Hard to Get Going – Yet Once You Do…
Seems like we always dream of what if.
What if I would have started this years ago?
What if I never did that?
What if I just start tomorrow?
Seems like the hardest challenge is getting out of the “what if” stage and starting some momentum. When it comes to debt we only see the piles of bills. We only see the mess we made. We only see we have no energy today and that may tomorrow we can start. So we just go buy some new toy to take our mind off of it and feel better.
And so the cycle continues….
The hard part is gaining the momentum of action. Who gives a flying squirrel about those “what ifs?
(public service announcement ~~ duck when you see a flying squirrel coming)
So what happens when we have momentum? Once we see some progress we need to let it roll!! Yes, don’t stop that ball from rolling, run faster! Work harder. You can do it!
I noticed the past few days I was feeling down about all the “what ifs” I had. The more I thought of the “what ifs” The more bummed I got. Maybe I was asking the wrong “What ifs”? What if (couldn’t help myself) ….what if I should have asked….What if I never started this path of clean up? Wow, then I realized all I had to lose and all I had to gain. That the reason for the snowball approach to attacking our debt is to help show us the power of momentum.
I know this post probably sounds like I’m rambling and maybe I am. I wasn’t sure where I was going with it but I was thinking and typing at the same time.
“What if” I don’t keep moving? … hmm…
“What if” I don’t keep a positive outlook on the future?” … hmmm
“What if” I was completely out of debt? … Ahhhh
Now the smile shows.
Maybe this post is more about the “What ifs”. Maybe I can get the rock to roll over the them?
