Are you good at
handling money? Are you good at money management? Robert J. Hastings
wrote, ďmoney management is basically self-control, for unless one
learns to control himself, he is no more likely to control his money
than he is to discipline his habits, his time or his temper.
Undisciplined money usually spells undisciplined persons.Ē (This is
a quote, I didnít say it and Iím sure there are exceptions.)
These are some strong statements but they need to be said. So how do
we learn self-control with respect to our money? The key is to
obtain a proper attitude. Donít consider yourself in bondage when
managing your money. Look at yourself as FREE when you do manage it
You will have freedom and power to do what you should instead of
what your impulses suggest. You wonít have liabilities and debts
hanging over your head. You wonít have bill collectors calling you
demanding payments. You wonít have the worries associated with debt
when you canít make a payment or met an obligation. And there wonít
be extra month at the end of very paycheck. You will learn to be
content where you are and with what you have.
So donít think of money management as a systematic plan, which you
must be a slave to. Think of money management as an attitude, your
attitude toward how you save, spend and earn your money
Make today the first day on your quest to financial freedom and a
debt free life.
