What is your ‘Happy New Year 2017’ Resolution?

Flashing lights, loud music, thumps and booms. The audience roars and screams into the New Year. A crescendo of triumph swept through the building as fireworks boom explosively into the New Year night sky. New Year’s resolutions fly like comets and flip into the sky, popping with a big bang and sparks floating off into the night firmament.

Sound familiar?

That diet or bad habit you want to quit or something you want to change, by the third day in the New Year is forgotten about.  

2016 is well on its way to a close; soon thoughts will turn to the New Year and what 2017 will bring. New resolutions are made for personal, professional and business development and naturally those less committed will make less serious commitments or not follow through.

These New Year resolutions often are brushed off as being somewhat premeditated and customary rather than an essential norm, something that will truly benefit you. Those who are committed are more likely to always be in the most successful group and they will look back on the past year, and reassess the success of their preset goals and what actions must be taken to implement new goals and financial planning. They contact their Financial Planner and sit down for an in-depth heart to heart financial analysis.

New Year’s resolutions are actually set around the idea of developing short and long-term strategies for wealth creation and planning for retirement.Financially successful individuals create goals and measure their progress by applying tried and tested methodologies in goal setting. Their perfect Financial Goals meet the New Year, building financial strength and financial well-being. Their short term goals are aimed at attaining their long-term goals making the resolution, not just a customary statement but a reality.

A New Year’s resolution should not be like the last bang of the Old Year, so make the smart choice and contact your Financial Planner now to set that meeting for your New Year’s Resolution.

A financial planner can be someone who sees you as a number; they sell you the product that works best for them, they do exactly what you ask for, no more and no less. We are not like that, to us, our job is not to sell you a product, it’s to help you realise your dreams.
