Tips To Achieve Financial Success In Your Lifetime

Thursday, January 7, 2010, 10:25 AM | 2 Comments

For some folks, financial success means peace of mind and not worry about debt and its intricacies. For others, it means more. More than they already have, no matter how much. If they get hands on $19 million, they are not satisfied. They would use any means necessary to be financially successful.

Let’s talk about us – the so called 99%

What can you do to gain financial success – by legitimate, ethical and honest-to-God fair methods? From time to time, I have given my humble opinion and the opinions of experts of how to embark on this mind-boggling journey and achieve what we have always wanted to achieve. I say mind-boggling journey because that’s exactly what it is, at least for most of us. We spend our whole lifetime doing otherwise nothing but to achieve financial freedom and success.

Is success in personal finances success in life?

For the majority of folks – at least we have been led to believe – success in personal finances is success in life. The reverse, for these folks, is also true. That statement may or may not be entirely correct. It certainly is arguable. There are pros and cons to almost everything.

Well, come on the horse-driven bandwagon – slow and steady – and see how best you can achieve financial success. You gotta start today if not yesterday. That means start saving for now, for retirement, your kids’ college and for a whole lot of other things.

However, before you take your first step towards your financial success, change your mindset

  1. Take your personal finances seriously
  2. Believe in your ability to succeed
  3. Be willing to put in the effort necessary for your financial success
  4. Understand how much and what type of effort is necessary
  5. Commit to a plan and strategy for your personal finances
  6. The most important aspect to have the right mindset is being able to see progress in graduated steps.

My friend from the 60s says: “To say is one thing, to do it is another and yet the result might be totally different than say or do.” Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

The following are some tips to achieve financial success in your lifetime without losing your mind:

Take care of your debt first

Debt is not always bad. If you can manage it and manage it easily, without any significant hardships, then it can be a means of your family’s livelihood. So keep that in mind.

Take care of your personal finances

First understand what and how things stand in your personal finances. If anything that you cannot appreciate and is useless, get rid of it or sell it if you can.

Take care of your credit

Use wisely, any kind of credit can do wonders for you and your family.

Find the best advisers

Easier said than done. But do your best. Follow these guidelines and ask friends and family.

In a Nutshell
Remember borrowing money is renting money and whatever you rent, you better damn make sure you are able to return it to its original owner.

Remember also what Mary Ellen Edmunds once said: “We buy things we don’t need, with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t like.” Just think about it. In other words, you must stop and learn to live within your means.

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
