Setting Financial Goals 'Part 1

Setting goals is difficult enough without adding the word finance in the mix. Many people are reluctant to tackle the task of determining financial goals. Unfortunately failing to do so can have an adverse effect on achieving a comfortable lifestyle later on in life. This article helps to guide you in successfully determining financial goals that you can actually achieve.
Before setting your financial goals there are 3 simple rules that must be followed. You will first need to learn to how effectively control your day-to-day financial affairs. Consistently doing this will allow you to do the things in life that bring you satisfaction and enjoyment. This is commonly referred to as making a budget. The next requirement is to choose a course of action that you can follow to financial success. Finally you must build a financial safety net such as a personal savings account or retirement investment.
Simple Steps To Setting Financial Goals
Step 1 'Identify and write down your financial goals. This will help you visualize your dreams and desires in the form of goals. This can include saving to send your children to college, buying a new car, saving for a down payment on a house, going on vacation, paying off high interest credit card debt, or planning for your retirement.

Step 2 'Take the time to break down your financial goals into several smaller more manageable time driven steps. These include short-term (less than 1 year), medium-term (1 to 3 years) and long-term (5 years or more) goals. Doing this simple task will make your goal setting process easier and more attainable.

Step 3 'Educate, Educate, Educate 'Spend some time doing your research on financial topics. Read magazines and books on finance related subjects such as investing. Surf the Internet's for investment web sites and don't be afraid to learn about the stock market.

Step 4 'Periodically check your progress through a self-evaluation. You'll want to check your progress monthly, quarterly, or at any other interval you feel comfortable with, but at least semi-annually, in order to confirm that your program is working. If you're not making a satisfactory amount of progress on a particular goal, re-evaluate your approach and make changes as necessary.

Remember there are no hard and fast rules for implementing a financial plan. It is okay to dare to dream about riches, just be realistic about what you can actually do. When you write your goals down for your visualization process you will identify any that seem unobtainable and quickly see the more realistic goals that will lead you to financial success. The important thing is to at least do something as opposed to nothing, and to start NOW.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
