Why Do People Spend Less Money And Have So Much Fun?

One reason why people have as much money as they do is that they've learned to spend less than they make and save or invest the difference. It doesn't matter how much or how little you make. If you always spend less than your income and invest or save the extra, you'll always be rich.

There are people making $500,000 a year who are just as broke as someone making $20,000 a year. That's because the person making $500,000 a year has bills that equal $500,000 a year and the person making $20,000 a year has bills that equal $20,000 a year. If your bills always equal or exceed your income, you'll always be broke no matter how much you make.

So when I say spend less money, I'm not saying you can't enjoy the good things in life. I'm saying that you must always spend less than you make. We all want nice things - a new car, a large home, better clothes. But true wealth comes from being able to purchase what you desire while making more than you spend.

People who drive around in a new Porsche aren't necessarily rich. They could be in debt and barely scraping by, but they look rich because of the car they drive. Likewise, people who drive an older car aren't necessarily poor. They could be saving and investing their money instead of buying a car that depreciates the second it's driven off the dealer's lot.

Once you start making more money, it's hard not to spend more. If you start making a lot of money but spend more than you make, you could end up right back where you were or even worse.

Grab a hold of a painful memory like the job you dislike, the stress that lack of money causes, or the things you could not provide your family because lack of money, and let that be your conscience on where to put your newfound wealth. Spend less than you make, invest the difference back into savings, don't overleverage, and you will be on your way to life-long financial independence.

The next time you want to buy something, just ask yourself this question: Do I need it or do I want it? Getting to your desired level of success takes a few changes, and living within your means is an important one. You're not going to live conservatively for the rest of your life, just long enough to pursue your long term goal of financial independence. As your income slowly grows, so will your available budget of fun money. And one day you'll look around and realize that you're making more money than you ever thought possible because you're spending less.
