What is your financial thermostat — and why is it so important?

Let's talk about wealth mindset today, shall we?

If you’re in a room with air conditioning on, the temperature in that room is set to stay within a certain range. Let's say you set the temperature range between 68 and 72 degrees F. So the temperature always remains within that range, and the thermostat kicks in every time to ensure it's always within that range.

Human beings also have “thermostats” in many different areas of their lives.

Let's say someone's an introvert and they get into a social situation like a party where they have to talk to a lot of people. If someone's really introverted, after a certain amount of exposure at the party, they just want to get back to having their alone time.

But on the other hand, if someone's an extrovert, they love going to parties and interacting with new people. If they're not being social, their “social thermostat” falls below that range. They need to seek out more social interaction.

You have the same kind of thermostat range when it comes how much money you have. You have unconsciously set a range for the amount you allow into your life.

For this example, let’s focus on how much money you can hang on to…

Some people are really good at making money and always have cash flowing into their lives. They make good money at their job or their business. But because they're not comfortable with having that much money, they always find ways to get rid of it. You can see the financial thermostat in that situation.

Let's say you have $100,000 in your bank account right now and you’re comfortable with that. Then suddenly, you make a lot more money and you suddenly go from $100k up to $180k — way up out of your comfort zone.

You subconsciously find ways to spend it all. You might think, “Well now it's finally time to treat myself to a new car,” or “I think I deserve that dream vacation.” And then when the money’s all gone, you fall back within that comfort range.

On the other hand, let's say you take a big hit and lose a lot of money…

For example, something goes terribly wrong with the stock market and you lose $40,000 in a week. You're not accustomed to having that small of an amount of money, so now you start looking for creative ways to bring in more money to get back up within the $100,000 range.

Most people walking around on the street have a shockingly low financial thermostat. You probably know some people who put everything on credit cards and always have credit card debt. Today they have credit card debt, and in 10 years they’ll still have credit card debt. It just seems natural that they always owe money.

I think your parents and your upbringing have an enormous impact on where it's set. But that doesn't mean you must keep that limited mindset for life — it can be changed.

You financial thermostat can be adjusted first of all by measuring. The moment you start measuring how much money you spend every day, every week, every month, it makes you become aware of your spending habits.

Some people are raised throughout their childhood to feel guilty about being wealthy. So in their minds they attach all these negative beliefs to getting rich. I believe most people think being rich is all about more cash flowing into their lives. But becoming wealthy is actually NOT just about increasing your income. First and foremost, getting rich is all about your financial thermostat.

And to prove it to you, just look at everyone who wins the lottery. Suddenly they have millions of dollars in their life. But the vast majority of them lose it all within just five years.

Ask yourself the following questions:
1. Is your financial thermostat set at the right level so that you can actually be comfortable with money?
2. Can you hang onto your money and overcome the desire to spend it all and get rid of it?

Spend some time today thinking about you’re financial thermostat. And if you answer these questions truthfully, you’ll be well on your way to becoming wealthy.
