My Favorite Thoughts This Year

Every now and then I have a thought that really strikes a chord within me. I usually write it down in Evernote. Here are a few of the personal finance thoughts that resonated with me this year:

  1. “I’ve rarely met a person who felt they could “afford” to save, but a few somehow navigate those feelings & save ANYHOW.”
  2. “I changed my life when I experienced an IHHE Moment – an I Have Had Enough! Moment!”
  3. “My favorite word to use is “Awesome!” My favorite 3 words to use are “I’m fired up!”
  4. “The facts are so obvious – those who invest: win; those who do not: whine”
  5. “It’s not a popular word these days, but “SACRIFICE” (1) gets people’s attention, (2) creates focus, and (3) unites people together!”

What is the financial thought that really stuck with you this year?

How To Have The BEST Financial Year Of Your Life

How To Have The BEST Financial year Of Your Life

SPECIAL INVITATION:  Join Joseph Sangl, founder of I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. for this special LIVE on-line event.

Dear Friend,

Henry David Thoreau once wrote this amazing quote: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”

As I’ve traveled the United States and Canada teaching hundreds of thousands of people about winning with money, I’ve seen this to be true about many people’s financial situation. The mass of men are indeed living lives of quiet financial desperation! They are desperate for an answer to their financial challenges. They are sick of living paycheck-to-paycheck. They are exhausted from attempting to “just work more” to satisfy their financial needs. They are skeptical of who they can truly trust when it comes to the money they are actually able to save.

Let me ask you a question: Are you ready to have the BEST financial year of your life?

If your answer is “YES!” you definitely do not want to miss this upcoming special LIVE on-line event!

THIS EVENT WILL HELP YOU KEEP YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION!

Every year, one of the top 3 New Year’s Resolutions involves money with goals like: “pay off debt”, “make more money”, and “save money.”

I truly believe you can have the best financial year of your life in 2014, and it is for this reason I’m hosting this event.

U.S. National Debt Update – December 2013

The US National Debt has increased by $755,668,013,559 since our last update on January 2013.  Another eleven months, and the United States has dropped another cool $755.7 billion in the hole.

National Debt as of 12/02/2013

$17,205,406,679,181

That is an increase of $2.347 BILLION PER DAY since our last update 322 days ago.

BUT – FINALLY – There is SOME good news!

According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO.gov), the United States has closed the deficit gap by more than 50-percent!

CBOFiscalGov2013

The deficit gap has been closed by several factors, including:

  • Increased tax revenues from a recovering economy
  • Increased tax revenues from new taxes
  • Decreased expenditures – due to sequestration

You can read the CBO’s entire report HERE.

If you aren’t already, I encourage you to become an informed taxpaying citizen. You CAN make a difference in the future decisions that are made regarding the fiscal decisions your elected leaders make.
