Thinking. The brain is an organ that uses electro chemical energy to send signals to the rest of the body. Each brain cell has the potential of sending a electric pulse that carries throughout the brain. When the energy inside of the brain cell reaches a certain level or threshold it releases the energy to the next brain cell. This threshold can be the action potential.
One can also have an action potential for their budget and finance. Choose a dollar amount like $1000. Then, save up until one reaches that dollar amount. Once that threshold is reached, one can take action with the $1000 saved up. One can spend some of it like $100. The goal is to save that amount. This can be repeated as many times as one so chooses. Put money back into the account until it reaches the threshold or amount again.
Having many different accounts may also be an interesting venture as well. Tithing, saving, investing, and spending. In each account, a threshold can be set for many different things like a car, home, investments, and tithing.
An area that can be of interest is investing. Something to invest in is the stock market and may be a great way of building a financial structure. An individual can buy stocks at a certain threshold. This can also be done with saving too. Once a certain amount is reached, like $1000, it can be saved in the bank. Then, when one reaches that number or threshold again, it can be saved in the bank once again.
Thresholds can be set at varying amounts. Make it significant. Here are some examples: an amount equal to 100 stocks at the time and price of the stock. So if a stock price reaches the same dollar amount of one saving for that amount, one can automatically buy it. Speak with a financial planner to set this up. Another amount is the odometer on the car, use that as the amount to save up for a new car (which might buy a very nice car). A third example is the points for a sports game. In tithing or giving, use the numbers found where one wants to give.
Example: set a threshold or dollar amount of $1000 to spend on new stocks in the stock market. Once one reaches that amount, buy the stock. Then, save $1000 again then buy more stocks.
Once there was a young man who wanted to buy stocks in a big company’s he set the threshold amount at $1000. He saved everyday and one day he reached $1000. He was excited and he bought $1000 worth of stocks. The next day, he began to save again until one day he reached the threshold again. He bought more stocks. Then he thought, I could set dollar amounts for other things too. For a new car, he would save $35,000. For a new house, $500k. But he was excited to buy government bonds for $10,000. It will mature in several years. He saved $1000 a month and tithed too. The young man tithed the amount of verses the pastor would read. He had a great time meeting thresholds and thinking about new ones.
