I was reading a book and the author talked about how the longer we go by not doing something that we have wanted to do the greater the likelihood of that something never happening. When I thought about this personally, an example popped in my head, which had to do with giving. In the past I was always willing to give time but I was never willing to give monetarily. I kept telling myself next month I’ll give. Next month turned into next month. The following month turned into a year and so you can see this pattern that we are going down. Needless to say, I never gave and it wasn’t until my wife came along who then modeled giving.
She showed me who I really want to be and so I had to start to change that. I had to make my reality today of being generous. The whole point of this is, if you are constantly telling yourself “hey I need to get my finances in order” but you keep saying tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, well when is it ever going to be today? So you have to start to make the change today. Don’t wait until tomorrow! Make the change today. And really, this applies to everything. It doesn’t have to be monetary. It could be a fitness goal. It could be whatever. You got to start to do it today. I hope this food for thought is helpful. Stay tuned for the next one and I hope you have a great day.
