And five, four, three, two, one…save money? You morning workout causes you to sweat, your muscles to burn and your heart to pound. Your workout is hard, but a job well done makes you proud. Saving money is no different. So next time you turn on that work out video think about what you are learning about saving money while getting in shape.
Ten More Seconds
When you are burned out, those last ten seconds can feel like an eternity, but every second counts! Same with saving money; the sooner you start the better. Every second counts and every dollar adds to the total amount. It isn’t always easy to save money, but every dollar deposited will start earning interest and increasing in value. Find the best bank to earn the best interest rate on your saved money.
Give Me All You’ve Got
When it gets uncomfortable and you want to give up, you hear the phrase, “Give me all you’ve got! When it gets uncomfortable is when it counts the most!” To save money you shouldn’t give everything to savings, but you should push yourself a little to save a little more than is 100% comfortable. Sacrifice something today to save for the future.
One Day At A Time
Getting in shape takes time, as does saving money. Just as you won’t reach your weight loss goals after one hard work out, you won’t reach your savings goal with one good deposit. It takes time, dedication and lots of months of deposits. The best savings accounts offer direct withdrawals from a checking account into a savings account. This helps you consistently deposit money and not have to remember or worry about it. Give yourself time and be dedicated to saving money.
You will Love Me Later
As hard as the workout is, you are usually glad you did it, especially when you start to see the reward of your hard work. After you continually invest into a savings account you see the balance start to increase. You will have enough money in your emergency fund, retirement accounts set up and even money saved to cover a vacation or large expense with cash, not credit.
One Pound At A Time
Losing in weight happens one pound at a time. You can’t lose weight if you don’t start. Saving money is no different. It happens one dollar at a time. One dollar saved instead of spent is one dollar you can depend on having when you might need it. Don’t get overwhelmed thinking you have to save hundreds of dollars each month. Start simply with an amount that is comfortable, but maybe a little uncomfortable.
Work Out To Save
Saving money is hard. It takes sacrifice, dedication and consistency. Set an amount you feel good about, open a savings account, set up direct withdrawals and give your account time to grow and increase in value. Believe me; you will be glad you did. So start today to save money.
