How are you, my Frugalistas? I’m doing well, just hustling my book all the time! In honor of the holiday, I wanted to share with you a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr:
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
I absolutely love that quote. It’s all about taking a risk, trying something new, “putting yourself out there.” You have to have confidence to do it, but having confidence is a great thing.
I hope this year that you vow to take some “first steps.” It could be trying a new class that will enhance your career. It could be taking a vow of frugality. It could be applying for the new job you want. It could be deciding to make your personal finance a priority (high five on that one).
My first step? Do more volunteering! I go to charity events. I write checks to charities. I help out here or there. I am not consistent. That needs to change.
Are you taking a “first step” this year? What are you trying new or doing differently? If you aren’t doing anything new, why not? Let’s change that!
