IT’S ONLY TEMPORARY: DON’T LET FINANCIAL SETBACKS DETERMINE YOUR OUTCOME

“When you’re on your last leg.”


at wits end

Growing up for me, we were a poor household. But have you ever felt like throwing your hands up because you don’t have enough money. Or the fact that your finances are out of wack. You are ready to give up and give in, but something is keeping you from doing so. And why give up, why let life win. Because who ever said it would be easy was lying to you. I have looked at my bank account an wondered to myself, how the hell do I make it everyday. But I always seem to pull myself through pay my bills on time.

give up and go deeper

The more you hurt the more you sink into a dark place, the harder it is to get out of that place. So it sounds easy, but it’s beyond difficult. How do yo remove yourself from this funk. I wish I had the model for getting out of a dark place. Now notice I said dark place, which is associated with the mental. A lot of people are not deep as they think, but the mind starts working on you and next thing you know you are financially done. So watch how that mind can play tricks on you.

there’s always someone worse

We hate looking at another person’s life and thinking to ourselves, “At least I am not going through that in life.” It sucks to sometimes look at someone else to feel good about myself. I want to just feel a certain way and know that my feelings are special . Only problem is that they are not special. And it’s great to feel what others feel. I would never want to be the only person on Earth with money problems.

SHOW SOME RESPECT: WHY DO PEOPLE COME FROM THE BOTTOM AND THROW MONEY AWAY

“Mind your money.”


started at the bottom

So many people who grow up in poor environments have these dreams of making it in life. A goal that is very broad and ambiguous when you hear the word making it. But there is another side to making it in life. And that side that how do we make money, do all that work to get it, then blow it to the wind. And it’s simple, we think the money will keep coming. We don’t think about tomorrow because tomorrow is not on the minds of people. We make so much money and over time forget about the days of being broke. And that’s when you make the vital mistake. Once you forget, you find yourself back in the place once again.

think first, spend last

There is a saying, “Hey, if you got it, flaunt it.” And that sounds good, but the life that you might be living could all fall apart because it’s not a sustainable existence. You have to think about tomorrow, but that’s hard when you don’t have to think about tomorrow. So many people ask how do you let your spending get out of control. But they have to always watch their finances Image result for broke athletes espnreally closely. They live on the edge of losing everything, so they don’t understand getting and then spending beyond what you have to spend. But guess what, the people spending were the people at one point in time who said they don’t understand why so many people with money go broke.

your mind must be cleaned

If you want to keep the money you earned you can no longer think poor. You have to always keep cleaning out the bad stuff that you once thought was a good idea before you started making money. Because your thoughts at a certain level might be rational to you and everyone around you at that current level, but they keep you in that same position. And you don’t realize your mind needs cleaning until you move to a different level. And then everyone below that point you see their mistakes. And that’s when you think to yourself, “Oh, ok, this is the problem.” Sad thing is, so many won’t understand or listen to you. And they will never leave their position. And if you don’t watch your spending you will be back in the position you worked so hard to leave.
