The problem is you can always spend money faster than you can earn it. We see many people with high incomes but they also have high expenses and the money flows in and then just flows right back out.
Regardless of how much your income may grow it will never be enough if you do not have a budget. A budget is a spending plan and a savings plan that has been prioritized and established with some structure to help manage your money.
The word “budget” is generally a word people don’t like but a budget properly used is what will bring you real financial peace!
A classic and timeless book on personal finance is The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason. In the book he makes the following statement:
“That what each of us calls our ‘necessary expenses’ will always grow to equal our incomes unless we protest to the contrary.”
A budget is the tool that makes it easy for you to “protest to the contrary”! If you have no budget your money will always find a way to leave you and your situation will only grow worse over time. But with a budget and a good plan your situation will grow better and financial peace can be realized.
