In London you’ll find many people working overtime just to get by and maybe save a little for a rainy day. Mainly save face when they are to meet relatives and friends from where it is they are coming from. Because they have no life, no progress and actually do not learn the language like they claim they do. You know why? Because they have no time to learn english or the money nor the moneyh to pay for classes.
This doesn’t happen only in London. It happens in every major city around the globe where people relocate to in order to have a better life and to make something of themselves. The reason people do not understand what is happening to them is because they either work too much because can’t make ends meet or because they are drown by the ‘noise’ and don’t bother to think for themselves.
Today do yourself a favour and take at least this one decision (if you have not already done so long time ago!). I’m talking about the decision to understand that the little money you make actually have a lot of value. It’s up to you to get out of debt and to save for financial independence. It is possible, very possible, no matter how much the ‘noise’ out there tries to pursuade you of the opposite.
If your current salary isn’t enough, then search for a second job or more hours at your current one. Make use of what time you have today. You might have to work two jobs for some time in order to get out of debt or to finally put aside the money you want. This time length may vary, from just a month to a few years but only you know what applies to you, what your personal circumstances are and what you need to do about it.
If you start saving your money today, you’ll have the amount you need by the time you are ready to pursue the plan you haven’t devised just yet.
To devise that plan you need to make time for yourself. This is the second decision in order to save money. Right now I understand you need to work to make money. Work overtime for the time being to aquire some savings and start to make time by avoiding social media and watching tv. Then move on to a better paid job if possible. If that isn’t possible find ways to cut down your expenses. If that’s difficult keep in mind that you don’t actually need money to have a good time.
A walk in the park, a movie night in with friends, boardgames Saturday evenings and get togethers at friendly houses. Borrow books from the library. Start saving today.
Life is amazing, I promise!
