Word of the Day: Impossible.

Amara’s message is on making the impossible possible in your life and I’d like to talk about that word “impossible”. It means incapable of being or incurring. This is a word that holds us back from achieving greater things. It’s a word that limits our mindset. People believe things like “it’s impossible to save for retirement while paying on student loans” or “it’s impossible to go to college without taking student loans” or “it’s impossible to get out of the financial hole that I’m in”. Let me tell you, these things are not impossible. Sometimes, we just need to change up our vocabulary which affects our mindset.

If you feel like you are in an “impossible” place with getting to your financial goals start by talking to (friend, planner, therapist) to see what you can do to make the “impossible” possible.
