Both your quality of life and the size of your bank account matter.
How would you rate the quality of your life? And how would you rate the quality of your bank account? You may not realize it, but the decisions we make every day about the quality of our life impacts our bank account and quite possibly the quality of our life in the future.
Now, you shouldn’t feel guilty about the decisions you make today. Most of us already have enough guilt around money. I want you to be confident about your financial decisions. Strut down the street confident! In order to feel guilt free about your financial decisions, you need to make conscious choices about what your money goes towards. This includes allocating money to both purchases as well as saving and investing.
For example, I don’t cut coupons. I just don’t. I’m sure you’ve seen the extreme coupon cutting TV shows where you will see how people are saving tons of money, but not me, I value my time too much to spend hours snipping. This does not add to my quality of life. Everyone is different and has to decide for themselves what aspects of their life they willingly choose to spend their money on.
I know you watch LimorTV because you aspire to be Financially Fabulous and you’re probably already taking action! Think about how you can take advantage of and enjoy free experiences all around you? That may just be as simple as spending quality time with the people you care about most. Free experiences are an excellent way to enjoy life without adding any financial strain.
So many of us are so busy in our lives that we don’t stop to enjoy the little things in life, that most often don’t cost anything. Doing this will allow for more of your money to be allocated to saving, investing and funding the rest of your life. I’m sure you want to have a fabulous life every single day, even in your golden years.
