Declutter Your Mind For a Profitable 2020

Famed author, coach and speaker Martha Beck taught us external clutter reflects internal clutter. One way to see this concept is to look for the room in your home that has the most clutter – is it the kitchen, home office, bedroom, or bathroom?  If your home office is a tad cluttered, let’s be honest, your finances may need a wee bit of attention.

Take a Step Back.  Clear your Mind. Refresh your Perspective.

“The more you celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate” – Oprah

Refresh your financial perspective by reviewing your spending habits.  The best way to do this is to review the actual numbers from your bank statements.  Once you see the reality of how you are spending your money in black and white, you can make some impactful changes.

The start of a new year is the perfect time to review your finances, and more importantly, your financial goals.  Strip away any non-essential services or look for more cost-effective options so you don’t feel like you’re missing out.  If you want some help going through this process Gail Sylvester Mortgages is happy to help you gain perspective and start working towards your financial goals.

Turning Can’t into Can.

“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right” – Henry Ford.

How you think and interact with language concerning your finances will determine how your finances will materialize in the real world.  By constantly reaffirming you can’t achieve your financial goals you create a scarcity mindset.  A scarcity mindset is harmful as it pushes your goals out of reach.  In 2020, permit yourself to believe you CAN. You CAN save money making $40K a year or $400 a year.  It isn’t the money you make that ensures your successful – it’s what you do with it that matters.  Review these seven mindset shifts that will help you reach your goals in 2020

Comparing is NEVER Productive.

“Stay in your lane.  Comparison kills creativity and joy.” – Brene Brown

If you’ve struggled in the past with financial clarity, now is the time to forgive yourself.  A crippling mistake is to compare your situation to those around you. Another person’s success or failure has zero correlation to your own.  There are too many variables when it comes to finances to ever truly know another person’s situation, therefore, there is no value in comparing.  Use your energy to take care of yourself and build wealth at your own pace.  That is the most productive approach you can take for a profitable 2020.

At Gail Sylvester Mortgages, giving our clients peace of mind and a clear financial plan is what we are all about. Let’s bring clarity to your world this year with a plan that reflects your future.  Contact us today for a financial assessment to get started.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
