What to do when you can t make money, 8 Reasons Why You Don't Have Money
Two hundred and fifty million people in the wealthiest country on the planet are barely making it.
Consider that almost 75 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. You are having money issues because you have money issues.
8 Reasons Why You Don't Have Money
Here are a few of them: 1. Living with mommy Most Americans live within 25 miles of their mothers. It is time to move away and go where there is opportunity. Economic illiteracy Most people are economically illiterate. Economy is defined as household management or management of resources.
1. Negotiate your bills.
Manage means to be in charge and succeed in surviving, especially against heavy odds. To manage your own economy means you have to create money by playing offense in the marketplace.
The budget blockhead mindset Spending all of your time trying to budget money is a way to guarantee you never have money. Having a budget blockhead mindset means you are playing defense, not offense.
Almost every economic indicator has worsened. If politicians could save the middle class they would have already.
2. Economic illiteracy
Financial apathy People have become apathetic regarding their finances and quit looking at it. Admit to where you are financially and start paying attention to your money. The entitlement problem is not just for the lower economic level, but hits all the way to the top.
Everyone wants to be the director, CEO, the manager, the writer -- well, guess what? Someone has to do the selling.
Poverty comparisons The idea that your financial situation is better off than someone that is starving does not make your financial situation any better.
Those just getting by try to make sense and justify their financial situations by finding others that are worse off.
Confront where you are, put your attention on income, not saving, be willing to do whatever job for however long to fix your situation and make it your duty, obligation and responsibility to get your financial life in order. But neither of those truths makes it OK for you to not have money to take care of your family and create the life you want.
