In life we tend to afford the things we want, we don’t just spend, we invest time, money and energy to get those things. .
You can agree that If you really want something you’d find a way to afford it right ???
New car ? New house? New shoes ? New outfit? .
If you want these things, You’re going to work hard, invest time & money into achieving them. .
You make it happen!
You make it a priority to achieve the things you want in life. .
When I hear people saying .. I can’t afford this or I can’t afford that. .
What I really hear is ... I’m not willing to invest the time, money, energy into this.. (which is completely fine.) .
BUT In my opinion - It’s never the lack of resources, it’s always the lack of resourcefulness. .
I believe that if you want something badly enough you’d do anything in your power to make sure it’s yours. You wouldn’t give up. You’d fight until it was yours. You’d show up, investing your time, energy, value & money. .
I meet people on the daily that say they want to change their life, yet they aren’t willing to change or invest in themselves.
Whether this be in their personal growth, business or their health. ‘’I want lose weight’’ but i don’t want to invest my time or money into getting the results. ‘’I can’t afford it, I don’t have the time’’ .
However they go out every weekend binging on food & alcohol, running themselves into debt with just a hangover and maybe a pot-noodle pillow stain to show for it. No... you can afford it, you’re just choosing to not prioritise it.
Which is completely fine... but don’t say you can’t afford it. Say ‘’It not a priority right now.’’. .
Many entrepreneurs - ‘’I want growth, but I don’t want don’t want to invest money on coaches, marketing, education,outsourcing.’’ .
If you don’t invest in yourself to grow, then how do you expect potential clients to invest in you, your products or your services? .
The way you value money is a huge part of who you are & also a huge part of how you show up and value yourself.
Stop spending and start Investing in yourself. .
Make decisions your future self with be grateful & proud of! Be honest with yourself and where your priorities lay. - 24 hours ago
