Your Financial Freedom Goals Begin with a Thankful Mindset!
In America, they celebrated Thanksgiving. And while many may think it’s just about eating a big meal, it’s really a time to think about the things you are thankful for and enjoy being with family and friends. But with recovery from Superstorm Sandy going on, the current state of the economy and high unemployment rates, it may have been difficult for you to enjoy this holiday. It can be easy to have a bitter attitude… but don’t fall into this trap!
Support is a Major Key to Success
Getting the right support and advice to help you on your journey to financial freedom is essential. In addition to finding the right advisors, you also need to put together a support structure in order to be successful.
As the famous quote by John Donne goes, “No man is an island, entire of itself.” And as I say in It’s Rising Time!, “for you to get from where you are financially right now to achieving your financial dream, you cannot do it all by yourself. It is impossible!”
Unlike your group of good advisors, your personal support group is your reliable, go to places to get moral, mental and emotional encouragement. This is a group made up of people you trust and can turn to, especially when times get tough. They listen, are aligned with you to accomplish your goals, and most important, give you honest feedback – even when you don’t want to hear it!
Face it. We can make a lot of excuses, especially when it comes to money. But imagine making these excuses out loud to a group of close friends whom you trust and admire. They want you to succeed and will provide the encouragement you need to turn your negative thinking around. Without this ongoing, support group in place, you will probably quit.
According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the benefits of support groups include, “Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged, gaining a sense of empowerment and control, improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment, and reducing distress, depression or anxiety.” Who couldn’t use this kind of positive influence in their life? So with this in mind…
When I was a young boy, I had the advantage of two perspectives on money because I had two dads—a poor one and a rich one.
My poor dad was a government employee. As the superintendent of the Hawaii school district, he made a decent salary, had health benefits and enjoyed a pension. Though he had a good job, he didn’t understand money. So, he struggled financially all his life.
There are two types of investors.
- Packaged investor: The most common investor buys packaged investments. He calls a retail outlet, such as a real-estate company, a stockbroker or a financial planner, and buys something. It could be a mutual fund, a REIT, a stock, or a bond. Packaged investing is a clean and simple way of investing. An analogy would be a shopper who goes to a computer store and buys a computer right off the shelf.
- Creative investor: This investor-type creates investments. She usually assembles a deal in the same way a person who buys components for building a computer. Like building a computer from scratch, this type of investing takes time, talent, patience, and knowledge.
If you want to be rich, be a creative investor.
The creative investor is a professional investor. Sometimes it may take years for all the pieces of a deal to come together. And sometimes they never do. It’s important to learn how to put the pieces of a creative investment together. Sometimes, the tide goes against you and you see huge losses. But when the pieces come together, it’s a huge payoff.
Rich dad encourages you to be a creative investor!
Easy Peasy! 1×6 = 6, 2×6 = 12, 3×6 = 18, 4×6 = 24, 5×6 = 30, 6×6 = 36, etc. No big deal…
But why is this important, why do I ask this on first sight trivial question?
Are you struggling to keep a positive cash flow or you want to increase your Net Worth (increasing assets vs. liabilities)? Or, are you thinking how to overcome the financial crisis or are you dreaming of more personal & financial freedom? If so, maybe this simple table of 6 can make the difference!
Are you doing what you believe you are meant to be doing? Or are you working simply for the paycheck?
Are you doing things and making choices to make a few people in your life happy?
Are you hiding behind busyness e-mails, paperwork, work that keeps you busy but does not move you toward your true life’s work and dreams?
In light of the recent presidential elections in the US (agree or not agree with the outcome), I was inspired to write this article based on the principles of the “American Dream”!
What is the American Dream?
It is not a simple business plan which you can find in books and it’s not a software program which you install on your computer. No, it’s the national ethos of the United States, a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success. In plain and simple words; believe in yourself, have dreams and make the impossible possible!
A typical American Dream is the story of Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook. Started as a simple IT student he and some friends had the idea to create a social website… The rest is history!
The key of this article is then also: “Believe in yourself and anything is possible!”
Creating a complete marketing funnel is essential when it comes to turning website visitors into prospects and eventually paying customers for any product or service you choose to offer.
This is a powerful method and one that is used by many of the ‘top’ marketers online today. As you are probably aware, people don’t like somebody else selling to them, but what they do like to see is a great offer and especially something for ‘FREE’ that has a high perceived value.
“Marketing funnel” refers to the marketing strategy used by businesses both offline and online to channel fresh prospects to their business with the sole intention of creating customer-business relationship with them. Marketing funnels have been around for many years though they are becoming more streamlined as online marketing begins to take prominence.
The Four Foundations of Financial Literacy
A friend of mine’s son started kindergarten last year. The young boy excelled at math and art, but he struggled with reading. For him, reading was a chore. It was hard work with little payoff. My friend had to be diligent in making sure his son read each and every night. Because given the chance, his son would have been off playing instead.
