Balance is important in healthy finances. Getting started involves creating long and short term goals. Searching your inner self to determine what your passions, gifts and talents are. Setting up a strategy to achieve your goals, in a balanced manner. Educating yourself whenever you are able, in areas that will motivate you and that will enhance your momentum toward your goals for your life. When you have a steady income, save between 10% to 20% of your earnings. If you have no steady income, keep working to save. Pay yourself first. During a struggle period, if you find yourself repeatedly spending your savings on an emergency, don't let it deter you or get you down. Pick up where you left off and keep saving until you are able to get yourself above water. During a time of struggle, buck up, focus in, stay the course and surround yourself with positive people whom you trust. Keep learning and stay balanced. One step at a time, if you stay the course and stay balanced, you will get to your goal. Healthy finances, healthy eating, healthy fitness, healthy thinking and healthy families (families may mean a family of friends- a support system), all play a supportive part in your progress and success. Balance in each of these areas is important. This is a starting point of reference.
