How many times in life do we wish we had saved more for the rainy day that arrived before we were ready, or put aside a small amount each month to pay for that big purchase we knew we would have to make.
Why do we choose to play small, or sacrifice the achievements we know we’re capable of and choose instant gratification/sabotage in the present moment?
You see an opportunity to create the circumstances / life that you’ve craved, you know you might need to make some small daily changes and you finally know what you need to do. But you don’t get started because you don’t need it yet… and before you know it, it’s too late!
I recently had a reality check, I’ve spent almost a year talking ‘baby’ and very very little time talking business! But it’s ok, I’d never get a second chance to enjoy that year with my son, however I can easily get back on track with my business. So here is your reality check , if you haven’t already bought your first home, the chances are you will need as much extra income as you can get when you do. If you haven’t already started a family, the chances are you will need as much extra income (and time) as you can get when you do. If you have already started a family, you’ll know they cost more the older they get, so start planning now as the chances are you’ll need as much extra income as possible down the line… if you don’t have a pension, when you do retire… the chances are…. you see where I’m going with this. Don’t wait until you need it before you start doing something about it.
This blog is about sharing my work from home business and what it can do, but if that’s not your thing, find something that is but that also gives you time freedom, because life is too precious to spend all of it working while the memories were made without you, or to spend all of it wishing for different circumstances while time passed anyway.
Dig your well before you need it, because whatever happens, you’ll need it for something!
