You may be saying, why recipes? Shouldn’t I be putting down my goals and objectives and checking them off a list? Well, in a way you will but the approach will be with using recipes and directions that are clear and straightforward. Why is this so, it’s because there is a very clear structure to a recipe. Recipes have ingredients and directions. Think of it this way, you need to bake a cake. You are having company over for dinner and would like to serve cake. What kind of cake do you want to make? Is it a chocolate cake, vanilla cake, or carrot cake? Before you can make the cake, you first need to know the type of cake. Correct? Chocolate is your favorite and you know your company always enjoys your chocolate cakes! So it’s easy, you will make a chocolate cake but wait is it a chocolate cake with butter or cream cheese? Here’s another factor to consider: How large a cake do you need to make the cake? Will it need to serve 4 people or 24? Now, you see it’s not easy to bake this cake. Is it? Same with money! You need to decide what you want and need before you are going to be able to have what you want. Let’s continue with baking this chocolate cake. It’s going to be chocolate with butter for 10 people. Whew, that’s easy! Now all you need to do is get the recipe and figure out what ingredients you have in your kitchen plus what you will need to buy for a chocolate cake for 10 people. In your kitchen you know you have flour, sugar, butter, water, eggs…missing vanilla, soda, salt, buttermilk, and chocolate. So far, so good, but do you know if what you have in your kitchen is the right quantity to bake the cake. You have to first check before you go out shopping otherwise you may not have enough in your cupboard to make the cake. It’s the same with having enough money in your life. You have to know what you have, what you need and want before you can cook up a rich fulfilling life. There are many parts to it too. Same with this cake and by the way, if it’s a dinner for 10 what else are you going to need? See, again it’s not as easy as it first seemed. It’s the same with having money in your life. What happens if you bake the cake and forgot to add the sugar? Is it going to taste good? I don’t think so…and what about money?
I think you are getting the analogy with making this chocolate cake, if you don’t have the right ingredients and follow the directions; you are not going to have a very tasty cake. Again, it’s the same with your money. If you don’t have clearly defined recipes (goals) to follow, you will not be able to have that rich fulfilling life that you want. So get started…look through the website and “COOK UP THE RICH AND FULFILLING LIFE” you want!
