Money issues that can cause stress and the solutions to help.

The following are some great quotes that help me, when I start to worry.

1."Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen [pounds] nineteen [shillings] and six [pence], result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery." Charles Dickens, David Copperfield

Solution:  1. Make more money, 2. Spend less money, 3. Do both 1 & 2.

2. “This would be a much better world if more married couples were as deeply in love as they are in debt.” Earl Wilson.

Solution: If you are in debt your most important priority is to ensure your debts are manageable and not impacting your choices, quality of life, relationships and aspirations.


3. "Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship" Benjamin Franklin

Solution: Ensure your entire financial house is in order. Know where everything is, how much you have and upcoming financial expenses.

4. “Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to. Alice: I don't much care where. The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go". Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Solution: Rediscover and document your core value. Know where you you want to get to and where you are now. Tailor your activity steps, choices and game plan to achieve your financial goals in alignment with your core values. Then do the work to make it a reality, with small optimizing changes along the way.

5. “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” Dalai Lama

Solution: Delegate the activities that others can do better and do only the activities that add value to your life eg. exercise more, invest time in building deeper relationships, study and improve your knowledge, experience more, align your career to your "why". Doing so increases your chance of success simply because you will be happier, more present, have more time and doing more of the activities that directly benefit you.

You should always seek independent financial advice when it comes to choices about your personal finances. This is one area of your life where it’s worth paying for it to be done right.
