Habits rule our daily lives. From what we do when we first awaken to the last thing we complete as we crawl into bed, we are controlled by habit.
Habits allow our brain to take a break from the mundane, to power down for rest, or even to focus on other things.
Tweak those habits, and you tweak your life.
Place a single penny into your change jar, then check off that day on your calendar every single day for a month.
Just one penny. When you drop that penny into the jar tell yourself “I’m saving money; I’m living beneath my means.”
See how long you can keep the chain going. If you want to drop more change into the jar do it, but the goal every single day is to deposit one penny into your little savings account.
You are not to touch that money. That money is your savings. Every time you deposit a penny, you are that much closer to financial freedom. Don’t worry about the details right now; just get into the habit of depositing at least a single penny into your savings jar.
I dare you.
