There are only four things that matter when it comes to building a better financial future.
1. Your current situation
Good. Bad. Decent. Somewhere in between. It doesn’t matter.
Wherever you are right now and however you got here, it is what it is.
2. Where you want to be
Your goals. Your dreams. Your aspirations. The life you want to live.
This is what you’re working towards.
3. The opportunities available to you
There may be many. There may be few. They may or may not be ideal, or enough to get you all the way to your goals.
But there are always opportunities to make things better than they are right now.
4. What you do next
Your mission is to use the opportunities available to you to the best of your ability in order to get from where you are now to where you want to be.
And here’s the thing:
You are the only one who can do it.
You can get help along the way. You can ask for advice. You can learn from others.
But in the end, you are the only one who’s responsible for improving your situation.
You can only build a better financial future if you’re willing to take the next difficult step forward. And the next one. And the one after that.
For as long as it takes.
So, what’s your next move?
