5 simple principles to master money. (And why they’re so hard to implement in real life.) Here’s what to do about it.

Reader,

Mastering money is simple.

  1. Know what you make and what you spend
  2. Make more than you spend
  3. Save a portion of the surplus so you don’t go into debt for ‘emergencies’
  4. Invest the rest of the surplus to grow wealth
  5. Leverage compounding over time to maximize your investment returns

5 simple principles to be wealthy and financially free.

Right?

Nah.

Most people are struggling with most, if not all of these ‘simple’ principles.

That’s why most people aren’t financially free.

You know why?

The process of executing these 5 principles is fraught with strong emotions that pull, push, or keep us stuck.

How many people stick with tracking what they make and spend?

How many people are stuck spending more than they make?

How many people don’t have surplus savings to deal with emergencies?

How many people still have any surplus left after taking care of everything they need to live to still invest?

How many people leave their investment alone to compound over decades instead of feeling compelled to touch it to make a quick buck?

Yup.

Money is totally emotional.

Mastering money is simple, but far from easy.

Until you get a handle on those emotions

that make you do things you know you shouldn’t with your money

but still can’t seem to help it.

Calming yourself during the process of implementing these 5 simple principles as you go through life,

is how you can finally be a master of your money, rather than a slave to it.

The first step to getting a handle on how you feel about money is to notice what those sensations feel like.

The easiest way to do this is to pay attention to where in your body it shows up.

Then name it and give it a color, texture, or smell.

Emotions are intangible, giving them form helps us wrap our heads around it.

Now that you can see it, we can deal with it.

To release its hold on you, you have to change the way you relate to it.

This is what I help women do.

By using a framework and system I've used to go from being stressed out about money,

Hello Reader, I failed the past 2 weeks I'm supposed to send my newsletters out every week. I missed the past couple of weeks because of the Lunar New Year last week and because I completely forgot the week before that because I was so busy. You might say it's just a newsletter. But to me, it's a symbol of not doing what I told myself I'd do. I have I tendency to be quite hard on myself when I mess up. I used to beat myself up whenever I failed. Now, I allow myself to feel bad about it for a...

Reader, Despite being highly educated, coming from a well-to-do upper-middle-class family, never struggling with money growing up, my financial life was a mess as an adult. I was in a 6-figure business debt and barely making enough to cover my bills. On the outside, I looked successful. I went to good schools, came from a highly functional family, and everyone around me was upper middle class. My friends were lawyers, doctors, and heads of departments. I had a job that objectively paid...

Reader, I'm reading Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence now. I'm going 'aha' at every other chapter... My bias toward purely rational and logical thought was being challenged on every page I turned. But it was also confirming what I discovered recently. And specifically, as it relates to money. What I've read up to this point has confirmed what I've experienced with money in my life. Our emotions are equally important when it comes to decision-making and the actions we take. Yes, even...
