ACQUIRE AND KEEP YOUR WEALTH – MONEY QUOTES

This post is not just about acquiring wealth.  It’s also about keeping it.  Many highly paid and educated people live paycheck to paycheck due to their poor spending habits.

Many of us have heard about celebrities and athletes who have made millions year after year only to end up broke in the future.  The same has happened to many people who have won money in lotteries.

Acquiring wealth and keeping it depends a lot on your attitude about money.

My favorite quote is “live below your means”.   For example, if you make $40k per year, try living on $35k per year.  That may be tough for some people, but at least make a habit of paying yourself first before you pay your bills.  That means put away a certain amount of money into an investment or savings account each-and-every pay period.  Set it up on auto-deposit.  After a while, you won’t miss it.  If you do this, you will have a greater chance of achieving your money goals.

Also, spend time learning about investing and what compound interest can do for you.

I hope the following quotes will inspire you to save, save, save.
