I have this mantra, whenever things go wrong in my life.
It’s nothing fancy – I just say to myself over and over, “you got this”.
(In my head, just btw. My coworkers don’t need to hear that every time my computer shuts down or every time a client freaks out).
It always seems to work for me, whether it’s just the kind of meditative process of thinking one thing over and over, or if there really is some kind of magical property to that phrase that makes things turn out for the best.
You might have your own phrase or your own strategy to deal with things when they get crappy, but no matter what you’re dealing with and how you’re dealing with it, you are going to be okay.
It’s so easy to panic and get stressed out about money. Seriously. People don’t talk about it, but everybody has money worries. They’re not always the same worries, of course, but everyone you meet has some kind of money anxiety at some point.
Mine is rooted in the scarcity mentality. I fight this daily.
