To finally make your dream vacation a reality, set up a separate bank account just for that trip. You always end up short because you have spent the money allotted for the trip in unnecessary things. When you have a bank account dedicated for your dream vacation, it will inspire you to keep filling it up.
This also means you have to stop buying things you don’t need. Don’t eat out and cook your meals instead. This will drastically reduce your overall expenses. Ditch Starbucks and prepare healthier beverages at home instead. It is also great that you know what is placed in the food you eat if you also have fitness goals to achieve.
The key is discipline. Even if you are tempted to buy new clothes or eat in a fancy restaurant, you have to control your urges. Just imagine the grand vacation that you are doing in the future. Also, try to envision not seeing that plan come to life. You will be disappointed again and this becomes a toxic cycle.
Most of all think about the effort you have put into your work. You just can’t keep working forever without giving yourself a break. This is the break you need to happen. It has been suspended many times. Don’t let it stay that way.
