Make it Happen - who else will?

We need to make it happen, whatever "it" happens to be. The reason I say this is because it's rarely ever in anyone's best interest to do it for you.

After all, what do they get out of it except perhaps a warm fuzzy feeling?

Whether you have a plan to get out of debt, build wealth or start your own business, you have to do it yourself. You have to lead and cheer yourself on. And, you have to correct course as your plan unfolds to make certain you achieve.

Thomas Jefferson tells us, "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude." If you adopt a can do attitude, then you're much more likely to be successful.

Adopt the wrong attitude, and you'll go nowhere fast. You'll be a non-achiever. What good is that?

Unfortunately, many of us have been taught that someone is going to decide for us, do for us, and help us along every step of the way. Many of us have relegated ourselves to being victims of "the times," circumstances, the economy, and others - whatever!

It's the wrong way to think.

You must understand that whatever good and meaningful thing takes place in your life will be because you make it happen, not because someone else is looking out for you.

If you think that someone else is going to take your part and look out for you, it will be a rare situation indeed. If you're not willing to at least try to look out for yourself, how in the world do you expect to motivate others to do it for you?

Unless someone has some political motivation or wants to be seen as a hero, there isn't much of a chance that they would have more interest in your well-being than you would, so you're the one that needs to act.

Make it happen or make up your mind to stay right where you're at.

Done with Make it Happen, back to Mindset of Frugality

There certainly is a broad scope of topics here at Frugal Living Freedom. When you think about it, money permeates so very many activities in our lives, therefore, being frugal encompasses a wide range of interests, from being employed to taking a vacation, and just about everything in between. Enjoy the variety, pick up some new ideas, and start making frugality a part of your signature.

I'm a big proponent of being debt-free, and I mean entirely debt-free - no mortgage payment. It's not essential for financial freedom, but you'll love the feeling once you get there. If you didn't have a rent or mortgage payment, how much more could you do for yourself with your current level of income? I suspect plenty.

If you ever hope to see an abundance of wealth, you need to plug the hole in your boat. The wealthy don't necessarily make lots of money, instead, they know how to hang onto what they make, and make it work for them.
