One of my problems in life is that it is hard for me to maintain any type of money motivation. I just have never cared much for money itself.
What I do care about though is having decent shoes, a haircut, a nicer vehicle and most recently, helping my children.
One of my children has taken on a LOT of debt to go to university. She will have a decent career when she gets out and will be able to pay it back BUT she will have to wait to have children she says.
I think I might keep sleeping in my van at night and save the $1,000 a month to help my daughter. Two years of this would give her $24,000 right? A hefty sum.
THIS motivates me because I want to have grandchildren and I don’t want my daughter to miss out on having them because she keeps putting it off and her eggs dry up. That would be tragic.
It’s good to finally make a connection between earning better money and worthy goals. Money gives you more options.
