Ten Financial Principles

Inspired by a friend's post, I'd like to add my two-cents from a seminar I attended sponsored by "The Village."

1. Financial problems are usually behavior problems rather than money problems.

2. If you continue doing what you have been doing, you will continue getting what you have been getting.

3. Nothing (no-thing) is worth the relationship.

4. If your money is going toward something you value, then you will usually feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. But if your money is going toward something you do not value, then you will usually experience a sense of frustration and futility.

5. We know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

6. You can never get enough of what you don't need, because what you don't need can never satisfy you.

7. Financial freedom is more often the result of decreased spending than increased income.

8. Be grateful for what you have.

9. The best things in life are free.

10. The value of an individual should never be equated with an individual's net worth.
