Got a Tax Refund? Discipline Your Spending with Priorities Over Pleasure
After 30 years of helping taxpayers take care of their taxes, we know all too well how tempting it can be to celebrate your tax refund with a nice shopping spree. However, chances are if you’re in need of tax relief services, there is probably an underlying problem that is causing the delinquency of such payments. If this is the case, we can help you with that.
As the CEO of Success Tax Relief, I’ve learned that successful people have excellent time management skills. And great time management skills can be applied to one’s finances. Oftentimes, it’s not about the lack of income you’re generating, it’s about how you manage it. There are plenty of millionaires who have gone bankrupt because they couldn’t manage their money properly.
- Q. So what can you do about getting the most out of this year’s tax refund?
- A. By applying P.O.P. to your life!
What is P.O.P.?
P.O.P. = Priorities Over Pleasure and it’s a great way to not only manage your finances, but also your life as stated in the book I co-authored with entrepreneur and professional speaker Brian Tracy Ignite Your Life. By applying P.O.P. toward your tax refund, you’ll soon discover that your money will be spent more efficiently, and you might even have some to save!
P.O.P. is all about getting what you need instead of what you want. You’ll be surprised to discover that your need might be shorter than your list of wants, but the actual need will be far more fulfilling once it’s met. Feeding your wants may be temporarily appeased, but eventually they’ll be something else that you want—whether it’s a new car, clothes, make-over, home, or vacation, etc. But here’s the great thing about P.O.P.—if you take care of your priorities, you’ll eventually be able to treat yourself with the so desired pleasures you crave!
Sacrificing What You Want Now
For instance, if you take care of your credit card debt, then you’ll have the finances to pay other debts. Eventually, you won’t have any debt at all which will free up your finances to go on the vacation, treat yourself to a shopping spree, or whatever!
Not everyone may have the same monthly income, but what is constant is the number of hours you have in a week—168. It’s up to you to determine what you’re going to do with it, and being consistent and disciplined toward your finances and your life is going to have a significant outcome on your P.O.P.!
