2017 The Year of Empowerment - Principles for February-Financial Diligence

Book: “Girl, Get Your Money Straight!” by Glinda BridgforthWebsite: www.thefourcups.comEvery year in celebration of the new beginnings, it is Southern tradition to prepare a special meal to usher in a prosperous new year.  So we pull out Aunt Bea’s secret recipe for what we think will help us gain financial prosperity.  It is legend that this special meal of black-eyed peas and cabbage greens provides good luck to help us see more clearly into the future; and an abundance and overflow of money that will find its way into our lives.  But, what about the right recipe for financial success?  How do we grow this abundance and overflow of money into sustainable wealth?Simply, we must be good stewards, and be very diligent with the money that we are honored to receive in our lifetime.  It’s not about how much you make, but what you do with it.  If we can’t show diligence in how we manage the $100 we have today, what makes us think we will be able to maintain more blessings and riches tomorrow?The 2015 US Census determined that the US median household income is $55,775.  Now, close your eyes and just take a second.  Think about how much you make in a year, now multiply that by 4, now multiply that by 10.  That’s a very nice 7 figure income!!! Oh, how exciting it is for the revelation that we are already millionaires!  This exercise shows us that we all have the potential to have a million dollars that runs through our hands in our lifetime. Instead of being concerned on how to obtain our million, we should readjust our focus to being diligent stewards of the riches bestowed upon us in order to reap our full harvest.
