Change Your Mindset On Budgets

What thoughts or emotions come to mind when you think about creating a budget? Frustrating? Horrible? Painful? I’d rather go to the dentist for a root canal? This used to be my mindset on budgeting so I completely understand every negative emotion that you feel. However, when I decided to change my financial future I knew that the key to this was a budget. In order to actually create a budget and follow through with it, I had to change how I viewed a budget and I’m here to tell you that you can too.

If you want to change your mindset on budgeting you first have to realize what a budget really does. It is not meant to be restrictive or remind you that there is never enough. What a budget really does is the opposite. A budget allows you to actually decide where it wants to go instead of wondering where it went! This is HUGE! A budget gives you control. A budget allows you to manage your money and ultimately fund dreams. I don’t know about you but I would much rather fund my dreams instead of going to the dentist for a root canal.

Instead of looking at a budget as a worthless process, start to think about what a budget can do for you. Write down your dreams. Do they cost money? How are you going to get that money? A budget. Once you start looking at a budget as a way to make your dreams a reality, any negative thoughts will become a thing of the past.
