When I’m committed to doing something, I can get very impatient. In my quest for financial freedom, for instance, I can’t wait to achieve my financial goals. I think I’ve had an overdose of personal finance articles and blogs online because I suddenly had this urge to open new investment accounts right away. But of course, it’s impossible for me to do so due to insufficient funds at present.
Talking to self: Slow down, Edel! Breathe. Inhale, exhale. You can’t do everything at the same time. You have to wait for your money to arrive, unless you can make money appear by magic. Remember, patience is key here. And a lot of thinking and re-thinking. You don’t just invest your money in one instrument just because you learned from somebody it’s a good investment. You have to do your own research, decide based on your needs and future plans, prepare your money and invest at the right time.
Okay, fine. I’ve never been good at waiting, I admit that. But I guess since I have financial goals now, I better be. And here’s my plan. I’m actually decided on what investment I should venture into next. I have even talked with my sister Jodie and she committed to put some money in it also. I’ll tell you all about it when we’ve already opened our account.
Do you also get impatient in your quest for financial freedom?
