Making ends meet is very personal to me and to some of my clients. In the process of working with my clients I get to meet different people some have money and some are downsizing. I think it takes a lot of courage for people to accept there circumstance and know when to make a change not for the change to conquer them but for them to conquer there circumstance and fear. Fear stops a lot of us from moving forward sometimes it even criples us and causes us not to make the decision we are suppose to make. Making ends meet is a temporary setback that doesn't have to be for the rest of your life, its taking your circumstance and doing the best that you can. If the best is downsizing for a while then that's called wisdom. Some of the greats went through some type of setback what made them different from the rest they knew it was only a temporary setback. It's not how you start it's how you finish that counts!
