As the Summer Olympics in Rio kicked offed this past weekend, it is time again for us to marvel at the prowess of the best athletes in the world. They deserve all the awe we can muster, training that hard for that long- many of them all their lives- to finally compete for their respective countries in front of millions and millions across the globe. The process is truly amazing, and the reward of just competing on that big a stage is just as memorable.
Whether you’re a veterinarian, bus driver, CPA or welder- everyone can be their own champion when it comes to their finances. If you practice determination, discipline and hard work in your financial planning you too can achieve a level of awe in yourself.
The level of achievement will be different for each circumstance, but the feeling of being in control of your retirement planning, college savings for your children, investments or debt management, can be just as remarkable as the Olympians we’ll be watching over the next month.
So challenge yourself to start, or continue, a healthy routine with your finances. This may require speaking with a financial advisor, reviewing your current financial plan, or simply saving an extra $10 each week. However, with enough tenacity and hard work, you too can bask in the glory that is being financially comfortable and prepared for the many obstacles everyday life will throw your way.
