I read in a book recently that change requires 2 things:
- We must understand what’s in it for us
- There has to be proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the benefit to us will actually occur or that we can get there.
It’s crazy how true this is in our finances!
When people get a clear picture of what’s in it for them long term and they embrace the proof beyond a reasonable doubt that they can actually get there, they change. They start saving. They get out of debt. They protect their family with insurance. It’s a beautiful thing and keeps us going!
