10 Posts to Motivate You Towards Your Financial Goals

10 Posts to Motivate You Towards Your Financial Goals

In the personal finance world, there are a ton of tips that “thought leaders” (not used to that yet) like me share regularly to help people understand and manage their money more effectively. As much as I love writing about different personal finance apps or discussing what people should do with their extra cash, the reality is that most people just need the motivation to get started.

That’s why my favorite (and probably best performing) posts are centered around motivating and inspiring people to kill it with their money. Over the past two years, I’ve written a lot of them!

If you’re feeling stuck, you’ll love these. I touch on everything from dealing with the loss of a loved one to finding a path towards entrepreneurship.

Here are my 10 favorite motivational posts that I’ve written for M$M:

1. The Real Reason I Live Debt Free


2. The Stonecutter’s Credo


3. Let Your Friends Pass You Up

4. Would You Take a $7,600 Pay Cut for Work-Life Balance?


5. The Best Advice I Have to Give for Millennials

6. Want to Build Wealth Someday?


7. The Quote That Will Change Your Life Forever


8. The Reason I Quit My Job for Blogging


9. Does a Higher Salary Lead to Happiness?

10. The Reason that “Easy” and “Instant” are Total Bull****


I hope all of you have an incredible Thanksgiving holiday! Take some time and appreciate the people around you – as we all know, life is too short not to.

    My favorite post was the Stonecutter’s Credo. That one resonated with me because I’m just spinning my wheels trying to accomplish my dreams instead of picking up that dang pick and laying waste to that boulder.

    My favorite is #3. I learned that the hard way after feeling envy toward my more successful peers. What I also take from this additionally is that it is okay if some people are completely more successful than you, both career-wise and financially (example: those who make more, spend more, and still have more net worth than you).
