How to become financially whole

For many people, their relationship with money is a daily source of anxiety and disappointment, and they often find themselves saying “there’s never enough to go round”, “I can’t make ends meet”, “I’m not earning enough”, and “I can’t manage to put aside any money”.

The concept of financial wholeness promises to change this situation, and we can achieve it when every aspect related to our money management is in order and is managed to the best of our ability, whether it be earnings, expenses, or any money matters whatsoever, both present and future. The process consists of ten steps, and once we have completed them all, we will achieve financial security.  

Financial security gives us peace of mind, and this has nothing to do with the amount of money in our bank account at any given time, but with the fact that we know how to manage our money effectively in any situation, in good times and bad. The aim here is to put aside our fear of financial collapse. In short, financial security is not the same as financial independence, which allows us the luxury of not needing to work, rather it frees us of the chains and fears that prevent us from letting our money work for us, and not the other way round. 

The ten steps of the process are divided into two distinct phases. The first five allow us to create a secure and reliable economic foundation, and to automate our payment and saving processes. The remaining five steps shift the focus to making our money work for us, to building our investments, and to enhancing our future.
