Financial planning plays a significant role in one’s life. Since this is never taught in school it is better to educate yourself now to get you fully prepared as you enter adult life.

If you are unsure about how to start your financial planning, here’s a guide to help you through:

  1. Create a positive mindset - A positive mind makes the person happy, stress-free and successful. It helps you focus on your needs and on what is important This could also be your advantage as you can turn bad things into good. There are people who are hardworking and yet they couldn’t reach their goals. It’s because they have set their minds the wrong way.

  1. Set your goals - Set a specific goal that you want to achieve. For example: Php100,000 savings at the end of the year or save Php1,000 from your paycheck every month. Make sure that your goals are measurable and realistic.

  1. Know your whys - After you have set your goals, you have to know why you need them. Is it because you want to buy a new house, a car, to travel, or you need it for investment? Knowing your whys is knowing your purpose and this helps you achieve your targets easily.
