Billionaire still wears the same watch he bought in 1964.
Many times, we are caught up in the moment of trying to get better and better….
It is great to want more, but it is also a limit of being smart….
A fool doesn’t just waste and blow his money cuz he has it.
I remember someone telling me about a conversation they had w someone else, this person had been to my house, and made a comment to this other person, that if I was making what I said I was, wondered why I didn’t upgrade my house.
Funny how people think….(and don’t ask you direct)
i have lots and lots of nice clothes and shoes (that is what I like to spend money on, and TIME things w my kids – we do LOTS of vacations and traveling). I drive a 85k vehicle, that is kinda nice….
My house – I ABSOLUTELY LOVE.Yes, it was made *awhile* ago, It is 2500 sq ft, so plenty what I need esp w the kids older, it is ranch style, which is my preference, and most important – my kids great grandfather built it w his own two hands, I will never ever sell it – even if I chose to move one day, it would stay in the family.
You don’t have to spend the money just cuz you made it – There has been several times in our life that Bryan and I thought we were financially pretty set, then his back surgery that didn’t go well came along w lots of bills and medical debt, and many other things….then we rose again for awhile, then had some other changes….you never know when things will happen…..invest for yourself when things are going good for those times when they won’t.
Also don’t save always and never have fun…..someone also made a comment on how many trips I go on….Yes, I am super super blessed, I get asked to speak at different events all over the world, and most times my flight/gas and my room are paid for – so many times I will take my kids, and we will stay a little extra on our own, and make a vacation out of it too. Then I do take lots of vacations and *breathers* — I work about 100 hours a week when I do work, so rather than take 2-5 hours a night watching tv that does nothing for me or my business, I will work and take extra relaxing time later, with my kids or friends that builds and nourishes my relationships in my life.
In the end – it is your life – your money – pray about it – make wise decisions, do as you wish
This is a neat article
