Most people think that wealth building is about getting as much money as they can and many of these people don’t have a goal. They just go around learning from other people, books and courses to learn how to make more money. It is not going to work and it will waste our time. Setting a clear goal is important to wealth building because:
If you are not using goal to guide you, greed will guide you. Do you notice there are lots of people go from one business to another business, job after job and achieve nothing by the end? This happens when they don’t have a goal. When you are committed to a goal, goal will get you commit to something and find possibilities to make it happen. When you allow greed to guide you, greed will make you attracted to programs or opportunities that you can make money faster and easier. Goals will guide you to achieve bigger results and fulfillment, greed will guide you to achieve nothing and blame everyone including yourself at the end.
Some people say goal is a limitation to achieve results better than their goals. Successful people don’t think like that because they set goals beyond what they can achieve and find possibilities to achieve. Others set goals they can achieve and stop working when they achieve it. I was one of the people who think that goal is a limitation. When you use goal setting the way how successful people use it, it is not a limitation for you to accumulate more wealth. It will be a method you can use to achieve unexpected amount of wealth you never achieved before.
A goal allows you to see where the problems are. Many people avoid setting goals because they are afraid to face their goals when what they are not achieving it. When you have a goal, you know what is not working. You will check all the goals you set when you are not achieving $10,000 profit in investment. It might be you invested in one bad company, your information research spend too little effort or your investment combination is not working.
It is very important to have a clear goal when you are building wealth. Use goal setting with the SMART method. S.M.A.R.T. stands for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.
