It is a big question and gets the wheels turning, doesn’t it!
We all indeed dream about being free from financial limits, and for most, it isn’t about having a jet plane or a yacht. Most of us would keep our lives similar, and our loved ones close, adding a few luxuries to share with friends and family.
Oh, and maybe take a fabulous vacation!
Our perfect day or life is usually not that far from where we are now – and that’s a good thing. It is, however, important to consider this question and take some time to think about the answer. That is the way you start to take steps to get there. One day at a time, one transaction at a time, you get closer and closer to your goal. Here is why knowing where we are going, allowing for flexibility, keeps us on track to get there.
Focused Mindset – if you are focused on a goal, your energy will flow towards that goal. Once you declare it and set your plan in place to get you there, you can let it go.Your energy and mind will continue to work towards that goal by following the plan, and you no longer have to stress every minute about the future. You have a purpose, a plan, and now you can focus on living for today, letting tomorrow take care of itself.
Mindful Spending – Setting up your finances to achieve your goal is a brilliant plan! It is proven that when we have a meaningful goal in place, we will weigh the opportunity cost before spending outside of our plan. It is ok to be flexible and sometimes spend on unexpected opportunities, but the important thing is being mindful of how this affects your long-term goal and getting back on track.
Let your Imagination Run Wild – Giving yourself the freedom to explore what is meaningful and what your life would look like without limits might surprise you! Often it is closer to our reality than we ever expected, which is a comforting thought. It is good for the mind and soul to let ourselves think and imagine life without limits from time to time. You may discover something new or something that no longer serves you. Knowing your plan will shape how you manage and budget your finances, ensuring you are saving or spending on adventures or items that add to your life!
The summer is a time to let loose and enjoy the sunshine. It is the perfect time to open yourself up to new financial opportunities or ways of thinking. See what happens when you dream without limits!
