A majestic creature greatly admired across numerous Asian cultures, the tiger has long been heralded as a symbol of power and intelligence.
As the 2022 lunar new year of the tiger approaches, it’s time to start off on a good foot when it comes to setting your financial goals. Tigers have strong characteristics for their hunts, are you ready to learn? Here’s what you need to do:
#1 Survey your surroundings
On a hunt, tigers use the element of surprise to take down their prey by ambush1. This would not be possible without help from their acute senses that help them survey and stay aware of their surroundings. How else would they be able to find their prey in the thick dense foliage of the rainforest?
You can approach your finances in the same way. Learn to be as keenly aware about the kind of insurance plans you have. A regular financial review is always helpful, only then will you be able to identify the gaps, and seize available opportunities to bridge them in your financial planning.
#2 Lock your eyes on your target
Although a wild tiger will mainly hunt deer and boar, it’s also capable of taking prey larger than itself — such as buffaloes and even moose. Once they sense their prey nearby, tigers will lock eyes on their target and begin the pursuit.
Just like tigers, it is important to keep your eyes on the prize. What do you want to achieve now, in the next six months, next year, or for your future? Whatever it is, starting strong means using this opportunity wisely for your goal setting, so that you can better attain your life’s pursuits.
#3 Stalk your prey well
As largely solitary creatures, there’s little room for error when it comes to hunting. Since they’re on a solo mission, one misstep could mean that their prey escapes — leaving them hungry for the day. Which is why patience is important — they stalk their prey for an extended period of time2 , studying their every move in order to find the right moment to pounce.
Like tigers, it pays to do your research well and wait for the best opportunities. However, everyone's needs are different, and not every trend or product would be the best for you. Do your due diligence in research and look for which financial products will meet your needs and bring you closer to your target.
#4 Pursue with confidence
When a tiger pounces, it’s a calculated move. After studying, locating, and stalking its prey — it’s time to sprint towards its goal. Pursue with confidence and realise your dreams with forward planning.
