It’s one thing to set your goals. It’s another thing to achieve your goals. This is, most especially, when it comes to your financial goals.
You see, it’s not just about setting. More so, it’s not just about achieving. It’s about acting upon what you’ve set for what you’ll achieve.
The only question is: how?
Here are some ways:
Know the difference between needs and wants.
Food, clothes, house, electricity, water – these are needs. Gourmet dishes, expensive wine, designer bags, concert tickets, cable TV – these are wants. By now, you should know the difference between needs and wants. This is not just for you to identify what needs to prioritized, but also for you to focus on more important things like bonding with your family.
Begin a savings lifestyle.
Saving money doesn’t need to be hard. Thus, you need to begin a savings lifestyle. This will not just help you save more. It will also help you become more patient and more determined – and self-disciplined enough – to act upon your goals. What’s more, this kind of lifestyle is pretty much something anyone can do. All you need is to learn how to wait, learn how to persevere, and learn how to refuse.
Write it all down.
Your financial goals, your accumulated savings, your planned budget, your new investment – you should write it all down to help you get a clear picture on what you’re looking to achieve and how you’re going to act upon it. You should also write down every cent you’ve spent, in order to learn more about what triggers you in spending too much and knowing more about what prevents you in spending too much.
