Character Trait — Long-Term Focus

with one comment

Long-Term Focus is about the future not now.

Most people want anything and everything NOW.

They sacrifice their future for the present.

The  result:  mediocre now and disastrous future.

Few people achieve success quickly.

Your goals are about the future.

Now is for working toward those goals.

Getting Rich Quick

leave a comment »

Never going to happen.

Stop focusing on “getting rich quick”.

Becoming financially secure is a process; it takes time.

Old saying, “Slow and steady win the race”.

Continuous improvement in your finances should be your focus.

Everybody seems to focus on getting stock tips; they pay huge dollars for advisor newsletters; and nobody is getting rich but the newsletter publishers.

The stock market is not going to make YOU rich.

Remember: too much speed kills.

Character Trait — Commitment

leave a comment »

commitment  —  the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.

If you want to be financially secure, then you must make the commitment.

This means sacrifice.

None of this

—  when I feel like it

—  when I get the time

—  I have ….  to do

—  I will work on it tomorrow

Working toward financial security must be one of your highest priorities.
