Are you taking the necessary steps and action today for a brighter future? Most have trouble looking into the future. Most look at life as in YOLO (you only live once). Please through that thought out of the window. You have to stop being selfish especially if you have already started bringing children into this world. It’s not about you anymore so when you think of how you’re going to provide and support your family don’t be lazy and just do enough to survive.
Children don’t understand the words no, not right now or I just can’t. They didn’t ask to be here. Now if you are using this lingo it should only be acceptable if you are sacrificing for a short period of time in order to reach a goal. Remember that you shall work on accomplishing one goal at a time so there won’t be a long-term strain on the family with constant no’s. Once a goal is accomplished take the time out to give gratitude and celebrate.
Converse with your children about the goal that you are working on so that they will know the reason for some cut backs. They may not fully understand now but at least you will be instilling in them some goal setting skills. That way it when be a memorable, self-educational story that your children can share with their children when they start a family.
For instance I just went through a one of those cut back seasons myself! It felt sooooo good to hear one of my daughters say “well, so what’s next? You accomplished the 2 latest things that you were working on, you brought another house for us, you guys brought another vehicle so what’s next”? That one questions puzzled me and put a huge smile on my face. The feeling inside was priceless! It felt good to know that my children were really paying attention to the sacrificing for the cause! I planted another seed! I’m also planting investing lingo into my children.
Children are brilliant! They soak up everything so beware if you’re spilling out a lot garbage.
Please share, sharing is caring! Let’s do it for the children!
