The Habit of $aving
In his book, The Laws of Success in Sixteen Lessons, best-selling author Napoleon Hill goes into depth on the importance of saving money. He cites the Bible verse Matthew 13:12
“For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that which he hath.”
Powerful stuff! He talks about the fact that saving, like not saving, is solely a matter of habit.
He goes on to stress that, in the beginning it is not the AMOUNT of money we begin to save that is important, but rather the simple act of forming a new habit. And a habit, once formed, is not easily broken. So you start off with a small amount, even a few dollars a month. Anyone can live with that. Then you begin to gradually increase over time. Before you know it, you can have a pretty nice little nest egg!
Just imagine the country we would live in if our leaders would abide by this simple ruling of “saving”. It all starts with us as individuals though, right? Happy $aving!
