Life is funny in that the best things for us are generally the things that we want to do least. And we start learning this when we’re young, “eat your vegetables first” was the dinner time mantra in my home, along with a hundred other lessons and chores that I thought were a total bore. The fact is that without the foresight and imposed discipline of my parents, I would be an absolute wreck by now.
It’s also true that when you commit to these laborious tasks, you generally feel fantastic about yourself when you look back and realise that you have achieved goals as a result of your discipline. But discipline is something we ALL struggle with.
And it’s the same with saving our money.
Well, it is for me.
These days it seems like there’s some new want and desire lurking around every corner. And they’re all so alluring! For me, my weakness is tech and gadgets. For you it may be the same (everyone needs the latest phones today right?) or it may be some other guilty pleasure that tempts you to hand over your money.
But if we use up all our extra cash on living for the moment, then how will we save up for the things we really want? Right? If you’re like me, you know this but tend to push these thoughts aside and perhaps even put your dreams on hold until “i’m earning enough” or whatever other story we tell ourselves.
But once you start saving and you start seeing the rewards of your discipline in a tangible way then you start to feel great about what you can achieve and thankfully Absa has come up with a solution that makes it that much easier for us to get to that place quicker.
