How's the hangover.... Expensive!!! ⚠️
When it comes to 'letting your hair down' and going for a drink, I'll be the first one to put my hand up (it's in my Irish blood) 🙋🏼♂️ BUT I only try and go 'Out-Out' when I've earned it - both in money AND goal terms.
Getting VIP tables, Magnum bottles and even just paying club-entry can cost a bomb these days! 💣 and if not watched carefully, this can be a massive speed-bump in your property investing journey. Ive known friends get carried away and drop £1-3k on a night out while saving for a house and massively regret it on the Monday morning when their balance updates. 🥂😱💸
Having moments like that can seriously slowdown and de-rail your property goals, especially if it's a regular occurrence. Hopefully these tips will help you curb that champagne life-style and focus on the Bricks & Mortar one instead:
1) Set mini weekly goals (which are inline with your monthly/yearly goals
2) Only reward yourself once you've hit them...NOT before.🎯
2) Self discipline is Key! 🔑 It doesn't matter how many phone calls from your best mate or the 'group-chat' abuse you receive. If you didn't hit your goals, you don't splash the cash. Simple.
3) Be honest and tell your friends why your doing it - We all have friends that try to break us when it comes to temptations but we have to say "No" and explain why. Think of the bigger picture. What do you want more? Trust me, it's hard but so much more satisfying when you've hit your goals and then hitting the clubs in celebration with no guilt. 🙌🏻🥂😊
