Before people start Financially Fit Bootcamp, there’s one phrase I hear pretty often: “I feel like I never have any money, because as soon as I get it, it’s gone!”
Is there an epidemic of paychecks magically disappearing from bank accounts across the globe?
The Mysterious Case Of The Disappearing Money
Probably not. Most people come to the end of their paycheck and have no idea where their money went. This uncertainty causes you to feel out of control. Your money is disappearing, and you feel powerless to stop it.
You don’t need to live your life this way. You can eliminate your Money Stress by developing a plan that will not only provide for your future but also for right now.
You’ve heard us talk about the Four Money Principles. Principle Two teaches that to reach Financial Freedom, you need to Live Within Your Means. The way you accomplish this is to choose where your money goes rather than wonder where it went.
Choose Where Your Money Goes
Don’t let your money happen to you, be proactive and choose where your money goes. This is an empowering process that puts you in the driver’s seat. Now, I’m not here to tell you how to spend your money. You need to be the one who decides what is important to you so you find the balance in your life. But get clear on your priorities in your life, and develop a financial plan that supports them. Pay Yourself First, Live Within Your Means, and you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’ll feel confidant and in control around your finances.
Start allocating money to what’s important instead of only spending on what’s urgent.
