Sydney life coaching.
You and Money
Money can be such an emotive issue that it isn’t surprising many of us shy away from dealing with it. We don’t create, much less stick to a budget; we don’t plan for the future; or we don’t set financial goals at all. And then there is maximizing your superannuation and minimizing your tax. Not surprising that we keep our heads in the sand!
There is a theory that we can have three negative emotional responses to money:
- worry either about not having it, often not based on facts, or worry about having it
- self sabotage, spending more than we earn or spending to make ourselves feel better when we are broke
- guilt about having money when others don’t.
The role of a life coach
While your financial advisor is there to help you with managing your money and making sound investments to make your money work for you, what working with a life coach can do for you is help you get clear on your relationship with money.
Money awareness is the first step to financial freedom, as you need to know the truth about your money before making any decisions.
There are several powerful steps that a personal coach can take you through to prepare you for working with your financial advisor, A coach can assist you to clarify your values so that your financial decisions are aligned with these and with your other life aspirations.
Setting financial goals
A coach will help you set inspirational goals in your life, which often include a financial goal or a goal that depends upon having a certain amount of money. Just setting the goal is exciting for many as they have never done it before and it gives them a spark. It is about starting to take charge of your own life, creating your own direction and taking action to get there.
Life coaching provides people with the tools to create strategies and action plans for their financial goals to ensure that they achieve them. It will also help them to look at any patterns of behaviour or habits that could have inhibited their success with money in the past and help them embed new, more effective behaviours.
Do you find it hard to stick to budget?
If you are one of the many people who have never been able to stick to a budget before, maybe it’s worth thinking about seeing a life coach and finding out how to change that behaviour forever. It may not be easy but with your commitment and a coach’s support, it can be done and the rewards are great.
