Money has an inherent way of pulling emotional strings towards extremes. This means that emotional highs and lows are often made better or worse when money is involved. Unfortunately, when income goes down, it often leads to a lack of motivation, and lack of motivation only further continues a downward emotional spiral.
It’s important to be proactive when income decreases. Understand that adjustments may be needed, and be positive to keep your emotional well-being intact.
Motivation Tips for Clearing the Hump
To stay motivated in periods of income imbalance or even crisis, take time to reassess your budget down to the smallest expenditure. Make adjustments and sacrifices wherever necessary.
Remember, Stay Positive
As tough as times may seem in the moment, life goes on when income takes a hit. Regardless of your subjective situation, day-to-day activity will go on, and your attitude affects everything. Productivity systems rarely take emotions into account, which means even the most well-intentioned plans for reaching financial equilibrium again can be sidetracked by your emotional state. Stay positive.
