Christmas Traditions Don’t Have To Be Filled With Stuff

by Tread Lightly, Retire Early

“Christmas to us isn’t about a huge stack of presents under the tree and the holiday isn’t any less magical for the absence of a massive toy haul. Just because it’s normal doesn’t mean we have to make traditions to fit that expectation; rather, we are focused on creating traditions that matter to our family.”

So much great content in this post. This will have you really thinking deeply about what you spend money on and does it really align with your values. I like to challenge myself to make sure how I spend my money and time is aligned with my values and will bring me long-term happiness. Very seldom have I bought stuff that had that effect for me.

How to Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy, with Clark Howard

by Afford Anything

“Clark believes that money is the result of the discipline you bring into your life. Unfortunately, most people want to take the path of least resistance when it comes to achieving their goals. That’s why so many people fail. Clark says that the most common mistake he sees his listeners make is getting in their own way. People give up before they’ve started and play the victim. That’s not the path to success – financial or otherwise.”

This episode is what I like to call dropping the mic! Thie biggest killer of wealth and success is the man in the mirror so to speak. Don’t play the victim in your life. Instead, learn from your mistakes and make small improvements.


Hopefully, you enjoyed this weeks roundup.
