As the new year is here, it is great to start the year with goals I want to set. Although not all goals will be accomplished within the year, it can always be moved to a future date in where it can be completed. These are my top goals for 2019
1.) Pay off my student loans. I currently have 18k left in student loans and it is a goal for me to pay $4,000 every two months, which means I will be debt free by
2.) Fully fund my Roth IRA. I have 2.5k left for my Roth IRA to fund it for the 2018 year. Starting in 2019 the max contribution for a Roth IRA is $6,000 up from $5,500. I look forward to saving up for my future retirement tax-free.
3.) Become a profitable options trader. I started options trading back in March 2018 when Robinhood made options trading available for users. I managed to make a profit of over $8,000 and nearly loss half of it during September and October when the market began having a small correction. I decided to take out all the cash I had in Robinhood to start trading with
4.) Travel to Germany. I was born in Stuttgart, Germany in a U.S Army base and was only there as a baby for a few months, before living in the United States ever since. It has been a dream for me to finally go to Germany and this year I will make it happen. Traveling is a lifestyle I enjoy and look forward to it despite paying off my student debt.
These are my top four goals for 2019 and I do look forward to accomplishing it. Many new experiences will be made towards me. I will make many mistakes, failures, and sacrifices. It will be these aspects in life that will help me become successful and happy to live a fulling life to share my experiences with others. What are your goals for 2019?
