Well.... it is going to be CNY soon.. Done your grocery shopping yet? Bought new clothes? Done spring cleaning yet? I've only done shopping to add clothes to my closet... You can say I'm a shopping queen...but not yet a shopaholic...haha... I think all girls love shopping...
Recently, I read a book on 'Why we want you to be rich' by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump. It is daunting that we are involve in money everyday. But almost 90 % of people do not know how to invest their money or spend their lives working for money, safe money, live below your means and diversify by purchasing mutual funds...
Frankly speaking, how many of us really know about economics and about financial management? Most of us know how to spend or safe money rather than invest our money.
Since I will be working in the society for the next 2 years, it is scary of how little I know about money. I am not being materialistic, rather I am being realistic.
Therefore, it is very important to start now in educating ourselves everything about money. To people out there who always wanted to be rich, wealth is accumulated through time, effort and patience. Wealth do not grow overnight. So, stop being a dreamer and start taking action by investing in your financial education. The more you know, the less is the risk for investing.
I am learning now as well. Bachelor degree is just a ticket for us to thrive in this society. But, how well we wanna survive depends entirely on our extra efforts besides studies. So broaden your horizons, and do what you can when you have the time and energy. Leave no room for regrets and start taking action now.
So,this is my new year resolution-- Enhance my financial education.
It is your choice whether you want to change or continue living with ignorance.
That's all I wanted to say.
Hope this will shed some thoughts in some of you who came across my blog.
