Learn Why Self-Improvement With Your Finances Can Lead to Improvement in Other Areas of Your Life...
As a new year kicks in many are in the process of looking at ways to improve upon their finances in an effort to bring more joy into their lives.
Improving on your finances and other areas of your life in a meaningful way—whether financially or in other areas of concern will take a "higher level" of focus and determination than you are currently utilizing.
In this discussion we will look at ways that you can improve upon yourself both financially and otherwise so that you can achieve more and reach the goals that you need or desire to reach and bring more joy into your life.
What separates you from the rest in the management and improvement of your finances—and life? Do you have an effective plan of action that will take you and your family where you need or desire to be?
The following steps will get you "jump-started" on improving your finances quickly and show you other ways that you can get things moving in a positive direction (momentum) in your life.
3 Points About Managing & Improving Your Finances:
1) You must know where you now stand financially!
That means that you must know your monthly inflows of cash and your monthly outflows of cash at a minimum.
You can then determine your net worth and devise plans to improve your net worth as that should be one of your annual goals—if you desire to live more abundantly.
2) You must know how you manage your credit and determine if there is a better or more appropriate way for doing so based on your own unique credit habits.
What are your credit goals? Do you plan on using credit in your future to purchase a car, house or any other major purchase?
Do you have an appropriate payoff or pay down plan in place (in writing) and do you know the “time frame” in which your payoff or pay down will occur?
Are you currently debt-free and do you plan on staying debt-free?
In addition, you must be willing to look at "new ways of thinking" that can get you the results that you desire faster and will also help improve your attitude toward your finances—and life.
Do you have a positive mental attitude or are you taken in a negative direction depending on what occurs during the day in your life?
Regardless of how you answered the above questions in this discussion you must realize that you can do even more, and you can achieve even more.
Now is the time that you make a serious commitment to improve upon your “success qualities” so that you can not only achieve more financially, but you can improve your vision of how you see your future in all areas of your life.
Even if you feel you don’t need to improve in many areas in your life—it is important that you open up your eyes to see if there could be a better way for you to manage your finances in a manner that will benefit you and your family the most—not creditors and others who have no real concern about your future other than what you can do for them.
Keep in mind that it is "your decision" to do nothing—or do something as it relates to your finances and what occurs in the future in your life!
You have the ability to reset what you value (effective management of your finances and your life) and re-define who you are by doing what you need and want to do in more effective and efficient ways.
In many instances during your lifetime you may have to be willing to give up something good to get something better.
Along the way it is important that you are not "uptight" as you journey toward your goals.
Even if you now feel comfortable where you are—more comfort lies ahead if "you are willing to do more" in your life at this time.
If you continue on a path of improvement with your finances—other areas of your life (including your attitude) can take a change for the better, if "you" are willing to make it happen.
In closing, let me remind you that "now is the time" that you realize that self-improvement is more than a buzzword or catch phrase but something you should strive to do on a daily basis.
Now is the time that you:
Find “your” special skills that others don’t have…
Find “your” special skills that are uniquely your own…
Build your wealth in a more effective way!
Begin (or continue) your serious journey to achievement—starting today!
You and your family should have it no other way…
All the best…
