When it comes to money, we all know what our ideal financial situation looks like. Whether you’re there yet or not, you may find that you make decisions or you cast assumptions that can affect not only your situation as you know it, but the future too. So whether you’re struggling right now or you feel flush, here’s what not to do about your current financial situation.
Believe It’s Set In Stone
Don’t think that where you are now is where you’ll always be. You may not be doing so well, but a positive mindset and some hard work can change that. At the same time, don’t take your good situation for granted, as it can all go away quicker than you think. So make sure you stay grateful for what you have, no matter how much that is.
Take Dangerous Risks
Calculated risks? Sure. Go for them. If you’ve saved and researched and you’ve made a set financial decision, then go for it. But don’t blow your money when you have no idea if you’re going to get a good return on it. Even if you’re doing well, you may not be before long if you take your current financial status for granted and take a dangerous risk.
Spend Outside Of Your Means
This one’s a no-brainer. But whether you’re doing well or not, keep your spending within your means. When you start to get into debt, you could end up like one of the biggest losers in the infographic below.
