Let’s go

Map out your own financial future

Investing time and effort into your finances can save you a lot of headaches and worry! Bottom line is Budget your life. Ever thought “If I had a million dollars, I would. …”? Well, you need not have a million dollar to get straight with your finances. It is important to be extra serious and wise in your spending, saving and investment. Use an app like Daily Budget as your own pocket financial advisor. Once you have accumulated enough savings, it is important to invest part of that in assets that will appreciate. Stocks, real estate, and commodities are also options to consider. The reward for investing is more freedom. One of the best things you can buy in life.

Nurture your health it’s priority

If you can’t take care of your body, you can’t take care of anything. Eating right and fueling your body with the balanced nutrients is essential, it doesn’t have to be boring, and there are plenty of recipes to try any time, any day. See your body as a car, give it right quality fuel. What you consume play a critical role in your productivity generally. Also work out, develop a daily exercise routines to keep you in check. You are what you eat, so queen eat right.

Practice gratitude

Practicing gratitude is powerful, it reduces aggressive tendencies, greatly improves physical and psychological health, promotes better sleep, and makes you happier which maintain a positive mindset making you more productive and effective in your work

Shawn Achor explains in his TED talk, taking five minutes each day to list three things you’re thankful for trains your mind to look for the positive.

Read, read, read

Keep a daily gratitude journal or spend a few minutes each day listing things that you are truly grateful for. Remember, Always be thankful. Reading is a fantastic way to invest in yourself, which often cost nothing. It increases your general knowledge, stimulates your imagination, and improves your vocabulary. In other words, books takes you places you’ve never been and gives you powerful ideas you have never thought about, actually books are prepackaged boxes of ideas.

Reading has become tremendously easy, that there are no excuses not to read. You can listen to audio books whiles you are on the go, kindle, or Ebooks. Almost all the great people spend time reading. Invest in some good books, not only is it entertaining it also gets your creative juices flowing

Set goals, goals diva, goals

What is your #1 goal this year?

Often, we get so caught up in the day-to-day activities that we fail to give attention to the most critical things. This personal strategy keeps you in shape in all aspect of your life. You need to take the time to set SMART(Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely) goals for business, personal, and ooo financial life. Not having any goals in your life is like driving in the dark with no headlights. You are as good as dead. Prepare a goal diary which may contain daily, weekly, and yearly goals, write down what you want to accomplish and then use an online tool like Time Tracker to keep a record of everything you do. Set Goals but also remember to smash them as well.page3image5875120

Get a mentor

Finding a mentor is hard, but the benefits are worth it. Mentoring relationships are a powerful source of inspiration, guidance, knowledge and connections. People who hold you by the hands, direct you and help you throughout life. Everyone needs a mentor. How? Search through your connection and contacts, outline people who you admire for a particular reason, one who has a lot of experience in your line of business or personal growth and also someone you can resonate with . Then side line a list of potential mentors by preference and start contacting them! The goal of mentorship is to build your relationship overtime. So don’t rush the process

When you invest in yourself, a world of opportunities opens up for you. No one will invest in you until you invest in yourself first.
