Mental Toughness and Money

By

In a perfect world, we would turn our money over to professional money managers and forget about it. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, and if you don’t watch your money, you may not have any when you need it. Mental Toughness is about taking responsibility for your life, and that includes your money. If the great recession of 2008 taught us anything, it’s how fast your wealth can evaporate if you’re not careful—and even when you ARE careful! Watch this short video  (2 min) I recorded on this subject and I’ll look forward to your comments.

  1. Hi Steve, I watched Killing Stress You Soon Will be Dead Video. wow!!!! talk about ” taking it right between the eyes reality check” It was so hard not to feel uneasy watching the video; however, every word you said is true regarding our imortality.
    That said, I am living every day with appreciation and peace. No more stress for me, period. That includes divorcing myself from people, places and things who promote stress.

    Hi Steve,
    Regarding your blog on mental toughness & money:
    The last month I have been giving serious thought
    about this exact topic. Your video blog was as if you
    were reading my mind. LOL!
    Two quick questions: The World Money Show, is
    that an exclusive convention to Orlando, or does it
    go from city to city? Also, on your blog you encouraged
    attending financial such as the World Money one. How
    would I find out about such seminars/ conventions?
    What would they be listed as? I hope my email is clear.
    Any help appreciated. Thanks Steve.

    Warmest Regards,

    I hear this point well. The other thing I truly find ‘an issue’ with those of whom take responsibility for their financial lives… is the fact that “time value’, or in other words the manner in which one truly finds where their TIME is the most valuable (not just including money, but other deep wants that a human may have to fulfill – especially in relationship contexts- is often the real ‘deal breaker or maker’ in terms of one finding the most happiness. So I would be apt to hear what human being does not deal with the sacrifices and compromises in a ‘most happy’ and fulfilling way. To me this topic is the real ‘pot of gold’ to deal with in terms of living a good life. Thanks. Max

    I admire your courage, Steve, for revealing the blunt truth about money managers
    and opening our eyes to the sad facts of risking loss of investments if we don’t
    go about this with a heightened sense of responsibility. No one cares about us and our belongings like we do and this holds true in all walks of life : health, wealth and happiness – which is why personal responsibility is as necessary for our prosperity as the air we breathe!! Thank you again.

    Absolutely true! I also wrote a book about it on Amazon. I’ve been looking after my money since age 5. “Find A Penny: A Financial Journey” reflects what can and does happen in reality with money. I still am learning every day.
