May 22, 2008
Most people would like to be financially independent. However, most of them do not know how they can do it. In fact, if you can prepare yourself, you will be able to improve your financial status step by step. And eventually the dream of being financially independent will come true.

So, here comes the question: how can you prepare so that you can gradually improve your financial status? Here are some tips for you.

First of all, you should be prepared to learn. It is especially true when you are investing on stock market or Forex market. You have to learn from each trade you make. You need to create a log book to keep tracking of your tracking record so that you can learn from your past experience. You will not be able to make money if you do not try to learn from the past (mistakes).

Besides, we have to admit that sometimes we will encounter accidents. In most case we will need some urgent cash when there is accident. As a result, it is always a good idea to keep some urgent cash so that you can use it whenever there is an accident. To this end, it is very important for your to save at least 5% of your income so that they can have some cash when needed.

If you are doing some investment, undoubtedly there will be risk. You have to know your capability of bearing risk. You should never bear too many risks. It will only do harm to your financial goal. For example, some people tend to invest on something which are of very high risk. However, you should never do that if you do not think you can bear the risk!

You should try to increase your income. Of course one of the ways to do so is to invest. Yet there are also other ways to increase your income. Remember that preparations are always important. And learning is a way to prepare yourself. Try to take some courses so that you can have some skills to make money. You may not need the skill you have attained immediately. In fact, you will never know when you will need them but the chance is that you will have advantages over the others when the time comes.

Remember, your attitude and mentality is always the most essential. A positive attitude towards life will certainly help!
