How close you are to achieving your financial goals depends a lot on what those goals are. For most of us, just having enough money to pay the bills each month is a step in the right direction. But if you don’t know where you currently stand, or don’t have any plans for how you’re going to improve your situation, how do you know what to do next?
That’s why the 6 Stages of Financial Freedom shared by J. D. Roth over at Get Rich Slowly is a great place to start. From the Dependence Stage – where you are spending more than you earn so you rely on others for financial support – all the way up to the Abundance Stage – you have enough money to do whatever you want – this ladder of personal financial success will help you understand where you are today and where you want to go from here.
