Yeah that's 44, Former President Barack Obama, "my president is black, my lambo is blue," (Young Jeezy, 2008) letting that bag (bag of $$$) go!!!!!
Now for something more appropriate.
Now, let's be honest. My guy has a hat on backwards, thong flip flops walking with his wonderful wife in shorts like they don't have a care in the world AND THEY DON'T.
He has worked tirelessly for the past 8 years handling the worries of the people and now it is time to relax. Every good leader should set a great example and yet again provides another example of how to play the game and WIN.
I'm not always one for following but just stay with me here...
And before you say well he's the president, he's been making money for years, he has the connects, they just got a $10 million dollar book deal...pull that hate or sadness back a couple of steps.
Remember, you make money too, you work from Monday - Friday or 24/7 for you entrepreneurs, you take care of your family, you have just as big of a plate as anybody else.
So let's remember to live like the Obama's.
HAVE FUN WITH YOUR MONEY!
You do not want to live a long life and then say "I never did anything." Remember you cannot take money to the grave.
So now that we know to have fun, let's figure out how we do that.
Now this does apply to everybody even if every cent you make is accounted for. This is because when you make a plan for something then that plan is generally written down. In order to write something down you must know how to spell. Now what is a spell? A spell is a form of words used as a magical charm or incantation. Now if writing is spelling then to spell is to create magic...in real life. Now I did not come up with this all on my lonesome, I read it in a book some time ago and it blew my mind. If that did blow your mind that's cool I have something for you.
Have you ever thought about somebody or talked about somebody and then before you are aware of it they either call you or you run into them somewhere and a light goes off in your head like "ayeeeeee I just talked about you the other day!"
That's magic in real life too!!
If you want something, want it hard and believe that it is going to happen. That does not go without saying that it is of the upmost importance that you take the time out to WRITE a plan to get your finances in order so that you can go and live like the Obamas for a weekend, or a week, or a month, or for the rest of your life. Remember, from the paper to reality it can happen. Do not be afraid to ask for those vacation days. Your boss has them too and I am sure that they use them.
Bottom line is use your money to actually live! Do something that will put a smile on your face. I mean c'mon just look at how happy this man looks. You aren't going to get that kind of happiness without lifting your head out of the abyss and HAVE SOME FUN WITH YOUR MONEY!
As always thank God for seeing another Friday.
Please share with family, friends, and a stranger.
P.S. contact the person you know if best at managing their money and figure out how to live life in reality. As you can tell I also miss my president. Farewell 44.
