Before we get started, let’s get a few money truths straight ..…
1 – Money doesn’t grow on trees
Sadly money doesn’t grow on tress, falling like leaves in autumn. However, saving, even a little, looking after it and nurturing it as you would water a seed, can help it to grow and grow. Like an acorn growing into a giant oak tree, look after your money and while it might not grow ‘on’ trees, it might grow like a tree. Moneyready can help to plant the seeds of a fruitful financial future.
2 – Money can’t buy you love or happiness
Love is not something that can be bought for cash and is no guarantee of happiness. More money rarely makes people happier. However, not having enough money to meet basic needs can be very stressful, and cause great financial hardship. Money may not buy you love, but it can provide you with security, freedom and peace of mind. Money is a means to an end, and the real key to happiness is a positive relationship with money which enables you to get the most from life.
3 – The best things in life are free
Of course, essential needs like food, clothes and shelter are not free. However, the things that can bring real meaning and joy to our lives often are. A walk in the park, paddling on the beach, a beautiful sunset, watching animals in the wild, laughter, friendship and love. You don’t need to be a millionaire to be truly rich in life.
