You Wasn’t With Me Liftin’ In The Gym!
I was in the gym earlier this month (very rare) and I started thinking. Personal fitness is very similar to personal finance. You set goals, you work toward them every week, and your success won’t happen overnight. If you want to be strong, you’re going to have to work out three to four times per week. Make sure you eat right and maintain the proper diet, so your body gets everything it needs to get stronger. Also, build a workout plan that gets the results you want.
Similarly, if you want to be financially secure, you’re going to have to set out a plan and stick to it. Be sure to watch your weight, that’s your net worth. Make sure your workout yield the results you want, this would be your monthly budget. Also, you have to watch what you eat, be sure to monitor your behavior with money.
