Today, I want to talk with you about something… your financial vision! It’s very possible you don’t even have one, yet.

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

If you don’t have your own financial vision, it gets sucked into someone else’s financial vision society has sold you. Money is always looking for a place to go. You have to tell it where to go! Otherwise, the first time you see a special at some restaurant your money is going right there.

I want to tell you a secret about millionaires and people who are financially independent (since not all millionaires are financially independent). You see, those people have a purpose for their income and know exactly where every dime of their money goes. The rest of the population has no idea. If I asked you what you spent your last paycheck on, it would like sound like, “Oh yeah, some food and like a few other things…”

Because if you don’t have a plan for it, it WILL get sucked away left and right. The best financial advice I can give you is to find out what 98% of the population are doing and then do the exact opposite! Those people are broke because they spend everything they make (and sometimes they spend more than they make). Find out what they’re buying and don’t buy it! Is everyone going to Arby’s for lunch? Don’t go!

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.

Pursuing your financial vision shouldn’t be an added source of stress! It should relieve the stress and pressure in your life. I encourage you to create the vision of success you want to achieve.
