It’s All About the Money… So Hold On To More of Yours
There are two great status symbols that trump everything else in the world – money and power. No matter what you do for a living, you probably have quite a bit of money run through your hands (and your bank account) every month. If you want to have more money, you need to learn to get a grip on what you do get. Staying debt free is one of the greatest things you can do for your future.
Develop Good Habits Early
If you are young and single it can be very easy to get loose with how you handle money. After all, you’re having fun and there’s no one who you are accountable to, other than yourself. You need to get past that attitude and get serious right away. If you start spending more than you bring in early on in life, you could be paying those credit card bills for years down the road. Do you really want to pay for a night on the town with your friends when you’re 35 or 45 years old? Think about that before you start burning up the credit cards.
Become a Cash Only Man
Staying away from excessive credit card use can be crucial to your financial success in the future. The best thing you can do is to get on a budget, figure out how much spending money to allocate each pay day, and get it in cash. When you only spend cash it is easier to say no to unneeded expenses. It is also more attractive to the ladies. Say what you want, but it’s much more attractive to have a wallet full of cash than it is trying to figure out which card still has any money left on it.
Have fun with your money and buy what you want, but be sure that you control your money. The biggest financial successes in the world are people who know how to control their money. If you don’t learn to control it, be warned that it will control you. Cash only is the way to go if you want to have power over your money.
