The best goals will make you to stretch to achieve them but also have clear steps you can take so you know exactly what you have to do to succeed. This is the basis of the best financial goals. 

Financial targets are great because they are so tangible, you either hit them or you don’t. Financial goals are at their most motivating when you link them to something you want. Whether its a bucket-list holiday, being debt-free or buying a home, when you know how much you need and what you need to do to make that money, the goal really works.

But what if you've tried this all before and it hasn't worked?

The problem is most strategies for achieving your financial goals are one-size-fits all. This means when you try a new system or approach and it doesn't work you can feel that it's your fault that you've failed. 

The truth is no two routes to success are the same. 

What works for someone else won't necessarily work for you. That said, there are there are certain patterns or themes that form the blueprint for success. We have researched these patterns, themes and beliefs to created four personality profiles: 

  • The Entrepreneur

  • The Philanthropist

  • The Guide

  • And The Inventor

Each of these profiles have strengths and weaknesses, and each of them achieve goals in different ways. So we've created a goal setting tip sheet that will help each profile work out how to progress towards their financial goal in the way that best suits their profile.
