7 Financial Lessons from Winnie the Pooh
January 18th is National Winnie The Pooh Day, and indeed, it is a real thing. It is the day Winnie was born. And to celebrate all of the years that this bear has inspired joy, friendship, and love, Allgen Financial would like to dedicate seven financial lessons that we learned from this pretty little awesome bear. Here is where Winnie The Pooh hit closest to home at Allgen Financial HQ:
“Life is a journey to be experienced, not a problem to be solved.” – A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
Unexpected situations will happen regardless, and that’s why we encourage you to plan ahead. In the moments where living paycheck-to-paycheck becomes a never ending battle, you can focus on what you have planned. Remember to visualize the light at the end of the tunnel, and enjoy the ride.
“Things are so much more grand and wonderful when your friends are there to share them.” – A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
When starting your journey towards financial freedom, having a support group is essential. Surround yourself with people who are on the same path as you. You will start to notice you are becoming stronger together. It makes reaching and celebrating each goal all the more special.
“When you see someone putting on his big boots, you can be pretty sure that an adventure is going to happen” – A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
The journey to financial freedom is a lifestyle change that must be fully embraced by you and the generations that follow. If you’re in, you better be “ALL-IN”. These days we see too many time people talk-the-talk but they don’t walk-the-walk. We already know what the adventure seekers look like. Make the decision to change and see how nothing but great things will come from it. It’ll be an adventure with the finish line being ultimate freedom, security, and peace of mind. If you are serious enough to make financial changes, we are serious enough to help you every step of the way. Make every dream you are so eager to reach, a reality.

“Promise me you’ll always remember that you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” -A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
When the going gets tough and you begin to forget the purpose of all these financial changes, keep the goal in mind. You are brave. You are fighting for something worth fighting for. This is for you and the many generations to come after.
“I was just getting seasick from seeing too much.” – A.A. Milne, Tigger
Keeping up with life, kids, a job, and your finances is overwhelming. The bills keep coming, you can’t seem to get ahead of the game. You’re sick-and-tired of going through your budget and the numbers don’t add up. You turn on the TV and you hear negative commentary about the economy and how the world is coming to an end. You feel like everything is falling apart. But it isn’t. If you’ve made the decision to better your finances and you’ve set the proper foundation in place your life it just starting! Remember that the systems you put in place today will allow you to feel secure in the midst of chaos.
“Always watch where you are going. Otherwise, you may step on a piece of the forest that was left out by mistake.” -A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
It never hurts to be extra careful, checking things twice, and even finding the good in every situation. When it comes to your finances, do your research on finding the best offer, double check your bank statements, and don’t dread paying your mortgage, it is for a greater tomorrow.
“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.” -A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
