“Intentions without a sound strategy is just wishful thinking.”
How many times have you said to yourself, “This is the year I’m going to do this,” or “I’m finally going to save money,” but nothing happens?
That’s because you need to learn how to finish strong.
It’s easy to say you’re going to do something, or make plans for getting things going “one day”. But one day will probably never come.
You need to learn to shift your mindset and your habits.
For example, instead of saying “I’m going to save more,” make a clear goal. More could be a dollar a month, and is that really going to help?
Once you’ve decided, ok I’m going to save ten percent of my check each week – then come up with a plan. What are you going to cut out to make that happen? How are you going to control your spending?
No dream can become a reality without a solid plan.
On this episode of Redefining Wealth, we explore ways to make sure you finish strong. Anyone can create an idea, but only those who are truly prosperous can make it a reality.
Download this episode today to hear tips and tricks to making sure your promises to yourself make it to the real world.
“Pride had no place in the life of a truly prosperous person.”
