Finances Affect Your Peace
When it comes to finances, are you so in control that you feel invincible? Or are you so out of control that you feel enslaved? Have you measured success, or lack of it, by how much you earn, how much you owe, or how much or little is in your bank account? Ever get in so deep you’ve been on the verge of bankruptcy, or already declared it?
Has your financial position kept you up at night? Are your money concerns like a computer program always running in the background, constantly on your mind? Or maybe things are just “okay,” and while you’re “getting by,” it never seems like you can really get ahead with enough reserve to take the pressure off.
4 Questions to Get Started
Have an open and honest conversation with yourself. Acknowledge where you’re struggling so you can go into attack mode and learn to master it.
Take a moment right now and think about which of these four areas of life are already causing pain for you. Write it down.
1. What are the consequences of not having it under control?
2. Besides you, who else is being affected by it?
3. How would life look differently if this area was mastered?
4. What can you do starting today, to make a plan that will cause you to take action and make changes?
You may already have one or more of these four areas somewhat mastered. But thinking that you don’t need to improve will short-circuit your growth.
Every man has an opportunity to learn more and become more proficient in each one of these areas. Doing so earns you the expertise to master all four of these crucial areas of life and gives you the confidence to be successful and to serve others.
