Growing up in the 80’s, success equated a lot of money. Having more things: the bigger house, fancy cars, designer clothes and more… Remember the quote from Gordon Gekko “Greed is Good”? I mean that pretty much sums up the 80’s…
Not for me…
In high school I bought 2nd hand clothes and created my own style.
Don’t get me wrong… I like nice things… but I don’t need to showcase them as a sign of my success.
Because of growing up in the 80’s in a family that I saw struggle to pay the bills on several occasions, my mindset about money was not great and that mindset followed me into my adulthood. And guess what- I believe it has held me back from living my optimized life so I am reading books and researching other information to help me change my money mindset.
Because guess what - “Success is not what you have, but who you are.” Bo Bennett
So I am working on that…
Because in 5 years I would love to have my debt paid off.
I would love to have the freedom and flexibility to plan my own days.
That is what success looks like to me.
But it starts in the mind.
So what does success look like for you?
