In this day and age of consumerism and growing aspirations, we all have some or the other financial goals –– buying a dream home, a car, fancy gadgets, going on a vacation with friends and family, providing the best education to children, getting them married in pomp and style, and then live a blissful retirement (which is also one of the vital financial goals). In short, most of us want to live a good life!

In other words, subscribe to the idea of delayed gratification and not give in to instant gratification for fear of missing out (FOMO).
