Money is one form of power but what is more powerful is financial education!

Money comes and goes but if you have the education about how money works you gain power over it and can begin building wealth.
The reason why positive thinking alone does not work is because most people went to school and never learn how money works, so they spend most of their lives working for money. It’s fear that makes people keep working at their jobs. The fear of not paying the bills, the fear of being fired, the fear of not having enough money and the fear of starting over, that’s the price of studying a professional trade to working for money.
Most people become a slave to money and then get angry to their boss. Learning how to make money work for you is a life time study simply because the more we find out, the more we find out we need to know. Many people think that more money will solve the problem, few realizes that it is their lack of financial education that is the problem. Most people have a price, and they’ve a price because of human emotions named fear and greed. First the fear of being without enough money motivates us to work hard, and then once we get that paycheck, greed or desire starts us thinking about all the wonderful things money can buy, the pattern stands set. The pattern of get up go to work pay bills, get up go to work pay bills, there lives are then run forever by two emotions, fear and greed. Offer them more money and they can continue to cycle by also increasing the spending.
We will always have emotions of fear and greed, from here on in use your emotions to your advantage and for the long term, and not simply let them run you by controlling your thinking. Most people use fear and greed against themselves, that’s the start of ignorance, not really questioning themselves where those emotion driven throughs are leading them.
To be successful financially, you need to be financially literate. Most importantly you need to know the difference between an asset and a liability, and buy assets. This is the only rule, most people struggle financially because they do not know the difference between an asset and a liability. Successful people acquire assets, those who struggle financially acquire liabilities but they think they are assets. An asset is something that puts money in my pocket, and a liability is something that takes money out of my pocket.
