Have you ever made a New Year’s resolution?

You know the ones – wild plans to lose weight so you can squeeze into those jeans from your 20s, or kicking cigarettes to the curb by Australia Day.

But isn’t it likely that these grandiose intentions are doomed to fail? People find it hard to stick to their guns, especially when the plan is a bit vague.

And the question remains – how badly do you want these things?

For the desired outcome to succeed, you have to want it more than you want something else.

For example, if your goal is to lose lots of weight fast, you genuinely have to hunger for a slim body more than that quick fix of chocolate cake.

You also need a solid plan. S.M.A.R.T goals. Those that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based.

There’s no point saying you want to be skinny if you don’t take the calculated steps to get there.

Many people blindly embark upon a new venture without any real strategy or tangible wins.

When it comes to investment, the same rules apply.

Are you merely investing for the sake of it? Or is there a clear-cut goal you’d like to achieve?

Again, loosely suggesting that you’d like some extra cash to retire is a bit hazy.

But knowing the specifics of how to achieve your ultimate result, is paramount to your success.

And it starts with some good advice from a financial consultant, along with a solid path forward.

It also comes back to wanting one thing more than something else.

You might have to sacrifice a few daily luxuries to get ahead financially.

It’s possible you may even have to trade in that expensive holiday to top up your retirement fund. The choice is yours. What do you want more?

With some research and a specific purpose in mind, finding the right investment strategy is a whole lot easier – as well as a whole lot more satisfying.
