#1 Set Your Money Goals
It’s time to get your pen and paper out and make some decisions. What is your goal for earnings for the next 6 months? 12 months? 5 years? 25 years? Write it down and in addition create a dream board that is a vision of what wealth is going to look like for you. What are you going to do with your wealth? What are some of the things you are going to buy with your wealth? Think big – don’t hold back.
#2 It’s Time to Track Your Spending Habits
It is time to create a journal of how you are spending your money. There is software that can help you do this tracking just where your money is going not just by where you spend it but by category as well. For example, entertainment, utilities, housing, etc.
#3 You Need to Create an Income Stream
All around you are business opportunities and you don’t always require a large amount of capital to get started; however, you may need to think ‘outside the box,’ change the way you are thinking about getting your start. You also need to set at least one goal and more is better. Here are some examples of goals:
* My goal is to own my own business
* My goal is to be my own boss
* My goal is to have financial freedom
* My goal is to be in control of my life
* My goal is to create residual income
When you begin to focus on the goals that you set, you will actually reprogram your subconscious suddenly opportunities will begin to pop up everywhere. It’s exciting!
#4 Don’t Be Afraid to be Generous
Be generous with your money. If you have not had money you might tend to want to hang on to your new found money – your growing wealth. But you need to begin to think and act like you have abundance and share it freely. This does not mean that you are being careless. It means that rather than giving the basic 10 percent tip you give 20 percent. It means helping someone that’s down on their luck, or it means sending flowers to someone that’s important to you. Make a pact with yourself to be generous once a week.
