Bougie Girl University Presents: Life Is What You Make It- 5 Steps That You Can Take Right Now to Change Your Life...(Step Three-Make Better Choices )

Week 3-Make Better Choices
  • Making different choices requires that you hold yourself up to a higher standard of personal accountability…which can be exceedingly uncomfortable.
  • For example, let’s say you are looking for ways to trim your monthly budget. Looking through your bank statements, you notice multiple charges for dining out expenses. Upon further self-reflection, you realize that you rarely stock your food pantry.

  • List 3 things in your life that you would like to change.
  • For each item write down how you can choose differently to make your proposed change a reality.
