Pay Yourself And Build Your Wealth

Jul 5, 2008
In order to build your wealth, you will need to learn to pay yourself. In fact, you need to pay yourself once you get your check every month. If you cannot really do so, you will find it very difficult for you to build your wealth.

As a matter of fact, there are a lot of people who will spend all their income. I personally also know a lot of people who live in this way. However, you must realize that this kind of lifestyle is not healthy. If you keep living in this way, you will have no money when you retire. Do you think you will be still working when you are at the age of 80? If you do not want to work till you are really very old, you should try to plan for your future.

Of course you will need to plan for your future in various aspects. However, we will concentrate on the financial aspect. To this end you need to learn to build your wealth. When we talk about paying yourself, you will probably think about saving some money in your saving account. However, the fact is that saving money is not enough. You have to learn to invest. You have to invest in a way that you can use the money you have saved to generate some income. It can become a large amount of money if you can invest smartly every month.

Yet it may require you to spend a lot of time if you need to make every investment decision yourself. At the end of the day your professional is not in the field of investment. As a result, you may need to rely on some professionals to help you to make the decisions. You can invest on some mutual fund. The fund manager will actually invest. Of course you will need to pay some fee but it should be worth paying since the fund manager should be able to make the most professional decisions.

In some cases you will be able to invest on funds which can give you an earning of 20%. However, the risk can be quite high if you invest on such funds. On the contrary, you may consider investing on some less risky fund which can help you to have an interest of 8% to 10%. This can add up to a lot of money if you can keep investing every month for 30 to 40 years.
