We have come to an age where there are too many things demanding for our attention and the little resources at our disposal. An average African man wants to show to the world that he has arrived.
God’s word says “There is much treasure in the dwelling of the righteous but a foolish man spends it all”. It is foolish to finish everything you earn without saving or investing any.
It is not a sin to be broke if you are an investor, it will only be a temporary state.
It is in our nature to sometimes want to buy things we don’t need but this has to stop after reading this book.
In building your financial future, anything that is not of appreciable value should be secondary. Just before you pay for anything, ask yourself what is the purpose and benefit you will derive from it.
Let me also recommend drawing up a budget for your salary or any form of income as the case may be. Always have a guide for your income before it arrives. It’s not difficult. Make a list of all you want to
spend on in their order of importance. Pick on the most important ones with respect to your capacity and go for them per time. I will touch on this later.
Remember, if it is not going to appreciate in value, it must be secondary. There are things you don’t need now, don’t bother yourself about them. There are places you don’t need to visit now, if it won’t
help in the process of building your financial fortune. Do not allow anyone oppress or suppress you with what they show you. Live your life according to your capacity per time, Buy only what you need per time.
Live in the size of accommodation you can afford per time. You will never receive a certificate or award for being the best tenant. Do not spend your entire salary or income on accommodation, the experts’
advice is 20% so you won’t have to be under any undue pressure.
