I was rereading, "The Richest Man in Babylon," and I thought it might be a great idea to remind everyone of the "five laws of gold," of which I'll substitute wealth for gold to make it current.
1) Wealth comes gladly and in increasing quantities to any man who will put on tenth of his earnings to create and estate for his future and that of his family.
2) Wealth works diligently and contently for the wise owner who finds it profitable employment, multiplying and compounding for it's owner.
3) Wealth clings to the protection of the cautious owner, who invests it under the advice of those who have the fruit on the tree.
4) Wealth slips away from the man who invests it in business or purposes that he knows little or nothing of, or which are not approved by those skilled in keeping wealth.
5) Wealth flees from the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who follow the advice of tricksters and schemers or would trust it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investment.
Great words to live by!
