As much as we don’t like that we have to rely on it, money seems to be what controls most of our lives. A strong financial standing will open doors for you, get you into your dream home or even take you to the far ends of the earth.
Getting to the place where you are financially stable and sound isn’t easy for everyone, so creating a financial plan is often key to making sure you get to the place you want to be. From sticking to a budget, and setting goals – it can mean simple and small changes that make the biggest impact in your future.
Focusing On Your Dreams
Dreams. We all have them, and they vary for each of us. It may be traveling to far off an exotic places, or purchasing your dream home. But your dreams are what drive you.
There is nothing wrong with having dreams, or sharing them with those in your life. But having some that push you to do more and be where you want to be is ideal – because they can help you get farther with that driving you.
Are you working every day just to do it? Or is it something that you actually enjoy doing? Are your dreams and goals enough to keep you where you are or will they help you get to the next stop. Maybe that dream is the promotion to get you the income you need to be where you want to be?
Dream big – they will help you get where you want to be!
Finding Your Financial Happy Place
We all have basic needs and yes, money helps us get them taken care of. Shelting, food, safety – a little bit of extra income can help us get all of them. But making sure you hit the financial “happy place” is what is what we all are striving for.
Not just making by. Not just struggling from paycheck to paycheck, but actually being “ok” with a little extra each month. Ideally, having enough that you can add some to a savings account or invest to have it later when you may need it most.
So what is your financial happy place? Is it having a savings fund that will keep you traveling? Is it having enough to make it each month or is it enough to buy what you want without hesitation or creating debt to do it.
Depending on your skill level, the most ideal situation would be being able to live off of one of your two paychecks a month, and putting the rest away for a “rainy day”. You want to be ready for when those financial hits come and you don’t know when they are coming.
Steps to Creating Financial Freedom
Financial Freedom is the next step – yes, you will still need a job as you build it. But if you invest properly or create a product that can pay you back great returns – you may end up with completely freedom of your finances.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to not have to punch a clock every day? It’s a dream of most people, and anyone can get there if you work hard enough. It’s the American dream, being wealthy enough to do what you want when you want as well. But just how do you get there?
There are some simple steps you can do to start your path to financial freedom including:
- Put in your time – don’t expect anything to be handed to you
- Network well, this can help you find a better job, position, or help you market your idea that can be your key
- Create a product or service that people need! This can quickly turn into an income that you can rely on
- Make a plan and budget and stick to it! Sticking to this plan will help motivate you to keep you on track to where you want to be
- Set goals and actively pursue them.
There is not right or wrong way to get to financial freedom as long as you are doing it legally. The more you can start focusing on your finances, you will be creating the path you need to reach your goals.

What are your goals?
Your personal goals are the main key to your finances. Just think about it – it’s more than just working for food and a place to sleep. Dreams are what motivate you and your goals are what drives you. So it’s time to take a serious look at just what your goals are and what they can do for you as you try to move forward.
Taking a look at what your actual goals may be the start of your journey to financial freedom. Dream big, shoot for the stars. Remember, at least you’re going to move forward and get closer to where you want to be.
Don’t be afraid of making short term goals as well. They could help you get where you want to be. Yes – a short term goal may not be that dream vacation. It may not be the dream house. It may actually only be a slightly better job but they can all build up to be greater things in your future.
Your path to financial freedom will be your own, but don’t be afraid to ask for assistance along the way. You can reach for your goals, get them and get your life exactly where you want it.
