Staying Financially Focused

In today’s world there are a lot of distractions that will prevent you from achieving your dreams. Personal dreams. Career Goals. Professional dreams. You name it. The goal is to stay focused and remember the why, and always have a true north.

Overcome Distractions

Distractions can come in the form of family, friends, life throwing all kinds of hurdles and challenges at you, and yes, even yourself. To be successful, you need to become really good at identifying these challenges and facing them head-on. Saying no should be common practice for you, because not every opportunity is beneficial for you. Not every expense is necessary, and not every craving is warranted.

True North

Find your true north and hone in on it like you would a sailor at sea. Why are you on this journey toward financial freedom? You have to really dig deep into the why and into that emotional energy that made you take the first step in the beginning. Use this as fuel to keep you focused.

Vision Boards

Use a vision board to motivate you. Every morning, look, and I mean, really look at your vision board and imagine what your life would look like with more money, better pay, or a fulfilling career. Feel all the feels. That is the only way you will truly and authentically stay focused on your final destination.


Be accountable to yourself when you fail. Take note of why you failed and remember not to let yourself make that mistake. Failure will place you a step back, but if you do not get up, you may need to take many more steps forward to catch up. So constantly remind yourself that you need to get up, and it will get easier. If you can see change, you are one step closer to your goals.

Rinse and Repeat

It is really important, in fact crucial, to be consistent. If you have monthly payouts scheduled for debt repayments, make sure to be on time with your payments. If you are setting aside money for rainy days or just to be able to live in comfort, be consistent about setting aside that money. Trying to be consistent is not the same as being consistent. And the person who is consistent even 80 percent of the time, will reach their goals faster that the one who tries 100 percent of the time but never actually does anything. Once you are consistent, rinse and repeat.

To Your Success!
