Tips to determine and live your values! What is it you believe and stand for? Do you value security having a secure job or being self-employed? Or do you value freedom owning a business and/or being an investor?
Your values lie at the core of everything you do. A person who values security has fear to take action and invest. This person will never invest to become financially free.
A person who values freedom also has fear, but this person will act in spite of fear and invest to become financially free. Know what you want. Determine the price you will have to pay to achieve it.
Your values are the core beliefs of your character. The values that you stand for determine the person that you are today. All improvement in your finances begins with you clarifying your true values and then committing yourself to live consistent with them. Here are some practical tips to determine and live your values.
Practical tips to determine and live your values
Tip 1: Be very clear about your values. Your values play an important role in your life when it comes to creating a financial plan to get you where you want to go. What is the most important value in your financial life today? If you value freedom its achievement is determined on how much time you spend to acquire it.
Tip 2: Do only activities that are in line with your values. Do not waste your time and energy on activities that are not going to bring you financial success. Enjoy everything you do. Think of the rewards for your efforts. Ask yourself the following question: “How can I do the activities that need to be done and enjoy the process”?
Tip 3: Let your imagination flows freely. Find clarity and let your imagination flow freely. Look at your current financial situation and ask yourself: “Where do I want to be in three to five years? What kind of life work am I doing? Do I have a job or am I self-employed? Do I own a business and/or am I an investor? Do I have active income and/or passive income?”
What are the core values and beliefs that motivate you? Based on your values imagine your perfect financial future. Imagine that there are no limitations. You can be, do and have everything you want in your life. Let your imagination flows freely.
Tip 4: Talk to people who already have the lifestyle you want. What type of person do you want to be: an employee, a self-employed person, a business owner and/or an investor? Who do you know is living the kind of life you want to live? Talk to these people. What are their values?
Use the successes and guidelines of the person to support you on your way. What are the changes you have to make in your life to get you where you want to be?
Tip 5: Take control of your financial life. You are behind the steering wheel of your financial life. Invest your time and energy wisely. Read books, budget and manage your money.
Other people can guide, direct point in the right direction, give you opportunities. Finally no one can make the critical financial decisions that will determine your financial future.
For your financial success!
