Why Not You?

Post image for Why Not You?

Why not you? I watched the Super Bowl on Sunday along with over 100 million other people. This is not an analysis of the game, an explanation for the unlikely winner or review of the commercials. It is about something I heard during an interview of Russell Wilson. His father used to encourage Russell to dream big! If you are waiting for something to happen magically, you will wait a long time.  Read More…

Post image for Attitude Is Everything!

Attitude is everything! If you think you will succeed, you will. “If you say you can or you can’t you are right either way.” (Henry Ford) If you want to make a change, you should start with attitude! If you do not believe you will succeed, you will not. This is the time of year when we set goals or make resolutions to change something in your lives. Why attitude is everything? Read More…

Post image for Would a Countdown Clock Make You More Productive?

I was reminded of a countdown clock as midnight approached on New Year’s Eve. As often as I watch sports, I sometimes forget that the clock which counts down to zero as the game continues. Does this create urgency amongst the players to perform? I do not know, but the winners do! Perhaps, we need a countdown clock for every day of our lives to motivate us!  Read More…

Success Is Easy!

Post image for Success Is Easy!

Success is easy! All you have to do is follow some easy steps. I can think back to school the first time I had a bad grade. My parents sat me down and asked me what I needed to do? All I had to do was listen in class, do my classwork, homework and study a little. Those few steps helped me succeed in school! Whenever I slipped, I just needed to remind myself of these steps!

Post image for How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions and Much More!

Keeping your New Year’s Resolutions is easy!  If it is so easy, why do so many people break them every year? It starts with how you make them! Typically, you are just hours from midnight on New Year’s Eve and a friend asks you what your New Year’s Resolutions are? You probably have a drink in your hand and you just rattle off a couple things you soon forget.  Is that you? Read More…

Post image for Being Rich or Poor Is a Choice!

Rich or poor is a choice!  I realize that some of you may feel this is controversial, but give it some thought. You have control of yourself and you are not a victim. People who are rich, work hard. People who are poor generally make poor choices. It starts very young with education, role models and goals. Most rich people did not start out that way.  They made a choice and you can too!

Post image for Things I Do Daily to Keep Focused on My Goals!

I thought I would share some of the things I do daily to stay focused on my goals! About thirty-six (36) years ago, I created my plan to achieve financial independence. I set my goals to reach them in about nine (9) years and I beat it by two (2)! I was laser focused on my goals to the point of having daily tasks and monitoring them weekly/monthly. Life is complicated, but I tried to simplify it so I could achieve my goal.  Read More…

Buying a used car will save you money, but a classic, muscle or antiques cars may actually make you money. You still have to choose your car carefully, but these cars usually increase in value unlike your typical car which decreases in value as soon as you buy it.

What If?

by Krantcents · 26 comments

Post image for What If?

Many years ago, I used to do “what if” scenarios. As I get older, I find I reflect on my decisions much more and often do “what if” scenarios as a way to plan for the future. I think my ability to plan well helped me achieve or accomplish much more than others. After all, how do you improve your decision making or judgment if you do not reflect on your decisions? Do you reflect on your decisions?  Read More…
