Step 2. Have a financial road map. Know your investment goal, your purpose and your investment horizon. Investment horizon means the time period or years you want your money to stay invested. Once you draw a financial road map and you determined the cost of your monthly investments, then start immediately. Do not procrastinate, delaying your investing can cost you more money.

While making your financial goal, take time to read how much you should invest to acquire your target earning asset during retirement. What we mean by “future” here is the retirement days, right?

Step 3. Do not invest, hope and pray. Invest with confidence by means of acquiring knowledge and skills on investing. Attend financial literacy seminars or investing seminars. Also, it is advisable to consult with a certified financial planner.

Step 4. Self disciplined is a must. If you really want to succeed and achieve financial freedom, you need a self discipline. To have a self discipline when it comes to investing, ask yourself what Robert Kiyosaki is always asking in his book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”; the question goes like this; “who is smarter, you or your money?”. Of course, you! Money are just paper and have no brain. You have a brain that can control the money.

Step 5. Stay updated. Continue learning and growing. Increase your knowledge. Read news about the market, track your investments and keep on investing until you will achieve your financial goal.
