Recently, I stumbled across a list of entrepreneurial success tips. While reading them I thought they were perfect for this blog. The tips are:
Passion- love what you do, work never feels like work if you love your job
People- surround yourself with bright, energetic, optimistic people
Planning- always update your plan
Persistence- continue to work your plan and never give up
Personal Well Being- it is important to take a break
Profits- you are in business to make a profit
Why are these perfect for blog readers like you and me? They are perfect for 5 distinct reasons.
First, it is important to find work that pays the bills and hopefully satisfies you at the same time. I realize that you may not love your job but you need the money to pay the bills. A majority of the population is likely stuck in jobs and around people that they don’t like because it pays the bills. I have been there and it isn’t fun but it is necessary to survive.
Second, in your personal life, you want to align yourself with individuals who are helpful. Ideally, these people will also believe in your abilities and boost you up. If you have people in your life who are hurting your finances then you may need to reevaluate those relationships. See my blog post about toxic friends, which by the way is one of the most popular blog posts I have written to date. I guess we all have toxic friends.
Third, you want to have a plan of attack for your debt and a way to track your progress. It is best to have a plan because you know what direction to steer your personal finance life boat. With your plan in hand, you are now in control and heading in the right direction.
Fourth, we need to never give up on ourselves and our goals. You want to keep working hard towards your goals and never, never, give up.
Fifth, you want to reward yourself for all of your hard work. By loving yourself and treating yourself with inexpensive treats you will stay motivated and feel rejuvenated. This is also another popular post- rewarding yourself with inexpensive treats.
