The Big 24
I would like to thank all the friends and family who reminded me of getting old… I mean, for wishing me happy birthday today. I got a very unexpected call from an old friend too, it’s great!
I was asked somewhere along if it feels any different to be a year older… not really :P It is not like I can, or anyone for this matter. How can anyone possibly change and metamorphose himself within a day?? There’s even a saying that goes like this, “it is easier to move a mountain than changing yourself (personality)”.
Relating this to personal development and personal finance, that is exactly why we should not wait for these “special days” to set our goals, like birthday, new year day (aka. new year resolution), or even more generic like “summer”. We have to start as soon as we can and make it a continuous process just because sheer difficulties involved, that we have to learn new habits.
For me, I am aware and have been rolling in actions and the only difference of turning 24 is none but persist and continue to learn. We have to remember that we may not have tomorrow. If we want to start something, it needs to be start now. One we got started we cannot cease to push ourselves. Do not give up for even if we may not reach our goal, we are moving forward, which is why we must aim high. As I like to quote, “tomorrow’s myself” needs to be better than “today’s myself”.
