Money Success

An important key to money success is understanding giving and receiving; giving to yourself as well as others and being able to receive with wisdom and confidence.  The gift of large sums of money, coming all at once, does not equal money success.  Witness the tragic financial lives of lottery winners.  How quickly many of them are back where they were, or worse, before they received their largess.

Money success is an attitude.  It is feeling good about what and where we spend.  Not for just a moment or a day, but for a sustained period of time.  It is a sense of financial independence and freedom arising from making good decisions about spending and saving regardless of how big or small the budget.  Money success is discipline; the discipline of keeping track, the discipline of saving, the discipline of spending.  Money success is not only learning your money style, but practicing it, owning it…living it.

“If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, and endeavor to live the life you have imagined, you will meet with unexpected success.”  Henry David Thoreau
