7 Steps to Financially Succeed in 2024

2024 is here and it can be the most financially empowering year of your life if you so choose. Of course, you can choose to financially succeed at any time of the year. It all begins in the mind. If you focus and you set a goal, you can and will reach it with a little determination and a sprinkle of perseverance. Want to make this year your best financial year yet? Let’s start!

 

Step 1: Success Begins with Mindful Honesty

Mindful honesty is imperative when beginning anything in life. To set the course, you need to make sure that you know exactly where you start from. Make a list of your debt, your income, your expenses and really take a hard look at your current financial situation. Many people live lives above their means. If you are mindful of your expenses and debt compared to your income, and you see that you are living life above your means, see where you can cut down and cut out. 

Another fantastic start to your financially successful journey is to be mindfully honest about everything that you own. What do you use and what has been lying around for ages that you have never used. Clean the clutter and sell unwanted goods. Turning the stale items into money that you can place into a savings account will really assist you on your journey. 

 

Step 2: Set Small Goals and Stay on Course

Small goals make big differences. Small goals work because they are achievable in smaller amounts of time. Think of these small goals like the chocolate calendars that lead up to Christmas day. The smaller goals make reaching the bigger goal more exciting. Of course, you could set one huge goal and only aim for that, but that would be like only being allowed to eat the entire chocolate calendar on Christmas day. Set smaller goals and set them for various areas in your financial life. Separate goals between debt, income, and expenses. Every goal that you reach will make you feel better and better. Make the goals achievable and in time you will see that you have reached your bigger goals. 

 

Step 3: Financial Education

Financial education really does empower you on your journey toward financial success. There are many channels to learn great financial tips for free. Our youtube channel, Money Moves with Debt Rescue provides insight into how to budget, how to understand inflation and various other important financial education that can help you on your journey. 

 

Step 4: Debit Orders and Sticky Notes

When stepping onto the road of financial success, debit orders and sticky notes, work wonders. Building an emergency fund is important. Sometimes you might be tempted not to put money away into your savings account. In this instance a debt order to your savings account will automate the process and give you one less worry in the month. Use debit orders for different accounts, including debt repayments so that you do not have to even think about the process. 

Sticky notes serve a different purpose on your journey to financial success. Write inspiring quotes and motivational messages on your sticky notes that will help you to reach your goals. Here are some beautiful affirmations that you could use:

I am a magnet for wealth and abundance.

Every day, in every way, I am becoming more financially prosperous. 

Money flows to me easily and effortlessly. I am open to receiving wealth in expected and unexpected ways. 

  • I am aligned with the energy of abundance and prosperity. 
  • My mind is a powerful magnet for financial success. 
  • I am deserving of all the abundance the universe has to offer. 
  • I attract opportunities that lead to financial prosperity. 
  • I am grateful for the abundance that is flowing into my life. 
  • I release all resistance to money and welcome it into my life.
  • I am a money magnet, and prosperity is drawn to me. 
  • I am in control of my financial success, and I create the life I desire. 
  • My actions create constant prosperity. 
  • I am financially free, and money is my faithful servant. 
  • I trust that abundance is my natural state, and I welcome it with open arms.

 

Step 5: Make a Vision Board

A vision board is a powerful tool that can significantly contribute to your journey to financial success by providing visual representation and clarity of your financial goals. Creating a vision board involves selecting images, words, and affirmations that resonate with your financial aspirations and arranging them on a board or poster. This process helps to manifest your desires, serving as a constant reminder of your objectives and motivating you to stay focused on your financial journey. By visually depicting your goals, such as a dream home, successful investments, or debt-free living, you reinforce a positive mindset and attract the energy needed to achieve them. To make a vision board, start by identifying your financial goals, gather relevant images and words from magazines or printouts, and arrange them in a visually appealing and meaningful way. Place the board in a prominent location where you can regularly view and reflect upon it, reinforcing your commitment to financial success.

 

Step 6: Small Rewards for Big Steps

Remember we spoke about the chocolate Christmas day calendar; well small rewards need to go alongside every goal. It can be something as simple as taking a day for yourself and going for a walk in your favourite spot. Perhaps it’s sleeping in on the weekend and having important me time. Whatever the rewards are, they need to be inexpensive and meaningful. Every reward will rejuvenate you to move onto achieving the next one. 

 

Step 7: Reaching the Goal

Mind controls matter. If our minds are in the right place, we can achieve anything. No goal is out of your reach if you put your mind to it. However, financial goals can be tricky. There are many traps along the way and if you fall into them, do not beat yourself up. Be gentle with yourself, realise how far you have come, dust yourself off and try again. Life is a journey and no matter what life throws at you, you will get there. You will reach your goals. Persevere, remember the small meaningful rewards and may 2024 be the greatest goal achieving year yet!
