Learning to rewire your responses to risk, loss, and even gains can be a game-changer for your finances.   

In this episode, Ben and Deb shed light on the power of optimizing your mind, why risk doesn’t always equal loss, and the value of adopting a money script that nurtures an abundance mindset.     

In this episode, you’ll also hear:

  • Understanding the abundance vs. scarcity mindset 
  • Why a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush 
  • Reframing your mindset with money scripts 

Must-listen moments: 

[00:05:20] You will never maximize your wealth unless you can optimize your mind.

[00:24:15] There’s neuroscience involved in that with your own voice, telling you things about yourself. My favorite script when it comes to money is “I make smart, rational, logical decisions with my money.”
