Dangers Of Role-Playing The Rich Life Without Financial Peace : The Saturday Weekend Review #213

WHEN THE CURTAINS CLOSE WHO WILL BE THERE TO SAVE YOU?   I’ve learned that there is no in-between for people when it comes to financial success and what one would consider money failure. Many people either consider themselves rich or poor and that’s what they base financial success on rather than being comfortable in the middle. I’m not going to get into a spiel (shocking I know) about how to save money or get out of debt because I’m sure by now you should know how-stop spending money. Instead I want to focus on financial peace and what it means to you. Have you ever thought about what would bring you financial peace in your life instead of stress? If yes, how are you working towards attaining financial peace? If no, stop trying to figure it all out or pretending you’re someone you’re not for the sake of playing the lead role in a movie about your life that doesn’t exist.

Why is it so hard for someone to say, ‘I’m broke‘ or “I just don’t have […]

Achieve Financial Success By Leaving Money Sins Behind : The Saturday Weekend Review #208

THE EASIEST WAY TO CLIMB UP IS TO START CLIMBING WITHOUT FEAR.   Are you a good person who fell off the financial train but want to finish what you started before being side-tracked? No one sets out wanting to create debt that could carry them into retirement if not paid back in a timely fashion. Many retire today with debt because they simply couldn’t keep up with expenses vs. income or they were spending too much money and didn’t adjust their lifestyle accordingly. It’s far easier to create the life that we want even if that means with money we don’t have rather than putting the wheels into motion so it becomes reality.

She smirked a bit and said yes she is still living with her but planning to move into an apartment by the end of May. That’s great news to which she replied, “She’s come a long way and now that her financial situation has improved.” I’m known as the go-to guy when someone has […]

Are you happy with your current financial success? : September Net Worth Update 2015 (+0.67%)

PICTURE YOUR FINANCIAL FREEDOM   When I was younger I asked myself one important question, “How can I be successful in life?” I’m not just talking about financial success but I mean deep down happiness with all that I’ve achieved and how far I’m willing to take myself to grab what I want from life. Most people who are forward-thinkers like myself start planning their future early to build their financial success although it’s never an easy success unless you get lucky. I bought my first house at 21 years old so I was thinking about my financial success from a very young age. My parents owned a couple of successful businesses and invested in real estate so I was brought up in a world where customer service, networking and hard work were a part of my daily life. It was no easy path by any means although my parents did very well for themselves financially so I wanted to do the same. These days you’ll catch them vacationing most weeks of the year and enjoying their retired life without financial worry. My wife on the other hand was frugal when we met and financial success to her meant having […]
