As Halloween approaches and ghoulish decorations start to appear in windows and gardens across the nation, it’s the perfect time to ask yourself a bone-chilling question: Are you ghosting your future finances?
Just like those eerie apparitions that haunt your favourite horror stories, neglecting or ignoring your financial future can lead to some frightening consequences and a haunting reality when that future eventually, inevitably, comes knocking.
Picture this: You’re in your 50s or 60s, and retirement is looming on the horizon like a spectre waiting to pounce. Yet, you have failed to give your financial future the attention it deserves. It’s as if you’re hiding from it in the shadows, hoping it won’t catch up with you, or pulling your blankets over your head. But unlike a ghost or ghoul, your financial future doesn’t simply disappear when you switch the light on or morning breaks. It is very real. It’s importance and power grows with every day that passes. Quite simply, if you don’t confront it head-on, it can haunt you for the rest of your life.
The scariest part is that many people will underestimate the amount they will need for a comfortable retirement, leaving them woefully unprepared. Then as retirement edges ever closer, the terrifying thought that their golden years will be a financial nightmare instead of the “happy ever after” they dreamed of, dawns.
