Gosh it’s hard not to what with inflation surging to a record high, the growing Euro Zone economic crisis, World debt spiralling out of control, and the trade unions ready to embark on another winter of discontent.
However let’s remind ourselves that on a personal level we can do absolutely nothing to affect the above events. We can worry all we like, but fear will not change anything. These types of emotion tend only to drain you of all energy and halt you in your tracks.
Remember “time and tide waits for no man”.
Who’s got 5 to 10 years of life that they can put on hold whilst the world sorts itself out? Assuming it only takes that long!
Wouldn’t it be better if you continued living the life you both enjoy and deserve? In fact why not have an extra holiday this year, help the family sooner rather than later, or even support your favourite charity now in your lifetime rather than it be a legacy from your will.
The answer lies in the “Blue is good, Red is bad” lifetime cash flow forecasts we produce during yourTracking Progress meetings. We can take your present financial circumstances and do stress tests i.e. show you the effects of high inflation or a stock market crash on your money. The result of you knowing “what if?” is peace of mind and confidence to get on and do whatever it is that’s important to you.
What are you waiting for?
