Dr. Sabrina Scott explains that many people expect the worst but hope for the best and shows how detrimental this line of thinking is.
DECATUR, GA, November 1, 2018: Dr. Sabrina Scott, co-founder of Red Feather Financial, has posted a new article on the firm’s website entitled “How So Many People Jinx Their Future.” Dr. Scott is a proponent of positive thinking and acting and hopes to help readers take charge of their finances and their lives.
Dr. Scott writes, “It’s Fall Break – that means no school so, as my husband heads out to battle Atlanta traffic, I say “Traffic should be light since …”. I never finish my sentence since my husband yells, “Don’t say it or you’ll jinx it!” “
According to Scott there are many topics that come up on a regular basis that many people consider taboo. She explains, “I have been similarly cautioned by him and others for expressing the belief that it won’t rain this weekend or stating that I’m not sick when there is a bug going around.” “Really?” Scott asks, “Can we no longer comment on or appreciate the positive without concern that this will make it vanish?”
“This brings me to the subject of your future,” says Dr. Scott. She asks, “How do you approach it? Do you ever think about what happens if you can’t take care of yourself anymore?” She continues adding, “This is not a pleasant thing to think about. If a client tells me, I should have enough money to pay for any long-term care I might need. I don’t yell, “Don’t say it or you’ll jinx it!” No – that’s when it’s time for analysis and review and then recommendations.” She emphasizes, “If, in fact, you don’t currently have enough money to pay for potential long-term care you’ll definitely want to have this conversation.”
Dr. Scott points out, “Unfortunately so many people actually expect the worst while merely hoping for the best. That’s it. They don’t actually do, say or think anything positive. That holds true for the traffic, the weather, sickness and financial planning for the future. Talk about ‘jinxing’! That’s what I call sticking your head in the sand.” She adds, “This is a trend I would love to help people exchange for a more positive, deliberate and decisive plan of action.”

About Dr. Sabrina Scott
Sabrina Scott learned about Veterans Benefits and Medicaid when her parents sought legal services for long-term care. Confident she could find ways to preserve her family’s resources and still get access to Government Assistance, Sabrina felt there should be more options than relying on welfare.

She co-founded Red Feather Financial with Victoria Collier to help those who want to have a plan in place in order not to outlive their resources and who do not want to be a burden to their children.
