Basketball Quotes to Inspire Your Money Management

“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up!” Jim Valvano’s powerful words continually remind us to strive for success and continue working towards our financial goals. Whether your next opponent is saving for retirement, creating an emergency fund, or learning how to develop a budget, our experienced line-up of financial providers are here to offer the best exercises and advice:


“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.” -John Wooden


The truth is mistakes happen, but what most people don’t know is that learning from those mistakes becomes the most valuable lessons of your life. Each time you feel that you’ve failed, take a moment to step back and look at the big picture. How does this affect you immediately, and how does it affect you long-term? While the short-term may sting for the time being, more often than not, the long-term benefits from the additional knowledge and preventative measures for the future.


“My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.” -Michael Jordan


If you want to grow in a specific area of your money management, the first step is identifying it. Allow your friends or family to be candid and help you spot potential areas for improvement. If you love finding a great steal and have a tendency to overspend, a great transition may be using those passions to bargain for better deals while working within a budget. In finance, any skill or money management tactic can be taught. All you need is a willingness to learn.


“Don’t let what other people think decide who you are.” -Dennis Rodman


We constantly hear comparisons and competition as one of the leading reasons Americans go into debt. While the Jones may have a new boat, a large home, or luxury vehicle, what they may also have is a mountain of debt. Instead of comparing your value to someone else’s, we challenge you to define WHAT you value and focus on those aspirations instead. If a long enjoyable retirement is something you look forward to, an IRA or HSA is a great place for you to begin saving. If traveling has always been your dream, accumulating funds in an interest-earning savings account can make all the difference for you and your family’s wanderlust.   


“We try to stress the little things because little things lead to big things.” -Steve Alford
