The first step to financial success lies in defining your goal. "I want to be rich" doesn't cut it, you have to be more specific than that.
What does financial success mean to you? Do you simply want to have more money you can spend? Do you want to retire young and achieve financial freedom? Do you want to be rich to shape the world around you? Do you have a noble cause you wish to realize in your lifetime?
Financial success can mean different things to different people. Make sure you understand your wishes and your goals thoroughly.
There is an abundance of ways of getting rich in this world; the next step is about choosing the best direction for yourself. How much are you willing to tolerate financial risk? Can you endure the ups and downs of life? Within which timeframe do you wish to achieve your financial success? Where do your strengths and weaknesses lie?
You can take the first few steps to financial success by truthfully answering these questions to yourself. These secret lies in being brave enough to dream big, and being able enough to break down the big dream into specific, smaller goals.
When the path to your financial success is clear in your mind and you see the steps you wish to take, the only question you will have to answer is "What do I do today?".
