One of the most important requisites to creating your financial goals/plan is receiving a financial education. I remember taking algebra in high school, something that I have almost never used since then. However, I was never offered a class on wealth or success. In college, some may have taken economics, finance, or accounting, but most of us learn about money from our family and friends. Unfortunately, our family and friends are often living paycheck to paycheck or have not reached their own financial goals. Who, then, should you go to for financial advice or a financial education?
There are three types of people that you can choose to learn from:
1. Those who have never been wealthy/successful
2. Those who have tried to become wealthy/successful but have failed
3. Those who have tried to become wealthy/successful and have succeeded
If you are looking for an education in money, wealth or success, the best way to learn about achieving those things is from people who are more wealthy or successful than you. Who are you taking advice from? How many people do you know personally who have achieved the level of success or wealth that you hope to achieve? If the answer is “none”, then here are some ideas:
