It is all about how you live your lifestyle. No one needs to be poor. It is all about how you spend your money.
Many people waste their money and then cry – I am poor, or I have no money – as they admire the very expensive item they just purchased or drinking down excessive or expensive food and drinks.
If you are smart you can budget and live within your means. I have a lot of people around me who constantly moan about how they have no money. I have one friend – a woman – who constantly declares she cannot live on what she earns and yet can afford to have her nails and hair done constantly and is always in new clothes – let alone eating out all the time.
I live sensibly and within my means. I don’t spend if I cannot afford something and always watch what I buy with regard to food. I consider myself average and I know of people who earn way more and yet cannot manage their money.
I know there are a lot of excuses but to me they are lame. If you are on a fixed income, then live within your means. And when things are good then treat yourself to a night out or fashion shop. In the meantime, live sensibly.
You are – how you spend.
