In his best selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey described the process that you will be following.  You might want to get yourself a copy.  I found it to be inspiring!

This book explains and illustrates how 7 specific habits can significantly change your life.  Among other things, it can make a wonderful difference in your life. The 7 habits help you discover how you can create the future you want to live.

The first 3 habits take you to Independence. They show you how you can become Independent.  Being independent means you have the freedom to enjoy your life more.

If your key to the future you want is having enough money to enjoy the lifestyle you want to live without having to worry about money, then The Ten Step Values Based Process will take you to Independence, financial independence.

What are these 3 magic habits?

Here they are, but there isn’t any magic to them.  Your success depends on your commitment to making them work for you.

1.    Be proactive.
2.    Begin with the end in mind.
3.    Do first things first.

Because you have read this far, you probably have the pre-disposition to habit 1, “Be proactive”.  You are ready to act.

Habit 2, “Begin with the end in mind”, means that you have a clear idea of where you are going and when you want to be there.  That’s where Step 1 of The Ten Step Values Based Process helps you.  Step 1 suggests what your financial end could be.  Step 1 suggests the amount of money you might need to enjoy your Independence.

That takes you to habit 3, “Do first things first”.

Your first thing is found in Step 2 of the process, “Find the money”.

Read on. You can make it happen. You can create the future you want to live. And I’m going to show you how you can do it.
