I’m on the road for business when I get a call from home.
Car broke down.
The suspension deflated and it looks like a low-rider.
The pump was shot and the air bags wouldn’t inflate.
It looked funny, but the situation wasn’t.
There I was, hundreds of miles from home, and my family had no way to get around.
There was only one thing to do.
My partner would have to take the car to a shop in town and have it fixed.
I panicked a little, because I had no idea how much that would cost.
It could easily eat into our food budget.
We didn’t have much cash stashed for emergencies at the time.
But there was no other way.
I wasn’t wrong.
It did it cut into our food budget, as well as our electric and phone budget.
We couldn’t afford not to fix it, since life without a car isn’t practical.
So I took on additional work for the next few months to slowly pay it off.
When things like that happen now, I don’t even panic.
Not even a little.
Now I know I have the money to cover those unexpected situations when they happen.
You may not be able to control what situations arise, but you can make sure you’re ready when they come.
What are you waiting for?
