Inspiration From Youtube

As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, your thoughts become you deeds.  Thus, if you control your thoughts, you end up controlling your deeds.  That’s called self-control and it’s essential if you want to reduce your spending and thus be able to increase your saving.  One way to control your thoughts is by listening, reading, and watching media on the subject of personal finance.  You can find podcasts and radio shows, books, and (of course) videos.  Here’s an example.

Maybe not everything mentioned in this video is applicable to your situation.  Okay.  So find another video.  You know how to work the internet don’t you?  Then you can find books at the library or among the used books at your local thrift shop.

Finally, I’ll mention that as you get lots of personal finance advice from a variety of sources, some of what you’ll hear or read might be not only not applicable to your situation … it might also be downright incorrect or untrue.  But that’s okay.  If something isn’t true, remember that free advice is sometimes worth what you pay for it.  And it isn’t just the actual factual content that you’re looking for.  It’s also the inspiration that comes from seeing and hearing someone else talk about doing what you want to do.  Just knowing that other people have done it should show you that you can do it too.  That’s one reason why The Richest Man in Babylon is still one of the best books about personal finance, despite the fact that it’s almost 100 years old.  So get inspired and save money!
