To be honest, I don’t like Halloween. I do enjoy putting together a costume for my daughter and walking with her as she acquires a bucket full of treats. We even enjoyed carving a pumpkin this year. But deep down, I don’t like Halloween. It gives me the heebie-jeebies. Bats and spiders make me shudder. Halloween decorations freak me out a little bit. I also don’t like things that go bump in the night, that jump out of the corners, or that frighten me.
I really don’t like being afraid.
Fear is something that keeps us from moving forward in the financial aspect of our lives. Fear can hold us back. It may tell us that we are not smart enough to handle a budget or that we can’t research the best savings accounts for our emergency fund. Fear may whisper that we are not responsible enough, so really we shouldn’t have any money. It may also say that selfishness is the motivator for generosity, so why give anything?
Fear does not have to have a voice in your life! If fear is something that is keeping you from advancing forward financially, seek out why fear exists in your life. Sometimes fear comes from a past experience or from an ill-spoken word. You can reject fear and make movement toward accomplishing your goals. You can take an attitude with fear and tell it to take a hike!
Besides bats and ghouls and goblins (oh my!), what are you afraid of?
What steps are you going to take to kick fear aside and win with your finances?
