What do you believe in?
What are you committed to doing—and not doing?
Have you ever written your commitments down? Have you ever encapsulated your beliefs? Your code? Your statement of faith?
Having a written creed helps a lot to stay true to the things you hold dear. It reminds you and helps you to stay focused on the things that truly matter to you.
It’s good to remind ourselves of our accomplishments. It builds our confidence to focus on what we’ve done, what we’re good at and things we’ve succeeded in doing. Because it’s all too easy to focus on what we DIDN’T do, what’s yet undone and things we’ve failed at.
The age-old adage of “Focus on Your Strengths” is a tried and proven strategy for living your best life.
One of the easiest ways to consistently build our confidence and focus on what’s worked and what’s working for us is to maintain a “Victory List”.
People often say it’s hard to save. But it sure is easy to spend money on seemingly inexpensive things. And they do add up.
By foregoing some of these small expenses, you can easily add hundreds of dollars a month to your retirement account. That means you can retire earlier and/or live better than you would be able to otherwise.
