We All Need A Little Recognition!
Every day we all work hard to achieve the best we can in life. You may work hard in your job or be striving to build a successful business, you might be trying to provide a stable and secure upbringing for your children or you could even be trying to excel in a certain hobby or sport. Whatever you’re looking to achieve in life you will almost always reach a point in your journey when you ask yourself ‘Why do I bother?’
It’s not that you don’t care anymore and it’s not that you’re thinking of quitting, it’s just that from time to time the stress and pressure of life can get the better of you. If you’ve ever hit that low point it’s probably because you’re feeling a lack of recognition for the effort you’re putting in. Whether you’re a worker, an entrepreneur, a mother, a father, an artist or even a child looking to make your parents proud, we all need some sort of recognition for the effort we put into our endeavors.
This recognition can come in many forms. It may be a pat on the back from your boss, positive feedback from a satisfied client, a bunch of flowers from your partner, a homemade card from your kids or a simple declaration of love.
Recognition For Money Bulldog
Last night I received an email from my friend Sean over @ One Smart Dollar to let me know that Money Bulldog has been nominated for the accolade of Top Personal Finance Blog of 2012 which you can vote on here. I’ve been blogging away on Money Bulldog for almost a year now and I have to admit there have been times when I’ve asked myself is it worth it?
I’ve always loved finance and I have also worked in the field. I’ve seen how often people get ripped off by the very people who are supposed to be helping them. Although being nominated for a blog award is a relatively small achievement in the grand scheme of things, these little nods of recognition can be just what you need to keep you going when things are getting on top of you.
I think most personal finance bloggers would agree that if they can help just a few people to improve their lot in life then all the effort they put into their blogs would be worth it. With that in mind I hope you find some gems of information in the following blog posts from some friends of mine.
