Most people wake up every day ONLY chasing the check. The truth is, you may be at a point in your life where getting the check is the top priority.
Maybe you're in deep debt… maybe you're tired of feeding your kids convenience store food, maybe you have a dying family member who can't make it without you. These are the realities of life and happen EVERY DAY for people all around the world.
The last thing you need to hear is to create another “vision board” or just sit back and let the “universe” take care of everything.
But what do you do when you need cash TODAY to survive. If this is the case for you, it's time to get practical and make things happen. You can only cut expenses so much. You can only reduce your life so much before it stops making sense.
Here's my advice…
Stop beating yourself up and worrying about the past. It happened, it doesn't define you. Choose to be a different person TODAY. Make different decisions TODAY. And stop talking about yesterday TODAY.
Now that you made that decision, have faith and trust God. Now that you've made the decision to be a new you, now it's time to get practical.
Sit down and write out what's important to you. Write out your goals. Sure, goals will change as you grow, but get some goals. Don't buy into the “no goals” hype, leave that for the selfish people who make life all about themselves. This is for people who have bigger dreams than all your bills being paid and having a little left over. It's time to start thinking bigger.
Think about all the people you could help if you had cash. Think about what you could do for those around you who are hurting or are in desperate need. What if you could be a bridge for those around you to a new life?
Now, set some goals, and then make a commitment to reach those goals. Nobody cares about your goals but you, stop worrying about friends and family supporting you, that thought process is for losers. Quit looking for “help” and assume it's never coming.
Refocus that energy and effort on being helpful to others without wanting or needing anything in return. Start building relationships with people outside of your normal circle. Start dressing differently. Start talking differently. Do what you need to do to get out of your current situation. Move houses. Move states. Move Countries.
You live once. What are you willing to change? My advice is to be willing to change it ALL.
