No matter what your financial goals are, following a few simple tips can help you reach them.
1. Name your goal. Be as specific as you can about what you want. For example, rather than saying you want to start saving more, name the amount you want to save and for what purpose ($3,000 for emergencies, etc.).
2. Give it three months. Whether its whittling down debt or starting an emergency fund, the best way to bring your goals to reality is to take action for three months. After that time, you will have formed a habit and are less likely to get off track.
3. Share your goal with others. New research shows that people who share their goals with a friend are 33% more successful than those who keep their plans to themselves.*
