The year 2016 was really a defining year for me. And one of the life lessons I learnt was that while I am good at “acquiring” and “reserving” money. Have not mastered the skills to turn what have reserved into a long term steady source of income. I invested in stocks a few years back but nothing major that can afford me to retire 5 years from now.
But what I realized last year after having a seat down with myself was – my aspirations seemed fine. But a closer look at them, I discovered they majorly pointed to addressing money, money and self. I didn’t like it!
Now in 2017, have made a mental shift from aspiring towards financial success, (which have culturally been brain wired to think is the ultimate goal) to aspiring to success in other areas of my life.
