With so many people in the world who are on track to do better than they did last month, it’s easy to get caught up in the world of financial news. I recommend a documentary I recently watched called “Personal Finance: The Three Levels of Self-Awareness.
A friend who is in the same business used to give me a lot of money for personal finance advice. One of the things I learned from that was that if I wanted to learn something new, I had to be willing to read and study the things I already had.
I have a few books to read on personal finance, but I thought the most valuable thing to start with is how to make money first.
There are three main levels of self-awareness on any given topic. The first level is the level that is most easily observed – thinking about how you are feeling and what you want to do. The second level is the most intuitive – what your body is telling you. The third level is the most practical – how you are actually feeling.
I love the fact that personal finance is an area where not only are we talking about money, but we are talking about self-awareness. That’s what makes this documentary so important to me. It’s not just talking about what to do with money, but how you feel about money.
In the end, this documentary was a great start. The intro to the film was really motivational and I could tell that the producers had a good idea of what they were talking about. When things were going well it was easy to see how an average person, like myself, could make a financial plan and implement it. The second half was more about the things people struggle with and how to take care of them.
The second half was a bit more introspective, as it went into the process of making a financial plan and figuring out what financial struggles are so that we can help people in the same situation. There was also a bit of a history lesson on how we got here, and how we got to this point. Of course, we also showed how we’ve been able to help people overcome some of these struggles.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind here. The first is that we have a number of people in our community who are struggling with some of the same financial struggles. So we wanted to give them an opportunity to get involved in a little more direct action.
The other is that we want to provide an educational resource for anyone who struggles with their finances. The goal is to give as many people as possible an opportunity to explore how they might be able to improve their financial situation. This is great for anyone who wants to get a taste of the power of social media.
By the way, we are also doing a short film that explores the topic of personal finance, and is narrated by our community founder and CEO, Ryan O’Leary. You can check out the trailer.
