There’s too much dogmatism in our culture. People are convinced that their way is the right way to do things. When you get trapped by the belief that there’s just one right way to do something, you set yourself up for failure. When something works for you, you have a tendency to believe it’s the right choice for everyone else. For this 1-2 step investment approach, it’s really up to you!
- There’s no right way to pay off debt
- There’s no right or single way to invest or perfect financial product
- There’s no one single right way to tackle your mortgage
- There’s no right or wrong way to be frugal - Some people are unwilling to “go green” or “go organic” and even unwilling to take public transport. That’s fine; it’s their choice and “thing.”
People have different upbringing, culture, passion and priorities!
Also, allow yourself to consider other options, different perspectives which will open you up to multiple paths to success. When you spend so much time looking for the “best” choice that you never actually do anything, you’re sabotaging yourself. The perfect is the enemy of the good.
Life is about cause and effect in general. When you pursue or do something, you better be prepared for the potential outcomes. And if you don’t do anything about your finances, then things will remain the same and you don’t get to achieve your goals or live your dreams!
