I talk a lot about making more money. At any level of income you need to save your money. Here’s a good article on growing your money through compound interest.
This should definitely be part of your overall plan. I always say ‘It’s not what you make but what you keep’.
To me, wealth means more than having lots of money, which could be defined as financial wealth. It means having great relationships, being healthy, sharing financial wealth and your time with others, being fulfilled emotionally and spiritually, and being passionate about life. In other words, being wealthy means achieving a healthy balance in life.
You could achieve an amazing level of happiness without having any financial wealth. However if you want to live in modern society with a home, car, and other enjoyable items, raise kids and have food on the table you need to make a fair bit of money. This drive for income results in an unhealthy balance in life in my opinion. People spend the majority of their time driving to and from work in rush hour traffic, and spend at least 9 hours 9 (including lunch in you take one) at jobs they don’t like. Then you get home to a ton of errands to do at night and on weekends, or you’re so tired you just veg in front of the TV. No wonder every one is stressed out these days!
Obtaining financial wealth is the best way to get off the treadmill that is causing so much grief these days.
