What do you do when things don’t go according to plan?
Welcome to the Your Money Your Life podcast. I’m your host, Aimee Cerka. After over 10 years in the personal finance industry and multiple personal financial and medical crisis, I was fed up with the lies that are being shouted from the rooftops by the Guru’s and the media. If you’re ready to eliminate fear, stress, struggle, frustration and guilt, from your finances. All the areas they affect. You’re in the right place. Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here!
Having a Plan and Expecting the Unexpected
Welcome back to another episode of the Your Money, Your Life podcast. This one’s a little different. If you’re watching on YouTube, you’ll see like, the selfie style in the car, right spur of the moment, for who listening to the actual podcast, audio might be different because like truly spur of the moment type thing, and it’s going to be short and sweet.
But what do you do when things don’t go according to plan? Right, like I’m Cashflow Unlocked last week, the free workshop that I hosted, one of the things that I talked about, was making the plan. And I use a quote from like, one of my son, well, if it’s one of my favorite TV shows, but Leonard Snart from DC legends of tomorrow, he’s got the clip, it was actually a real probably like a year or two ago, somewhere in there, how long rails went out?
No, but he goes make a plan, execute the plan, expect the plan to go off the rails, throw away the point. Okay, so it’s 1234 Make the plan, expect the execute the plan, expect the plan to go off the rails throw away the plan.
The Importance of Making a Plan
And the part that I love about that is because it’s so true, we have to make the plan, we have to know where we want to go. Because if we don’t have that destination, we’re not going to get anywhere. And we have to actually do the work. Like we can’t just sit there in planning mode, we have to actually do the work.
But then it’s like what happens when things don’t go according to plan, right? Like, what do we do then.
Having a Backup Plan
And that’s why it’s important that we like have a backup plan. And like we keep doing the actions that we need to we’re not tied to necessarily the results that we’re expecting to have. We’re not tied to that whole, six figures, or 10k months or being debt-free.
Like just keep doing the work consistently day in and day out, week in, week out, month in and month out. And of course we’re gonna have off days, and that’s fine. But it’s what you do consistently, that really makes a difference.
And that is like the expects the plan to go off the rails and throw away the plan with the plan doesn’t matter, that destination doesn’t really matter. And yes, we need to have that. But we need to keep doing the things that we know we need to do. And that’s the key.
Reflecting on Your Actions
So today, like I said, and short and sweet. I want to know what is it that you need to keep doing that you haven’t been doing? Okay?
And I’d love for you to tell me on Instagram @aimeecerka or just tell yourself like what is the thing that you know you need to do that you haven’t been doing it? You can take it next next step further and ask like okay, why am I not doing the things that I need to do?
The Power of Coaching and Support
But that can be a little harder to unpack by yourself. And that’s really what the Money Mastery Academy is about. Like, yes, I give you the step-by-step guides. Everything you need to actually like create the unstoppable finances but the power comes in with the coaching when you have somebody there by your side as a sounding board. Somebody to review the tape somebody to be in your corner to support you and to encourage you to do all the things be that voice of reason when you have a bad day; help remind you like things aren’t that bad, right?
