“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.” – Amelia Earhart

Many of our clients start working with us when they find themselves at a crossroads. Regardless of how much money they have, they come to a point where the feel like they should be saving more, investing better, or improving how they work with their money.

For all of us, taking that first step can feel like standing at the edge of a cliff, paralyzed by the vastness of the task ahead. Amelia Earhart’s words ring true not just for aviation pioneers, but for anyone embarking on a journey of transformation.

The decision to act – to take control of your future – is indeed the most challenging part. It’s easy to procrastinate, to tell ourselves we’ll start tomorrow, next month, or when we get that raise. But as Earhart suggests, once we make that crucial decision, the rest is simply a matter of persistence.

Think about it. How many times have you told yourself you’d start budgeting, only to put it off another day? How often have you thought about setting up that investment account, but never quite got around to it? The mental hurdle of beginning is often far more daunting than the actual task itself.

But here’s the thing: financial planning isn’t about making one big, life-altering decision. It’s about making a series of small, consistent choices that add up over time. It’s deciding to pack lunch instead of buying it. It’s choosing to put a little extra into your savings each month. It’s taking the time to educate yourself about different investment options.

Once you’ve made the decision to act, to take control of your financial life, you’ll find that momentum builds. One small action leads to another, and before you know it, you’re not just managing your money – you’re shaping your entire lifestyle around your financial goals and personal values. (we’ll explore this theme again in future blogs!)
