For those of us who enjoy watching competitive golf and also enjoy a great story of perseverance, this weekend’s US Open had both on display. Dustin Johnson had been struggling to close out a major championship after being close several times and just coming up short. Well yesterday he finally got over the hump of winning his first major, and I’m betting this will lead to more confidence and victories in his future.
While watching this play out on Father’s Day, I found a particular parallel between Dustin’s story and finances. You see, just as Dustin was trying repeatedly to get over this major championship hump, I speak with many people who are trying to get over their own personal finance hump.
Many people know what they should be doing- as in talking with a professional, maxing out their employer retirement plans, saving more, setting up personal retirement accounts or general brokerage accounts, etc. However, often times it takes a big leap to actually put these plans into action.
So if you’re trying to get over that hump, to get into a personal savings/investment/retirement strategy that will help you reach your financial goals, reach out to an advisor or financial planner who can help give you that extra motivation to take that leap. The sooner you do it the better, and just like DJ this weekend, you’ll move forward with more confidence than ever before.
