Trevor Dale talks about the real reason behind money being a major reason that couples get divorced. It isn’t because of money itself.
It is from a lack of understanding of yourself first. Then once you are absolutely clear about what you want beyond a level that you currently see capable, then you can communicate this with your spouse.
The fundamental problem of not communicating properly but not communicating properly with yourself first… and then with your spouse second.
People argue for a number of reasons and I suggest that you start to get better at arguing. Get better at communicating. Get better at listening. Get better and understanding.
A great book that helps is “Crucial Conversations” by Patterson, Grenny, McMillan and Switzler.
It’s absolutely fantastic and has helped me at home, work, with friends and even organizing my own thoughts.
Money doesn’t have to be complicated, it just needs to be clear.
You see, without a clear goal, then a financial plan is useless. Without a financial plan, an investment strategy is useless. Without an investment strategy, it doesn’t matter how much money you have.
Your current situation is a reflection of your clarity and the life you live is the product of this. The more clear you can get, the more specific the decisions you make, the greater the impact those decisions will have.
Know yourself first, communicate effectively with your spouse to get what you BOTH want out of life and design the future of what you were destined to do.
It doesn’t matter what stage of life you’re in. These principles must guide your life design:
- Clarity is Key
- Specificity Over Generality
- Fact Based Decisions
- Offence vs Defence
