If you are like me, keeping debt and bad spending habits to a minimum, building financial security and still being able to afford that mocha latte or two can get a little crazy. We all want to manage our finances and save some money.
What is your greatest spending temptation? Tech toys? Video gaming? Do you often forget to bring those leftovers for lunch the next day? Just because an impulse purchase got the best of you doesn’t mean that your big goals are never going to happen. It just a mis-step, one that hopefully will spur you not to repeat it again anytime soon.
Instead, try to focus on your successes. A day without a mistake is more likely to stick in your mind and bring you pride and joy than a day with a mistake or two in it. Use that success day as a source of inspiration and strive to repeat it. Say to yourself, “I know I can do this. I know I can succeed.” Keep your focus on this.
Don’t dwell on mistakes except to ask yourself how to learn, correct and improve on them.
Instead of feeling bad about mistakes and imperfections, focus on feeling good about those moments when you rose above those mistakes and achieved something better
