Money is always in the top 5 of most people’s list of wanting to either have more; control spending; spend more; improve their plan; or even to create a plan!
This is the season for goal setting and I am excited to be offering you a free webinar tomorrow (you check it out here… Webinar Information!)
For now, I know you are eager to get started and you’ll want to see results as soon as you can. Start by setting one or two goals to turn your money and finances in a positive direction.
It’s important to make sure your goals are doable; this will help you achieve them! So I wanted to give you 3 steps that you can take right now to help you set realistic goals.
#1. I want you to think short and long term. Write out money goals of where you would like to be in; 3months, 6 months, one year, 5 years and 10 years. What are you doing? Who are you with? What does your life look like. Don’t worry right now on ‘How’… that will come later. Let your mind be free of reason and just write out as much as you can. (An even more powerful technique – is to write it down as if you have already achieved it!)
#2. Know Your Numbers- KYN! For those of you that have been to my workshops or seminars – you know that this is the key. It’s the starting place and provides you with the opportunity to quickly evaluate where you are and where you need to go.
How much do you owe? (all debts – including your mortgage)
How much do you own? (all savings, investments, home equity, etc)
How much do you spend? (what is your total monthly spending… have to keep all your receipts)
How much do you earn? (what is your income from job, pensions, commissions, royalties, etc)
#3. Now pick your top 3 goals from #1. Now depending on what stage you’re at in your life – this’ll be different for everyone. Here are some examples to help you;
~ start your own business
~ stop using credit cards and use CASH
~ start saving for a down payment on a home
~ pay off your mortgage
~ create a monthly cashflow and budget
~ investment in real estate or stocks
~ generate a retirement plan
Just doing these 3 things right away will boost your success with your money. It amazes me every time I set goals for myself of the power of putting our intentions and dreams down on paper and watching them come true!
I hope you can join me for my webinar tomorrow – where I’ll share much more information with you to help you say… Money? …Yeah I do that!
