Goodbye to the taboo: let’s talk about money
In our society, it is not well seen to bring up economic issues: for a matter of culture and education, it is not appropriate to ask anyone how much they earn or talk openly about our debts. They are, however, limiting beliefs that further aggravate our deficient financial training. Not talking about these issues makes them even more thorny and opaque. If the losing streak has to do with economic issues, it is necessary to talk about them to find ways of solution. Preferably with an expert in the field, such as consultants and coaches independent. Lack of financial training is the root of many problems and bad decisions.
Learning is important, but also unlearning
Our brain seeks to save energy to the maximum that is why we create so many habits, because they allow us to go on “automatic pilot”. However, sometimes, especially when we are not going through a good time, it is convenient to force the brain to take new paths and leave behind old ingrained habits that have not worked for us. And what should be unlearned? All those behaviors that are thieves of happiness: focus our happiness on external elements (money, material goods, status …); give space to negative thoughts repeatedly; being addicted to toxic emotions (anger, sadness, victimhood….); give your power to others, compare ourselves, complain …
It helps to persist when the expected result is not obtained and not to give up after mistakes, while repeating to ourselves that we have bad luck and that everything will go wrong, leads to discouragement and fear of even trying. The good news is that 80% of people are predisposed to optimism (even in tough times like these).
Shawn Anchor, author of “Happiness as Advantage” proposes some exercises available to everyone to train you: simple things work like practicing generosity and gratitude daily, spending time on what we do well (cooking, fixing things, playing chess…), investing more in experiences and less in material objects, or simply granting ourselves permission to dream. Shawn explains how a study found that just thinking about watching their favorite movie increased people’s endorphin levels by 27%. We can also allow ourselves to go further and dream big: imagine how we would like our life to be in a few years, or what a vacation would be like in that idyllic place … Regardless of whether they come true or not, these visions elevate our encouragement and that will come in handy with any challenge that lies ahead.
The bad times will pass, but while your situation improves, Vodafone is on our side to make the losing streak more bearable. To that end he has created the Connected Rate, which can be accommodated by those over 30 years of age who are beneficiaries of the Minimum Living Income. For 10 euros per month, this mobile-only rate includes 5G navigation up to 15GB and unlimited calls. Another option is the Rate Conectad @ s + internet, which includes mobile and internet at home, with accumulative 15GB and unlimited calls for 25 euros per month.
These rates are designed so that people who currently have fewer resources do not stop being connected while their situation improves and can continue to have, within the reach of a click or a call, the way to work their network of contacts and the possibility of find or generate new opportunities. Because, in addition, when contracting them, these rates provide free access to Udemy, the leading online training platform, already Future Jobs Finder, an exclusive platform from Vodafone to guide the job search.
And if you are under 30 years old, Vodafone Yu has something for you: Heavy Yuser Fifty-Fifty rate (only mobile with 60GB + unlimited calls, for 10 euros per month) or the Heavy Yuser rate + Internet (mobile + internet at home, with 60 GB, unlimited calls and 4G router, for 25 euros per month).
