Money matters

Money makes the world go round… or so they say. You’ve probably had a look around and thought… what gives? Everyone else seems to have a tonne of the stuff.. where’s mine. You want the new car, the nice house, the feeling of accomplishment… right? But it doesn’t matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to get that break. What’s that all about. You work hard, you save… but still, you’re driving around in your beat up car, you’re living in a run-down estate, you’re unappreciated at work… and you only get to eat cheap food.

The good news is that getting rich can be taught… just like riding a bike. The school system simply doesn’t teach us how to be rich. Why would it? The government want compliant, docile, slave. Not rich, financially independent individuals. So it’s not in the governments best interests to teach us how to look after ourselves. Instead, we live in fear scrimping and saving our whole live, just to die in an old-people’s home in our eighties. Sound like a rough deal… it is. Why not sort your life out? Why not find someone or a group of people who can show you how to become financially independent? Is it really that hard? Well… it’s not easy… but it is simple.

Do you read? If not, you need to start! For most, the best place to start isn’t with your earnings or your finances, it’s with your self. A large part of most people’s in ability to achieve their life goals is lack of confidence. There are plenty of books that can help one overcome deficiencies in self confidence, just head to amazon and look. Next up… sort out your attitude. You need to be open minded, bury your inhibitions, destroy procrastination and take action. Learn to work better with people.

Once you’ve got all that sorted, then you need to look at your earnings. If you’re employed by someone… then you need to evaluate if that’s the job you want to be in. If not, get a new job.

What are you spending with your money! What ever it is… stop buying stuff you don’t need. Warren Buffet once said ‘… if you buy things you don’t need… soon you’ll have to sell things you do need…’ Treat your earnings with care. Invest in things that will bring you more money. Once you’ve built up some capitol and once you’ve paid of your debt and once you’ve secured a fund for retirement… then and only then should you be spending your cash on luxury items.
