Welcome to Finance and Fury! Today’s episode we continue our miniseries which looks at the best places to invest in 2019…
Turns out, one of the best places to invest in 2019 might actually be in, Yourself.
Today’s episode is the first building block for the next two episodes where we will cover off on the two routes of building wealth throughout your life; your career and starting your own business/side hustle
Either way, it all starts the same. And this is what we will be covering today; what you need to do in your own life to work out whether starting a business or developing your career is the best thing to do. It all comes back to what your purpose is and what your personal goals look like. It’s not just about making money, but also about being happy along the way.
Today’s episode will actually be somewhat of a summary of a previously archived “Steps to Success” episode. We talk about the importance of accepting responsibility, finding your purpose, building the vision of your life and then making it happen. I’ve put together a workbook too, which you can download it here for free to help you plot out your own purpose and goals, and start putting your action plan in place. It’s super handy. Print it out and follow along with the episode.
- Take 100% responsibility: To be successful you need to be 100% responsible for your own life. Give up all excuses and stop playing the victim. Taking 100% responsibility makes life simpler. If you accept that you have 100% responsibility, therefore control you can become the master of your own success – the world doesn’t owe you anything, you have to create it!
- Find your purpose: This is the path that will guide you along the way. This is where the workbook really comes in handy.
- Creating a vision: Get the vision right and start achieving it! Having a vision, allows you to complete a picture of your ideal life. Your vision should show you where you want to head and provide some motivation and focus to help achieve this. Life happens, there will always be setbacks but the best way of overcoming setbacks is keeping your long-term vision in mind and working towards this.
- Set your Goals: Goals are the ‘building blocks’ of your vision. Hone your Inner GPS – help fill in the gaps and reverse engineer some steps to build your ideal life
In the next episode we’ll be putting this in place through investing in your career or starting a business…but, the first step is to know you are on the right path.
