It's the 1st of the Month, Only Better!
Welcome to Monday! Welcome to March!
Fresh week + Fresh month! How did we get so lucky?
I feel energized by today. Any day is a great day to start, but when you start on Monday, there's a special power added to the inspired action you take. Toss in the start of a new month on top of that and it has success written all over it! I'm going to share the two things I do to kick off a successful month.
Secure the Bag. On the 1st of the month I like to take inventory of all my finances. I balance all my accounts and I check in on my credit scores. It is important to have a clear understanding of your finances. Understanding where your money is going will help you set a realistic budget and determine how hard you need to work to pay yourself first and then pay all your bills. I calendar all my upcoming payments for the month and make sure auto-payments are set up correctly. Set up those auto-payments, my friend! It is challenging, but changing my mindset to one of abundance and knowing that I had the money that I needed has changed my life and I know it will also change yours too.You do not want to miss a payment. A missed payment will destroy your credit in an instant and you'll have to work harder to build it back up.
Set Intentions.What do I want to accomplish? What do I have to do in order to accomplish it? I brainstorm ideas and break down my goal into tasks. I determine how long each task will take and then I put them on my calendar. Give your goals some respect. They deserve to be prioritized on your calendar. I calendar my workouts. I calendar my morning routines and meditation plans. I don't calendar my diet yet but it's something I'm considering. Write this stuff down and stick to your plan. Do not keep breaking these promises to yourself.
Organizing my life this way has brought me a lot of success. It sets a foundation for the month that I can build upon and improve as I progress. Try it out. Give yourself some time today to focus on what March could bring you. Set your sights on the future of your dreams and get to work. I'm here working right next to you. Let's see how far we can go.
