Sorry I haven’t been making entries into the blog but I actually had too many ideas in my head at once and could not decide what to write about. But, are you a failure? (apparently I decided.)
When I think about it and ask myself that question I would say yes! Yes I am a failure. But!!!! (There is always a but.) I am a success because of those failures. If you think about it, Dave Ramsey, Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump, Warren Buffet and many more are really good at failing. But they learned from those failures and learned from those mistakes and failed ventures. They kept going until they succeeded.
But the good thing is your point of view on the subject. You might keep on trying at a goal or a group of goals. But never seem to get a step ahead. One step forward. Two steps back.
”Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something.”~Frederick Smith
I know it might seem discouraging. But the main thing in my opinion to become a winner in finance is persistence. Never give up. You have this passion in you to do something. You might not know what. But honestly it is who you are. This passion needs to be unleashed in whatever you do. Some part of your work needs to reflect your passion. Why? So it doesn’t feel like work.
I have been reading and reading about many different aspects on how to make money. The more I read the more I realize it is not really hard. You just need a plan. The plan is what gets you to win. I can read till my eyes fall out. It will do myself no good unless I apply it to my life in some way. Every one should have some sort of plan with whatever they are dealing with in life right now! I mean honestly.
“I want to do this but I keep getting turned down” Sound like you? It sounded like me a while back. If your plan is not working just change a few steps. Make a detour. Then get back on that path to your goal.
What would happen if…
You need car repair or you got into an accident?
Children need hospital care?
Kids college is right around the corner?
I am going to be a parent soon?
Water heater broke?
I just got robbed?
and so on and so on… … .
Most of us just don’t think about what if’s and without a plan, it will be just another failure. Think about it. Are you ready to protect yourself from what life will bring. Or are you winging it? Leave a comment if you like. But take care of yourself.
You are not a failure.
You are a winner.
You are a success.
Be smart, be frugal, be a better you.
