Description
For most people, money worries are a daily concern. Yet, we continue to spend on things that don't matter and that do not add to our financial security or personal happiness. Often we bring home things we don't need, can't afford, and don't have room for, but still we can't seem to stop buying. Peter Walsh knows that debt and money issues are a powerful form of clutter that can overwhelm you. In Lighten Up, he offers a plan to help you escape from the emotional chaos that financial insecurity causes in your life.
Peter takes a different approach in Lighten Up than most other books about financial security. Instead of telling you to cut out the triple latte to save you so many hundreds of dollars a year, he starts by asking what's really important in your life. He does this with a series of simple yet comprehensive "life audits" designed to help you clearly understand the difference between the things you think you must have and the things that really will contribute to a happier life. These unique audits challenge you with questions about everything from your possessions and financial statements to your thoughts, goals, use of time and energy, and even your innermost sources of tension. Peter then shows you how to use what you've learned about yourself so that you can embrace healthy change and set a new path for the future, coming to accept that living on less can feel-and be-so much richer.
In Lighten Up you will learn how to:
Change the way you and your family measure happiness.
Face your financial situation and set realistic priorities.
Create space for what really matters.
Plan realistically for financial and emotional security.
Be happier with less.
Working through Peter's plan, you will learn how to fulfill the vision you have to achieve a balance in your life that brings you happiness. With Lighten Up, you will find the courage to choose a richly rewarding life over the mindless pursuit of more meaningless stuff. Book jacket.
