Here is the not-so secret of never running out of money that most -if not all- people know but (again) most of them are rarely doing it: spend lesser than what you earned.
You must think or say, “duh!” soon after reading it. But that’s the thing, although you knew it even before reading that, but most likely most of you are not doing it.
Humans are Hunger for Improvements
Human has tendency whenever he is free and has nothing to do, we (human) will start to think about anything from eating, traveling, getting new gadgets, buying new cars, purchasing new watches, acquiring new shirts, anything that we think we can improve or enhance our lives (or belly). I call them “hunger for improvements”. Improving ourselves are good. That’s not bad at all and there’s nothing wrong with it. What’s bad is that, these improvements (most of the time) are not based on necessity but most cases are based on impulse alone, making us, most of the time, to spend more that what we earned. Don’t get me wrong here, even until today I’m still doing the same – I’m still has this hunger for improvements feeling (everybody does have it anyway) -, however now I can control that “hunger for improvements” feeling much better. The method that I used to make myself spending lesser is by keeping myself busy with any sort of activities. Great if from the activities I can generate even more money, if not, at least activities that won’t waste any money, so in the end I won’t running out of money, simply because I am spending lesser by being busy and at the same time making more money from my being busy.
