One day I woke up and realized that my life plan was not working. I had invested generously in my career, coached others, founded some great business startups, and published a myriad of creative works, but there I was, all of that behind me, and I was worried about my financial future. I mean I had a plan–sure, many people have a plan–but the problem was I never acted on my plan.
Next step: get help.
I remembered that I had met a guy who was a financial planner. I liked his personality and his confidence, and I felt I could trust him. Even though I had never talked to anyone in financial services, I called him up and said, “Tim, I need help.” He never missed a beat, he asked a few questions, challenged a few of my fears, and in a short time I grew confident that I would be OK. Why? Because he helped me take action on my plan.
What changed for me was simple. I did not find a hidden investment trick. I did not find a stock market algorithm. What I found was a friend. I like to think of him as a coaching friend who showed me in simple terms how to set a reasonable goal, get off the couch, and take one step to getting it done.
I was so impressed with the uplifting direction of my relationship with him that I joined the company he works for.
I wanted to do for others, what he did for me. I have been coaching and encouraging people my whole life to live better, set goals, overcome obstacles and accomplish great things. I decided that if I added this essential element of one-step-at-a-time future planning, it would only improve my positive impact in the lives of others. So, let me ask you some questions: Have you sat down with your spouse recently and sketched out your future dreams on paper? Are you making progress on your life plan? Have you done the basics in protecting your family from the unexpected? Is your retirement plan causing you to jump up and down and celebrate your future with confidence? If not, I would like to be a friend to you.
