Building Marital Finances

Building Marital Finances-Saving money and investing it is not a sprint, it is a marathon. If you want your family to be in peace tomorrow, develop a marathon mentality for investment today.Building Marital Finances

1. Go at Your Own Speed: You may not be the number one, but you are not likely going to be

the last, some will definitely pull out along the way. Do not buy what others are buying

because they are buying it and never buy to impress because the people you want to impress

are not really impressed.Building Marital Finances

2. Avoid Glamour and Glory: Spending money is like a sprint, it brings you premature

glamour and glory. It makes you to be noticed, but if you must build a wealthy family, you

must avoid this. Using big car may bring you a glamour, wearing the best clothes may give

you glory, but always remember that it is for a moment. People that hailed you for your new

car now will not hail you when they see it the second time.Building Marital Finances

3. Discipline Yourself: One thing a marathon runner needs more than anything else is

discipline, when preparing for a marathon race; you are expected to run in the toughest path,

climb difficult mountains, run faster than expected. Wake up when others are still sleeping,

refuse to eat like them. Shed excessive weight or have you ever seen a fat marathon world

champion? No way. Discipline is the mother of distinction.

4. Run through Pain: Marathon involves pain, it involves suffering, someone once told me

that "pain lasts but for a moment", while glory is for a life time! This is perfectly true. In one

Olympic game, a Tanzanian representative fell and badly injured himself, he got up and continued the race in an obvious pain while other runners passed by, but he refused to stop,he finished the race way behind, but he finished. When he was interviewed after the race, he said "My country sent me here to finish the race. I was not sent here to start it alone" funny enough, he was interview just as they did to the winner, he did not win the race but he won the mind. Saving and investing money involves pains, but always end in gains, if you fail to stop, you can not fail to make it.Building Marital Finances

5. You need gut and graft: You need gut, you need determination, you need to close your

eyes to present accolade and look up to the future ovation, move forward at a time and win

the race for your family.Building Marital Finances
