’s simple. It’s because the people who have self-worth and self-love attract money to themselves.
You love yourself, you feel you deserve money (and you do – everyone does) and when you are CERTAIN, money flows to you. Money loves certainty. Money is attracted to people who are certain, not to wishy-washy hopes and dreams, but well laid out detailed thought-through plans!
It boggles my mind that only 6.7% (according to CRA 2013 statistics) have MAXED OUT their TFSA’s.
The MAX that any Canadian can put in is $52,000 – that’s it. $52,000 and every Canadian should be taking advantage of these accounts. There’s no reason not to.
But it goes waaaaay deeper than just TFSAs or RRSPs. Canadians, Americans, PEOPLE on the WHOLE in the world are not SAVING and INVESTING in themselves regardless of culture or income size.
BUT YOU ARE NOT! WHY IS THAT? WHY AREN’T YOU SAVING EVERY MONTH? YES, I’m talking to you.
WHY DO YOU NOT VALUE YOURSELF ENOUGH TO SAVE AND INVEST IN YOURSELF?
Trust me when I say this too, as your net worth grows so does your self-confidence, your self-love.
And it’s NOT ABOUT THE DAMN MONEY!
Saving money is about this:
- valuing yourself
- valuing your legacy
- valuing your integrity and the commitments you keep with yourself
- loving yourself
- sharing that LOVE & your message with the world
- and if that’s not enough, then for sure it’s about the SHOES, and being able to buy whatever shoes whenever you want because
- freedom! (But ultimate freedom comes from living ultimately with constraint, consistency, and through some good habits!)
People who save/invest money do so because they VALUE themselves enough and know they are worth it. We as a society and world value money, and we typically value it pretty highly, higher than ourselves sadly. This needs to STOP. You need to start making money your B*TCH! It’s just a TOOL. Money gives you options. OKAY – so I just giggled saying that, but it’s true. You are not a slave to it! It doesn’t own you and the moment you think it does, you’ve lost and you’re letting money control your life.
You’re handing YOUR PERSONAL POWER over to money.
Living like that creates depression, anxiety, stress, and a whole host of other problems and diseases in your life!
You know how in the BIBLE it says do not make money your idol, your god? Well, you are doing that when you are letting money RUN your life. You are letting money be your god by default. You are living your life by default. You aren’t making any conscious choices around your money. You are doing that by not VALUING YOURSELF enough to SAVE and INVEST EVERY MONTH!
Here’s another thing, for those of you with wealthy parents waiting on an inheritance, thinking that mommy & daddy are going to take care of everything, I’d like you to save for yourself. Seriously, even if you are waiting on a boat load of cash to roll in (and I know there are LOTS of you out there!) TRUST me future-trust-fund loves, you need to do this for yourself, because you need to feel proud of yourself. YOU DON’T FEEL PROUD of yourself when you receive a gift of money. You feel proud when you work hard, save, and your self-confidence grows like crazy. So to those, stop using this as your crutch, and ditch the rich-parent-inheritance excuse! (Hey, some tough love is needed at times!) People who win the lottery and get huge inheritances usually are broke after 7 years because they don’t feel they deep down deserve it. Don’t let that be you. By saving, and taking care of you, you will feel you deserve it and you won’t end up a sad statistic!
Tony Robbins said on a podcast I was listening to yesterday, if the government raised taxes by 10%-20% you’d b*tch and complain about it, but you’d pay it right?!?! Of course. Because you follow the law, you value NOT going to jail.
Listen Love, why don’t you value yourself that much to save 10%-20%? Why don’t you look in the mirror and say you are worth more than money?
YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN ALL THE RUBIES & DIAMONDS & GOLD IN THE WORLD!
So, I’m going to plead with you to start saving money for yourself because no matter where you are financially, you really are worth it beautiful people!!! Pay yourself first sounds so cliche. But essentially you need to do that. Open up a high-interest e-saving account if you want to start small. (Hint: YES, there is an e-savings account in Canada giving you 2.0% – if you google it, you will find it! And it’s prob NOT a bank you’ve heard of! Start weekly or monthly transfers from your main bank into this account!) I bet you that the minute you do this little step and save money for yourself and create that plan, that you will INSTANTLY feel BETTER! It’s a cup of instant SELF-LOVE & SELF-WORTH – DRINK UP!
Want to make more money? Want to increase your net worth? Want to live the life you deserve? Save more money! Start valuing yourself first. Start loving yourself first. YOU ARE WORTH IT MY LOVE – YOU ARE!
