Budgeting: Planning or Punishment?

Do you set up your budget to limit your spending (Punishment) OR do you set up your budget to receive more income (Planning)?

In your thoughts lies your reality. If you think “I can’t afford it”, you won’t be able to come up with the funds to ever get “it”. If you think “I can save up or increase my income to afford it”, you will be amazed at what will happen that will create the ability to afford it.

Buddha states: “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our own world.”

Set your budgets up to plan for more income and then watch what happens.


About Gary

I am retired, but not tired. I still want to be valuable to others. I know that others are valuable to me. After looking back on six decades, I have asked myself this question: “What do I believe?” My mind filled up. My heart started beating faster. My spirit soared. I post blogs to share what my mind is working on, what my heart believes would help others and, what my spirit is communicating to me. What do I believe, you ask? Decisions dictate your path In love, not hate In tolerance, not prejudice In health, not sickness In wealth, not poverty In kindness, rudeness In happiness, not sadness In encouragement, not discouragement In faith, not doubt In courage, not fear I have been and will be challenged in each one of these beliefs, but the biggest belief is to stay positive and not turn negative. This belief helps me maintain all of the others.
