Are You Letting Yourself Be Controlled?
It's not a pleasant thought that you may be letting yourself be controlled. But if this thought disturbs you, it is wise to examine ways that you could be letting others control you and take appropriate action.
In the article entitled "9 signs that you are setting yourself up to be controlled by other people," there were several signs that may be helpful to review with an emphasis along financial lines:
Someone we know once said, "If you wish to be master of the seven seas, you must make yourself a slave to the compass." You are either controlling yourself or letting yourself be controlled. How can a person master his or her own personal finances unless he or she is willing to exercise financial discipline?
If you have been "letting yourself be controlled" and you don't like it, the first step you must take is to realize just where things went wrong. Examine your attitudes and actions.
Once you identify any problem, you can begin to correct it. Learn to set goals for yourself, the first of which may be to complete a 30-day spending diary (available through our free downloads) to see just where you're spending your money.
We hope that each of our readers makes it a goal not only to be debt-free but to have sufficient savings to accomplish a personal dream come true, whatever that is for you.
We wish you great success. Furthermore, we wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.
