Hi! I’m Pamela Plick. I help purpose-driven women to overcome feeling anxious, overwhelmed or stuck related to their personal relationship with money so they can become confident, achieve peace of mind, financial freedom and impact without fear. I do this through my signature programs and services, events and community.
Here are 5 ways to take “inspired action”:
Create an Intentional Relationship with Your Money
The first step in taking inspired action around your money is creating an intentional relationship with it. This means taking the time to really think about your values and beliefs around money, and understanding why you manage your finances the way you do. What are your goals for the year? What does financial success look like for you? It also means being honest about any blocks or limiting beliefs that may be holding you back from achieving financial freedom. Once you have a clear picture of where you want to go, you can use this understanding to create an action plan that reflects these intentions.
Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is
The next step is figuring out how to align your actions with your intentions. This means investing your money into things that bring meaning and joy into your life—such as causes or organizations that are close to your heart—and cutting out those expenses that add little value (if any). For example, if one of your intentions is to save more money this year, then put a portion of each paycheck towards a savings account instead of spending it on something unnecessary. Or if one of your values is helping others in need, then consider donating part of each month’s income towards a charity or nonprofit organization whose mission resonates with yours.
Make Smart Decisions
Finally, make sure that every decision related to money is well thought-out and aligns with both short-term and long-term goals. Ask yourself questions like “What will this purchase allow me to do? Is there another option that might provide better value? Is this purchase necessary right now?” These types of questions will help ensure that every financial decision helps move you closer towards achieving financial freedom rather than further away from it.
Celebrate each accomplishment, no matter how small it may seem
Every step towards financial freedom is a victory, and it’s important to celebrate each accomplishment along the way. Whether you have saved an extra $10 this week or achieved your goal of saving $5,000 in a year ahead of schedule, acknowledging and celebrating these successes can help keep you motivated on the journey towards achieving your financial goals.
Taking the time to recognize each milestone will also provide a sense of satisfaction that comes from knowing that all your hard work has paid off. Additionally, celebrating even small wins can be just as beneficial in terms of boosting motivation and morale; so don’t forget to give yourself credit for every positive action taken!
Stay motivated by keeping your eye on the big picture.
At times, it can be difficult to stay motivated and focused on the bigger financial picture. That’s why it’s important to remind yourself of all your long-term goals and the progress you are making towards achieving them. Take some time each day or week to review your budget and savings plan—this way, you’ll be able to see how you’re doing and what small changes or adjustments may be needed to help keep you on track. Additionally, look for sources of inspiration that can help ensure your financial success, such as reading up on the latest personal finance tips or speaking with a financial advisor about your plans. By reminding yourself of your long-term goals and taking action towards achieving them, you will be able to stay motivated while making your financial dreams a reality.
The ultimate goal is financial freedom, so keep it in sight.
Taking inspired action around our money requires us as purposeful women business owners and professionals to create an intentional relationship with our finances—one built on honesty, intentionality, and clarity around our values and goals—and then putting our money where our heart is by investing into things (or people) we care about most while making smart decisions about how we spend our hard-earned cash along the way. With these steps in mind, you can take control of your finances and set yourself up for a successful financial future.
