There’s a lot we can learn from each other financially, whether it’s how to get out of debt, how to budget, how to invest, or how to cultivate the attitudes and actions that allow us to take control of our financial situation.
As we continue to promote good financial habits in our weekly Twitter Spaces sessions, we felt we needed to mention the importance of learning from financial experience.
Whether it’s their own successes and failures or someone else’s, many of us have grown stronger when it comes to the decisions we make financially by learning from our own experience, as well as by following in the footsteps of those who have set an example, whether good or bad.
That’s why we call on our followers to talk about their experiences with money. It doesn’t matter if they are good or bad, examples of your success or failure, whatever your money story is, there is something to be learned from it.
While some may find it easier to share stories of financial success, we hope to hear about your failures as well. No one goes through life without at least a few financial mistakes, and these often provide even more instructive moments than success stories. If you made financial mistakes, have you learned from them? Is there something the rest of us can also learn from them? We hope to provide you with a safe space to share how you overcame your financial challenges.
Remember, even the billionaires of this world didn’t become who they are today without making at least a few mistakes. The difference between them and the average person may well have been that their failures didn’t make them quit, but rather they learned from their experience so they could try again the next day and do things a little better than before.
