Now is the time to take that leap of faith! Too often, we make excuses as to why we cannot do something. Why???
Are you sitting on a great idea? Do you have a business plan or product that you would like to start? Do you want a different look, job, life style? Would you like to go back to school? Are you sick and tired of your relationship(s) or even how your money is spent or saved?
Well today is the day to stop making excuses!
I am very aggressive when it comes to my career, education, life and point blank whatever I want! If not me than who?
Here is a story about me and how I made a change in my life.
Years ago, I had a one bedroom apartment and worked an under the table job (paid cash weekly) and was doing everything for my daughter and I alone. Times were hard. Things were often a struggle to get. However, I made sure we had what we needed and some of what we wanted. When my relationship became more serious with my boyfriend (now husband), we needed more space we needed to make a move.
First, I found another job (on the books with benefits and with a large corporation); bless my husband’s heart for pushing me to see past the car lots that I use to work at. Next, I used my resources and the help of my best friend and my family and I moved to a house for rent.
After living in the home with a growing family and maturing as adults, you know working and married with kids. I wanted to own my home. Our credit was not great; we barely had any savings. In fact, we had none; we only had the dream of home ownership.
So how exactly did we go from not so good credit and no savings to home ownership??? Well I will tell you again we used our resources. My husband knew someone who was a realtor and we got some financial advice about our credit. We started focusing on credit repair and saving a committed amount of our pay each paycheck. We made some sacrifices. We did not eat out as much or splurge on things that we did not need. In a matter of 6 months, we were able to save up our required 15% down payment and moved into our very own home!
You think my story is the “exception” and good for me but you can not do that?? YOU CAN. I am no different from you. Okay, I self motivate my self and maybe you do not. If you are not an enterprising person and you often, need someone to give you that extra push then PUSH —-> GET UP AND MAKE A CHANGE.
Stop complaining, stop making excuses, it will never be the right time because NOW is the time. Stop worrying about what people will think who cares, all that matters is that you are happy and you are doing exactly what you want to do whatever it is.
One of my favorite sayings…”where there is a will there is a way”. Use your resources; most things happen because someone knew someone. Whom do you know? What do they do? How can they help you? Reach out, find out!
Make today the day that you do something you want to do. If you do not know how ask me, maybe I know maybe I do not but if I do not I will help you find something or someone who does. Why? Because I want to help you become a better more happier you…
