Tonight the two best college football teams in America will face off to decide the National Championship. These two teams are led by two of the best coaches in the country. Both of these teams had to work hard to get themselves into this position and if you asked the coaches how they got here it would go back well before the season began. It all began years ago on the recruiting trail when the coaches and their staff identified the players they needed and convinced them to be part of the program. That was followed by hours on the practice field and hours in the weight room. Going into tonight’s game there are hours of work by the coaching staff and players developing a game plan and working to execute that plan effectively.
Compare that hard work to the preparation you give to your financial future. Do you have a coach to help you learn the techniques and skills necessary to be successful? Have you spent hours watching game film or reading financial history to know what to expect from the markets? Have you practiced spending less than you earn and investing the rest so one day you can reach the financial equivalent of a National Championship.
If not, why? If not today, when?
