“Not enough” is a phrase we use A LOT. There’s not enough time in the day or money in our bank accounts. The truth is, when it comes to time and money, it’s all about value.
The value that YOU feel you can give or receive in a situation.
Most people have the money to attend a Shania Twain concert. However, if we don’t see value in it, we’ll quickly decline the invitation and choose to spend our time and money elsewhere.
On the contrary, if this is the last tour she’s going on and our best friend is asking, you’d better believe the time and money would be found!
Nothing has changed but how we value the event.
My value for my time is that I do what I enjoy doing.
There are many things we all have to do that we don’t want to – cleaning the bathroom and filing taxes to name a few.
But, when the choice is there, OWN IT.
It’s all about priorities. When we want something, we will find a way to make it happen. Whether that’s moving a schedule around or pulling longer days to bring in extra income.
So, I’ve changed my narrative from “I don’t have enough [time or money]” to “I’ve chosen to do something else instead.”
This simple change in the way I talk to myself has helped me to manage my time and money around the things that are important to me.
By paying attention to the way we talk to ourselves, we can manage our time and money on the things that are important to us.
