I’m sick of being pitched a quick fix and/or a short path to financial freedom everytime I go online. Lose weight, get ripped, get rich, have better relationships; there’s too many people attempting to prey on our desire for a silver bullet or magic pill that will get us where we want to go.
Instead of buying someone’s online program, focus on being 25% better in 2019.
What if your diet and fitness level was 25% better? What if your relationship with your family was 25% better? Your finances and overall happiness 25% better? That’d be pretty freaking good, right?!The reality is, we get better the same way we got sick; one bite at a time, one conversation at a time, so on and so forth. How to do it?
In your interactions with family, seek first to understand, than to be understood. This will require patience and real listening on your part.
With exercise, if you’re currently working out 2 times a week, add another day or increase the time you’re working out by 25%.
Audit your eating. Can you pack a lunch 25% more than you currently are? This will also help with the next one.
The low hanging fruit when it comes to cutting spending is eating out; I bet you can easily cut this by 25% a week.
Consider increasing your savings rate into your savings account or retirement plan. If you’re currently contributing 5% to your 401(k), up it to 6 or 7%.
Personally, start practicing gratitude on a daily basis; you’ll easily become 25% happier.
You can absolutely do this, you just need to get started! Put pen to paper and figure out how you can make this happen.
