Your money challenges are very personal. You may have a large credit card balance gnawing at you, while your best friend is awake at night worrying about being able to keep working through her 60s, while your sister across the country is stressed over how to pay for the kids’ college education. Those are all very different financial worries. But they are in fact borne from the same core emotion: fear.

I can help each and every one of you with specific financial advice-from the right life insurance to how to invest your Roth IRA-but I am here to tell you that the money advice is a distant second to what I really want to help you achieve: overcoming your financial fears.

When fear is raging in your head and heart it is incredibly damaging. You can’t think straight. You can’t make sound decisions. You can’t be your very best. Fear prevents you from being more and having more.

You deserve better. Here’s how to overcome your financial fear.

1. Face it.

Write down your biggest financial fear. Becoming a bag lady. Not having any money set aside for emergencies. A whopping credit card bill.

2. Create a New Truth.

Now close your eyes for a moment and think about what it would feel like to conquer that fear. I want you to write down a new truth that banishes your fear. For example, if your fear is “I will never be able to pay off my huge credit card bills.” Your new truth is “I have paid off all my credit balances and now live within my means.” Or if your fear is not being able to afford to retire, your new truth could be “By saving more and spending less I am on track to retire comfortably.” Be sure to phrase everything as if you have already achieved your goal. Don’t use phrases like “I hope I can…” or, “I want to…” None of that conditional maybe yes/maybe no wishful attitude. Your new truth is to be emphatic and triumphant. “I have an eight month emergency fund.” “My family is protected no matter what happens to me.” And keep it short. One simple declarative sentence that you can easily memorize.

    Find a job (if ones even available), hopefully it covers your student loan, or you cant even have a home or family… much less save any money.
