Giving Thanks for what you’ve got

As we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends this week, it is important to take some time and reflect on what you are thankful for. Family, friends, faith, and career are some things we typically think of first. When it comes to finances however, it is easier a lot of times to think of what you do not have instead of what you do have.

Remember, we live in the wealthiest country ever. The ability to go out and make a living however you please is not something that should be taken for granted. Be thankful for that home, the used beat-up car, and the ability to improve your way of life. People around the world would kill for those things that we take for granted. As a financial coach sometimes I can discuss all the things you don’t have: the emergency fund, the retirement plan, and the debt-free lifestyle. I want you to get there eventually, but first remember the blessing of what you do have now.

According to reports 80% of America’s millionaires are first generation. That shows that you are not stuck in your current financial situation forever; you can improve it! We all have the opportunity to change our lot in life financially. We can make the choice to dump our debt, pursue the career that we dream of, and live however we want to. But it must start first with making that decision to want to change. So if you are frustrated with your current financial condition, remember to be thankful for what you have and also be thankful for the ability to change your current path.

So what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend?
