You Have to Have Money to Make Money

8 December, 2014

It is a long outstanding myth that you “Have to have money to make money”. Unfortunately, or fortunately rather, this simply is not true. Perhaps we are just flushing our hard earned money down the drain.

All you really need to make money is an income. The truth is, your income is your greatest wealth building tool. However, we have been conditioned to hand our paycheck to others in the form of buying things we don’t need, to impress people we don’t even know.

We have to have the latest smart phone, whether you are an Apple or a PC. It is no longer acceptable to own a car that is more than 5 years old. We have a standard of living that demands we have the same size house our parents do, only nicer and newer. We have to look good and have elaborate vacation stories to tell.

Before I go any further, let me share Dave Ramsey’s sentiment with you. “I want you to have nice things. I just don’t want them to have you”.

When you send your paycheck to your cellphone carrier, car lender, mortgage lender and credit card companies – not to mention the necessities of utilities, food, and insurance, you find yourself living paycheck to paycheck and have no room to save money, let alone invest.

You have to live within your means and leave room in your paycheck to put money aside for you. If you truly want to have money, put your paycheck to work for you, not lenders. Don’t complain that you don’t have money. Be honest with yourself and realize you are simply giving it away.

Have a plan and discipline yourself to carry it out and you will have money.
