‘7ups’ for your finances in 2013

Lifestyle management of your finances is the art and science that deals with your belief system and thoughts about money as well as how you live your life and manage your finances. The underlying challenge that most people have with their finances is that they see money as distinctly separate from the rest of their life. This is the beginning of all money troubles. Money is not a separate entity that you only have to manage when you notice the reserves going down. It is a part of you and you have to integrate it into your life and lifestyle. The way you spend your money tells a lot about you, who you are and what you value. If you are gonna do better this year you must treat your money issues like lifestyle issues and handle it as you live your life…

This is the first ‘up’ in the ‘7up’. This first stage is crucial: You must wake up from your slumber. Evaluate and review. Take stock. Review your past year. What do you want this year? What exactly is most important to you and what will it take to adequately get there? What habits will you cultivate and which ones will you stop? What worked? What didn’t? Evaluate what worked. How did you plan for it? What particular actions steps did you take that got you there? What did not work? Was it a goal or a wish? Did you plan for it? Did you believe it was possible for you to achieve it? Were you motivated to pursue that goal? You have been doing the same thing over and over again all these years and it has not been working. Try something new.

Money is a tool. The first step for learning how to use it successfully as a tool is to figure out what exactly you wish to build with that tool. What really matters in your life? What are your values? No matter who you are and where you are, we all live our lives according to certain values. These values actually influence our lifestyle. We may say our values are lofty and all that but for you to really know what you value, look at your lifestyle and your finances… it tells a lot about you. There is a difference between what you truly value and what you say your value is…Get your values right. Reduce the disparity between the values you want to have and the values you actually have. Once you do that your lifestyle and spending will be in line with what your value.
What goals do you have right now and for the year? The intent is to define your goals in direct harmony with your core values. What are your goals? What specific financial goals do you want to achieve in 2013? Are they written down? Do they motivate you to action? Are they S.M.A.R.T.? Remember, no matter how S.M.A.R.T. your goals are that can’t get you the goals, you have to work at it…
