I finished a book tonight titled “The money book” by The Catalyst, Lanre Olusola . It contained lots of quotes that got me thinking deeply about rich men and poor men. And I found out how much effort is put in to be rich and to stay rich.
Being wealthy takes a lot of effort and time. It involves a large dose of planning and hard work. If you notice people who are rich, whether in a pure way or impure way, you realize that they put a lot of effort in what they do.
People who work or run corporate firms and businesses work really hard to get higher. Even people who steal work at planning out how to execute the operation so as not to get caught.
So now, it has been truly established that hard work is key to becoming a rich man. We shouldn’t fail to forget that what differentiates the man who stays wealthy and the one who squanders his wealth is the ability to manage money.
Effective management and use of money will bring about more money. That’s where most of us get it all wrong. We don’t spend right, we don’t use our money to work for us, we don’t manage the money.
Money was given to us for our use. It’s to serve us and not the other way around. It is to work for us. There are so many things we need to learn and how better life will be if we take out time and put in effort to learn them one at a time.
Don’t forget to manage and use your money well. It determines if you end out a rich or poor man
Money can develop wings; If you’re trustworthy, knowledgeable, discipline and diligent, it will fly towards you, if not it will fly away from you – The Catalyst, Lanre Olusola
