  • Have a long term view
Wealth creation must be seen as a marathon, not a sprint. You have to get set to plant seeds today that will germinate into a worthy financial harvest. Learn to delay gravitation, so you can enjoy a bountiful future. 
  • Have a vision
Vision sets you on course. When you have an idea of the kind of destination you want to arrive at, it becomes easy to stay on course and focus until you get there. Develop a good idea of what you want to become and what your life will look like when you arrive at your destination. 
  • Set goals
Develop a habit of breaking down your vision into attainable goals. Goals are best achieved when they are set one at a time. The execution of one goal spurs you to set and achieve another. Ensure your goals are personal, so there will be continued drive to achieving your goals. 
  • Earn daily
This is actually getting to work. There are habits that must be inculcated to ensure your retirement plan is in place. Such habits include getting up early, seeking opportunities daily, preparing intentionally to explore such opportunities, working smartly, adapting to change, monetizing your skills and knowledge, demanding to be rewarded as you are worth, among others.

  • Have emotional intelligence
It is easy to become immersed in all the hard work that you do not pay attention to the impact it has on your mental and emotional health. You can take off the stress by recognizing the source of the distress, then take out time to deal with them. You should also learn how not to transfer the tension you feel to someone else. 
  • Invest in your well being
You have to imbibe a habit of prioritizing your physical health. Engage in regular exercises, drink plenty of water, eat balanced diet and in moderation, get enough sleep, and mind your own business. 
  • Learn consistently
Stay teachable and be willing to learn from your mistakes. Failure is a good learning point, and it helps you to make progressive steps. Also learn from your successes and plan to do better with time. Invest in gathering knowledge, and be open minded to accommodate contrary views.
  • Be a creative thinker
To retire early, you have to learn to solve future problems, so you can create a legacy that would not require your active participation. This involves critical and creative thinking, so as to birth real solutions. Think about all areas of your life and attempt to proffer solutions to each and everyone of them. 
  • Have mentors
Identify people you like, respect and who have gained experience in a particular area you are interested in. Mentors are people that have successfully taken a path that you desire to take. Ask questions and be ready to learn from your mentors.  Finances are a great determinant of the outcome of a person’s life. If you desire to retire at an early age, you need to consider all of the above.  Featured image source: Corporate Finance Institute
