What’s Your #1 Financial Goal?

What’s Your #1 Financial Goal?

“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” – Tony Robbins

It’s the start of a new week, and the perfect time to reflect on goals. This post is an opportunity for you to share one of your goals. Specifically, I would like to know what your #1 financial goal is.

I believe in the importance of setting goals, and just as crucial, I believe in the power of writing them down, saying them out loud, and sharing them. In doing one or all three of these things, our goals are given light and oxygen, and thus a greater chance to survive.

I recently saw first-hand the power of making a goal public by sharing something I had been procrastinating and putting out there that I would take action by a certain date. Guess, what? I did it! I met that goal — largely in part because I shared it.

So, I would love for you to share here what your #1 financial goal is. It can be your “big picture” goal or your “right now” goal. Share as much about your goal as you would like: when you hope to achieve it; how you’re doing so far; what successes you’ve had towards meeting it; what setbacks you’ve experienced; why it’s your goal, etc.

My hope is that by putting your goal out there, you will experience a little extra fuel needed to achieve it!

So, let’s hear it. What is your #1 financial goal?

Share your goal in the comments. I’ll go first!

    My #1 goal at the moment is to put my son through college without student loans. This is crucial for my husband and me because of the impact our own student loans had on our lives.

    Okay, your turn!

    To pay off all our credit card & medical debt in the next 36 months. We “strategically” went into debt in order to start a family. We were lucky in our IVF procedure but our baby required open heart surgery when she was born, so between the expense to conceive her and the expense that insurance didn’t cover for her special care at birth, surgery, and recovery, our debt got a little larger than we wanted. So it requires a little work to get out of, but I would do it all over again to have my beautiful healthy little girl!

      Thanks for sharing your goal, Joni! I love how you’re keeping things in perspective regarding the reasons you went into debt in the first place. Congrats on your little girl and all the best as you work towards achieving your goal!

    I hope to be able to take a few years off when my husband and I decide to start a family. More than likely, this means all of his student debt will need to be paid off for that to be a possibility.

    My #1 long term goal is to create an income through investments and hard work that will not only provide well for my family and me, but also for future generations in my family.

    One of the ways I have been trying to make a step towards this goal is by accomplishing my #1 short term goal, which is being debt free. I’m on track to accomplish this goal before the end of this year (2016). Being 25 and out of debt, I hope, will be one of the steps that will catapult me to my long term goal.
