I like to see the world as being full of opportunities. Maybe I’m a bit of an idealist. Maybe I’m not representing the world that we all live in. But there are a lot of us that can feel fortunate.
But when these opportunities do come along you’ve got to be ready to act upon what you’ve discovered. We could be talking about your money, or your life in general. The risk of not doing is very often bigger than the risk of doing. Not every opportunity is right for you, but if you simply run away from every single thing put in front of you then it's far harder to get ahead.
|Money, money, money|
It’s like leaving your car in the garage to protect it from the rain. Only you haven’t checked on it for months and when you do get to look at it the car doesn’t work, it’s rusted away and there’s a pigeon living in the glove compartment.
That’s the point. You need to be fully engaged either way. So even if you choose to run away from a problem or a situation, sticking your head in the sand shouldn’t be an option. Empowering yourself to make decisions should be. Think about your money in your context.
It’s about taking control of whatever life throws at you. You don’t always have to create from scratch. You simply just have to take responsibility and control.
