One month only

 

Stop and imagine just for one moment.  You have worked hard this last month, you woke up early to do the morning commute for one or two hours in to work.  You have dealt with the insatiable demands of your manager and the incessant questions from subordinates, or the queries arising from curious and unappreciative customers.  

It’s lunch time and you take a quick peek at your email and it is that time of the month – bills coming in.  Not bad, tomorrow is payday! But, the wages fail to hit YOUR bank.  Some problem with payroll and they don’t see a solution in sight but they have assured to give you an IOU for some amount of money that does not meet your need.  When the problem is resolved, the balance due will be paid with next  month’s wages.

Just one month wages messed up through no fault of yours and your total financial system is ruined temporarily.  We have been conditioned to live from one pay check to the other with slim chances of breaking free, one month’s paycheck can be the beginning of a poverty cycle.

Imagine!

It is not the payroll next time, it is ill health. You or any member of the family can fall ill anytime without notice, requiring your attention and time away from work.  Unplanned time. One month or one week.  

How many weeks can you afford without pay with no effect on your lifestyle or set you back into a poverty trap?  Do the math.  After all, #YHTK.

Save!      Invest!      Plan!     Multiple streams of income!     Network! Build!    Trade!   Sell!    Leverage!    Skills!    Character!    Attitude!

How many windows do you have opened?

Life truly is full of ups and downs. No one stays on a permanent roll of ups and ups. No matter how positive and optimistic you are, you will have your moments of doubts and reflection even if they are iota doses.

I experienced an absolute melt down last week and thankfully was able to find out it was pure hormonal.  Many times though, mental chaos and melt down comes as a result of processing too many things in the head or in your mind, all at the same time.  Just like opening too many windows on the computer, first it slows down and then it crashes if you don’t proceed to shut some inactive windows down.

Watch out this week for the open windows and remember to shut them as you go before your system crashes.  Listen and obey the body. It’s another winning week.
