Ask anyone and they will tell you that they will be happy if they had more money to spend. The reason why many never succeed in this is that they simply do not have the capacity to build wealth. Most are usually lazy and are not willing to put in the effort while some simply do not know how to do this. Any person who has amassed wealth over time will tell you they planned well and stuck to their plan through thick and thin.
Starts saving when you are still young.
If you start to save early, you will have saved enough compared to a person saving the same amount but at an advanced age. For example if two people decide to start saving a hundred dollars every month. One starts saving when he is twenty five years and the other starts to save when he is thirty two. From common sense, if they both retire at sixty, the one who started saving while he was younger will have more.
Educate your mind.
Knowing the ins and outs of a venture is a must have in any investment. For example, if you are planning to start a business in real estate you must know what real estate is all about. This is where education will come in handy. Read books, attend seminar, ask questions and listen to tapes. This will give you a platform to start from and you will be better placed when making business decisions once you start the business.
Invest on stable companies.
If you are investing in stocks, always go for companies that have a good history. Such companies are usually safer and lower the risk of losing your money. A company that is new and has not shown any past evidence that it can do well should be your last option if you are investing on a long term basis. According to research, most companies fail within their first year of business, if you are placing your bets on such a company then the odds are not good.
In your youth years, try to establish a steady income.
Try as much as possible to get a stable source of income and do this early in life. This can be in the form of some job or a business. This is important in that even with the best of advice; you can only save money if you have the money in the first place. If you do not have some stable income, saving become only but a dream. Do your best to train yourself effectively on the field you intend to pursue.
Generally, wealth creation will arise with the ability to use less than you earn. If what you spend is say twice what you earn, you are living beyond your means and will soon be in a financial quagmire. But if what you earn is twice what you spend, you have some extras which you can use to buy wealth generating assets.
Be faithful in saving.
You will rip not results if you do not stick to your saving plan. This is the hardest part of it all, at times; you might be pressed financially and feels you need to stop. You may also start suffering from complexities that you have amassed enough to live on and you need not save anymore. Draw plans and stick to them, persistence is key if you are to build wealth.
