Keeping a journal can be a helpful habit for many reasons. When it comes to self-doubts it can help you to:
Keep a realistic record of your life.
And help you to remember the positive things, the successes you have had and how you have overcome obstacles if you are prone to remembering things with a negative slant.
Gain clarity more easily.
It is often easier to alleviate fears and doubts and to gain clarity if you have an issue laid out on paper or in a computer document rather than if you try to go through it all in your mind. By making lists of pros and cons, going through your thoughts and emotions and similar events from the past and by writing down different perspectives on the issue it becomes easier to find solutions and to see your challenge in a clearer and more level-headed way.
Many illiterates argue that education is time wasting and too expensive.Such persons believe that more emphasis ought to be placed on wealth than education.According to them, a man's children can inherit his wealth but not his education.
This might sound clever. A scrutiny of the argument would however,reveal the weak points therein.
To begin with,education is expensive all right but illiteracy is much more expensive than education.In the long run,the illiterate loses more money than he or she would have saved by not going to school.
Again,wealth can be inherited unexpectedly by any person.That same way,wealth can equally be lost unexpectedly. Education cannot be inherited in any way.
That same way, education once acquired,does not expire and cannot be lost unexpectedly.It abides with the educated man or woman until death.
Educated persons age gracefully.This is not because they are always wealthy in old age.It is because they do not allow situations to weigh them down.
Educated persons study books which address such difficult situations and emulate others who had traveled on the same route. Educated persons may not be very rich,but they understand the vicissitudes of life more clearly than illiterates.
There are many types of investments. However, each of them pales into insignificance when compared to investments made in favor of education.
The above statement which was true during the time of Aristotle,would continue to be true till the end of time.
Last summer I landed a job that doubled my income 💸 So exciting and finally I'm able to contribute properly towards our big goals!
Our dreams for 2018 were buying a house (initial investment 17.000€) and saving up 13.000€ for our wedding. We achieved both! (Still a little bit to go for the wedding fund but almost there!) ✨
These goals took years to achive since we moved countries a few times and I went through periods of unemployment and working part time. But we managed, mostly thanks to my husband's hard work and frugal ways (he's always been great at saving a huge chunk of his income). Now that we have the house and the weddidng fund out of the way, it's time to set our next big money goal. I never would have even dreamed about aiming for 100.000€... Until I stumbled upon a Dutch money blogger @renee_lamboo
She and her partner saved up 100.000€ in just 2 years! 😲 And if she could do it, I can do it too!
We sat down with Mr Husky and took a close look at our finances. Turns out 100k is achievable in 2 years if we save 65% of our net income and I keep my current income.
So a goal was born! ✨
100.000€ in the next 2 years to buy an apartment in Amsterdam.
It won't be easy but we are determined to make it happen 💪🏻 What are your biggest money goals? 🏆
