Enjoying another walk today. While I’m walking, I come toward a hill. I think to run/jog it and then I think of my knee that’s ace bandaged at the moment. To say I’m apprehensive is right. There’s the EIK! moment; the uh-uh moment; and the What If moment. Now the knee isn’t nor ever was broken but it’s been swollen, and the doctor suggested wrapping it, among other things. So a light jog should be fine, in my opinion. But as always there is more for you to see here.
I began thinking of the relationship (be it small, almost non-existent, for some) that we have with our finances/money. We’re afraid to move forward because of current insufficiency. We’re afraid to take a chance because of the possibility of something bad happening. We cower from prosperous opportunities that are not overlaid in gold or adorned in gems. Moving forward may be a bit painful, but in fact the old saying – No Pain, No Gain – still applies. Don’t be imprisoned by fear, pain, anxiety, criticism, past, present,…Nothing.
Apply pressure and know that you were built to stand. So what you’ve buckled before-made bad decisions and more-
Be strengthened in education
Be strengthened with time
Be strengthened in knowing, you’re not alone
Be strengthened for pursuing what may not be now but certainly may be in tomorrow.
Don’t think negatively either. Look if you’re going to have anything in life, you’re going to have to put aside what was, even what may be for your dreams. Quit thinking that everything is a gimmick. Quit thinking that everybody knows what they’re talking about.
Bankruptcy is not the end and for others of you it doesn’t have to be a beginning.
Your ‘being careful/cautious’ is really procrastination – tell the truth
We don’t encourage being gullible, so be informed – still look before you leap.
Did I jog? Yes. Was there pain? Yes. Did I stop? Kinda – stopped jogging but kept walking. Oh yeah! I just thought about people who complain about taxes. Some do overtime to make more but then get angry about the taxes as a result. Okay, so there are taxes, but are you also one of those sets of people who has their OT going toward their pension? Gain. There’s also a biz/tax tip that I’ve learned from many where you make taxes work for you. You can make all your money work for you.
Did I jog again? Yes. Was there pain again? Yes. Did I have to stop again? Kinda again. Could I have pushed through it? Yep, if Jillian Michaels or Duvet or somebody was pushing me. Sometimes having the right person pushing you helps in a pursuit. For those that work out with weights, we know that our spotters are not just there if we need help but also to challenge us. Is it possible that maybe you do better with someone than on your own? Well, do that. That requires homework too, because some people are not in it for you but for themselves. Still no reason to not pursue.
