You’re not broke. You’re struggling. Broke is when you have absolutely nothing, and you don’t have absolutely nothing. You probably have a place to live, some food to eat, people who care about you – even though you do not necessarily give them a fair amount of attention. Shift your priorities to the right things, and you will feel a lot richer.
Be patient about your situation knowing this isn’t your time to be flourishing, because that takes time, work, and patience. Everyone is so obsessed with get rich quick schemes and getting things they want right away, because being able to Google incorrect information on your phones that the government is pushing and algorithms holding your attention span make your life more comfortable.
Say, if you do not want to be rich or swimming in designer things, you just want to be comfortable, all you have to do is change your mindset. Recognise what you do have, and acknowledge if you are working on changing your situation or not. If you are working on it, keep going, and find little details, little ways to move up in life.
This could be asking your boss for an extra shift, or being more capable than others at work. It could be doing more things around the house, so your family appreciates you. Don’t think about it. Just do it. The moment you think about it go do it. This applies to working out also. If you know you can’t get a full session in, hop on the treadmill, or go hard outside for five minutes. The faster and harder you go, the more you are focusing on form. You get a better workout when you are one hundred percent concentrated. The same for a shower, doing your hair, or putting on an outfit. The moment it crosses your mind, do it before you take twenty hours to think about it before you forget.
Twenty minutes doing something is better than twenty hours of thinking about doing something.
After that, stay in the habit. Finesse the way you do it. Master everything you touch. Staying consistent is the hardest part, so keep showing up for yourself. Do it until you realise you are not struggling anymore.
