From inside@success.com - 08/04/17 - "33 Money Habits That Separate the Rich From the Poor":

33 Money Habits That Separate the Rich From the Poor

It all starts with the same amount of money—just a different philosophy.
Jim Rohn, January 24, 2016

Here is an exciting thought! Why not work full time on your job and part time on your fortune? And what a feeling you'll have when you can honestly say, "I'm working to become wealthy. I'm not just working to pay my bills." When you have a wealth plan, you'll be so motivated that you'll have a hard time going to bed at night.

So if you will indulge me, I would like to share a simple formula for creating wealth. Here’s my thought on how money should be allocated.

The 70/30 Rule
After you pay your fair share of taxes, learn to live on 70 percent of your after-tax income. These are the necessities and luxuries you spend money on. Then, it’s important to look at how you allocate your remaining 30 percent. Let's allocate it in the following ways:

Charity
Of the 30 percent not spent, one-third should go to charity. Charity is the act of giving back to the community and helping those who need assistance. I believe that contributing 10 percent of your after-tax income is a good amount to strive for.

The act of giving should be taught early, when the amounts are small. It's pretty easy to take a dime out of a dollar. But it's considerably harder to give away a $100,000 out of $1 million. You say, "Oh, if I had $1 million, I'd have no trouble giving $100,000." I'm not so sure. $100,000 is a lot of money. Start early so you'll develop the habit before the big money comes your way.

Capital Investment
With the next 10 percent of your after-tax income, you're going to create wealth. This is money you'll use to buy, fix, manufacture or sell. The key is to engage in commerce, even if only on a part-time basis.

So how do you go about creating wealth? There are lots of ways. Let your imagination roam. Take a close look at those skills you developed at work or through your hobbies; you may be able to convert these into a profitable enterprise.

In addition, you can also learn to buy a product at wholesale and sell it for retail. Or you can purchase a piece of property and improve it. Use this 10 percent to purchase your equipment, products or equity—and get started. There is no telling what genius is inside you waiting to be awakened by the spark of opportunity.

Savings
The last 10 percent should be put in savings. I consider this to be one of the most exciting parts of your wealth plan because it can offer you peace of mind by preparing you for the “winters" of life. Let me give you the definition of "rich" and "poor”: Poor people spend their money and save what's left. Rich people save their money and spend what's left.

Twenty years ago, two people each earned a $1,000 a month and they each earned the same increases over the years. One had the philosophy of spending money and saving what's left; the other had the philosophy of saving first and spending what's left. Today, if you knew both, you'd call one poor and the other wealthy.

So, remember that giving, investing and saving, like any form of discipline, has a subtle effect. At the end of the day, the week, the month, the results are hardly noticeable. But let five years lapse and the differences become pronounced. At the end of 10 years, the differences are dramatic.

And it all starts with the same amount of money—just a different philosophy.


“I think there's nothing better than laughing in life, so that's nice, to be thought of as someone who can make someone laugh. It's 'cause I think life is hard. You know, my dad was a really silly man. A great Irish silly man. And that's fine.

- Joan Cusack

11 Oct 1962)



 
BONUS CARIBBEAN BLUE CROCHET PATTERN:

http://www.handmadebyannepotter.com/tobago-belt-crochet-pattern/ - Anne Potter's Tobago Belt - "A wonderfully cool accessory, this uber-hip belt gives crochet a new swagger. A bright Caribbean blue yarn and traditional square motifs get along perfectly in this fashion-brilliant belt. I love how the classic Granny square has such attitude seen on this bandolier-inspired hip belt – so cool! While you could make this belt using any small square motif, I’m including directions for the classic double crochet motif shown. This belt is a great on-the-go project thanks to the motif’s small size and simple pattern. Scour thrift shops (or etsy.com and ebay) for the perfect vintage belt buckle or grab a new one in the notions department of the fabric store. Who knew crochet could be so hip?"


BONUS BLUE FISH RECIPE:

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/super-summer-grilled-bluefish/ - Super Summer Grilled Bluefish - "Have a ton of bluefish and don't know what to do with it? Give this a try! Bluefish has a reputation for being a very strong fish. This super citrus marinade gives this grilled fish a bright and delicious flavor. I just made some (which I caught and froze) and it came out superb."

Caribbean Blue

Enya, 1991
(b. 17 May 1961)


...Eurus...
...Afer Ventus...
...so the world goes round and round
With all you ever knew --
They say the sky high above
Is Caribbean blue...

...if every man says all he can,
If every man is true,
Do I believe the sky above
Is Caribbean blue...

...Boreas...
...Zephryus...

...if all you told was turned to gold
If all you dreamed was new,
Imagine sky high above
In Caribbean blue...

...Eurus...
Afer Ventus...
...Boreas
Zephryus...
...Africus...
