In the simplified version of "becoming wealthy" there are really only two rules along the road.
1. Make more money
2. Live on less
Now the live on less idea is more appealing to me because the benefits are seen much sooner than when one aims to make more money. And the other appeal is that the money saved living on less is not taxed, where as the extra money I make is taxed to the tune of 20% or more.
To take the money that we bring home, no matter if it is 12,000 a year or 1.2 million a year, and making that money stretch further would mean more to me than all the classes I could study. Because I have stretched the dollars that I did bring home by living on less expenses I have given those dollars more value. Below are ways to add value to the dollar.
The natural affect that the above methods of living on less is the abundance of patience and willpower that grows. Sometimes living on less is just saying "No." or pushing it off for later. Eventually these methods add up and you find yourself flourishing and living well with less and for less.
