Why some idiots don’t Plan out things in life? – Hey, we are not saying this but it’s a message from a “one minute fly” to all of us. The fly is here to ask you one question what do you want to achieve in the one precious, unrepeatable life that you have? Really go deeper and figure out what do you REALLY REALLY RALLY want in your life. What kind of house you would like to live in? What kind of places you would like to visit? What kind of people you would like to meet?
What kind of charity you would like to do? What kind of retirement you would like to have? What kind of wild things you would like to do in your life? What kind of legacy you would like to leave? We all have one financial life and we should make the most out of it. We tell this to all our coaching clients at the end our financial life will either will be a “warning” or an “example”. It is up to us how we create our financial life like an example.
One of the Financial coaching Principles is “Start living a good financial life rather than trying to live a good financial life”. Personal finance is not about what you are going to do next month or next year it is all about what you are doing right now.
We would like you to watch a video and learn some life-changing lessons from it; you can learn the importance of planning from a One Minute Fly.
The video “One Minute Fly” Teaches us the true meaning of life. It teaches us some very important life lessons on how we should live our life. One of our clients after watching the video said “We are the same as this Fly in the video”, he is so true we are just the same. We are here on this earth for a limited period of time and we have to do our best. We have many things to wrap up in the one life we have.
It is therefore important to figure out the important goals of your life and start planning for them. Let me tell you something. This life goes by so fast you cannot believe it. One day you are 25 looking forward to all that life has to offer it, and the next day you are 52. You suddenly get on the other side of those dreams, looking back and wondering where in God’s name all the time went.
You are lucky if you have more time ahead of you than behind you. If not now than when will you start planning. This is the right moment in which you can start creating your financial life. So step fully into your financial life and start making the most out of it. This is not an article, this is life, so dust casualness and laziness from your financial life. We want to leave you with a beautiful poem from the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
If you have eagerness in your heart, it means you are alive,
If your eyes are filled with dreams, it means you are alive
Learn to be free like the wind, Learn to flow freely like the river,
Embrace every moment with open arms,
See a new horizon every time with your eyes,
If you carry surprise in your eyes, it means you are alive,
If you have eagerness in your heart, it means you are alive…
Once you are through with the video take a blank piece of paper and make a list of 100 things that you want to do before you leave this world. It would be great if you can share some of your dreams and goals with us in the comments section. In this moment you can declare your goals with courage, play for your goals with courage and live your goals with courage. If on your own you are not confident take some professional help, spend some money on yourself and get a financial plan or get a financial coach and start taking actions and make the most of the one financial life you have. And don’t forget to comment on what did the FLY TEACH YOU.
