We should make it a priority to become financially prosperous. What are the rules to becoming financially prosperous? You would start out by making short and long term goals to have more money. You should also make goals to save money because over spending would not help you in becoming more financially prosperous. You would make a goal to increase your monthly income. The more income you have the more you can save for your future.
The first thing that you should do is to assess your financial health. You would see if your job is a keeper or if you should be looking for a higher paying job. If you look for a higher paying job you could make more money and you can increase your financial portfolio. There are people that would stay with a job that pays them $10 when they can qualify for a higher paying job. If you can qualify for a higher paying job then you should change job. The more income you have the faster you can achieve your financial goal. Finance is the number one issue that can make a family succeed or fail. You would argue more with your wife if you didn’t have enough money to pay for everything in the house. You would be more stressful if you didn’t have a job and don’t have the money to pay for things. You should make finance a priority in your life.
The next thing you can do is to make short and long term goals to increase your financial portfolio. You would take out a journal and make short goals like weekly goals on how you can save money or make more money. You would make a list of things that you can quit buying so you can save money. For example, you can make a list of things you won’t buy anymore like alcohol, cigarettes, brand name clothing, or expensive things. If you make a list you will be able to cut down several hundred dollars a month and that could be several thousand a year. You would make a list of ways that you can increase your monthly income. You can make a goal to find a higher paying job or to find a second job. You can also start a business on the side to make more money. A business on the side like having a store on Ebay can bring in some great money if you have things that people will buy. You can start a consulting business and hopefully people will come to you.
Little ways to earn extra income really counts. After you finish your short goals you would move on to your long goals and see how you can increase your income in the long run. If you have a family you should get them to contribute to your financial health as well. You can ask for payments on rents and utilitities from the people that live with you so that you can cut down on cost. You can build that over time and you can start to save when other family members are contributing too. One thing that you can do to increase your wealth is to invest in the stock market or real estate. Investing can give you profits later on if you know how to invest wisely. People who invest in Microsoft or Apple should be doing well with their investments. You would find a stable market and put your money in it so you can earn a great profit later on. You can also invest in real estate and sell it when the price increase. Many people have sold their home and earn around $200,000 when home price increased two years ago.
