So what does a quote from football have to do with savings and investment, you ask? A lot. A lot of which is, in fact, particularly relevant now.
Speaking of a lot, the quote says a lot about human behaviour. Truth be told, it’s worth paying close attention to because it gives you something that is most valuable to succeed in life during good times and bad: Perspective. And perspective is one of the things you definitely need to retain to continually turn your savings into wealth.
For starters, don’t fall prey, easily, to the ease of shopping online or getting high on the easy pleasures of shopping, shopping and more shopping. For if you do, before you know it, you will have spent a small fortune rather easily, and foolishly.
Yes, times are good. And shopping is such fun. And living well is addictive. But it’s also good to remember that good times (much like bad times) don’t last forever. That’s why you need to live well, but within your means, at all times.
Put simply, by living well and within your means at all times good and bad, you are investing in the future without locking any money anywhere for real. It’s almost like magic.
Simply living wisely is an active act of saving and saving is an act of investing for the future and that is a natural and creative way to create wealth by Savinvesting.
And for those who want more on how to create more wealth from more or less, here are many more creative ways to create wealth without doing much.
