Money isn’t everything, but it ranks right up there with oxygen.” – Zig Ziglar
Agree 100% with Ziglar here. There is lots of passion talk – do what you love and money will follow. Maybe, maybe not. But getting your money in order certainly helps you be clear-minded and confident so you can follow your passions more vigorously.
Money supports your living expenses and therefore your dream and therefore your life. In this way, it is like oxygen.
Don’t be afraid to prioritize money!
We do not so much look at things as overlook them. —Zen proverb
When I read this quote, it made me stop and think about what I am overlooking. What are you overlooking?
I am guilty of overanalyzing and also getting wrapped up into my own thoughts. What is going on around you just waiting to be noticed, appreciated, and seized?
One thing I tend to overlook is what works and what I have done; I tend to fixate on what went wrong or what more I still have to do. What is already working in your life? What have you already accomplished today, this week, this past year?
If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves – Thomas Edison
Are you playing full out?
How can you astound yourself?
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere – Albert Einstein
When you are stuck on a decision, force yourself to think of twice as many solutions. Now think of two more solutions than even that.
When you’ve identified a big problem, ask: what if it wasn’t that way?
When you’re scared to move forward, ask: what is the best thing that can happen?
Imagine yourself forward.
