By George Clason
In his book ‘The richest man in Babylon’ George Clason offers seven steps or cures to ensure a wealthier life. I recommend that you read the book.
Step 1: Start Thy Purse to Fattening
For each ten coins you earn, spend only nine
Step 2: Control Thy Expenditures
Budget your expenses that you may have coins to pay for your necessities, pay for your enjoyments and gratify your worthwhile desires without spending more than nine-tenths of your earnings.
Step 3: Make Thy Gold Multiply
Put each coin to labor so that it may reproduce its kind.
Step 4: Guard Thy Treasures from Loss
Guard your treasures from loss by investing only where the principal is safe, where it
may be reclaimed if you desire so, and where you will not fail to collect a fair rental.
Step 5: Make of Thy Dwelling a Profitable Investment
Own your own home.
Step 6: Insure a Future Income
Provide in advance for the needs of your growing age and the needs of your family.
Step 7: Increase Thy Ability to Earn
Cultivate your own powers, study and become wiser, become more skillful, and respect yourself.
