For anyone who as ever made a life altering decision that causes them substantial financial loss, all I can say is stay optimistic and never forget why and how you got in debt. For me, becoming practically financially bankrupt and desperation pushed me to change the way I think so I could take back control of my life. All of the sudden it was simple, I had to change who I was internal to be a success. At the end of the day changing who you are is a personal choice, it is up to you whether you want to change or not.
Your number one obstacle in life is your mindset; it is truly a powerful tool that can work for you or against you. In everyday situations we make decisions on how we feel, that is why you need to separate facts from opinions. Think carefully before you decide if it's fact or opinion, opinions are a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. Data can verify facts and deliver success when implemented.
How do you open up your mind to a prosperous future?
Turn negative thoughts into positive thinking to look at life with new possibilities. The moment I decided to stop feeling sorry for my situation and do something about it everything changed. Be honest with yourself, take the time to assess how you think in any giving situation.
Assume responsibility for your actions and learn to understand ways to improving yourself.
For eight months all I could think about was my problems, I had bills, debts, no directions in life, and no means to solve those problems. Moving towards my goals went against most of my beliefs but in the best way, I was looking at my life as a whole for the first time. Rebuilding a successful life requires you to be self-aware in every situation that occurs, primarily your problem. The change comes when you acknowledge that you have been stuck in the same routine, and it is taking you nowhere fast. Sometimes it is like pulling teeth to change who you are, but success lies in the person you become. Secure your future by being an active part of your life every day. Stop waiting for your boss to pay you, go and create another income stream for yourself. How you plan for the future impact the lifestyle you're living in the present.
Life happens to everyone, all you can do is take active measures to build a safety net. There is no time like the present to start securing your future. The way to plan ahead is to make sure you plan for all possible situations, not waiting for a problem to occur.
