"In the field of financial planning there is a universally accepted principle that it's critical to pay yourself first, before you pay your other bills -- to think of yourself as a creditor. The rationale for this financial wisdom is that if you wait to put money into savings until after everybody else is paid, there will be nothing left for you! the result is that you'll keep postponing your savings plan until it's too late to do anything about it. But lo and behold if you pay yourself first, somehow there will be just enough to pay everyone else, too".

"The identical principle is critical to implement into your program of spiritual practice. If you wait  until all your chores, responsibilities, and everything else is done before you get started, it will never happen. Guaranteed".
