Many people seek to improve their financial status but it’s quite unfortunate that many never seek for the knowledge to do so. They are like the man who is so concerned about where he is going to and how fast he can get there that he neglected to check his petrol gauge and car conditions, when the car eventually breaks down at the middle of the road, he asks “how come?”
I’ve always looked at those businesses and ventures that promises to set you on the path to financial freedom with skepticism. Reasons being that no one has the ability to set the other on the path of financial freedom without the other being financially enlightened. It is this enlightenment that brings about freedom!
Day after day, individuals are forced to assume greater financial responsibility which shows itself in several forms in an increasingly complex world. You therefore need to be capable of making sound financial decisions; otherwise you risk adding to the already large percentage of financially illiterate people who in turn greatly makes up the percentage of the poor masses!
To be financially enlightened, you must first seek to know. It is the hunger for knowledge that brings about knowledge at the end. Build up the desire by having a mind that is set to know happenings in the financial world.
Furthermore, you don’t just keep the developed hunger to know, you must also reach out for financial literatures and listen to business news, the internet is of cos your friend in this present times when information are littered all over the world wide web. Subscribe to financial newsletters like Investment Watch, to get regular updates to your mail.
One part people often miss is the action part. Let me add, you must be financially involved. An unused knowledge is as awful as ignorance! Step out, trade and invest, no matter how little it may seem, it is better than sitting idly by, watching people make it big in the financial world.
