Brrrr! It is a very chilly Friday morning here in Dallas, Texas! The whispers of potential snow have left grocery store shelves barren as we, winter warriors, prepare to handle the brutal arctic weather.
While I don’t think we will see any white flurries today, I do like the imagery of snow. A fresh white blanket covering the ground as we enter this new year. It’s a new start and a new opportunity to start fresh with a blank canvas. 2017 will be what we make it.
I’ve been musing over the things I want to accomplish this year. Typically, resolutions fall into a few common categories- health, career, or personal life goals. We want to lose weight, get in shape, get that promotion, make more money, find a healthy relationship, be more outgoing, or change our outlook on life.
Resolutions are a great way to take a moment to evaluate where you are and think about where you want to be. The problem is, statistically, we don’t follow through with our Jan 1 list of goals. Why? I believe it’s because we don’t set ourselves up for success. Changing a habit or creating a new one takes discipline and, oftentimes, accountability.
This year, let’s change that. What goals do you have? In relation to precious metals, do you have goals for investing? I’ve read a few goals from Silverbugs. Some would like to invest in 1 oz of silver a day; others have goals to collect a certain series or reach an overall portfolio goal. How would you like to see your stack grow in 2017?
Because I’ve commented in the past on the community feel of bullion buyers, I’d like to know if you have goals outside of just stacking, as well. What is the single biggest thing you hope to accomplish in the coming year?
If you have investing goals, how can I help? What kind of resources do you think would aid your stacking goals? More blogs on investing? Advice on the right time to buy? Market trends alerts? How can Provident Metals help you become the investor you desire to be in 2017? I think by sharing our resolutions, we are more likely to be successful accomplishing them.
I have no idea what 2017 will bring. I think the American landscape could look very different after January 21st. What I do know, however, is we are the biggest influence in our own lives, and we can make this our best year. Let me know what you want to accomplish in the next 12 months and how I can help you be successful!
