Everyone has dreams but only a few make them a reality. The reason behind the success is preparation and focus. Many people save money for future requirements like buying a dream home, seeing their child graduate from a premier school, traveling the world or enjoying their retirement. Such #LifeGoals give meaning to our life but is saving money the right way to prepare for these?
The answer is “No”. Savings are generally not focused on a specific purpose or achieving #LifeGoal. When sudden requirement arises, we tend to use our savings for that requirement delaying or even canceling our future goals. Low returns is another reason why saving is not the best strategy when it comes to preparing for a specific #LifeGoal.
