Holistic wealth is looking at riches beyond just money, however, it is hardest to identify holistic wealth when you feel like you don’t have enough money. It takes an extra mental effort to effectively visualize comprehensive wealth in this condition.
Tony Zorc lists the top 4 mistakes people make when building holistic wealth:
Passing Over A Free Opportunity
It’s remarkable how often people will pass over a free wealth-building opportunity just because they are not focused on it at that specific time. This happens to a person if they haven’t properly identified the riches they want to accumulate and therefore don’t recognize a free gift.
Trading More Money For A Net Decrease In Holistic Wealth
It’s all too often that we take a new financially rewarding opportunity for a small gain, but lose out on several other forms of holistic wealth as a result. Risks are required to get rewards, but all forms of wealth should be reviewed carefully along with the option to take more money.
Ceasing Wealth Building When Hitting A Roadblock
Building wealth and reaping a return on investment takes time. It might be the case that you need to let an investment grow, or wait a little longer for things to change to get a promotion. However, you do NOT need to stop building wealth. If you hit a roadblock in building wealth in one area, you can switch your efforts into another area. You are ultimately in control of building your own wealth, and you never need to stop.
We Become Unbalanced In Our Wealth Building Allocation
We often place too much focus on one area of life, such as a career or maybe a particular relationship at the expense of everything else. It’s important to recognize that it is impossible to grow evenly in wealth in all areas simultaneously. Be mindful that you may need to circle back and manage your other riches, or watch them wither away.
