Money gone

Do you spend all your money the moment it goes into your account? Do you complain that you don’t have enough money, yet don’t know where your money goes? Tracking your expenses may be hard but not being able to afford anything, is harder. Make sure you know how much money you are unnecessarily spending on subscriptions and things you don’t need. That money could go towards paying off your debt.

Bad Money Spending Habits

We all have bad habits spending money on things that we want but don’t need. When you buy something you don’t need, it means you’ve been marketed to. Someone has convinced you to spend your money for your feelings of inadequacy. You are being marketed to all the time, corporations and marketing people understand this and know that people with low self esteem are quite profitable! Don’t let bad money habits put you more in debt.

Luck isn’t Strategy

Some people rely purely on luck to guide their lives, when what they should do is understand that life is a probability game. The best thing for you to do is figure out is how to focus your energy on improving your own probability. Don’t leave probability and fate up to the universe . It’s difficult, but the moment you’re not planning the future for yourself, you will end up getting whatever is crumbs others have throw your way. Life is about control so try to get as much of it as possible. If you can control yourself and your environment, the future may become somewhat more predictable. With some control, you don’t need luck. Successful people don’t believe in luck, they don’t need luck.

Key to Success

Many of us have the habit of taking advice from people who are not successful. For example, the key to wealth is to get a well paying job that pays a good salary. Unfortunately, the harsh truth is that you won’t get rich working for someone else. Probably the best advice is that you need to be able to take responsibility for your situation, even if you feel the game is rigged against you.

It is hard to realize, but their feelings are not your responsibility. Sometimes we choose other people over ourselves because of we fear that person will turn against us. Do you think it is wrong to protect your own feelings?
