The art of making time is most probably my greatest challenge at the moment. Yes, this is all about money, but I've also learned over the past 8 weeks that nothing happens in isolation.
Life goes like that ... we are all enthusiastic about the commitment, which lasts a few weeks or months and then life falls back into routine. However, this online money magic program with Donna McCallum AKA Fairy Godmother has been so life changing, that I don't see myself falling in those old patterns too easily. I don't see myself giving up on my budgets now that I know how empowering it is to understand what my money and I are doing together and I don't see myself stopping my savings and building my money wealth now that I understand what it can do for my future.
I certainly don't see myself stopping my daily journal of gratitude or saying my afformations (learn more with about the difference between them and affirmations) any time soon.
Why would I when, in this short space of time, I have gained another client, begun paying off my credit card, started my savings, learned to understand my relationship with money and started to understand the potential of all that I can have in terms of wealth.
That's week 8 ... getting into the nitty gritty of investment and how to build that wealth.
I remember the first week, when Donna said that we would be building wealth and saving within a few weeks. When there is no relationship with money and you are too scared to figure out how much you truly have and where you are spending it, then it seems like savings will be impossible. I don't believe in coincidence, so it's perfect timing that my 40th birthday (less than a month away now), the end of my car payments (TODAY) and the understanding of how to build financial wealth have all fallen into alignment at one time.
It's about 5:15am and I'm wide awake and blogging because the little child inside has been too excited to sleep. Knowing I could wake up and see my last car payment has been ridiculously exciting. Firstly, my baby car is mine and I truly love her. I have worked my butt off to keep her and even extended car payment for an extra 3 years to make sure I didn't lose her ... so there's celebrating to be done. I think a car wash with all the bells and whistles are in order later today.
On the other hand, I now have additional money to first use to pay of my credit card (because this course has taught me the value of clearing dept first) and then to use to build a more solid foundation to my wealthy and secure future. I can't begin to tell you how that very thought went from very daunting to super exciting in 8 incredible weeks.
So time management is still a bit of a struggle. I'm 5am blogging because this was my Sunday task and I couldn't stick to my Monday night commitment of doing my money work because of an event, but my other lesson in life is NO RULES. I get myself stuck and obsessed with routine and life certainly doesn't work that way. If anything, I now know that money needs 'flow' and calm in order to truly function.
Tonight, while I am celebrating my step closer to financial freedom now that my car is mine, I highly recommend that you join Fairy Godmother on a FREE WEBINAR about her #MoneyMagic course from 7 to 9 pm.
