Daily Word: Pay Yourself First!

Happy Monday, my dreamers and doers!

Welcome to the start of the best week of your life! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to paying yourself first! As a financial literacy expert, I always encourage this as a key principle in getting your finances in order, but today, I am not just talking about paying yourself first monetarily! Today as I discuss this principle, I am discussing what you owe to yourself, your duties, your obligations!

Often times, we tend to put other people's needs in front of ours, not realizing that we're doing both parties an injustice! If you are not consistently improving yourself, you are limiting what you can give back to the world! You weren't put on this earth to be mediocre! You were put here to maximize your full potential, and the only way you can do that effectively is to constantly work on you! You have a duty to give back to the world, but how can you if you aren't at your best???

Stop being selfish and be selfish!! Work on making you the best you that can possibly be and in that you will be doing yourself and the world justice!! Pay yourself first! It's not only the best way to go but your mandatory duty!! -Ash'Cash
