Sounds weird, financial nutrition? You could say financial health. To me, financial nutrition is what produces financial health. I believe that financial nutrition is making those decisions that are good for your finances, just as physical nutrition is eating foods that are good for your physical health. Financial nutrition is interrelated to your Spiritual, physical and mental and emotional health.
Financial nutrition can be different for different people depending on what financial goals they have, their life circumstances and personality. I believe that some of the healthy financial nutrition ingredients are self-esteem, confidence and a healthy attitude of having good financial health. The rest kind of falls into those choices we make along the way, sometimes a little good fortune and often times, perseverance.
Healthy Financial Nutrition Begins With A Good Foundation
Feeding yourself healthy financial nutrition involves having a good self-esteem and believing that you are worthy and are responsible with your good financial health. It is also believing in yourself and being confident that you can accomplish your financial goals for yourself and your family.
One thing that gets in the way for many is their unhealthy attitude toward money. Some idolize it to the point of letting it control them, even leading to acquire it in dishonest ways. Many try to gain it to increase their deficient self-esteem, hoping it will somehow magically give them value.
On the reverse side of things, there are those who live in lack due to wrongly thinking money is bad. Money is just money, neither good or bad on its own. What one does with it could be good or bad, that’s one’s choice. Ahhhh! That’s where the trouble can come, yes?
Simply The Facts Of Financial Nutrition
The fact of the matter is that we all have bills that need to be paid and expenses of life. Past that though, money can do incredible good when in the right hands. We can give to our church, we can provide for the needs of our family, we can save adequately for retirement, we can help others in numerous ways or use some of it for our mental/emotional nutrition by simply having some fun, etc, etc. I am sure you have your own list.
What’s Your Financial Nutrition?
So, financial nutrition is kind of individualized, but in coming weeks, we are going to try to touch on some of the main points that we feel can help people with financial nutrition and ultimately good financial health. The work and discovery though will obviously rest with each individual as they seek to improve their daily financial nutrition.
