What makes the difference when it comes to staying committed to your financial freedom rather than distracts or lose motivation?
Achieving financial freedom requires perseverance and commitment. This is the reason why many people have problems to achieve success, and this is true not only in the financial system. Staying constantly focused and disciplined is difficult for those who are also looking to lose weight, increase muscle, improve your confidence, stop smoking … So what makes the difference when it comes to remain committed rather than distract or lose motivation? It all starts with having a specific plan to deal with the things that make the people away from their goals. In this post we will see some of the most common obstacles that we can avoid to keep our commitment and that we can do about them.
As you read the list of obstacles, Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the worst and 10 is the best) about how much we need to improve in that area. Remember, there are no right or wrong, just honest answers.
- Lack of specific knowledge of what you should do.
- Lack of a written plan.
- Prioritize unimportant activities.
- Impulsive spending habits.
- A bad attitude to the wealthy.
- Yielding to the influence of others.
So how do you do it? If you got a lower score five in one or more areas, it’s time to find solutions to the problem. Select an area to be corrected at once and then do address the following; this is a simple tip, but powerful. The key to staying committed is to confront problems directly and the best time to do it is now. The saying “the best defense is a good offense” is true when it comes to remain committed to achieving our financial freedom.
Another thing to remember is that the goal is more important than the plan and keeps our plan and we will be flexible, willing to change if things go wrong. Do not obsess over a plan that will not be willing to change when things are not going so well; in the end, what matters is the result. If you keep your plan flexible and you focus on achieving your goals and deal with problems before they occur, you will be on track to achieve your goals.
