“Money is numbers and numbers never end. If it takes money to be happy, your search for happiness will never end” – Robert Nesta Marley.
It’s sad that many people wrongly believe that the more money they make, the happier they’ll be. Hence, they devote all their lives working hard at a job they don’t like in order to earn a promotion or a raise.
This erroneous belief makes both money and happiness very elusive to them and pushes them deeper into the loop called rat race.
The fact is, even if you get a raise, without the financial literacy on how to use the little money you have to make yourself happy, you will definitely increase your spending to meet up with your previous lifestyle.
The key out of the rat race is not necessarily in living below your means as most Financial Advisors would say.
It is in reducing your liabilities and expanding your means by investing in cash flowing assets.
