I am a work in progress when it comes to my money mindset. I am on a teacher’s income functioning as a single mom. Although very happily married, if you did not know, we do not live together (long story), and we do not share our incomes. At work, the people I work the closest with are married and live on 2 incomes. My parents and cousins are all super successful. I am super proud of them. They have worked hard to get where they are. They also chose different career paths, and had I done the same, I too, could be doubling what I make now, if not tripling it. I have had to work on my mindset because at times, I have gotten very negative about it. It’s totally on me. I am the only one who controls my thoughts, so I am fully to blame for any negativity that I have had towards money. It is very easy for me to get down on myself when I see people at work going out to lunch together and I never can. I rarely buy new clothes, my roots are showing most of the time, and my nails are never manicured professionally. I could keep going, but I, like I said, have changed my money mindset. I’m only telling you some of my negative thoughts so you can see how changing my mindset of money has changed. I was already a few years in as far as changing my mindset about money, but after reading this book, I feel myself changing even more.
