When it comes to money, we can sometimes be our own worst enemy. It’s not that we don’t want to succeed. It’s that we get in our own way. Or we just aren’t sure how to go from A to B.
So, today, here are three common, but very important mistakes people make with their savings goals. And, you’d better believe that I run into these too!
Can you resonate with any?
- You have no idea what to save for.
- You have goals, but they’re vague. Things like “save more money.” And they’re nowhere near specific enough to motivate you.
- You get caught up in day-to-day living. After all, it’s in your face constantly. Ads, whiny kids, and convenient purchases are all wearing you down daily. And leaving you broke without even noticing in the moment.
If you’re tired of feeling like you’re wading in a swamp of mud to figure out your savings success, I’ve got you covered!
After reading one or both of these blog posts, you’ll know what you want and have the tools to GO AFTER IT.
First, this big list of things to save up for will give you all the ideas you need to shape your imagination and your future.
Then, check out these good financial goals examples. This article shows you exactly how to take your vague goals and turn them into actionable (and totally doable!) plans that will turn even your biggest dreams into reality.
And the great thing is that when you take care of mistakes #1 and #2, you’re always avoiding mistake #3. Because once you have a clear mindset and goal action plan, the little tempations fall away. Sure, they’re still there (and they always will be), but they’ll no longer have the same pull on you.
That’s it for today! Let me know in the comments: which of these mistakes have you made and what are your big financial goals for the future? I’d love to know!
