Activity #11


Why can't you hold onto your money? Why are you living pay check to pay check?

When I was in debt, I couldn't hold onto my money because my cost of living was too high for the amount of money I was making. I didn't want to reduce my cost of living because I wanted to appear like I had money. But I just ended up causing more issues for myself because I wanted to appear wealthy when I wasn't.

Best wishes,

Activity #13


Did you buy all or most of your gifts on the Internet this year? How do you delay gratification when you are shopping online? How do you stay within your budget when buying online?


I usually stay away from online shopping all together. It is way too easy to spend on the online. However, this was quite different for me because I have been so busy! Therefore, I did do some shopping online.


Best wishes,

What are you worrying about right now? Will you be worrying about it in 5 years?

Example: I am worried that my dreams will not come true. I will be worrying about it in 5 years if I don't determine what dreams I want to come true.

To my blog readers, I am a little behind on this count down. I apologize for this. My life has been a little crazy these past couple of weeks. I am praying for everyone on my prayer list. I hope you are doing well.

Best wishes,

How much time do you spend reading each day?

I have found that there is a direct correlation between wealth and how much a person reads. Many successful people and CEOs read a book a week or listen to a book a week. You don't want to ever stop learning!

Do you care what others think of you? If so, did this get you into debt? Are you in debt or having financial trouble because of the social pressure? What can you tell yourself to not care what other people think of you?

I know this one is a hard one for me. I am still trying to not care what others think and say about me.

Activity #21

Draw a road map of your life and your future life. What does it look like? Now, up your financial dreams on that road make. Are they aligned with your road map? Or do things look different?

We all need to look hard at what we want out of life and not focus on the social programming. Follow your own heart and dreams not someone other than yourself.

Activity #30


Have you ever heard of the the 30 Day strategy? This strategy is a way to test out a new habit for 30 days. Just like in software companies, they offer free 30 day trials as a test period. This give customers the chance to test out their software for 30 days and see if they like it.


What new money habit can you do for 30 days?

Example: I am going to pay cash for everything for 30 days (food, gas, etc.).
