Think BIG But Start Small

Keep your vision in mind, but start wherever you are.

Work back from the future to the present. Make a list of the logical steps, in order, that you need to take to get from where you are to where you want to be. Then figure out what big or small action you can take today.

Hold the idea of wealth and success in your mind long enough and hard enough, until you draw into your life the resources you need to accomplish it.

Your main focus is to keep your mind fixed on improving your personal finances and achieving financial independence.

All improvement in your life, including financial improvement, begins with you clarifying your true values, committing yourself to living consistently with them, and then aligning everything you do with them.

When you align your work and personal life to support your financial goals, you’ll find it much easier to reach them or any goal you set.

Give yourself time to plan it out and accept that your financial goals are long-term strategies. Don't put your trust in luck.

Those with financial freedom are patient, persistent, and farsighted. They discipline themselves to save and accumulate money over many years.

Don't expect failure and don't get discouraged by it.

The wonderful truth about your expectations is that they are completely under your control. You decide for yourself if you want to become rich and how you are going to get there.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

RELATED IDEA

  • Create a full inventory of expenses in front of you: Categorize them into fixed and variable; urgent and non-urgent; necessities and luxury; avoidable and unavoidable.
  • You can create a hierarchy of needs and decide which one’s to address first. It’s all about prioritizing. 
  • Accept that you have limited resources and unlimited wants. But you have to manage your resources. The sooner you accept this fact, the better you can control your impulses towards avoidable expenditures.
Financial Well-Being

Financial security is the perception that you have enough money, so you don't routinely worry about it.

Financial well-being enables people to enjoy everyday pleasures of life: seeing your children do well, having friendships, good relationships, being able to go places, etc.

Routines don’t work for most people. People with young kids, pets, people who travel a lot or work remotely, find it extremely difficult to follow the same routine every day. If you keep trying, you will only end up frustrated.

Instead of focusing on setting goals, create better systems that allow you to make a little progress every day, regardless of your schedule.
