Motivate Monday

Hello hello!! Another Monday has greeted us:)

Today, I want to get you excited about your budgeting!

Years ago, I was the customer that held her breath, hoping every transaction went through. The thought of buckling down and seeing the numbers, made me lose sleep. On the contrary, the frequent experiences with “decline” was just as terrible. I wasn’t ready for that growth yet, though.

Today, I spent hours working out my plan. I looked at bills and totals, dates and payments. I typed it all up in my app; which allows me to revisit it anytime I need.

So how do you get excited about budgeting?

You SET A GOAL!!

Think about these past two years. The isolation and re-evaluations tortured our mental health. We couldn’t go anywhere.. we couldn’t visit anyone. There was nothing open, aside from jobs of essential workers.

We all stayed home.. and thought.. and thought..and thought.

Transitioning back into some version of normalcy, we’ve moved on.. but.. have we moved forward?

…..

Right now, decide on one task you want to accomplish. Is it a savings goal? Is it a vacation? Maybe a new car? Graduating with a Master’s degree?

Once you have identified your goal, make a plan:

Here’s a few questions to consider asking yourself.

  • What steps need taken in order for it to be achieved?
  • What does it involve?
  • How much money is involved?
  • What changes can I make now in order to be more efficient?
  • What do I need to do that might be challenging?

Take such steps as the following:

  • break your goal down into smaller tangible tasks.
  • Invest quality time into changing
  • Write everything down
  • Be intentional in the entire process
  • Give yourself patience & grace

The task always seems so hard until you get started! Take time and work out a plan. Break the process down into smaller tasks.

You got this!

With Love and Light,

Nova
