keys to your financial breakthrough: a new way of thinking

Happy New Year! God is leading me to kick off the New Year by talking about your financial breakthrough.

Just the other day I thought back to the days when I worked temporary job assignments exclusively. I needed to build up my skills and moving around from company to company worked very well for me. My co-workers were more than willing to show me how to use the current software programs. When the assignment was over I’d go back to my agency and test on these programs. I scored well and qualified to be sent on higher paying jobs. So, let me say that the first key to your financial breakthrough is to be willing to learn.

Now before you say you don’t have time or money to go back to school, let me say that all education does not have to be in a classroom. Read a book or take an online class. Find out if your city offers free training around town. Some schools are willing to work with your schedule. So, do some research. You might be surprised at what you discover.  

Whenever I’d finish an assignment, I would call the agency and ask to be sent to another. When something in my skill group came up, the agency would call me with all the details. However, sometimes I wouldn’t get a call right away and I have to admit I’d get concerned. I preferred to be kept busy for one thing and I really needed the money. I was in a certain pay range but I was willing to take less. I’d think “Lord, some money is better than no money.” But that wasn’t how the Lord saw it. Every time I’d accept an assignment lower than my pay range, that opportunity would fall through. I felt the Lord telling me to always aim for His best. That’s another key to your financial breakthrough. Sure, you have to crawl before you can walk but sometimes it’s time to walk and you are still crawling!

Sometimes it’s not about how much you make, but what you do with what you have. Wasteful spending habits will eat up your money fast. There was a time when I would drop $10 – $15 each day for magazines, snacks or gum. I came to a place financially when I couldn’t do this anymore and clearly saw how wasteful I’d been. So, here’s the third key to your financial breakthrough: Go through your current spending habits and cut out the waste. 

Are you telling yourself you don’t make enough money to save? That’s not true. Here’s your fourth key to financial breakthrough: stop telling yourself you can’t save and save whatever you can no matter how small the amount.  I bet you could save $5 each week. That’s not a lot of money but it’s something. Saving that amount of money will help you get in the habit of saving. I think you’d get excited as you see your savings grow and you would find ways to save more money. 

I truly believe that God wants you to experience a financial breakthrough this year. The Bible promises abundance. But the Lord wants you to be a good steward over what He has already given you. As you develop the new habits I’ve outlined above, I believe God will trust you with more because He knows you’ll use wisdom.

I am standing with you for your financial breakthrough.
