With a new year comes new challenges. I thought I’d write down a few 2014 goals for myself.
“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”
~ Albert Einstein
1) Increase net worth by $55,000
Last year I aimed for $50,000 and passed. This year I’m upping the figure by 10% to give myself more of a challenge 🙂
2) Read At Least 3 Books related to money
Started one so far called Currency Wars, by James Rickards. Others I have lined up are “Think and Grow Rich” and “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”
3) Make $6,000 in gross dividend income
Last year I made about $4,500 so I plan to buy more dividend paying stocks this year.
Stretch Goal: Start an emergency fund and put at least $100 into it. (This one is gonna be tough 😕 )
“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”
~ Pablo Picasso
