7 AMAZING tips on how to stop losing money

There is no lie that setting a strict budget, cutting your expenses, and saving more money can help maximize your financial growth, it all pales in comparison to the most important variable – income.

Not everybody is materialistic but I’m sure we can all agree that money is definitely a good thing. There is no lie that setting a strict budget, cutting your expenses, and saving more money can help maximize your financial growth, it all pales in comparison to the most important variable – income.

If you want to stop losing money and put an upper limit on the amount of money you make, then stop these seven following habits:

  • Failing to negotiate: Everything is negotiable. If you are confident in your skills and experience, then you should never be afraid to negotiate. When you get an offer that doesn’t fit you, then you should counter and offer and continue to counter until you both reach a compromise that works. You don’t get what you don’t ask for.

  • Failing to invest in yourself: “You’re your own biggest asset by far,” says Warren Buffet. You could invest in stocks, real estate, or some other material possession, but the best investment you can make is in yourself. Equipping yourself to be better with greater skills, better knowledge and more experience is ultimately of more worth to you than anything else.

  • Tunnel Vision: If you are going to put your money or time in something, you might as well go all the way. On one hand, this is very admirable, but at this same time, it is very much like having all your eggs in one basket, which means it can hurt your chances of making more money in the long term. It is a much better bet to have multiple income streams rather than relying too heavily on just one source.

  • Complacency: After some time on a chosen path, you will most likely start to lose enthusiasm or motivation. You’ll start to become complacent with who you are, what you do, and where your place is in an organization. If you think you are starting to get complacent, make sure you take steps to remedy it because you could lose so much money.

  • Only doing what’s expected: Goals are very crucial for achieving success, but they also have a limiting effect. Setting targets can trick you into achieving just the barest minimum when you can achieve so much more. So try to always strive for more and go beyond the goals and targets you set for yourself.

  • Excessive loyalty: We have all been in the position where we have remained in a situation because of loyalty rather than objective value. Sticking around because you are loyal even if it doesn’t benefit you is a comfortable decision – and it is not a bad one – but sacrificing your goals for loyalty is a disservice to you.

  • Failing to put your money to work: Once you have saved enough money, don’t just let it sit in the bank; make it work for you. Invest in multiple sources of income so you can generate proper passive income for yourself. Your money can make you more money so don’t just leave it lying around.

There is no denying that making money is the first step to accumulating wealth – it does take money to make money. So as soon as you start making money, make sure you start to put your long term financial situation into consideration. Happy hunting! 🙂
