Pay yourself first — Variations

You’ve probably heard of “pay yourself first” when it comes to money management…

Well, a lesser known (but equally effective) tactic is to pay yourself first when it comes to other stuff in life, too…

  • Pay yourself first in encouragement. If you don’t believe in yourself it’s hard for others to also.
  • Pay yourself first in education. Learn the stuff that others aren’t willing to.
  • Pay yourself first in fitness & health. The longer you live, the more you can be there for others.
  • Pay yourself first in self care. You can’t pour from an empty cup.
  • Pay yourself first in time. Get up and show up early.
  • Pay yourself first in feelings. Forgive, drop grudges, be the first to admit fault or say sorry. The longer you hold onto a hot potato, the more it burns and destroys you.

Wishing y’all a great day ahead!
Love, Joel
