“The sun that shines today was shining on the day your father was born, and will continue to shine as your last grandchild moves into the darkness of the other world.”George S. Clason
Throughout history, people have been able to get rich by using various opportunities. Although these opportunities come across all of us, most of us don’t realize them. But there is one thing we can all be aware of. Anyone can achieve this: Saving. It is one of the golden rules of getting rich. By making savings, we keep some of our earnings with us. This leads us to wealth.
We pay for all the goods and services we receive. If we save a tenth of our earnings instead of constantly paying others, we will have a year’s earnings ten years later.
We should know that savings cannot be made from the remaining money. We must set aside the amount we will save before we start spending our income. This amount is actually the payment we make to ourselves.
But only saving money is not enough. Also, every single dollar we save must make money for us. Getting rich is only possible if savings continue to grow on their own. Thus, we can achieve the abundance we want. No matter how little we earn, the amount we save should not be less than one tenth. We can save even more. But we have to be careful not being too hard on ourselves.
So how does our accumulated money increase on its own?
We must either learn to take advantage of the opportunities that come to us or consult with informed and experienced people in investment. If we consult someone, we should choose these people well. If we trust the wrong people, we may have to pay this mistake with our savings.
We should consult wise people. We must seek advice from the experts. A small safe investment is always preferable to risk. High interest rates sound nice, but they are dangerous. We must be careful.
This whole process teaches us first to live with less than we earn, then make the right investments and run our savings.
I urge you to dedicate some of your earnings to yourself. Think about this. Even think constantly. So, you get yourself used to this idea. The second step you will take will be to decide the amount you will regularly set aside. Make sure that this amount is not less than a tenth of your income.
Your savings will gradually make you feel rich. As your savings grow, your motivation will increase and you will be more eager to increase your money.
You have to think about your future. Remember that one day you will grow old too. You must ensure your old age income.
And be careful not to force yourself too hard to save. If you can only save a tenth of what you earn, be satisfied with that. Do not be stingy to your present self for your future self.
Life is really beautiful. Enjoy it.
