SLOW PROGRESS IS STILL PROGRESS!
How often do we feel like giving up on something when we don't see an immediate impact from good decisions? In a society and culture where instant gratification is accepted and taught as the norm, it is as important as ever to practice patience, perseverance, and consistency. Yes, this week's Money Tip applies to more than just your finances.
CONSISTENCY in moving the ball forward and taking one step after another, especially in moments we feel our actions are pointless, separates those who achieve their goals and those who fall short. In order to PERSEVERE through these mental lapses, as we question the significance of our actions, our overall purpose must be ingrained in our minds. That concrete foundation in our mind we can continually go back to as a reminder to stay PATIENT. So next time you feel like your monthly savings toward an abundant retirement or payments toward your student loans are not making a difference, I would urge you not to throw in the towel, but instead, visualize the FINANCIAL FREEDOM you will have if you stay consistent in your actions. There is plenty of space on the road toward this type of freedom, it is seldom traveled.
