The idea of being wealthy is something just about everyone has for themselves in one manner or another. I mean really, who wouldn’t enjoy having enough money to not have to worry about bills, or purchasing anything when it’s needed, and when we’re done working to be certain we have enough to finish out our years without having to wonder if it’ll be there.
Fortunately for all of us, becoming wealthy is possible for anyone who is willing to make the decision, and put in the effort that is necessary. When I say this, I’m not talking about having funds to invest in stocks or other things either. I’m talking about having an income, paying attention to where our money is going, and learning the good sense of how to spend, and not spend, appropriately.
Let’s talk about this and see what’s possible. You’ll also more than likely come up with thoughts and ideas where you’ll disagree. That’s fine. Let me know. Not everyone has the same life, but there are many thoughts, habits, and ideas that we all have that are similar, if not the same, and are true money wasters!
Every day we all have some sort of regular habits that we tend to go through. Things that we enjoy, like, prefer, and often don’t even think about since they’ve become habits. For example, I always enjoy a hot coffee in the morning to get going. If I were to purchase this along my way to work, I could get it at a local establishment for $1. That would work out to $5 a week, $20 a month, and $260 in a year. Making this myself at home before I left, I can make it for approximately $0.10. That works out to $0.50 a week, $2 a month, and $26 per year.
That’s a difference of $18 a month, and $234 per year that this money can be used elsewhere if need be, or not at all depending on my financial circumstances. Now some might be thinking, “What’s the big deal of $18?” Apply that to other habits you might have and the money you’re spending and could be using elsewhere or saving.
This describes one of the first steps in becoming wealthy where things may seem minor and insignificant, but to those who are serious it’s an important decision-maker! Are you willing to make the changes necessary that will require giving up things that may seem foolish or stupid, but over even a short time will make a huge difference financially?
You see, many aren’t willing to make the simple changes it will take, and that’s also why there are so few in the world who truly desire to become wealthy!
Think about what some of your daily habits are, and what the costs related to those habits are. No matter what it is we do there is a cost related to it somehow.
Right now, consider what it is that you do and has no true use in your life and can be given up. This can includes extra foods and drinks that we acquire for the simplicity of it, some of the fancy things in our lives that we either don’t need at all or could have gotten by with some simpler and less expensive, or that special gadget we just had to have that was on sale and we’ve used only once or not at all!
If you’re truly making the decision to become wealthy then know where you’re spending your money, and be willing to make the necessary changes in those spending habits!
