Dreaming of our ideal future delights and inspires us. Children, with their fertile imaginations, are particularly good at dreaming. But to make dreams come true, you need to have clear goals and, very likely, save some money to make them happen. Credit unions can help our members on both counts.
Our theme for Youth Month this April, is “The Future is Yours: Picture it! Save for it! Share it!” We’re encouraging all of our members, particularly our youngest, to write down their dreams, create vision boards, and encourage each other. These activities will help lay the groundwork for future success.
Putting your dreams and goals down on paper where you can see them every day actually helps you achieve them! Studies were conducted at Dominican University on the science of goal setting. The results revealed that writing down your goals on a regular basis makes you 42% more likely to achieve them than if you don’t record them. They determined that using your imagination (right/creative brain) and writing those plans down (left/logical brain) engages your whole brain, including your subconscious. This makes it easier for you to find and seize opportunities that will help you achieve your goals, as well as keep you motivated.
During the month of April, anyone who opens a youth account will get a piggy bank. Their name will also go into a drawing to win one of three prizes, a one year family pass to Zoo Montana, season pass to Oasis or Get Air gift card!
