When I made up my mind to start snowboarding I went to the sports store and invested $500 in the equipment. As a starving college student that was hard to pull off but I did it because I knew I would stick with it if I did, Sure enough, in that first year when I was having a hard time learning and wanted to give up  I remembered the big investment into snowboarding I made and I was going to learn. Nine years later, I still get on the mountain at least once a year.

    Hey!! The link should be working now!! I’m SO sorry about that.


    This is SUCH a great tip. It’s so true. If you know you have a real, hard-earned investment in a workout or eating plan, you’re much more likely to stick to it. Your health is one of the best investments you can make. Hmm…I wonder if I would suffer through insanity if I got it for free or something…

    Great tip! I totally agree you’re more likely to follow through if you’ll feel like you’re wasting money if you don’t.
