Commit to Financial Independence-Take the Next Step

Commit to financial independence-what is the next step?

If you have been following my blog for the past week or so I have been writing about my renewed goal to achieve financial independence. I started thinking about this concept around July 4th after seeing all the independence day promotions around me.

I wrote about how you need to make a commitment to this worthy goal here.

I then wrote about how to get started making it a possibility by writing your goals daily and finding your purpose.

Today I want to talk about the next step-planning what actions to take make your goals and dreams your reality.

My personal goals

I have been writing and thus thinking about my goals every single morning, day, and night for just over a week. This activity by itself has helped me stay focused on what direction and actions I need to take.

Writing at my goals from scratch each day has been a revealing activity. My goals have been expanded on and some of my goals appeared every time and some did not.

A few of my recurring goals have been:

  • I am a loving and passionate father and husband dedicated to providing positive life experiences for my family
  • I am earning over $100,000 from my sales job that I love and enjoy
  • I am one of the best salesman at my job and I am still improving my abilities
  • I am earning over $50,000 in passive income from my investments and my blog
  • I am the owner of a profitable and popular blog that has helped over a million people change and improve their lives
  • I am out of debt and have over a million dollars in savings

Creating a plan

Looking at each of my goals that I want to achieve I have thought about how can I make progress towards that goal.

My first goal

  • I am a loving and passionate father and husband who is dedicated to providing positive life experiences for my family.

How can I do this? Is this a worthy goal that I would be proud to live everyday?

  • To make this goal a reality I need to be focused on putting my wife and daughter’s needs before my own. Constantly looking how I can love, help and support them. I have been trying to maximize our time together and create positive memories and life experiences.
  • I believe this is my most worthy and important goal and is the main motivation in my life. I am committed to being obsessed with this goal until it is undeniable achieved.

My second goal and third goal

  • I am earning over $100,000 a year from my sales job that I love and enjoy
  • I am one of the best salesmen at my job and I am still improving my abilities

How can I do this? Is this a worthy goal that I would be proud to live everyday?

  • To make these goals a reality I need to be focused on what I love about my job, stop complaining and thinking negative. I need to take full responsibility for my sales or lack of. Stop making excuses or blaming the clients or business. I need to approach every day at work like financial success is my duty and obligation to my family because it really is. I need to be focused on improving my sales and learning how to sell more effectively.
  • I believe these are worthy and important goals because my family depends on my financial success and because my performance at work is determined by my attitude and level of commitment to taking enough action to produce at higher levels. I am obsessed with achieving these goals and will do whatever it takes to improve my performance at work.

My fourth goal

  • I am earning over $50,000 in passive income from my investments and my blog

How can I do this? Is this a worthy goal that I would be proud to live everyday?

  • To make this goal a reality I need to be focused and take action to increase my capital that I have available to invest. This will require me to increase my income and reduce my expenses while increasing my savings rate. I will need to learn how to improve my writing and grow my blog to start producing income.
  • I believe this is a worthy and important goal because I believe in the value of creating multiple income flows. If I am relying solely on my day job to cover all my expenses than I will be at risk if I am not able to keep working or if another event disrupts that income. I am obsessed with this goal because of that belief.

My fifth goal

  • I am the owner of a popular and profitable blog that has helped over a million people change and improve their lives

How can I do this? Is this a worthy goal that I would be proud to live everyday?

  • To make this goal a reality I need to be focused on improving my writing and growing my blog. Focused on writing content that will help people think about their lives and finances in a different way. I will need to find and develop ways to promote my blog and reach more people.
  • I believe this is a worthy and important goal because I believe a lot of people are struggling with or have given up completely on their dreams. This is sad to even think about but I really believe it to be true. I am obsessed and committed to writing and helping as many people as I can. I will not stop and I will not go away.

My sixth goal

  • I am out of debt and have over a million dollars in savings

How can I do this? Is this a worthy goal that I would feel proud to live everyday?

  • To make this goal a reality I have to be focused on paying down my debt. I will need to increase my income, reduce my expenses, and increase my savings rate. Eliminate wasteful money habits and create and develop better ones.
  • I believe this is a worthy and important goal because I believe that even a million dollars is not enough money today. I want my family and loved ones to be financially secure and protected against any financial event. I am obsessed with this goal and committed to take action until it has been achieved.
