Money Mindset Quotes: Discover What Money Loves

Money Mindset Quotes: Discover what money really loves <3 #onlinebusiness #entrepreneur #womeninbiz

I’m about to share with you my favorite money mindset quotes, but they’re not your typical money mindset stuff.

If you love money, well we’re about to flip the table and talk about what money loves…

Money Mindset QuotesMoney can be a tricky topic for many of us: we all seem to have our own money issues.

We can get tangled up in our past relationship with money, not having it, not saving it, or whatever your story is.

But today I want us to take a different look at money.

Instead of trying to fix our relationship with money, why not look at things from money’s perspective? Because I guarantee that money itself is a lot less emotional and a lot more unbiased.

Money Mindset Quotes: Three Things I’ve Learned About Money

There are three things that I’ve learned about money over the last few years:

Money loves clarity.

Money loves speed.

Money loves to circulate.

Let’s take a look at each one and see how you can use these realizations to your benefit.

1. Money loves clarity.

What can you do in your life and business to create more clarity, especially as it relates to money?

For example, could you sort out all of your different bank accounts so you know exactly where all of your money is at all times? This is freeing in and of itself, and it also gives you a sense of ease.

Beyond that, can you make it more clear how people can give you money? Are your products and services really clear and easy to sign up for, or do you make people jump through hoops to buy from you?

Do people know exactly what you do, or are they confused about your business? The more clearly you can explain how you can help people, the easier it is for people to take you up on it and hire or buy from you.

Similarly, if you have a complicated payment process with 5 steps and plenty of hurdles, that keeps people and their money at bay.

2. Money loves speed.

I’m not sure exactly why this is true, but there’s something about money that loves to be in motion… and it feels like the faster, the better.

If you’re speaking to an interested customer or client, give them everything they need to say yes right on the spot. Don’t say you’ll get back to them next week. Don’t let them sit on the fence, give them all the clarity they need to say yes or no, and move on.

When I was doing a lot of web design, I would speak to many interested potential clients on the phone. Every now and then, I’d speak to someone on a Friday afternoon and wait until Monday to get back to them.

Those deals never worked out. Money has a sense of urgency built into it. It wants to make things happen.

If you drag things out, slow things down, or wait to see how things will turn, you’ll usually end up with no money exchanging hands.

That’s why launches work: they have a built-in sense of urgency. It’s also why you don’t want people to be confused or to think things over for too long, because if someone is waffling then they’re going to pass.

3. Money loves to circulate consciously.

This follows from the previous point, there’s something powerful about money wanting to feel useful.

If you’ve got money hidden under your bed, and it doesn’t have a purpose, then this money feels like it’s not being used to its full extent.

Now that doesn’t mean you can’t have savings, in fact I do think money likes to be saved. But only if you’re saving money with a strong intention behind it, if you’ve earmarked it for something.

If you think back: every time you’ve wanted to save money for something specific, you were able to do it. There was money there for it. Whether it was buying a dress for that special occasion, saving for a down payment on a house, or investing in a program.

That’s because you gave money a job, even if it was to accumulate, it was for a specific reason.

Money also loves to change hands. This means it loves to be spent, but just like saving if you’re not being intentional about your spending money won’t be there for it.

When you’re investing money into your business, it tends to come back to you. When you’re investing into yourself, it tends to come back.

When you allow it to leak out in less intentional ways, it will find its way into other people’s lives.

The distinction is that money goes where it is told to go, but if you don’t care or don’t consciously consider where you want it to go, it will leak out unconsciously.

Bringing awareness to how you circulate your money is another part of the clarity piece, and it ensures you’re making money feel welcome to circulate back to you.

    I couldn’t agree more, Nathalie! I’ve recently gotten some major clarity on both my financial situation and my mission as a business owner, and I already feel like I’m wealthier :) Thank you for this great reminder!



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 11:48 am

      That’s awesome Nicole! I love that it’s shifted your feelings toward wealthier already. :) Woohooo!



  2. Jacqueline on April 23, 2014 at 11:35 am

    Love the summary graphic up top.



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 11:48 am

      Yay thank you so much Jacqueline, feel free to pin it or share it :)



  3. Jessica on April 23, 2014 at 11:36 am

    I like what Seth Godin says about how money is a tool – not a burden. If we think of money as something we can learn to use wisely – a skill we can acquire to do our best work – then it should come back to us in droves.



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 11:49 am

      Yes, that Seth Goden is one smart cookie. :) I totally agree Jessica!



  4. Deb on April 23, 2014 at 11:47 am

    I totally agree that money needs a reason to be. And, most certainly if there is a purpose behind it, I have seen it grow. As Marie Forleo says, “There’s more where that came from!” I think if more people understood that money is a tool to be used much like a hammer or saw, then perhaps it could be used for higher, more meaningful purposes.



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:34 pm

      Absolutely Deb! Money is a tool and if we don’t let ourselves get so emotional about it, it makes it easier to see it for what it is. :)



  5. claire stone on April 23, 2014 at 11:49 am

    Brilliant – quite a few aha’s going on in my head right now – especially about money liking a purpose – it’s sooooo true.

    Thank you!



