Your financial goals should include your long-term needs and wants. What you have planned will eventually reflect how you will live your life when you retire or when you reach the age that you cannot do physical work anymore. When drafting your financial goals, think about what you want in the long run. Is it to travel when you retire? Is it to buy a rest house where you can settle when you stop working? Is it to continue helping your family financially? It’s all up to you. Try to vision your life 10 to 20 years from now.
This could be a challenging brainstorming especially if you think that you don’t have enough money for saving or investing. Any amount is never enough if you think that way. Side on the positive thoughts. Even if you are just earning 10,000 or 20,000 per month, list down the things you can afford for your financial freedom. Can you save 10% of your income regularly? Can you afford insurance? The amount doesn’t matter if you are good at budgeting. Just remember to do saving and investing as a habit.
One major reason why you are planning for your financial freedom is of course, to retire early. Consider when you want to retire because this is where all the hustle and bustle rely on. If you want to retire young, then you must hustle more than the normal people. If you want to save money so that you can invest and earn a passive income instead of active income, work hard and look for potential channels of earnings. Give yourself an ultimatum so that you will be encouraged to become hardworking and persevere more. The more you give yourself motivation, the more you will crave for success.
