Taking the first steps
Imagine a life where you control your money rather than your money controlling you. Don't believe your money is in control? do you find yourself wrestling with credit card debt you can't pay off, or a car you can't afford, or a house worth less than you owe on it? 


Do you notice the ''happiness'' of buying something online becoming more and more of a habit? Here are some steps you'll be able to take to start considering how to to|a way to} have a healthier relationship with money and realize a more openhearted way of living:

1. Evaluate
First, take a glance at your current relationship with money. You can use an online assessment tool like the New money mindset Assessment tool . You'll get four scores; Each score measures one aspect of your relationship with money. Or just take some time to look at your habits and think about the role of money in your life.

2. Give Next, attempt adding more ''good stuff'' to your life. By that I don’t mean another round of spending! I'm talking about leading with generosity grounded in grace. Rather than putting all of your energy into cutting, concentrate on giving. If you're stingy, like I am, trytipping alittle extra for services, or shopping for the nicer gift that you simply usually wouldn't.

And it doesn't ought to be money. Send a thank youemail to at least one person on a daily basis, every day for a week; pay someone an unexpected compliment; spend longer listening to someone. Or sign up for a volunteer shift. After youchoose to live generously, you break your own persistent need for more.

3. Shrink the change
Another approach is what the Heath brothers (Chip and Dan Heath, Switch: A way to change Things when change is difficult ) call ''Shrink the change.''

Take housecleaning, for instance. If you tell yourself you have to clean the entirehouse, the Heath brothers recommend you might never get started. However if you clean for 10 minutes and then stop, they might say that's a success, just to get started.

Try applying that idea to money. If saving 100% more each month feels out of reach, start with one percent more than you save right now. Aim to increase by one percent every 3 to 6 months until you reach your goal. By creating the goal easily attainable, you'll be able to get yourself started.
