27 Apr Believe in Your Dreams!
We all have dreams. However, too many of us doubt that are dreams can be a reality. If you don’t believe it, you won’t spending will be random. What do I mean by random? You share your dollars between impulsive whims that you’ll regret later and your dreams that if unmet you’ll feel terrible.
A friend of mine is a financial advisor. He’s excited about using a line of credit to keep his dollars working 24/7 to help he and his wife to achieve their dreams. To help him visualize his savings, he began using my ‘Create Your Own Line of Credit Scenario’. Was he ever in for a surprise! He and his wife were spending money and weren’t sure where their money was going. He realized they had random spending. He realized that clearly identifying their dreams is the first step to ensuring their dollars are spent on what’s most important to them.
Bring Life to Your Dreams
Too often, we aren’t specific enough with our dreams. How do you know if you’re being specific enough? Tie your dream to a particular date. Ask yourself, “What must happen for me to know that I’ve achieved my dream?” Next ask, how much it will cost for me to achieve my dream?
