Prosperity doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are 5 things you can start today to bring success and abundance to you.
Get your head in the game – Have you checked the conversation you’re having with yourself about money? Ever say things like “I’m so bad with numbers” or “I don’t even want to open that statement.” Stop it! Getting ahead with money is as much of a head game as it is taking the right financial moves.
Set your plan on auto-pilot – It’s much easier to save when you have it happen automatically. It’s like an automatic watering system for your plants. If you’re already contributing to a company retirement plan consider upping your savings percentage. If you don’t have a plan or can sock away more, then set up your own systematic savings plan by having money come out of your checking account and into an investment account each month.
Talk to your honey about money – Don’t become one of those divorce stats, instead open up about money with your partner. Learn about his or her money upbringing. Create a joint vision of where you want to go and then create a financial plan to get there. Got money secrets? Fess up!
Create a prosperity picture – Create your very own picture reflecting what you most want in life. Use images (from magazines, drawings, or photos) that represent your goals and dreams. Then put these in a “frame” based upon how soon you want them and how much money it will cost to see these become a reality. This is the start to a visual financial plan.
Boost prosperity through giving – Yes it sounds backwards, but giving can actually make you wealthier. Studies have shown generous people make more money. So why not set up an automatic giving account when you set up your automatic savings fund? This is an account you put money into on a regular basis that you then have available to give away to causes, organizations and people who could use your help. BONUS- Research says giving will also improve your health and longevity – so you’ll be healthier AND wealthier!
