Visitors: 172

People may have totally different goals for wealth building and wealth may have different meanings to an array of people, regardless of how affluent they are. There’s one thing in common that financial planning is the key to the successful wealth building regardless the wealth building strategies they use.

Goal Setting

Wealth building starts with financial planning and financial planning begins with goal setting. Without a solid focus and a list of goals, you will never be able to accomplish what you’d like. The first step to wealth building is to come up with a list of goals and set priorities for each goal. You’ll still be able to reach your most important goals if something unexpected happens. Goals should be very specific and quantified in numbers if possible. .

Planning

Once you have set the goals for your wealth building, the next step of financial planning is to lay our a feasible and executable plan. For instance, if your short term goal is to own a beautiful home in five years, you would plan to put $20,000 down for the down payment for your house five years from now. If one of your goals is to have one million dollars of net worth by retirement one option is to put $300 a month into your 401k plan and choose S&P 500 stock market index fund. If you’re 35 years old now and plan to retire at age of 65, you’ll gave exactly one million dollars 30 years from now assuming the SP index repeat itself in performance at the rate of 10% return.

Disciplines

By developing a plan and sticking to it, you will easily be able to accomplish your goal. For many financial planners, they recommend keeping a journal and a list of your finances. This way you can see what you are saving and why you are saving it. For instance, if you go to the grocery store twice a week, keep the receipts and do the math to consolidate your balance monthly.

Once you have a goal, created a plan, and disciplined to execute the plan, the strategies and the techniques you learned from wealth building seminars or real estate investment seminars would take the course of your wealth building further. You can learn what to avoid and what to try out. You’ll exchange the ideas with the people who are on the same journey, and share the frustration and your joy with those who’ve achieved their goals.
