Today I wanted to take a moment to remind you to take smalls steps towards improving your financial health. We can often get ambitious and take on more than we can handle which only leads us to feelings of disappointment and failure.
Don’t be too hard on yourself as you take steps to improve. Instead, focus on the positive changes you’ve made up to this point, from spending less to saving more each month. You’ve committed yourself to living a smarter, stable, and more financially savvy life. Imagine this change as you would a baby who learns how to speak after learning how to make sounds; it takes time. Take baby steps toward your financial goals, and don’t set unreasonable goals. Doing so will be the key to your success.
As someone who has already taken some positive steps towards good money management, you have already jumped over the highest hurdle; taking action. Take comfort in knowing that in time you will be leaping over multiple hurdles, but, in the meantime, commend yourself for the amazing progress you have made so far. Remember to celebrate the positive results you have seen since you started managing your money better.
You have the tools and support you need to walk the path of financial freedom so experience life as it comes and continue to set new goals for yourself. Before long you will be enjoying your new way of life and you will feel more confident, more secure, and more positive about the future of your financial health.
I am guilty on being too hard on myself. I get a little obsessive and try to be perfect. It is the biggest mistake that I do because when I fail to be perfect I cannot enjoy even small achievements.
@ Aloysa Yes, you and me are born perfectionists. I too have a hard time ever celebrating my success. I am always looking at the next goal. I have been getting better though and stress less than I used too. Don’t worry, it is possible to find balance, it just takes some time and retraining of ourselves. You have lots to be proud of Aloysa.
