Recently I was talking to a few friends about saving for our kids college, and I was surprised when they said they hadn’t started yet! The more we chatted, the more I learned that they reason they hadn’t started, was because they couldn’t afford it! The scary thing is, they are not alone!! And it’s not because they spend tons of money on frivolous things, it’s because so many people are living paycheck to paycheck and praying for a raise or promotion!
We have to get out of that mindset though of waiting and praying for change! I’m a firm believe in God providing, but I also believe he gave us skills and brains and wants us to use them. Instead of waiting, choose to promote yourself! Choose to invest in yourself. Choose to believe YOU can make it happen.
A few years ago, I did just that! My husband and I were living paycheck to paycheck and with two young kids, I would be spending an arm and leg putting them in daycare so I could return to work. I did something different than most people. I chose ME! I chose to believe I could be successful working from home. I chose to be my own boss. I chose to put my future and my families, in my own hands!!
Yes its hard, but I don’t worry about losing my job each day. I don’t feel bad when I have to call out due to a sick kid. I don’t worry about missing out on school activities or milestones with my kids. I choose to believe in myself and that if I want it bad enough, I can make it happen!!!
Life is too short to wait for that promotion, choose to promote yourself! Choose to be your own boss. Choose to have a job you love. I choose me!!! Do you???
