Welcome to the Friday FinTips newsletter, where I provide tips to simplify how you manage money.
Our financial journeys can be long sometimes. Maybe you haven’t reached your goal yet, but you’re moving forward and that’s worth celebrating. So celebrate!
What I Did
We have a lot of financial goals we’re working towards. Some of them are going to take years to complete, like saving for a car, a home, or retirement. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get really frustrated with how long it’s taking to reach our goals. Sometimes it feels like we’re not making any progress.
But we are!
Like climbing up a mountain, it can feel like you aren’t making progress until you turn around and see how far you’ve gone. The same is true with your financial journey. We haven’t reached our goals, but we have made HUGE progress.
We really try to “stop and smell the roses” every once in a while to appreciate our progress and acknowledge our hard work. Those moments of gratitude keep us motivated for the long haul. I highly recommend them!
What You Can Do
Sometimes your journey can be long and it’s hard to remember why you got started. Here are 3 tips that might help:
Set goals and use them as motivation to stay focused.
Break those goals down into smaller steps.
Take time to appreciate how far you’ve gone!
You got this! Enjoy the weekend.
