Improving your finances always begins with the same small step…Writing down your financial goals.
This seemingly small action has such an impact because it motivates you to get out of that mode of inaction that you’ve been in for years. And this inaction is the number one barrier (and often the only real barrier) between you and your financial goals.
Financial goal examples
Here are some of the most common financial goals. These are the ones shared with us by Main Street Group clients over and over, and may help you get started on your own list.
- Get out of debt – pay off our credit cards and personal loans.
- Pay off our mortgage as quickly as possible.
- Retire early and comfortably.
- Start investing for our retirement.
- Use our Superannuation to purchase an investment property.
- Buy an investment property (Or two! Or Ten!).
- Have an overseas holiday every year.
- Pay for our children’s education.
- Help our children buy their first home.
- Buy a new big screen TV!
We’ve had the privilege of conducting hundreds of Workshops over the years, and if there is one thing that meeting so many different people from all walks of life has taught me, it is that everything you need to become financially free is within your reach.
But you do need to do something, ANYTHING, to get started. You just need to stop standing still and move!!
So write down your goals. Then use that flicker of excitement to motivate you to put one thing in place to improve your financial position.
