The start of the New Year is a natural time to review your hopes, dreams and goals. For most people it ends there. Only 8% of New Year’s Resolutions are actually achieved.*
People think it is simply a matter of will, misunderstanding how habit change really takes place. They fail to put plans in place or get support in to help achieve their goals. Little wonder they experience ground-hog day each year.
Yet it is possible to achieve your goals. For most of us money is an important aspect of our goals. Not money in its own right but rather the choices that it enables. It helps us afford the goals we have.
One of the proven ways to growing your money is to make better use of it. In essence financial planning is about getting clear on the goals you want to achieve and then maximising the effectiveness of your money to help achieve them.
Clarity about your goals
Organising the financial aspects of your life – investments; super, insurance and household finances
Objective plans in place – ones that all parties agree on - to achieve the goals. Money is highly emotive as it is often connected to our self-worth and other choices. Objective advice helps minimise this
Accountable support – to help keep you to the plan and review progress towards achieving the plan
Educated advice – to help inform your decision making
The key thing is that it pays to get help. Just as an athlete needs a coach to get their best performances so a financial advisor can help maximise the value of your money. Making it work for you. Growing it. Helping you to reach the goals you want.
