In times of uncertainty, the best advice I have ever received is “control the controllable”.
There has been widespread fear and uncertainty in the world for over 12 months now.
Let me preface this by stating that this is not going to be a political post, far from it…
Instead I want to concentrate on YOU.
With so much fear and uncertainty in the world, it is important to remember what you can control, and what you can continue to do for yourself.
Now is not the time to be worrying about matters that you can’t do anything about, particularly when it comes to your wealth creation and financial freedom.
Control the Controllable
Stock markets over the last twelve months have been on a wild ride, and yet even with everything going on, are back at all time highs.
Bitcoin is aboe $50,000 after being just $5,000 twleve months ago.
Gold, silver and oil are all on wild rides, that certainly aren’t for the faint of heart.
All this tells us is that people are uncertain and fear has taken over decision making…
But when it comes to YOUR financial freedom, nothing has changed.
Today, just like yesterday or last week, is all about the choices you make each day about how you will treat your money.
Will it control you, or will you control it?
Will you use it positively or will it be a constant stress in your life?
Your financial freedom can only be achieved by you taking positive actions toward your goals. You’re probably bored of hearing me repeat this mantra…
But it is the reality…
The events around the world may impact your current investments value, but if you are trying to achieve long term goals, these fluctuations are expected.
History tells us that markets of any type have periods of volatility.
What you do in these circumstances is let everybody else panic and you sit back and watch. Let the fear subside and then decide what you are going to do, if anything.
Because what history also tells us, is that market volatility like what we have seen in recent times doesn’t last forever.
Eventually markets return to focusing on value.
The mindset of the wealthy is that they are in control of their outcomes.
They don’t let external events change their goals or their strategies.
The ninja genius of the wealthy is that they control the controllable…
And the most important controllable in times of uncertainty is your mindset.
Sure there are lots of distractions and potential changes to how the world is going to operate, but the one certainty is that good investments will still be available, and your ability to create wealth will remain.
The key is to ensure you are focussed on your outcomes and avoid the distractions.
Invest in Yourself
One of the best ways to remain focussed is to continue to invest in yourself.
You can only succeed if you are prepared to continually grow…
When it comes to wealth creation, education is your friend.
There is always something to learn, and I can attest to that, as I am always attending courses, buying programs or coaching…
I know that my success is dependent on me remaining current, learning everything there is about creating wealth.
By attending courses and conferences I get to meet new people and hear new ideas…
At the time I may not know it, but these people could become important resources for me and my business in the future.
The more you engage in the education process, the more you grow as a person, and the more you open yourself to opportunity.
Your wealth can only grow to the extent that you do! Repeat that and let it sink in.
What You Control
Spend some time this week thinking about what financial freedom looks and feels like for you.
Where will you be, what you will be doing, who you will be with and what experiences will you be enjoying.
The more your focus is on these matters, the easier it will be for you to remain on target…
These are the things you can control. Knowing where you want to be, what you want to be achieving and what you need to do to get there, forces your focus to be on the now.
At the end of the day, choose to vote for yourself, choose your financial freedom as your priority, and focus on your control of the controllable.
