Thanks to everyone that shared their thoughts. I appreciate the ones that also caution us to not end up worshiping our money, our retirement plans and our possessions. It’s a good reminder that we can’t take it with us when we leave this world. In the meantime, keep these things in mind:
Building wealth is a long term process.
Look for deals, bargains and discounts. If you don’t find one, ask for one. You’d be surprised how many times you’ll get a better deal by simply asking.
1. Save money.
4. Be generous.
8. Have fun with your family and friends. Enjoy your life. Stay Christ focused. Be thankful. Be happy. It’s really people that matter so be sure to love and be generous in life. Pass along your wisdom to others. Enjoy your life and always live life to the max!
