19. Why We Never Say “We Can’t Afford That”

19. Why We Never Say “We Can’t Afford That”

Hey guys, Chris and Melissa here! There are so many cliches and sayings in our culture revolving around money, like “We can’t afford that” or “Money is the root of all evil” or even “We’re never going to get ahead” and we get it we have said those exact phrases once or twice in our lives and even when we started making more we leaned towards being negative.  But then we realized that the way we interacted with money would influence how our kids viewed money.  Today we have a conversation about the beliefs and stories we have regarding money, and income and how we can work to balance needs while still growing. We’ve been working on our mindsets for about 10 years now and still have to catch ourselves when we almost say “we can’t afford that”. The amazing thing is, as we started changing our mindsets it gave us opportunities to create more abundance in our lives.  We talk about a moment that changed how Chris viewed time and money, setting both our minds on growing a healthier relationship with money and the impact we could make through it. We’ll share the strategy and steps we take to expand our horizons and create income instead of shutting it down immediately and how this has affected our family for the better. Like we said it is a journey, but if you’re willing to challenge the limiting beliefs that you may hold about money then you can move past the struggle and start to grow a better life for you and your family.
