Do you have the personality to not just dare to dream but to actually take action and make it happen?
According to the FPA ‘Live the Dream’ 2017 National Research Report courtesy of www.moneyandlife.com.au/livethedream, four ‘financial action’ personality types have been identified to help us better understand WHO is best at dreaming, planning and taking action.
What’s your ‘financial action’ personality?
Are you a Daydreamer?
Daydreamers love to dream but struggle to make their dreams a reality. They seem to get stuck too much in the thinking stage and are most stressed about their finances. Also, they are not great planners as they do not really know what they want.
Only 16% of Daydreamers say they are currently living the dream.
Are you a Cruiser?
Cruisers as the name suggest ‘cruise’ through life without much dreaming and simply prefer to enjoy their life without too much thought about the future in mind.
They are not planners nor do they like to stick to a plan, and are the least financially secure with minimum experience of success.
Only 8% say they are living the dream.
Are you a Builder?
Builders simply like to get the job done without any further thinking. They are focused on the now and living in the now than dreaming about the future, and they seem to live life with no regrets.
Builders are the least stressed about finances.
18% say they are living the dream.
Are you a Go-Getter?
Go-getters not only love to dream but they equally want to turn their dream into reality with planning and taking action.
They know what they want in life and will work at it to achieve them.
Builders are most likely to seek advice or have sought advice from a financial planner (58%).
37% say they are living the dream.
Go-getters are living the dream!
What makes the Go-getters different from the rest? What’s their X-factor? What can we learn from them?
Let’s face it, we all want to carve out lifestyles we dream about and make an impact in our own way. So, what can we do, improve or change to become more of a Go-getter?
The number one quality, according to research, of a go-getter is that they have strong personal habits.
Habits of a Go-Getter
Strong Self-Belief & Drive
Go-getters have a strong belief in themselves to be able to create the life they want. They are masters at focusing on their strengths, turning weaknesses around and are resolute in their determination to never give up even if things don’t go their way.
Go-getters make time for the important things in life, and they associate close family ties and relationships as the number one contributing factor to their success in life. They enjoy spending quality time with their family.
Not just family connections are valued but equally they value the relationships they have with others, and appreciate their success in life comes from surrounding themselves with positive influencing people and connections..
Think & Plan
Go-getters understand the secret to unlocking their dreams. They know thinking and planning for the future is the key to earning the lifestyle of their choice.
Planning can be daunting and challenging but Go-getters show us that it’s easier and better to aim for tangible short-term goals that can be achieved quickly. It’s the frequent sweet taste of success that spurs and drives them to constantly move ahead.
Go-getters stress the least, they are financially secure, they value the life and the lifestyle they have, cherish the important people in their lives and they are always happy to learn from others and take advice from others.
As the research states:
‘Go-getters inspire us to act on our dreams and create a plan for positive change.’
