Many of you are familiar with my use of “IHHE Moments” – I Have Had Enough Moments.
These are moments when you really have had enough, and things change.
However, I see a lot of people who are confused. They believe that they have had an “IHHE Moment”, but really they have just had a “Boo Hoo Moment”.
Here are some examples of “Boo Hoo Moments”:
- Cry over debt situation but continue to use the credit cards
- Frustrated by poor credit but do not address old/bad debt
- Sad that the bills are not being paid on time but they are not planning their spending
- Sob about the broken down car but no money is in the savings account
These are “Boo Hoo Moments” – they are sad about the issues, but are not willing or do not know how to make the changes necessary.
I’ve heard it said this way: “When the pain of same exceeds the pain of change – that’s when we change.”
Are you having “Boo Hoo Moments” in your life or “IHHE Moments”?
