What dreams do you have? What goals do you want to accomplish? Take a few minutes and think about your dreams—for today, tomorrow and into the future.

Many dreams and goals don't require much money. For example, one of your goals might be to take a day off to visit a friend who lives several miles away. Or perhaps you dream about spending more time with your family. Maybe you want to take them for a picnic in the park instead of eating at home. These types of goals may not cost much money, but they are very worthwhile.

Many other dreams do require money. Perhaps you dream about the following:

  • Owning a dependable car
  • Renting or buying a home in a safe neighborhood with good schools
  • Paying off debt
  • Starting your own business
  • Getting more education—whether that means earning a GED, learning job skills or a trade or going to college

How can you make your dreams come true? A lot of determination helps, but so does believing in yourself and knowing that you deserve the life you dream about.

If you believe in yourself, keep focused on your goals and manage your money along the way, you'll be headed down the path toward reaching your goals. It's just a matter of allowing yourself to dream—and then getting started in making those dreams a reality.
