Overview

Can you envision a healthy financial life but have old, hard-to-break habits that prevent it from taking root? You are not alone. It turns out our brains are hard-wired to make poor financial—and life—decisions. Financial Intelligence helps you break the cycle of habitual and emotional decision-making that our brains automatically spark when faced with challenging events. Beginning with your principles, values, and beliefs, Financial Intelligence offers a concrete guide to help you achieve better results.
Doug Lennick provides a simple and clear four-step method for making wise financial and life decisions based on your core values. When you find yourself in a highly charged event, such as the Dow Jones plummeting, rash decisions often follow—like selling your entire stock portfolio at record lows! Recognizing your automatic mental and physical responses is half the battle toward taking control of the situation. After reflecting on your values and your circumstances (while accounting for your inherent biases), you can reframe a more realistic interpretation of what is happening and what lies ahead. This allows you to respond to a critical situation with understanding and foresight about which current actions will best serve your goals.
Accepting the certainty of uncertainty means you must prepare for the ups and downs of life so when you are thrown a curveball you are confident you have the foundation in place to act wisely. Financial Intelligence gives you the tools to build this foundation—to be able to step back from a tense situation, return to your core values, and transition to an emotional state where decisions are based on thoughtful analysis of what will bring you the greatest long-term success and fulfillment in life.
