The goals you set are yours; you have the power to choose what is important to you and design your goals accordingly. Most people’s money problems occur because they don’t clearly know what they want to do with their money and therefore spend it randomly. Clear goals are the targets you are aiming for and help you build your plan. After that, it’s a simple process to map out how you will achieve your financial goals.
When setting financial goals, think about how much you need to save and for how long. Then think about how you will accomplish that savings. For most people, this means putting a set amount aside each month, according to their pay schedule. This monthly amount is the difference between just having a wish… or making your wish a reality.
Be realistic when setting your goals. You can always increase your savings later, but start by planning for success!
