Is Financial Success a Pressing Priority?

You say you want to make more money, right? But understand this. Nothing will happen until you make a conscious commitment, until financial success becomes a pressing priority.

A commitment is not the same as a goal. A goal denotes the desired destination. A commitment means you’re determined to reach it…no matter what.

Here’s the beauty of a committed decision. You don’t need to have a plan all figured out. All you have to do is decide what you want and do what comes next.

Commitments are like magnets. They attract opportunities.

But be warned: those opportunities always lie just outside your comfort zone. At some point you must decide what you’re really committed to: increasing your income or staying where it’s safe. You can’t have both.

Are you committed to financial success? Yes or no? Leave a comment below and tell me about the next step you’ll need to take.

    Yesterday I bought 300 stocks in General Electric based on a lot of personal conversations I’ve had with four very smart men and what I read in a Japanese newspaper about this company. Have you ever purchased this stock? I’d be interested to hear your opinion on this particular stock, because I followed my gut instinct on this one.

    The last time I bought stock I was 21 years old and I think my mommy and daddy decided what stock to buy and bought it for me and influenced when to sell it for me. They used their broker to do this for me from the age of 15. I’m a very young at heart 44 year old now.

    Starting my own online trading account was a nightmare! There were so many obstacles in the way. (long story) It took four months and I nearly gave up. This morning when I woke up I could see how much money I made. Very satisfying feeling!

    To answer your question, the next step I intend to take is increasing my Australian Superannuation fund. It’s a little bit more sophisticated than an American 401k and I can touch it when I turn 55. It’s performing very well which encourages me to contribute. Unfortunately, I can only afford to contribute a little bit of money this year, however I believe something is better than nothing. Every year a plan to slowly increase my contributions.

    Big round of applause Lisa…I love your enthusiastic determination to take control of your finances. Really impressive. I’ve never bought GE stock…most of my money are in ETFs. The only advice I’d give you is to make sure you’re well diversified and not too heavy in one stock only. That’s what gets people into a lot of trouble. I’d love to hear more about your progress. Keep in touch. And thanks for commenting!!!!
