"If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time." –Zig Ziglar, we must have an aim and there is always going to be a plan and a way to achieve it. Similarly, to achieve your financial goals you need to have a plan too.
Financial goals can also be achieved if it’s backed up by persistence and good money habits.
The most important aspect in achieving our goal is to create wealth; the question is how we actually create wealth.
Having definite wealth goals can help you achieve a level of satisfaction with your money. Wealth goals are also useful as they can help you achieve your other financial goals more efficiently. Wealth goals are not easy to achieve. But, with the right approach to savings and investment, even the most ordinary investors like us can achieve great feats.
Let us look at some of the steps in creating wealth. One must be able to make a very specific goal which states exactly what and how we want at what stages of our lives and how are we going to actually achieve our goal. The specific stages is what is measurable. We must be able to measure our investment from time to time, this way it is easy for us to understand how our money is growing and at what rate does it beat inflation and other economic factors. Normally at the end of year is always a good time to review it and how our money is growing and is it specific in what we want to achieve that is our final goal. Everyone also should realize that our goals should be attainable. We won’t be to save our whole income but if we aim to save 30% of our income then that is something which is attainable and realistic. Being realistic about what we want helps us to understand what part of the income is saved and what part is invested, how it is invested, through which instruments. Our financial goals should also be relevant to what are the current trends and scenarios in the economy.
Every goal and more specific when it comes to money goals have to be time specific, this will be gives a correct measure of how to achieve our goals with respect to time.
For Example once would like to have x percent return every year thus leading to the fact that the invested money is double or tripled over y numbers of years. The important aspect in creating wealth is to understand our habits with respect to money and how we save and invest will eventually help us in creating wealth. Some of our goals could have x amount of money as retirement fund, this actually tells us how many years do we actually have before we retire and how much should we be saving or investing every year and then comes down the portion of money that is required to save or invest every month. This is a systematic way to think and create wealth so that our goals are finally met with.
