Now I know you don’t need me to remind you, but just to put it out there, today is the 1st of June, we’re officially halfway through the year. What have you done for yourself so far?
At the end of every year we reflect, we see where we went wrong, where we failed ourselves and swear to never do it again. A week or so later, we enter into the new year and start setting goals and resolutions for the new year and we start setting them in motion and then like glitter sprinkled on paper, the excitement and novelty get blown away and wear off and then… we continue with life as it was before the January “I can be better” frenzy. We start making excuses, we start reasoning, life happens and other people happen and we slowly move what’s best for us to the back of the priority list.
It’s important that we keep looking for ways make ourselves better, that needs to be constant project. If you had financial goals set for yourself -with a plan of course- then you’re going to have to learn to say NO to things and people that are going to have a negative impact on your financial progress. If you had intended to be happier this year then you need to BE intentional about it, say NO to anything that you keeps you from being happy. See if you don’t make the decision to say NO to things that keep you from those and other goals, you’re giving it to them, no one and nothing takes your money, happiness or any other thing that you wanted to be better at this year, with the exception of life’s unexpected challenges coming at you, you give them away.
Here’s the good news though, the year’s not over. We could say the first half was for practise, now, it’s game time. Make sure that when you look back and reflect on 2019, you’re proud. Remember though, you don’t need it to be December or January for you to reflect and start making some changes, there’s no better time than the present. Also remember that no step is too small, every step counts. Now, let’s make the moves we planned to make.
