Get Your Money Working For You
The key to taking charge of your money is to get it working for you, instead of you always working for money. Most of us weren’t taught to think this way. So we’ve got to change our mindset.
You work hard for your money. So why shouldn’t your money work hard for you?
Just like we work for income, our money should always be working to generate more income for us, in the future, when we no longer will have a paycheck. (When we retire).
Then when we spend, we want to also make sure each dollar is working as hard as possible for us.
Hollywood and advertising tells us that wealthy people drive expensive cars, live in expensive homes and like to spend freely…but is that accurate?
Research doesn’t back up what we see on movies and TV. In fact, per Thomas J. Stanley, PhD, the author of the best-seller The Millionaire Next Door, “To act like the rich, be frugal.”
This gentleman made a career of studying America’s millionaires and found them to be, well, cheap! In a good way. They don’t spend frivolously, they buy modest homes and cars, and they comparison shop for almost everything. That’s how they amassed their fortunes: they live below their means. His research showed very few had really high paying jobs or inheritances. Instead they consistently made smart choices and instead of simply spending everything, they put their money to work for them.
If we spend too much, we’re letting our money work for others. By shopping around and spending smart, then later, investing more, we can keep more of it working for us.
The lesson here is that everyday, average people all over change their financial situation by simply prioritizing saving and investing. They focus on spending smart so they can have as much of their money working for them as possible.
So let’s get started and learn some Easy Steps to do what these folks have done.
