“Fighting to pay the bills is hardly worth it… fight for a better life!”
What do we really want?
This question is one that has pretty much founded the self help industry and will sustain it for eternity. The problem is that it is often asked without the commitment of action with accountability… FIRST!!!
It’s the reason why people go to seminars and read books; coming away to say that it was all “very interesting”. Well I’m sorry but “interesting” won’t bring you the lifestyle you aspire to. You need capacity!
I knew that with all the fighting that myself and my family had done of trying to save money was an experience that formed the basis of my new and exciting fight for my freedom!
What I discovered was that there wasn’t any difference at all between the people who were making money and the people who were saving money. They are all just people when it comes to the crunch.
By exploring even further, I also found out that the people making the money are always the ones that win the fight. They are the ones that win the game every time. This realization brought home the reality that there was never going to be a chance to win against the “money makers”.
Because they set the rules and they have a cause worth fighting for. As a result of them winning the game, they get what they want for their family and friends.
And they don’t give in – ever!
Being that we had achieved great success on the “saving money train”, my wife and I had shown that if times ever got tough in a financial sense, we would be OK, as we had the capacity to do whatever it takes to protect our special family time together.
For me, saving money became boring.
So my new fight that was about what I wanted for my family would be geared towards making money, not saving it! This fight was clearly a battle that was worth the effort because the big outcome would be an abundance of family living.
And that’s what is important to me. All the material nonsense that comes with having too much money would no doubt invade our space but at least there would be some concrete real life perspective that would ensure we never got carried away.
To me this is a sustainable way to live as material stuff can always be taken away, but the stuff in your heart can’t be stolen.
