Becoming “Wealthy” is a Conscious Act

Conscious- acutely aware of or concerned about.  To become wealthy, people always ask “How do I do it?”  Like it is a one-fix solution.  The right horse needs to be bet on, the right hand of cards need to be dealt, the right lottery numbers drawn, etc.  But the reality is, even if this method does pan out, wealth seldom follows.

How can this be?  How many times have you contemplated an inheritance, or something lucrative coming your way and you think, “This never happens! I’m going to do all the things I’ve always wanted to do!”  What happens then?   That is exactly what happens!  You do a lot of the things you have never been able to do, and in less than a year, you are right back where you started! 

Go ahead and check out the statistics, and you receive the awful truth, and here is why: Earning money and saving money are two different things.  While people may master earning money, they may be even better at spending it extravagantly, rather than saving and investing in a trusted stock to literally fold the income. 

Compounding your finances is easy, if you learn how.

Take this statement from a millionaire- “The amount of money you have has got nothing to do with what you earn.. people earning a million dollars a year can have no money and.. People earning $35,000 a year can be quite well off. It’s not what you earn, it’s what you spend.” – Paul Clitheroe

The long and short of it is if you enjoy what you are doing for a living, keep doing it!  Chances are slim you need to be making a higher income, so quit thinking about it.  Instead start a tally sheet and every time you spend money, write it down on your sheet. (You must be honest to get true results.)  At the end of the month, make certain you are sitting down, and add up what is necessary and what is wasteful that you purchased in two separate columns. 

The alarming part of this is what you spent on eating out, or unnecessary articles, probably is not even productive causing other expensive issues later.  And this exercise will become easier and easier, putting your further ahead each time.  This could be even better than winnnig a lottery, right?
