Tipping Points

Every circumstance has tipping points. In the 2017 NFC Championship game, it was Mason Crosby's missed field goal and Aaron Ripkowski's fumble that caused the dominoes to fall, unabated, in the Falcons' direction. A tipping point can be a talent, attitude or presence that cannot be denied. It can also be a weakness, vice or negativity that inhibits your ability to succeed. For me, that vice is my disturbingly poor financial management and spending habits. I have been living at or beyond my means for my entire life. Oscar Wilde, Irish dramatist and novelist is quoted as saying, "Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination." He died, penniless, at the age of 46. Kinda takes the gold out of his nugget of wisdom, now doesn't it?
What weakness, vice or habit is preventing you from succeeding? What are you going to do about it TODAY?
Here is what I am going to do:
Action: I am going to follow my own advice that I posted at the following link: https://www.eycpnow.com/single-post/2017/02/23/Get-Your-Affairs-in-Order-Money
Today's task: Figure out what it would take to live on HALF of what I earn. What current expenses can I live without?
