Is there any emotion more useless than shame? I can’t think of one, especially when it comes to money!
What is money shame, where do we get it, and why is it so difficult to shake off? All good questions and ones a money coach in Las Vegas like me can help you find the answers to. Because only after you lose money shame can you move forward and get yourself into a better financial place.
What’s Money Shame?
It comes in all shapes and forms. It can keep you awake at night and take over your thoughts during the day. Money shame manifests itself in a multitude of nasty ways:
- Spending or budgeting habits that are keeping you in debt
- Lack of savings and living paycheck-to-paycheck
- A bad financial decision that keeps you from getting the most from the money you have
All of these things can give you bad feelings about money…and yourself. They can start limiting your beliefs and give you yucky feelings you’d rather avoid.
Admit Your Mistakes & Move On!
Most money shame is subconscious and, like most habits, can be traced to childhood thought patterns. In a materialistic society, money so often gets equated to love and belonging. If you feel you’re flawed, believe you don’t deserve the money you have or can’t see a way to earn more, you have money shame. The good news is anyone can break free! In my book, “Girl, Get Your $hit Together!” I talk about making great money choices and give you tips on how to become the boss of your finances and life.
How a Money Coach in Las Vegas Can Help
One of the best ways to begin silencing that money shame voice in your head is to admit your mistakes and then use them to make small, incremental changes that lead you to better financial circumstances. Some people are able to do that on their own. Others could do with a little help from a pro.
