“Nothing will work unless you do.” – Maya Angelou
We are constantly bombarded with messages of simple, quick, no effort required solutions, so that without realizing it, we have fallen for the “easy fix” lie and expect financial success to come without any work on our part.
Living a life of financial abundance, a life of contentment and financial margin, will not come easy. There is nothing easy about the road to true financial freedom. It will require hard work, effort, commitment, guts, and going against the popular culture. If you’re ready to put your “hands to the plow,” here are few steps you can take:
- If you don’t have a plan for spending your money, make one. You need to have a written financial plan, a roadmap that you can follow.
- Find a tool that will help you enforce your monthly budget. If you love technology than search for financial apps that help with planning and tracking your daily expenditures.
- Spend 15 - 30 minutes every day reviewing your budget and where you stand to date. By doing this you’ll be able to make quick adjustments in order to stay within your monthly spending limit.