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:34 pm

      Yay for ahas Claire! That makes me really happy :)



  6. Summer Howard on April 23, 2014 at 11:57 am

    Excellent reminder to spend and SAVE with intention. With purpose. And the big AHA for me was $ loves speed. We all know when the decision is right or not and it doesn’t have to be so darn hard! Trusting our instincts to buy, sell, invest is the key here. Thanks, Nathalie!!



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:36 pm

      Yes absolutely Summer! I love what you mentioned about trusting our instincts – it’s the overthinking that will get ya. I’ve definitely found that to be true, and there are of course some things that you want to consider well before doing but usually your first gut reaction turns out to be right. :)



  7. Naomi on April 23, 2014 at 11:58 am

    We recently sat down to put #1 into practice. Putting ALL of the accounts into a spreadsheet, and one that we update and track ONCE a week, EVERY week has been a game changer! Just knowing where it’s at … and giving it a name (i.e. budgeting with YNAB) has been crucial. Great piece.



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:36 pm

      That is AWESOME Naomi! I’m a huge fan of YNAB too, so happy it’s been working out for you. :)



  8. Deirdre on April 23, 2014 at 12:14 pm

    This is brilliant! I agree with all of these points you’ve made because I’ve experienced them firsthand.

    “Money loves to circulate. It likes to have a purpose.”

    Absolutely! Whenever I’ve set the intention to have a specific amount of money for something that I’ve wanted, the money always showed up in ways both expected and unexpected.

    P.S.
    Nathalie, I’m really enjoying your videos! :-)



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:37 pm

      Aww thank you Deirdre! It’s kind of amazing how this intention stuff works though right? I love it, and happy you can corroborate with your life experience too. :)



  9. Candace Hartsfield on April 23, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    Thank you Nathalie for a great post! LOVE this so much, especially idea #3!



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:37 pm

      Thank you Candace, it’s so cool to see which one resonates most with everyone. :)



  10. Jeannie on April 23, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    Nathalie, great insight and quotes that I totally agree with. Now I need to harness it – I am currently generating more money than I ever have in my life and seem to be going nowhere with it. The “clarity” quote I think is where I am hung up.



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:38 pm

      I hear you Jeannie. I definitely had a moment in time where I was earning a lot but not keeping it, and I think that’s definitely a key piece. :)



  11. Monicka on April 23, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    Love your points Nathalie. This is a very original and useful way to look at things I alive all that you do and your latest podcast and these short videos, are a true delight! I consider my self lucky to have discovered you :-)



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:39 pm

      Aww that makes me so happy Monicka, I’m so glad you’re enjoying all the podcasts/videos and thank you for your sweet comment! :)



  12. Karen Pierce on April 23, 2014 at 1:55 pm

    Natalie!
    Very interesting subject and great video! This and the last videos were super interesting and very useful! Thank you so so much! :-)



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:39 pm

      Thank you so much Karen! I’m so glad these are “landing” well – you never quite know when you’re recording them. ;)



  13. Elizabeth Blue on April 23, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    I loved this Nathalie! Especially the simplicity of “Money loves clarity.” And how money loves to be intentionally spent.



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:41 pm

      Yay Elizabeth! It’s funny how sometimes the simplest things ring true and help so much? :)



  14. Anastasia on April 23, 2014 at 2:14 pm

    What struck me most is the part about letting money leak out without any strong intention. I love it!
    Sometimes investing into your business is also taking a risk but this idea can really help identify the moments when I am splurging and not really thinking about why I’m parting with my money.



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:47 pm

      Absolutely Anastasia! We can definitely make decisions out of fear or distraction/boredom/excitement, and while sometimes that’s exactly what we need – other times it’s not in line with our bigger dreams. :)



  15. Nika on April 23, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    Hey Natalie,
    congrats on an awesome video, I think money is a tough subject and I think this video make some solid points.

    wish you the best,
    xo Nika



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:47 pm

      Thanks so much Nika! I’m so glad we’re able to dive into this topic and not get too stuck on our “money stuff” :)



  16. Julia Barnickle on April 23, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    Yes indeed, Nathalie – money loves clarity! That’s been my stumbling block in the past – and to a certain extent even now. I’m clear about what I offer, but I’m not sure my followers are! Definitely something to work on still. Thank you!



    • Nathalie Lussier on April 23, 2014 at 9:48 pm

      You’re so welcome Julia – and let us know how we can help you get more clear. :) It’s definitely a continuing process for all of us!



  17. Fran on April 24, 2014 at 4:58 am

    Great clarity Nathalie! Thanks :) I resonated with the all 3 points. Personally, i need to make it REALLY easy & clear for my customers to buy, by simplifying my website. And I need to create a sense of urgency with doing a proper launch for a change – i always cower away from this, so scary! :/ You’re so awesome Nathalie, thx for doing what you do!



  18. Vikash Kumar on May 22, 2014 at 9:03 am

    Wow! What an article about money!
    However, I feel, It takes time to remember while we do our normal business lives….But if we just keep remind ourselves regularly. We can get to the core of this money factor.
    Keep up the good work!



  19. Llyane @FrenchOnSkype on May 8, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    So true, Nathalie, every time I keep my eyes on the budget sheet, things go right in my business (and life).



  20. Ray Higdon on November 9, 2015 at 7:49 am

    Great article, appreciate it
