Your relationship with money influences your lifestyle. Learn how you can save money to invest in holistic health.

I’m a planner, and I cannot lie. I plan everything in my life. I know no one is ever in control of everything, still I plan.

"You can always change the plan, but only if you have one." - Randy Pausch

When you define your goals, and put your plan on paper, you start to visualize it. It’s an excellent exercise that gives you the chance to build your strategy and overcome the barriers.

At first, time is what people struggle with the most. But money is often the biggest issue.

Let’s face it: we need money for almost anything we want to do in life, don’t we?

Money doesn’t buy happiness or health, but it finances dreams and pays for the groceries. Money is not evil. The way you use it (or let yourself be used by it) is what makes the difference.

The price of goals

When setting our objectives we cannot lose sight of how we are going to afford them.

Let’s see some examples of goals you can set for yourself are:

  • exercising regularly
  • go on a spiritual retreat
  • hire a finance coach

Become a better version of yourself!

Whether you go to a gym, buy some equipment to exercise at home, hire a Personal Trainer or join a running team, you will be doing some investment. To say the least, you’ll need to buy comfortable shoes and a couple training outfits.

Retreats have enrollment fees and other added costs. There’ll also be some displacement. If you take the car or go by plane, you’ll still need to spend some bucks on transport.

Not everyone has a healthy relationship with money. It has a lot to with past experiences or preconceptions learned at an early age. Getting an extra help at least for the sake of accountability can get you on track once and for all.

These are all worthy objectives that will inevitably contribute to your self-improvement. But none of them come without a price. They all involve costs. It’s up to you to turn them into investments or waste.

Prioritizing your expenses

It’s no secret that money is not equally shared in the world. No matter in which country you live, you also see discrepancies every day.

Most of us cannot buy everything we want with our income. Some may use (or abuse) of credit cards to extend this reach. Others prefer to save first before buying. Whatever your vision is, if you don’t think things over carefully, you may get stuck.

It’s imperative to prioritize expenses. Throwing away money with projects doomed to failure should be avoided at all costs.

That’s why defining a goal and committing to it is so important. Unless you are serious about your choice, you’ll lose perspective of your priorities. You end up investing your money in something that doesn’t really mean much to you.

"Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes, but no plans." - Peter F. Drucker

Recently, I was interviewed by Charissa from Cook With a Shoe for her Money Wins series. We talked about how I was able to finance my childhood dream and study abroad.

You can watch the entire interview on her blog.

One thing I can already say in advance: it required strong commitment my dreams along with a holistic financial planning.

The Holistic approach

I’m focusing on showing you the way to becoming a Better You. I want you to take decisive steps towards living up to your potential. One of my goals is to help you Be Healthy and Life Fully.

For that, I use a Holistic Life Coaching approach. It guides you to achieve your goals successfully, without added stress.

Let’s say for example that you have your eyes set on a weight loss goal. You know exactly how much weight you want to lose and what you need to do to get there.

To make your #goals possible, you need to set a plan that includes your budget. #coaching Click To Tweet

As a Personal Trainer, I want you to get moving asap for you to get in shape and improve your wellness. I may direct you to some of my colleagues, or we can work out together.

When we sit together to build our strategy, though, I find out you need some clarity about your finance. It might be an existing or future expense that will impact your budget.

If you don’t deal with it first, you risk hiring a PT or enrolling in a gym you cannot afford once the “resolution’s deal” is done. Since not paying the bills or quit doing the groceries isn’t an option, you may have to stop with your activity. In this case, the money spent gets wasted, you see no results, and feel frustrated.

"Plan your work, and work your plan." - Napoleon Hill

While getting fit or having the honeymoon of your dreams are valid goals, if you lose of your finance, they may get you into trouble. We don’t want that!

Make sure you download my questionnaire. It’ll bring some clarity to these dreams of yours. 

Become a better version of yourself!

I want you to have dreams and to make them big. But at the same time, they have to be realistic. If you only focus on one aspect of your objectives, you’ll miss important details. To make them possible, you need to set a plan that includes your budget.

Get out of your comfort zone. Make it possible. Make it doable. And dare to become a Better You.
