What are your life goals?

Whether you’re just starting out or have a bit of experience under your belt – the formula to creating a better life doesn’t change.  Turn your dreams into goals.  Turn goals into plans. Plans into steps. Steps into action.  We’re starting a 5-week challenge to help folks do just that! Follow along with us on Facebook and Instagram for tips, tools, tricks and a few giveaways as we go through the challenge together. Here’s what we’re going to walk you through in our 5 weeks together!

Begin with the end in mind. Expand/Collapse

Start with your dreams. What do you want to be known for? What do you want to accomplish? How do you want the world to be a better place because you lived in it? What do you want to feel and experience?  What is important to you? What would make you feel like it was all worth it?  

The best way to move forward is to have the future you want to create in mind.  Beginning with the end in mind turns investing from something boring you should do into something exciting that’s helping you create the life you want.

P.S. A vision board is an awesome tool to get you started defining your dreams and goals – and we just might happen to have a few!  A vision board invites you to reflect on life and what you want to accomplish. Vision boards are not only a good place to start, but when you post it somewhere that you see every day, they can be a great source of motivation.

Comparing where you are, to where you want to be, can be intimidating and overwhelming – so much so that some of us give up before we even get started.  But when you break your big dreams into bite-sized goals, they become much more manageable.  And when you start to check off some of those goals, and you begin to see the progress you are making towards the life you want to create, you become an unstoppable force.  That’s when you start to believe, “I’ve got this!”

We’d love to help you turn your dreams into goals – you might see us as only a credit union, but we fancy ourselves as dream catchers. There’s nothing we’re better at than turning dreams into goals. Goals into plans. Plans into steps. Steps into action.

P.S. A journal is a great place to record your dreams and goals.  Capturing your feelings and memories as you begin achieving them can inspire you to achieve more.

We’d all love to have all the tools and resources in place to make all our dreams come true – and have them today. But the reality is that most of us have to balance our needs and wants, time and resources, along with the occasional unexpected turns life seems to like to throw in.  Prioritizing your goals will help you focus on what’s important and determine what can be set on the backburner to be tackled later.

You know what you want; you know what you need to do to get there – so as Dr. Seuss would say “Kid, you’ll move mountains! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way!”.  Money isn’t required for all life goals, but when it is, we’re here to help.  RRSPs and TFSAs can play an important role in achieving life goals; we’re here to help you find out.  Your first step could be as easy as setting up an automatic investment plan.

Reflect, Respond, Rework Expand/Collapse

You know what they say about the best-laid plans of mice and men – they often go awry.  Your circumstances can and will change as time goes on, and your financial needs and goals may change too. Planning for your future is undeniably important, but so is being able to recognize when your plan needs to be adjusted. Take stock on your progress regularly and adjust your plans and steps accordingly.

P.S.  Don’t forget to celebrate your successes! When you reflect on what you’ve accomplished, it will inspire you to achieve more! Don’t just start a journal – use it!  And share your success with us! We’d love to hear how your life is changing.

Creating a better life takes time and effort – but the good news is we’re here to help.  Weyburn Credit Union is a place that cares about your dreams.  A place where dreams are turned into goals.  Goals into plans. Plans into steps. Steps into action.
