Studies show: a lot of young people have more debts compared to the other persons older. This probably because in this generation people want more than what they can actually work for. You want a good car so you can cruise to school/job with and flex. But in real life you can’t afford it. So what’s your plan. You consider taking a loan from your bank to buy yourself a car. Don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely no problem in owning a brand new car, it’s actually a great secondary need to own. But think about it. The people in your school/job won’t help you pay off your loans from the bank, will they? Now end month comes, you are paid your salary. You are supposed to pay for your bills, and taxes then keep the rest. But now, you have to pay for your debt plus the general car costs like fuel, car insurance, updating drivers license and car maintenance costs. This money you have used on those unimportant things would more than enough for saving. Having a debt reduces your costs of living. Meaning you have to make paying off your debts a priority, so way more money will be used on paying debts making it difficult for you to save. If you already have debts, maybe with your bank, credit card school debts (loans). All is not over for you. Start paying off your debts from today. Yes I know it’ll slow down you down, but that will be a good move your making. The earlier you start the better. If you have no debts at all. You are doing great, try living a happy life with your money, not a fancy life with other people’s money. Because at the end of the day, you will be living a more fancy life. But this time, using your very own money, Trust me there’s nothing sweeter than that.
Pro TipIf it means working 2 or 3 jobs to get yourself out the debt trap. Please do so
Make like minded people your friends
Now, you have most likely come across the saying that goes show me your friends, I’ll tell you your future. If not then there you go. Thank me later.
You need to value yourself before you can even think of others. Wolves don’t hang out with dogs even though they might look like or behave alike in a lot of things, why? Because though they seem alike, they both have different perspectives and mentality in life, wolves hurt for their meals, dogs wait to be fed. You get it now? If you’re ready this right now, you want to make it in life, so just why the heck would your friends be the people that don’t give a damn about their own future. If you really need friends, get the ones that are on ether same mission as you. Find your tribe and love them hard. Make life goals together, think business together, partner and build ideas together. GROW TOGETHER. who knows you might find your Mr or Miss Right in the midst of them. As they say be a boss, marry a boss. So choose your friends wisely. Furthermore you don’t need a lot of friends. I mean where will they sit when you buy your first Lamborghini. The machine Only has two sits.
Pro TipIf you are lucky enough to get in touch with someone who’s up there where you’d want to be. Make them your mentor. It’ll help you a lot.
