The king of Babylon wanted his nation to be wealthier, he needed more people to be wealthy, but they did not know how to acquire wealth.
So he sought out the richest man in Babylon Arkad, to teach the people how to acquire wealth.
It was not a mystical teaching, it was practical, and any man could learn to be wealthy.
So the King gathered 100 men for Arkad to teach the Seven Remedies for a lean purse.
The first remedy.
Start the purse fattening.
For every ten coins, leave one within your purse, as it grows over time you will feel better.
If you spend only nine-tenths of your earnings you will not starve, and money will come to you more frequently.
The more you keep the more you will be able to spend actually.
If you keep an empty purse coins will avoid you.
What do you want? Food, clothes, a drink. Or. Land, Wealth, investments.
The money you spend will get you the first, the money you keep will get you the latter.
Control your expenditures
Understand the difference between desire and necessary.
As your income increases, so do your desires.
You have to actively think contrary to that idea.
without recognizing it you will always have more desires than your earnings.
What expenses can you reduce or eliminate? Do that.
Know that to get to where you truly want to get to, desires will have to be eliminated.
Budget your expenses
Make your money multiply
Money saved will not bring you complete satisfaction
saving is just a start, what we do with what we save will bring us a fortune
its not about the amount of money you have in your account, its the flow of money, its the streams of income
investing in people with talent,
it is not everything to just save money, we must make smart investments with our savings, make our money work for us.
the possibilities are endless
protect your assets by being patient and investigative
do not be thirsty to get rich
check peoples reputation and their ability to come through on the otherside
dont give your money away freely, without research, without knowledge, without counsel.
buy a comfortable house with space
raise your family in an open environment
dont cramp your family in a small space
space allows us to grow
small living quarters will ultimately limit us and frustrate us
insure a future income
prepare for old age
prepare for your family after your no longer there
keep the future in your mind
insurance, wealth, bonds
keep the future in mind
increase your ability to earn
after accomplishments come desires
this is a process
we dont just get one sum of money and be done
it is a continual process
of learning getting better
expanding and focusing
taking it one step at a time
this is not about doing a bunch of things and overwhelming yourself
understanding that there is abundance for all
but we must be persistent with the application
its not magic
the truth is simple
the truth is not abstract
