Despite our best intentions and desires, many of us have a tendency to drift through life, essentially functioning on autopilot. It may not seem like we’re doing this, especially if we have consuming jobs and full schedules that keep us busy most of the waking hours of the day.
But activity isn’t the same as accomplishment or satisfaction. And unless we actively work to create the lives we want, we may find that, when all the activity dies down, we have little to show for our efforts.
That’s why it’s essential to carve time out of our busy schedules to focus on what we truly want out of life – to foster a vision to guide our actions and ensure that we make the most of our time on Earth.
Don’t Settle for Less
There is no reason to settle for an ordinary future when it’s possible to live out your wildest dreams. Think about what you would do if money weren’t a concern. What are your passions? How would you spend your time if you could do whatever you wanted?
Beyond this, what kind of legacy do you want to leave and how do you want to be remembered? If you believe, as I do, that we all have a responsibility to leave the world a better place than we found it, what meaningful contribution can you make?
A legacy can be as simple as making sure you provide the best possible education for your children to helping to build schools in less developed countries to further the education of all children. One is not necessarily better than the other; we can’t all do everything. The important thing is to think beyond yourself.
A Lasting Financial Legacy
Just as it’s important to have a clear vision in order to create the life you truly want, it’s also necessary to be visionary in the financial planning that can make that life a reality. As the world of work changes and benefits that were once taken for granted can no longer be relied on, it’s increasingly important to take personal responsibility for securing your financial future.
And this is where I can help you. The days of going to an investment advisor, handing over your money, and hoping for the best are over. Instead, I will teach you how to potentially increase your income by creating a solid plan based on fact – not opinion or old-school myth – and thus avoid leaving potentially millions of dollars of income on the table.
No one wants to spend the last part of their lives struggling and worrying about money. I want you to be wealthy. I want you to share the wealth with your kids, to give to the charities you love, and to do the things that you really want to do. This is true financial freedom – the kind that allows you to realize your dreams and to leave a lasting legacy.
Wherever you are in your financial journey, now is the time to take it to the next level.
