Financial Well-Being for Baby Boomers
According to some reports, it doesn’t look like there’s anything to worry about concerning the financial well-being for baby boomers. It is said that baby boomers were the wealthiest generation at that time, and received good levels of income during their working lives.
I know I’m not one of those wealthy baby boomers. I came from a working poor background and have struggled to make ends meet most of my life. But I really have come to believe that one’s mindset plays a huge part on whether they are rich or poor, wealthy or prosperous. I’ve been working for the last several years to improve my financial well-being by improving my mindset.
There are certain attitudes and actions that the wealthy have that most others don’t have. How is your financial well-being? Where do you sit on the Millionaire Mindset? (See my upcoming book review on this book and others listed below.)
It has been said that we are influenced by the five people closest to us. ‘Birds of a feather flock together. Or ‘Like attracts like.’ Who are you hanging out with?
Show Me The Money!!!
How much money is ‘enough’? Is there ever such a thing as ‘too much money? How and why do you feel that way?
Is there a difference between being rich and being wealthy? Some say that being rich is objective and based on comparisons to others, while wealth is more of a subjective experience that is solely up to the individual’s attitudes and perception.

Comfort Levels about Money
I recently heard of a study where the researchers looked at two groups of realtors in a city to see if they could figure out what determines ‘success.’ They looked at the areas of the city with high priced/high valued properties, and areas of the city with lower-valued properties. The researchers predicted that realtors would perform better who had high-valued properties to sell and those realtors that had lower-valued properties would have less income than the other group.
The researchers identified the highest-performing salespersons and the lowest-performing salespersons in each neighbourhood. They wondered if they could raise up the income level of the low-performing salespersons by putting them in a higher-valued property neighborhood, and if the higher-performing sales person’s sales would decrease in a lower-valued neighborhood.
What the researchers found actually astounded them that the low-performing salespersons’ performance and sales actually went down in a short period of time, and the high-performing salespersons were able, over time, to raise their income levels back to peak sales even though they were in a poorer valued neighborhood.
Like Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”
