It continues to be a great privilege to teach and coach thousands of millennials the fundamental components to achieving financial success over time. Near the end of my presentation, when I see my 5 Step Plan really sinking in, I then ask the audience this question: “Now, what is the only thing that can get in the way of you achieving long term financial success ?” The answer I hear is a resounding “ME”.
It can be natural and tempting sometimes to believe that external elements like the economy, the economic condition of your parents, the job market, your perceived intelligence, etc determine your financial future. But none of those circumstances or perceptions have anything to do with achieving long term success with money.
Financial success is a choice. It’s your choice. And it starts with being willing to reprogram your mind to start thinking about and seeing money differently. For nearly all millennials you have a great opportunity to put the brakes on and steer your financial future in a whole different direction.
The sky really is the limit for you if you decide to make the choice to learn how to save, manage, spend and invest money differently from the rest of the crowd. You can end the blame game and begin to take ownership of creating a life that fits your dreams. One step at a time.
