hold on to your earnings
As you earn, you will be prompted to spend money. But remember something, as you age you will need to live on something for the days when you can longer earn. But in the paradigm of living we only think about the now. Yet what about the thought of tomorrow. You can’t just live frivolous and worry when that time comes. Because if that time comes and you have nothing then it becomes your own fault. Why do we do it? Why do we live like there is no tomorrow and only for today? And there is more to this than most people are willing to disuss.
How you were raised says a lot about how you look at money. When I grew up, it was all about paying bills then if you have more left over. But few think with this mindset. Especially if you grew up where money was not as cared for and respected. Yet even in a house where money was valued, some people still spend without thinking about tomorrow. Me, I’m always thinking about the machine collapsing in on me. Maybe because my mother lived off of why put off til tomorrow what can be done today. So my necessities havw always been number one.
keeping up with the joneses
We as people do not like being left out. And because of that we must spend to keep up with the crowd. But will the crowd be there when you falter due to your spending. You have to think about living another day. Live everyday as it’s your last is the dumbest concept. Or do people take that statement to literal. Because living everyday as your last does not mean spend your last. If means get up everyday being productive. Just in case this is your last day on Earth.
