As we approach the mid year point, with Asian Stocks tracking Wall Street as the hightened risk of a prolonged trade war, the UK political drama and Euroean elections, concerns on global economic growth seem to be influencing market sentiment not just in the US or Asian markets, but also the UK.
This is influencing decisions on investors considering safety of government bonds and safer stocks whilst the instability continues
When considering these short term factors, when structuring your financial affairs, for those that are preparing their transition for retirement, a question that for many requires a deeper understanding, is to understand how have you positioned your spread of risk and diversification for growth and income?
It’s an interest question, and one which for many can highlight how you may require support and guidance from a specialist in this field of expertise. Something I truly enjoy supporting private clients.
Equally important, is to understand the programming of your mind. Imagine going back in time when you, or even someone you may know of who worked so hard leading up to a holiday. The moment you or the person in mind got away on the holiday, the first 3-5 days were spent recovering from being poorly! Sound familiar?
What if you can learn to understand the skills and techniques to prevent this from happening, so you don’t suffer mental exhaustion or burnout?
Why am I talking about the experience of when people become poorly when they go on holiday you may be asking? Well, consider this thought. Have you ever witnessed or heard of someone who has worked so hard up to their retirement, only to become ill very quickly, or for some unfortunate ones, they pass away very suddenly and don’t get to enjoy their retirement years.
A sobbering unpleasant thought I know, but unfortunately a very sad fact.
Whilst it would be great to have the elixir of life, science has not quite achieved the solution yet. A couple of techniques however can help an inidvidual.
1/ Understand the programming of your mind. Understand what mental programming is stored within your mind and body.
2/ Understand your financial planning strategy and be active with gaining clarity.
One of the many reasons why I wrote my book. It supports an individual to understand their programming and financial affairs to reduce the risk of shortened life expectancy and much more.
With the summer holidays looming, don’t be a statistic suffering on your holiday. Take action now so you can enjoy your time off.
Wishing you all a great week ahead.
