Personal Finance Challenge #46: You Always Are In Control

Perhaps this is the most profound idea in the whole personal finance world and life in general…

That you are always, 100%, totally in control of the decisions that you make.

Many, many people feel totally out of control when it comes to personal finances. They can’t save money, they lose money, they try to make plans and those plans fail, they get hit with unexpected expenses, they can’t pay their bills on time, they can’t afford the debt that is now trying to swallow them whole…

The list goes on…

The important thing to remember is that you are always in control, you always have a choice. No matter how hard it seems, there is always a way out.

Will it be easy? Nope.

Is there a way to quickly change the circumstances in which you have found yourself? Probably not.

But there is hope. There is a way. And there is life on the other side of all the bad things you are facing now.

You can change, and by changing, change the circumstances of your life. You can create a whole new beginning. And bring the darker moments of your life to a close. You are the narrator of your own story. Don’t ever forget that!

This is our 46rd challenge in The Personal Finance Challenge Series…
