Are You Financially Making It Or Faking It?

I want to talk about something with you today and it is all about your financial vision! Maybe you don’t have one yet.

When I first started making money I didn’t have one either. So naturally I just threw my money everywhere. I bought a crazy expensive wardrobe, jewelry, a big house. Then I had to buy a bunch of furniture to decorate the big house.

Up until I looked around one day and asked myself, “Who is all this for?” Hans didn’t care about any of that stuff. The kids didn’t need any of it. And let me tell you, you might want that big house but try cleaning it every day!

What I want you to think about today is the notion society has sold you an idea of what wealth is. They’ve sold you the idea that you need these brands or those cars so everyone knows how rich you are! Or that somehow you need those items in order to achieve a certain status.

I want you to take a minute and think about your financial goals! Here are two big concepts I want you to consider.

1. Do you even have a vision for your financial future? If you don’t, your money will easily get sucked into other things. A man without vision will perish.

2. Do you feel like you have to make a specific dollar amount to prove yourself? Maybe you don’t care about driving the fancy car and having the jewelry in life, but you feel the need to show everyone you “made it.”

When it comes to creating your financial vision you have to define what “making it” is for YOU. Develop a vision that is all your own, not one someone else has TOLD you is financial success. If you create a vision based on the WRONG motives, you are setting yourself up for a loss.

Going for your financial gold medal shouldn’t be an extra stress! I encourage you to create a vision of success you want to achieve. Leave me your comments below and don’t forget to Like and Share it within your circle of influence.

In great faith,
