When I first had the idea to write this after emailing with a coaching client, it was going to be about a 1,000 word post to help people get control of their spending.

What resulted was a 5,000 word monster resource about how to control impulse buying.

If you're looking to get control of your spending to improve your personal finances this year, this post is for you!

Retailers are tricky, and will go to great lengths to prey on your impulse buying behavior. Here's how they do it, and how to avoid impulse buying with a few simple tips.

Let me ask you a question.

Have you ever sat back and thought about how your mindset about money might be affecting the financial position that you’re in, or even the life position that you’re in?

Most mass media blogs only seem to talk about “saving money” “cutting back” “reducing costs” etc.

Why? Because it’s easy to optimize what you already have, and it’s incredibly easy for them to write about this.

Optimization is an important part of your personal finances, but cutting spending is not all there is to personal finance success.

Today, I have a challenge for you. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do, that you’ve never done?

This can be anything.

Travel somewhere?
Jump out of a plane?
Learn a skill?
Start a website?
Picture yourself doing it. What does it feel like? Are you smiling? Are you happy? Are you absolutely thrilled?

Whatever it is, there is no reason you can’t do it. You have this desire for a reason, so why not make it happen?

"It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things."

This is a quote from Leonardo da Vinci, one of the most prolific achievers in history. What does it mean? In a nutshell, it means to get out and go do things. It might sound like a simplification, but showing up every day goes a really long way.

Check out a couple of other life lessons da Vinci may have taught you as well.
Leonardo da Vinci is widely considered to be one of the most diversely talented individuals that has ever lived. He held over 10 professions to his name at any given time, and is credited with creations and discoveries that still influence the world to this day, nearly 500 years later. While I would love to nerd out on how ridiculously ahead of his time da Vinci was in his fields, this training is not about science or art. It's about examining wh...

There’s a ton of talk out there about the many reasons for a “financial emergency fund” for times of financial need, but when the deep down “how to” of executing this critical area of your financial life comes into play, the Internet fails.

I won’t bore you and preach to you about why you need to save money for unexpected happenings. You can check any number of mainstream media blogs for that debate.

What I want to help you with is not just how to create a financial emergency fund, but how to create a actually USEFUL financial emergency fund.

There’s a lot of psychology involved in saving money. It can be a pretty emotionally painful thing to do simply because we like to spend the money we make.

What to do with your tax return?

It sounds a little counter intuitive, but it’s actually very easy to take a big chunk of money and make your financial position far worse than it is right now. I’m here with this training to help you make that position better, wherever you are on the financial spectrum.

But before you do anything, I want you to think carefully about how what you do now is going to affect your life in the future, and how it aligns with the goals you’ve set for yourself both developmentally and financially.
When deciding what to do with your tax refund, it can be easy to go out and blow it all. With just a little bit of strategy, you can use this influx of cash to drastically increase your financial position.

How can you hack your internal dialogue to become more successful on autopilot?

I’ve been around quite a few people in my short life, some successful, and some not so successful (unfortunately none have been Patrick Stewart).

The one absolute constant in all of those who are happy, successful, and enjoying life is the language they choose to identify the tasks in their day.

And this isn’t limited to spoken language. It has a lot to do with your internal dialogue as well – which is incredibly power in and of itself.

Internal dialogue and the way we approach the language we use has an incredible effect on how we feel about the tasks in our daily lives.
Your internal dialogue can completely change the way you see the world. Everything you do is a choice. See the positives to instantly be more successful.

If I told you that you could spend a few hundred bucks now, and save $500 a year on your utility bills for the rest of your life, would you do it? I hope so. That’s exactly what this post will help you do.

As I write this, it’s Thanksgiving week in the U.S.

This is a day when Americans are supposed to pause, reflect, and express gratitude for the positive things in our lives.

Brief history lesson – This holiday evolved from the “thanks giving” prayers of the explorers who originally discovered and colonized early America.

The difference between then and now is that our ancestors gave thanks for literally DAYS during this period (yes, I did pay attention during a small minority of history lectures).

But today, we usually give it about 30 seconds before we all ravage a bunch of turkey, stuffing, potatoes and other indulgences that leave us with what is scientifically know as a “food coma.”

Anyway, I could vent for days about the shortcomings of how we handle holidays and how it crushes our productivity and personal finances, but that’s a different discussion entirely, and we’ve skinned that cat before.

What I really want help you out with today is how continuous daily gratitude can positively impact your life.
Gratitude. It's much more than something to express once a year over a turkey dinner. Check out the science behind how daily gratitude can dramatically change your thinking.

http://academysuccess.com/try-goal-setting-hack-bring-closer-goals/

Today I want to share with you one really simple, but also super effective goal setting hack to help you achieve your goals.

This isn’t something you’re going to read about in a lot of places, because frankly, it goes a little deeper than most of the goal setting knowledge you’re going to read out there.

Achievements are hard, especially those that may be long-term and drawn out like most of our yearly goals are. There’s a pretty common saying that one of my mentors, Brendon Burchard, says quite often. He says “when opportunity knocks, it’s work that answers.”

This is where it’s easy to get stuck with goals, doing the actual work. Because beyond the glory and excitement that is goal setting, it’s usually a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that goes into accomplishing them, so I want to try to give you every possible advantage that you can get to help you out.

You often feel really excited when you set goals initially, and you might even make some good progress in the beginning, but eventually when life gets in the way, it’s easy to fizzle out and return back to your old habits.

The technique I want to share with you today will help you with this as you begin to think about what you want to accomplish in the near future. It will help you bring substance, meaning, and real tangibility to your goals. They won’t just be some outlandish hopes of accomplishment you wrote on a piece of paper, or typed into your computer.

They’ll actually mean something to your life, and you’ll begin to see how they will make you a better version of yourself.
It's easy to set goals. What's not so easy is doing the work to achieve them. Use this goal setting hack to supercharge your motivation.

Four Barrel, is by far, the best gym experience I have ever had. It's incredibly well-run and the programming is very well thought out. Every time I work out, whether it's CrossFit or just lifting, I come away feeling awesome. The coaches are top-notch, and many are world-class athletes that compete in CrossFit competitions regularly. I've never had a question go unanswered. On top of that, the way that Four Barrel goes out of the way to create an amazing community for its members is incredible and a huge benefit.

I've come to love this place in just a couple of times in taking my car there. Each time I've taken my car in, they have been in touch with me every step of the way, and even made it easy on me to schedule around traveling. The one thing I really love is their willingness to communicate by email. I'm often unable to answer the phone, so email works out very conveniently for this. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a reputable shop that knows their stuff, and won't try to sell you on things you don't need.
