#1 Erase the concept of saving. Putting your savings in the bank gets you somewhere but it can’t get you far enough. Instead of saving your money in the bank and letting it sleep stagnantly, start learning about investing and business, find your investment of 50% and above interest in year and invest all your money there. Put in mind that if you put money in the bank, they really love you the most. Money +Bank= More money for Lending or More money for Stocks, in short you are the loser.
#2 Assign a set Structure. Have you heard about the “6 money jars”? 10% Business and Investments, 10% Long term Savings for Spending, 10% for Business, Investing , Success, Leadership and Personal Development Books/Workshops/ Seminars/Training, 50% for Necessities, 10% for your doodads and 10%`for giving without expecting anything back at all. Use this or Modify your own.
#3 Do it every day. Do the money jars every day, even if it would take a single peso a day. The habit is more important the amount. Amount of Money Manage=Short term, Habits you learn from Managing Money=Long Term
#4 Spend only Once or every Four months. These are the things that you spend for but are not really useful at all like vacations, movies, spas, video games, facial, massages etc. Unless you start practicing once a month or quarterly spending, you will always end up poor a few days after you receive your salary. This is in form of the 10% Play account.
#5 Give. It’s easier to give money than keep it. If you were earning money and you are earning around P1M every month flowing in your bank account or P12M, which is easier for you to do, manage the whole P12M or give a part of it away to make managing money easier?
