You are ultimately the one in charge of your own life, what you make of your life is up to you. Each step you take in life is a decision that you yourself make. Nobody else can make you move unless you allow them to.
It is ultimately your decision to either hold yourself back in life, or run ahead and accomplish all the wonderful amazing opportunities that you want to accomplish in your life.
Do you go with your own decisions or do you usually go with the crowd. I love walking and I find that you can discover many interesting places when you take the least worn path.
You may find new obstacles that you have to negotiate to be able to continue on the track, you may enjoy putting your body to the test and eventually you find your way to the end of the track.
The benefits you receive are knowing that you have succeeded and know that all the effort you had put into it was all worth while.
it is always very enjoyable to be there and watch the reaction of someone who has just passed the finish line of a race in first place, the exhilaration on show as they realize that all their effort has paid off.
Most likely we were not there when they were struggling up hill at one point in the race, when in their mind the obstacles of negative thought crept in and they were not feeling very positive about their position in the race at all at that time.
We all want to succeed as a family and that means financially as well, so the planning and goal setting are much the same, There is a starting line, and a finish line, and there are always obstacles that we have to negotiate around or we may decide to go strait through like a bull at a gate.
It would be unrealistic to say that it is possible to find a race, a plan, or any sort of goal that has to be accomplished that have no obstacles between the start and finish, Obstacles could be competition, Not knowing the trail from start to finish, Your health, Your shoes, we could go on and on, and on.
Your Family can be a great incentive and encouragement to make something special happen like helping you to change your work circumstances or change your work completely from long hours with little pay to a large online business working only two maybe three hours a day. I know what I would prefer.
A family unit has to rely on the breadwinner or breadwinners who are in some instances constantly maneuvering finances to help keep afloat. They may be working four or five jobs between them, all short hours and with very minimal pay.
Even with these incomes they still fall short of their financial maintenance goals, They may have a very nice home which they bought through a large loan at very low rates which they could handle very easily at that time,, and now a few years later the rates have gone up substantially and they are now paying more than double the monthly payments that they started the loan with.
Are we constantly going to stay in these situations and continue working ourselves to death and still not winning the battle.
