Essentially Financial - Keeping on track

Essentially Financial - Keeping on track
Under the title of 'Ties are optional', Les Conway shares his thoughts about what’s going on in the World and how it can affect and impact your lifestyle and finances.  
With 2022 being my 60th year on planet earth, I’m undertaking what I’m referring to as my Challenge60 Quadrathlon. It’s a series of sporting challenges being completed over the coming months and totals 100 kilometres, circa 60 miles. Additionally, I’m raising much needed funds for https://www.raceagainstdementia.com/. 
If you want to find out more, just click on https://www.justgiving.com/Les-Conway1. Your support and all donations will be gratefully received and faithfully applied. 
At the time of writing, the first of these four challenges is coming up this weekend and where I’ve been in a regimented training programme to prepare.  
I have my personal trainer coaching me and my physiotherapist keeping me limbered. Most importantly, both are keeping me on track. Thus, allowing me the greatest chance of success. As opposed to me thinking that I know all the answers and I can coach myself.   
Interestingly, this is exactly the same in lifestyle financial planning terms. The core principles being where we first get people on track, followed by ensuring that they stay there. All with their personal and perhaps family objectives in mind, which are of course unique to them.  
Sure, I could’ve saved myself some money and watched a few YouTube videos and trained myself. But I doubt, in fact I know, that by not having someone making me accountable to my aims and goals, would’ve meant that the possibility of failure would be greater. 
There are so many things that we all want to do in life. But we make excuses in that we don’t have time, the capability or resource to do it. 
Remember that life is not a rehearsal, and we only get one crack at it. And although the money is important, it’s what we do with it that really counts.
At the very least wish me luck. I’m going to need it!
Investments can fall as well as rise and you might get back less than you invested.​
