Supporting and empowering people to achieve their dreams by passing on my knowledge and skills is one of the most rewarding aspects of my career.
Of course though, it’s a partnership, and I have observed that people who achieve their goals have either had or learned some essential behaviours that have led them to success. They are:
1) They all spend less than they earn, and saving/investing is an above the line item
The old saying that “it’s not the size that matters, it’s what you do with it” is true with income too. Some of my wealthiest clients have never earned what I would call a large income but have achieved wealth by spending carefully.
Cheryl* for example (Age 58, single income, no kids, client since 1995) has never earned a wage over $58,000 pa (it was $35,000 20 years ago).
