Leverage, Relationships and What's Your Number
Welcome to the Growth Guide, a weekly newsletter where I share actionable ideas to help you Live Better, Achieve More and Be Financially Free.
This week on the Growth Guide Podcast we talked to Rick Hanson, Ph.D, author of Making Great Relationships: Simple Practices for Solving Conflicts, Building Connection and Fostering Love.
Relationships will determine your future.
But, this isn’t a subject they teach in school.
This book provides 50 simple powerful ways to improve your relationships at home and at work, including how to:
Stay centered so conflict doesn’t rattle you
Communicate effectively in all kinds of settings
Convince yourself you truly deserve to be treated well
Express your needs, so they’re more likely to be fulfilled
See the good in others even when they make it difficult to
Set and maintain healthy boundaries or resize your relationships

If you want to be a millionaire, you need to understand how leverage works.
When we talk about leverage, we aren’t just talking about debt.
We’re talking about how you leverage:
When you think about it, isn’t that what we all want?
We want the ability to achieve more in our lives while we do less.
We want to be the best we can be and to do it with the minimum effective dose.

What’s Your Number?
A few newsletters ago, we talked about what you’re optimizing for.
Understanding Your Number is another way to think about what you’re optimizing for.
Your number could include:
Net Worth Targets
Target Retirement Age
A Stock Portfolio Target
Target Retirement Income
Number of Rental Properties
When you understand what your numbers are, you’ll have something to work towards:
Set the target
Create a game plan
Execute it on a daily basis
In time, you’ll achieve your number
When I determined my numbers, it gave me a target to work towards on a daily basis throughout the years.
It became a North Star.
Do you know your numbers?
If you don’t, how can you determine them?
