Financial Freedom Secret #2: S.M.A.R.T Goals
Know and set your major SMART goals in life and work towards achieving each one of them especially if you are aiming for financial freedom and stability. Do not wait for things to happen but instead make things happen! Be proactive instead of just being passive simply by setting SMART goals. Start setting SMART goals as early and as many as possible and always be ready to adapt to change if ever it happens. These goals will be one of the biggest contributing factors to financial freedom. In dealing with big goals, just break them into smaller easier to achieve ones and take it one step at a time until you can finally reach the last one. Before you know it, you have achieved a lot of big goals in life, which you thought impossible to achieve before.
The way to setting SMART goals for financial freedom is from the word “SMART” itself. SMART is an acronym for S-pecific, M-easurable, A-ttainable, R-ealistic, and T-ime Bounded. This acronym should serve as your guide in setting your main guide called “goals” since you cannot just set any goal you wish without adhering to this simple acronym guide. As an example, you should not set goals like “to become rich” because it is too vague and is not very clear of what you really want which will lead to the possibility of frustration and disappointment of not being able to achieve it. The correct way to this is to say something like “to be able to have $1 million savings by the year 2030 or about 18 years from now.” See how it is now clearer and more specific compared to the first one? Plus the expiration date of 18 years from now or 2030 will help in pushing you hard enough to ACT NOW and ACT even more as you get closer to your goal especially with regards to financial freedom. It gives you that sense of urgency with a good amount of pressure to really make you get out of your own way and move out of your comfort zone going the extra mile pushing yourself to your limits just so you will be able to have that sense of satisfaction of being able to achieve that SMART goal you have always dreamed of achieving.
Before we end this second secret to financial freedom, know that those who survived the holocaust during the time of Hitler in World War II did not necessarily survive because they were fit and healthy nor smart…they simply survived because they knew how to set SMART goals! You too can survive the holocausts in your life and be able to achieve lasting financial freedom as long as you follow these guidelines. For more info, feel free to contact us right away!
