How does everyone word their financial goals? We aren't supposed to use the word debt (I want to be debt free) which I understand. In another post Alex told me that being financially independant isn't measurable. I've accumulated a lot of debt over the years...that is one of the primary things I'd like to be rid of. Should I make my goal a monthly/yearly goal and just use that to pay it off?

What works for everyone on here?


Thanks,
Dan

not exactly what you asked for, but a great book for getting the financial part of your life handled


http://www.amazon.com/Richest-Man-Babylo...1523&sr=8-1

As for me, I usually state my goals:

"I have xxx dollars in the bank after taxes." don't worry about time, just make the dollar amount believable, but a little bit of a stretch.

I haven't had any debt for a while, so I'm no help to you there...

Goals need to be timebound otherwise they may never materialise. Even if the deadline is missed, it's OK. It may take longer, but there is a good chance it will happen.

For financial independence, you need to state an yearly or monthy income you want to achieve. Make it realistic! Don't ask for a Donald Trump income. Again you need a deadline by which you want to achieve it. Make it realistic, not imaginary.

To clear debt, again set a deadline, then you may say that: "My total cash assets with Bank XYZ will be XXX dollars by whatever date.

If you use the computer a lot, maybe you like to download the Motivator for free to remind you of your goals at regular time intervals.

Good luck!!!

I would say: no. He is talking about free software that you can download. Probably this here:
http://www.motivator.ws/motivator/

However, I have the Invisible Clock (I am the one who mentioned that in response to a recommendation about the MOTIVAIDER). And although I agree with the points made in the MOTIVATOR software copy in the link above that it is easy to let the reminders kind of fade away, I still love this tool. I use it a lot for meditation and to remind me to breathe, to use love, kindness, forgiveness etc.

Anyway, just FYI


blessings,

Steve

hey!

I started a thread on Properity way back and there were some suggestions then... You just have to decide what is best for you and then follow thru... which some of us don't do too well... (blush)...

anyhow if you like, do a search on prosperity and see if you can find it. I did get some good suggestions.

cheers~*
