Hello, Style Classmates! This week let's chat about your deep thoughts on money and how it can hold you back from dressing as the most successful version of yourself 5-years from now (my 5-Year Rule).
I recently read You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincere. It's a game changer, guys. I don't care what you think your relationship with money is like, it can always improve, and mine certainly has. It got me thinking, I wonder how much money mindset is holding people back from styling themselves?
Money is one of the associations one can have when they think about being stylish. Having money, spending money, looking like you have money. And if you have any hesitation about what money can do for you, then you may subconsciously start sabotaging your own closet.
"What if people think I think I'm better than them?"
"What if people think I'm stuck up?"
"What if people assume I'm a bad person?'
All these questions lead back to your own values and beliefs. You might as well be saying, "I think people with money are stuck up and bad." But as Jen Sincero writes, if you like what money can do for you and for the world when applied correctly, then talking shit about people that have it will hold yourself back from getting it. Money isn't going to come to a party where she is being shit talked, y'all!
So, get the book. Read it. Take a hard look at your mindset on money. Now take a hard look at how you've held your style back to fit those money beliefs.
More fun updates about free resources coming out soon and my thoughts on thinking about your future, what you will look like, and your perception of money or looking like you have money - inspired by the book You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero.
