The Time has Come to Be Tough as Nails

A few weeks ago, Devon and I were having dinner with some family when an old memory popped into my head.

It was from when I was teaching and one of my students got a bloody nose.  I had a good relationship with the boy, so rather than sending him to the nurse, I took an old ‘pennie’ and told him to hold that on his nose until the bleeding stopped.

He did and we threw it away.  I didn’t give it another thought.

Well, the next day, I got grilled by the school nurse and our principal.  The boy went home and told his mom how tough he was and she got pissed.

I couldn’t have been more proud.  Some of the stuff I used to do when I was a teacher even blows my mind now.  But the principles are the same as I have now.

I will instill toughness in my boys and anyone else that wants to listen.

When times get tough, in any form, you have to get tougher.

Tough as nails you can be, remember that.

Don’t Rip Up Your Money Like I Did

Don’t Rip Up Your Money Like I Did

On Monday morning, Munchie and I went out to run a few errands.

The first stop on the way to Devon’s school Halloween parade was to the bank.  Munchie was taking a quick catnap in the back of the truck, so I made it snappy.

I made a deposit and took out a little cash.  I stuffed the cash in my pocket and forgot about it.

We made it to Devon’s school on time and wound up staying for the classroom party.  Munchie is always a big hit with her third grade students.

The Munch man and I were out for a little bit longer than I expected, which meant that he and Dax and Mateena were all going to be hungry for lunch .

Well, I whipped up some food for him and gave the pups their food.  All was good.  10 minutes later, as they were all finishing up, I took Braxton out of his high chair and put him down so he could run around.

Meanwhile, I was making a quick call.  I don’t know if it was Munchie or Dax (Dax loves to put his nose in my pocket to see if I have any treats in there), but one of them took a few twenties out of my pocket.

I didn’t realize that though until I heard a ripping and tearing noise a minute or two later.  Even at that point, I still didn’t give it much thought.  I was thinking Dax had gotten a paper towel or something.

And then, I walked around the corner and saw it.  Two twenty dollar bills completely shredded!

I had to laugh at the situation.  The little rascals had fooled me.

While that’s an example of literally throwing money away, there are so many areas of your life in which you are probably of the opportunity or cost mindset which is just another way to throw away your money.

If everything is an expense, then you will opt for the cheaper and inferior option.  The option that promises the quick fix.

Where can you start using an investment mindset in your life rather than the ‘get rich quick’ mindset?

If you’ve been spinning your wheels for years with your health and fitness regiment, now is the time to start using an investment mindset towards it.  You can apply for one of our limited 3-WTD spots here.
