Good day to you all, I have been enjoying The Matters of Money week. Today I want to discuss how we should purpose every dollar that comes in our hands. This is especially important as we are in this time of year. A lot of people tend to look at your tax refunds, school loans refunds, and bonuses on our job as extra money. The reality is, there is no such thing as extra money, if you have money in your possessions than it should be purposed for something. When you don’t put a purpose on every dime that comes in your hand, you are more than likely going to spend it frivolously.
Do you remember the time you had an extra 100 dollars or so in your bank account after all your bills were paid, so you thought that was your sign to blow the money? After all, you did the responsible thing and paid your bills. Then the very next week an unexpected bill comes up that was the exact amount of the so-called extra money you had the week prior. Yelp I remember those times as well. See money comes to you with a mission and a purpose, and it is our job to discern that mission and purpose. If we don’t, we will always find ourselves coming up short. So it isn’t that we don’t have enough money to pay our bills, it is that we didn’t discern the purpose of the money we had, so we misallocated our money into the wrong places.
Moving forward never let a dime come into your bank account that isn’t purposed for something. This will keep you disciplined and will create a supply to fulfill every expected and unexpected need.
