The opinions expressed by Entrepreneur’s collaborators are personal.
Have you ever identified with a superhero? Perhaps, with his strength, his intelligence, his speed, with his speed, etc. Even surely as a child you dreamed of being a superhero, however, as the years go by, we lose that illusion and realize that those things only exist in movies.
But did you ever think you had a chance to be some other kind of hero?
How about a hero who has the superpower to make a lot of money?
Yes, something like a financial superhero.
I mean when you generate wealth from who you really are, from your financial superpowers, that’s when your chances of success increase significantly and you feel that nothing can stop you.
When you’re in control of your financial life, and that gives you an unparalleled sense of tranquility because you’re prepared to face any adversity the environment can bring.
You’re protected, and that gives you the feeling of great personal power, even realization.
And how can you work to become a financial superhero?
First of all, you should work on identifying some of these points that I share with you below:
Your unique detonators: What’s taking you down a good financial path and what’s got you on the wrong track. I mean, maybe you realize you tend to do a lot of emotional expenses. Or, maybe you’re very organized and keep a daily look at your finances. List what detonates good and bad habits.
Your super financial powers: What can you do better than anyone else? What talents do you have? By identifying this, you’re going to realize that you can find different ways to increase your income. How? If you are excellent in any language, if you cook delicious, if you know graphic design or social media management, etc., you can capitalize on your talent in a way that generates extra sources of income.
Your villains and cryptonites: What behaviors or habits do you have that negatively impact your finances? It could be being extremely indebted, paying for everything with your credit card, just having a source of income, making purchases you don’t need. List what puts your personal finances at risk.
Your allies and amplifiers: What strategies can you take to create better habits? Maybe you can implement a monthly budget that allows you to control your spending. Or, you can start paying off your debts and delete your credit cards. Think about actions you can take that are your financial allies.
Your action strategies: Now that you know your strengths and weaknesses in managing your personal finances. What can you do to improve your current situation? You need an action plan, just like in superhero movies.
You must draw a financial map that takes you step by step towards your goal and adhere to it.
If you don’t have a plan, you won’t make it to the finish line.
Remember, if you don’t take care of your personal finances, no one else will do it for you.
