Just like these remarkable Ladies, there are so much more… Even in our own South African history:
- There are those who did not just understand the secrets of success but paid it forward to the generations who followed.
- From Our ancestors who thrived in a harsh and untamed wilderness to those who move to unknown lands to start from scratch.
- Strong Women, women Who stood up for our rights and our protection.
- Women who have fought and are still fighting battles – Women who lead by example.
- Women who today still speak out for what IS right = Making a stand. Leaving their mark, their legacy in our world….
But how does this rich history tie into Finance? What does this have to do with what is in your cupboard?
Everything = It is a reflection of the impact of those who have gone before us, the lessons that we have been taught … or what we have not been taught; and the perception of our understanding of what has been given to us. It should be our reflection of gratitude … Proverbs states = When there is no vision / the people Will perish
This is not a history lesson or a “Who has first right” or a religious sermon … This is not a “wihsy-washy” Wish Your dreams come true kind of thing. This is directed to each individual Lady sitting here, reading this blog → to keep an open mind and listen to the message intended for you! For everything happens for a reason and there is a reason why you are sitting here today!
Imagine You are Standing in front of this cupboard = Boring ….. right? There is nothing to wear?
But…What of the Unseen? The proverbial skeletons that take up space in this cupboard?
This is similar to Your financial planning -…. your finances —— Your life. Something is missing
We all come from different backgrounds, influences/houses (unless You are siblings) but even then Your perception of that environment is different to your closest sibling. We are all individually Unique by nature, and our uptake and thoughts of these inferences are just as such…. unique to us. For instance, let’s pretend You have a “Once in a lifetime” event and this is Your cupboard…
Your wedding or even a State Dinner to meet face-to-face the queen of England or Us President Or any international public figure that you will never ever be able to meet again, let alone be able to sit next to at the dinner table … Are you going to use what is in this cupboard? Are you going to borrow from friends and family? Or are you going to go BIG and buy or even have a new outfit tailored for You?
DO You have the ability to do this with what is in Your bank account today, without batting an eyelid? Or swipe a credit card or chase up a Credit limit On a clothing ACC? Are you going to do Your own hair makeup and nails? Or are you going to get a friend to help you? Or are you going to get professional help?
But remember You must still keep up with Your daily/ weekly/ monthly Commitments and did I forgot to mention the event is Tonight!
Realistic … and let us be 110% honest – Which option can you take today?
What if I give you a fourth option? This Complete Cupboard stock with only Your selections and size to fit?
No credit; No if, and, or, but’s ….. And you have in this cupboard a limitless choice?
Can you look like a showroom model or celeb on the red carpet?
What if – You can live your life knowing that whatever may happen – you will be more than just fine or okay? Let’s say this once in a lifetime event is not a happy one … You are diagnosed with Cancer / Parkinsons / Alzheimers today … or have a stroke or heart attack or motor vehicle accident?
Can your financial Cupboard support you for 6 to 9 months of treatment to recovery? Or support You and those Who are dependent on You, for the remainder of Your natural life or until they can Support themself? The facts are and statistics show that 95% of us here …. will not be able to!
Furthermore, can you be assured you will be emotionally strong enough to make it through… after all that you have already been through – can you carry on? Or will this be the straw that breaks the camel’s back?
True life story ….. Mrs SG:
Mrs SG was a young, happily married mother of a 4-year-old boy. Her husband has just started what seemed to be a very successful business and they had everything going for them. New house, new cars, new school for the little one. Everything was fine-and-dandy … or was it?
For one night he did not come to collect her from work. He was not answering his phone. Nobody knew where he was… He was gone!
Unfortunately, more than a week later Mrs S G found her husband – dead, marked as a John Doe in the State Mortuary … How would You feel …. finances aside … Would this be you?
9O’ % of us have had these feelings on a regular basis, even though it was not due to the passing of a loved one or diagnoses of some kind … but rather of other circumstances or situations. Less than 10% of us might never even go through these feelings, reality is we are all going to go through this at some point in our life, or have already gone through it … and might currently be in this turmoil of feelings.
But what if…?
What if there is a way to prepare ourselves? A way to ensure our own Financial and Emotional, Success, Freedom = The certainty of knowing tomorrow the sun will shine again? Knowing that “Money” will be there → “Support” will be there … even if it has never been there before?
It is all possible with the correct planning/ assistance/ motivation/ coaching … with the right “person” by your side, guiding you and providing you with the correct resources and tools… and a few “life-Hacks” along the way.
The same as the clothes in your cupboard …. not one size and style fit all and unfortunately, this is something that the general society wants to imprint on us. Although most do not want to admit to the fact, they also find themselves sometimes standing on the outside looking in … but would rather pretend to fit in just to not draw the wrong attention to themselves.
For those of us who have been standing on the outside for so long, that we have become accustomed to the view and the feelings … this is meant for you!
BUT WHY SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO ANYTHING THAT I HAVE TO SAY?
Cause I have already walk more than just a mile in these shoes, I know what it feels like when there are no longer tears to flow … When the light of day does not even light the dark of the hole you think you are in…
It does not become easier, time does not heal all wounds, and not all friends are really the “correct” influence on your life!
Compare these facts:
Last week at a seminar, which I attend as part of my research, I started off sitting by myself and was joined by a total stranger.
We started talking and I found myself later with an additional two strangers sitting at our table – hanging on to every word that has been exchanged. That being said – I was only made aware later, of the crowd that was standing around our table, who were all also following the conversation…
Once again I realised how little of the knowledge and know-how is actually been shared with those who really need it. Even those who are willing to share their knowledge, their experiences and their “formula” to success – are only willing to do so at a HUGE PRICE TICKET… Or even bigger Commissions that indirectly affect each and every Mrs YOU out there.
Now let’s be honest, where are you sitting today?
Are you enjoying every Summer Sunset and Spring Flower that starts to bloom?
Or are you stuck in a Winter of your own discontent?
Or are you just surviving through this Autumn?
Do you want to achieve your own success?
Do you want to maintain a balanced lifestyle?
Do you want to have the financial and emotional freedom you have always dreamed of … but just never seem to achieve?
It’s your choice!
