As You THINK, You Will SEE!
What do you see in your life…your family…your job? Do you see dark clouds…or silver linings? You’ve got to TRAIN your mind to look for the good – you may have to look HARD, but it IS there…and you WILL find it!
“Time” magazine reports 3/4 of Americans, after filing their taxes, will receive refunds averaging $3000…and while this may seem like a huge relief for some people, for others it just looks like an epic shopping spree!
You may have a tax refund check coming your way soon, or perhaps you’ve already received it! So, let’s take a few minutes today to equip you with a PLAN for that money… because, in reality, if you don’t have a plan for your money, it will end up in all the wrong places!
What is a tax refund? I know it may sound silly, but I really want you to think about it. What is it?
A tax refund is just that – a refund of your own hard-earned money, not a random gift or stroke of good luck. It didn’t just come out of nowhere… and it’s NOT extra money. It’s money you worked HARD to earn.
According to Time magazine, 3 out of 4 Americans receive refunds, averaging around $3,000 each, after filing their taxes. And while this may seem like a huge relief for some people, for others it just looks like a free shopping spree. But today, let’s look at what it really is.
See, we (and I’m not just talking about Americans, here) live in a total “microwave” society today, where we do what we want, when we want, just because we can… without a thought for our financial future. And where has that gotten us? We’ve traded our financial freedom for more stuff, more debt and more bondage!
We fall into the “more-more-more” trap, until we find ourselves buried alive in debt. So many people face constant financial strain and yet, we’re more concerned about our stuff, than we are about our long-term financial future!
I know right now you’re saying, “Okay Dani, so what does THIS have to do with my tax refund?”
One rule has proven to be true over and over again, and it is true here. Find out what everyone else is doing and do the exact opposite. You may have heard me say this before: 98% of the population will end up dead or dead broke by the age of 65, dependent on their friends, family or the federal government as their main source of income. On the other hand, 2% are doing well financially.
So what can you do to cross over from the 98% to the 2% this tax season? Here are a few ideas:
Here’s what I know about you. YOU are not called to be one of those “98%” people. You were designed for wealth and freedom. How do I know? Because you’re here right now, reading this. Because you have a desire to succeed financially. You have a desire to see your children, your friends, and your community live debt-free, totally financially independent lives.
I would love to know what you think about today’s message. Are you getting – or already gotten – a tax refund this year? What do you plan to do with it? I can’t wait to read your comments!
