Do you want financial health? The first step toward achieving healthy finances is setting goals. Having a goal in mind will help you stay on track and move you toward your destination faster. Here’s how to set and keep financial goals to make your future better.
1. Write it down
It won’t be enough to keep a mental checklist of the financial goals you want to reach. Start by writing down what you would like to accomplish. Make a separate list of short-term and long-term goals. Once you see what you want to achieve with your money, it will give you the motivation you need to move forward.
You can go one step further and create a financial freedom vision board. Include pictures of the financial goals you want to accomplish, so you can have an image to refer to every time you check your bank account or balance your monthly budget. For example, if you want to be debt free in three years, post a picture of someone who is looking at a credit card statement with a zero balance.
