Financial well-being is a state of being wherein a person can fully meet current and ongoing financial obligations, can feel secure in their financial future and is able to make choices that allow them to enjoy life.
Just as your physical well-being, your financial well-being is necessary in ensuring your balanced financial life, it goes a long way in placing a balance between your income, expenditure, savings and investments. While certain achievements like education, employment and even income are important and add positively to your financial well-being there are other vital factors that are often neglected that goes a long way in improving your financial well-being. Below are the vitals:
Financial Enlightenment: Financial Literacy is vital when it comes to the well-being of your finances. Day after day, individuals are forced to assume greater financial responsibility which shows itself in several forms in an increasingly complex world. You therefore need to be capable of making sound financial decisions; otherwise you risk adding to the already large percentage of financially illiterate people who in turn greatly makes up the percentage of the poor masses!
Cultivate Savings Habits No Matter How Small: The savings behavior of individuals and their knowledge about money, have a much bigger effect on the overall financial well-being. Knowing how to save is an important habit you should adopt to be fit financially and step toward financial freedom. Saving money is essential but most times we find ourselves spending more than we should and at the end, there will be nothing left to save. Having a piggy bank, no matter how childish it looks will go a great length in helping you organise your loose change; and at the end of your savings season, you’ll be amazed how much you’ve made out of almost nothing!
Imagine this, you hop on a flight to a resort of your choice. You spend a month reveling on the sand and surf. You don’t even carry out any of your official activities; you are just own your own world relaxing, and then you return to your base, check your bank account, and notice your balance has grown while you’ve been away. You’ve returned from your month-long trip with more money than you had when you started. This can be your life if you create self-sustaining passive income.
Don’t Neglect Investing on Your Mind: Many think they are poor because they have no money; they are wrong! So many others think they’re rich because they have some money; they are wrong too. Poverty is not the absence of money and riches is not the presence of money. Both riches and poverty is the state of THE MIND!
To increase your current income is not far fetched, though it seems like a hard to trace zigzagged journey, yet it only takes a shift in mindset to fully understand and implement. When you understand this one principle it will lift the limit on your income.
Having a balanced financial life, is the desire of many people if not all; as this goes a long way in ensuring an all round healthy life. The above, if practically applied, will go a long way in improving your financial well-being.
