this is my thoughts in the way that I view it from
people trying to achieve, I think this goal is perhaps
trying to make cutbacks in areas of their life where
they may not need to.
I often see people who say they can’t afford to invest
in coaching, or they can’t afford to eat healthily, they
can’t afford to get a gym membership and all these
sorts of things, but then they’ll have things such as
Sky TV for example.
They’d have an expensive package that’s possibly
costing them £50+ a month where they could easily
cut that down to be a cheaper program and yes,
they might miss out on a couple of things but
realistically, I’ll ask this question.
How much value is that package actually
adding to your life?
Because I’ve seen it so often where people slowly get
themselves into feeling less and less confident, they
get and more overweight and they retract into their
shell more and more.
They ultimately change who they are, all because they
chose not to invest (its always a choice) in themselves.
And I’m not a big person who tries to push investing
thousands and thousands of pounds you don’t have,
however, what I am a big believer in is we should be
making conscious decisions on where we invest our
money longer term.
Because once we are aware of it, we can start to make
So, for me if I was really going to need to find a few extra ££
to invest in something that was important to me, I’d rather get
rid of my Sky than I would get rid of my gym membership,
for example because I know that Sky is going to add minimal
value to my life, Elly’s life, or Aoife-Mae, and it’s really as
simple as that. So, that’s what I am asking, are you, are
your spending habits reflecting your priorities in life.
If they’re not, honestly, I’d take a few minutes when you’ve got
it to look at your spending, look at your priorities and see how
you can make them become more aligned with them.
