We all have things that we want to improve in. But if we just sit back and hope or dream about that thing happening it most likely will NOT happen. You can’t improve unless you try!
REALLY IT’S TRUE
You will not improve or change unless you are trying to. Let’s look at an example.
Our example will be getting fit. I believe in some way we all want to be fit so let’s talk about it. If we want to be fit, we cannot sit down and watch someone else doing it. Hoping that their workout will benefit us. We have to work at it ourselves, we have to do the workout.
Now I am not saying to go out and run 10 miles, no you have to build up your workout.
START WITH ONE THING
The key to successfully improving at something is to start with one thing. Then once you have mastered that, build upon it (add one more thing). If you try to do everything at one time, you will get overwhelmed.
Take one step at a time!!
These are going to be steps to help you try and because this is a personal finance blog, we are going to talk about finances. I know that we all hope and dream about improving our financial situation.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
These steps can work for other things too.
- Set a goal – Goals are pretty important to help achieve something. This goal can be little or big but remember to work on one thing at a time.
- Create a Budget (or Plan) – This step will make that goal attainable. You need a plan on achieving where your money is going to go.
- Try, Try, Try – Whatever you want to improve; you need to try whether that is making extra money to help, researching money tips, sticking to a budget, not doing or buying the wanted item, This list could go on and on but try.
There are times when things are handed to someone but if that person does not have a foundation, they normally lose it. Try these steps to build a foundation and learn how to manage your money.
YOU CAN’T IMPROVE UNLESS YOU TRY
Your life will not change unless you do something about it. It will not improve unless you try to improve it. Don’t sit back dreaming of what could be, do something about it. Set a goal, create a plan, and try! It will only change your life!
