(http://www.ftmdaily.com) An Introduction to Jerry Robinson’s Five Levels of Financial Freedom.
In this video, Jerry continues with Level One, Step Four: Begin a Systematic Savings Plan.
Let’s face it: Americans are not the world’s best savers. Apparently, we think we don’t need to worry about having a “rainy day” fund because we assume the sun will always shine. Nothing could be further from the truth. Saving money is a biblical principle that helps insulate us from peril during times of economic uncertainty.
When we talk about saving money, we are really talking about planning. But in order to plan, you have to get serious about your money. You have to take control of what you have, and you must want to save.
But planning to save money is just the first step.
Someone once accurately said, “You can be on the right track, but if you just sit there, you may get run over.” Once you plan to begin saving some money, you are definitely “on the right track.” But if it just remains a plan that never gets put into action, it will never bear fruit.
Once you do begin a savings plan, you will often find distractions along the way. Remember, the road to success is marked with many tempting parking spaces. Something will always come up to compete with your plan to save. This is why I recommend automating your savings plan. This is easily accomplished now with direct deposit and automatic debiting of specified percentages of your paycheck into your savings account.
