If you want to prosper, you have to work at it.
I don’t want to be a dream-killer, but the odds are not in your favor of winning the lottery. And a relative isn’t likely to leave you an inheritance that will allow you to tell your boss to take this job and shove it.
And yet, you still can be rich. How, you may ask?
If you want financial peace and freedom, you have to understand your financial limitations. You have to be disciplined and discerning. You have to make better decisions. If you want to be rich, you have to alter the way you think about your finances.
And in case you’re wondering, when I use the word rich I’m talking about more than just material wealth. I’m talking about the peace that comes when you’ve done all you can to wisely use the financial resources you have.
