Why You Need Clearly Defined Goals to Achieve Financial Freedom

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 184

Financial freedom isn't hard to achieve. It doesn't require any more hard work than is required to struggle from paycheck to paycheck. It doesn't require you to be any smarter than you are now when it comes to managing money. However, it does require you to do things differently than you're doing right now. While there are many things you can do differently in order to start achieving financial freedom, one of the most crucial things you can do is have clearly defined goals.

Let's talk about why this is and how you can start putting this knowledge to work starting right now...

How to Get Rid of Financial Worries for Good

Clearly defined financial goals will help you put a stop to worrying about money almost immediately. This is because worry and fear are born out of uncertainty. The more uncertain you are about where your money is going, the more you're going to worry. You know how it is, you're buying groceries and as you're swiping the debit card or writing the check, you have this worry about whether you'd just spent the money for your light bill.

You can get rid of this uncertainty instantly by writing out a cash flow plan and determining how much money you'll be spending on every expense. When the uncertainty goes, so will the worry.

How to Restore Hope for Your Financial Life

While fear comes out of uncertainty, hope is born of certainty. In fact, there's a saying that goes: "Faith is being sure of what we hope for." This is why having clearly defined goals will empower you to restore hope in your financial future. As soon as you decide what you're going to accomplish you'll find that something will happen which is the closest thing to magic I've ever experienced: you become more alert to opportunities to achieve your goal.

The more alert you become, the more engaged your creative imagination becomes in the formulation of plans which will empower you to achieve your goals. This will cause your hopes to grow and your worries to vanish.

But What if You Don't Reach Your Goals?

Okay, this is the primary reason people don't set clear goals, they're afraid they won't achieve them. But so what if you don't? What if you only get 75% of the way there or even halfway there? Chances are this is MUCH further than you would have gotten without any goals at all. The point of setting and pursuing goals isn't always achieving them, sometimes the greatest reward is that you build new habits, grow personally and achieve more than you would have if you'd done nothing.

So don't be afraid of failing, just set your clear goals and watch your worries vanish, your hopes grow and you financial life change before your eyes.
