It is how we view ourselves and not how others view us is the first thing we need to get a hold of in life. If we allow ourselves to be ruled by how others will see us we may become paralyized or at worst never express our true feelings or be who we were meant to be.
This does not mean just shouting from the roof tops what ever is on our mind. Rather it means taking the time to reflect on who we are and what do we as an individual mean to us personally.
The following are types of questions you may want to ask yourself: What do I mean to those around me? What was I born to do? What do I want to accomplish? What talents do I have? What talents do I hid? What does the voice within wish to tell me?
Being a quality person is more important than being a person who is fixed on being a person who values themselves for their finances. In this blog I will explore money and ways to accomplish financial freedom, however, a rich person in the bank account does not ever equal a person who knows true wealth is being balanced in all areas of life.
So with this in mind I stated that to start the new year you could take advantage of writing down goals. Not just learning a new language and losing 25 pounds. Though those are great goals write down in depth catagories. Yourself, family, housing, transportation,travel,finance, health, spirituality, rest, etc.
This process is really free flowing. You do not need to write down how it is going t0 just write down what it is you would like to see happen over the year. You need to get an idea of what is important to you and you alone.
Over the next couple of weeks we will explore how really review your finances(other areas of life as well) and how to plan out your goals of independence. Understand it will take time. If you are willing to sit out a couple of years of work it will be worth it. I will work with you privately if you need help and will tailor a program to suit your needs.
This is a way to share with others things I have learned through study and through years of trial and error. Nothing teaches life's lessons like first hand experience.
So go to it write down your goals. Send me your comments. Let's move onto the new year 2011 by taking charge of your life. Whether you are employed, self employed, retired, or recently unemployed you can benefit from this exercise.
I wish you peace and prosperity always. Denise
