What Intermittent Fasting taught me about Building Wealth

Investing Cash Flow Planning Lifestyle

Last week we went on an RV Trip with our kids.

We traveled with another family (our long time friends).

During a fireside chat we talked about Intermittent Fasting.  

I shared how Intermittent Fasting has become a part of our daily routine …

And how good we felt as a result.

My friend admitted to trying IF but his body rejected the notion of not eating for 12-hours. 

He felt bad, experienced some side effects, and gave it up. 

That conversation made me think of the similarities between fasting, dieting and building wealth … and the reasons people struggle with all three! 

  • All three are hard
  • All three create discomfort
  • All three take time to produce results
  • And all three have to become routines, not sporadic efforts 


In my line of work, I see people setting goals and making plans every day… 

But not everyone follows through.

So here’s what I’ve learned from a persistent few who do ...

1: Set a Goal  

.... what do you want to achieve? 

2: Have a Why

... why is this important to you?  

3: Know the Cost

... what are you willing to do to get it?

4: Break it Down

... what are the daily steps you have to take? 

5: Start and Don’t Stop

... it doesn’t have to be easy! It has to be consistent! 

So whether it's building wealth, shedding a few pounds, improving your relationships, or learning a new skill …

I hope these five steps will help you reach whatever is most important and meaningful to you!
