WHAT are you doing with your money?
Many people believe that if they had millions of dollars they would be happy, but most of us cannot budget the money we are earning now. Create a workable budget and stick to it. Devise a savings plan for a desired possession. Set aside funds for emergencies and unexpected circumstances. Plan for retirement and the future. Tithe.
Don’t let your money manage you . . . manage your money! Take a class, hire a financial consultant, talk to an accountant, or research about money management. Get control of your finances and watch your resources multiply!
The verb for the month is action. The sensation you get from action is accomplishment. The feeling of accomplishment is a wonderful feeling. You learn something through the experience and it is something that you can classify as “done”!
When it is done. You have more “brain space” to accomplish something else. I was fortunate within this last year to launch a book with Elaine (actually it is a monthly pocket planner), and record two songs with my son who is a music producer. Both of these goals took at least 15 years to accomplish. My son was 10 years old when I originally wrote the lyrics. He was younger than that when Elaine and I decided to be the co-founders of W.H.A.T.!™. But now, both of these goals are done . . . checked off as accomplished!
To get something accomplished is never easy, it may take years, there may be obstacles, and plenty of grief. But once it is done, it is done! You might enhance, change, or improve it. But once it is accomplished, it is accomplished! So gather up some courage, confidence, faith, and perseverance. And always remember to trust in your Supreme Being to know that goals you deferred for years can be “done”!
It is never too late to accomplish a goal. You have to be determined enough to finish it and see it through. If you don’t, then who will? If not you, then who? Find your “I can’t … it’s impossible … it’s too late … I’m too old” list, and check off those goals as accomplished!
