I have seen this before as it has been floating around the internet for years, some financial advisers even use it when they are discussing and establishing Savings accounts for their clients. It is a philosophy about your psyche – savings is just like going to the gym – to make you feel better and how you project yourself to the world. Enjoy - Rich
Saving for Greatness
Savings, believe it or not, can affect the way you stand, the way you walk, the tone of your voice – in short, your physical well-being and self-confidence. A Person without savings is always running. They must. They must take the first job offered, or nearly so. They sit nervously on life’s chairs because any small emergency throws them into the hands of others.
Without savings, a person must be too grateful. Gratitude is a fine thing in its place. But a constant state of gratitude is a horrible place in which to live. A person with savings can walk tall. May appraise opportunities in a relaxed way, have time for judicious estimates and not be rushed by economic necessity.
A Person with savings can afford to resign from their job if their principles so dictate — and for this reason they will never need to do so. A person who can afford to quit is much more useful to their company and therefore more readily promoted. They can afford to give their company the benefit of their most candid judgments.
A Person with savings can afford the wonderful privilege of being generous in family or neighborhood emergencies. They can take the level stare of any person … friend, stranger or enemy. That ability shapes their personality and character.
The ability to save has nothing to do with the size of income. Many high-income people spend it all. They are on a treadmill, darting through life like minnows
The dean of American bankers, J.P. Morgan, once advised a young broker: “Take waste out of your spending; you’ll drive the haste out of your life.”
If you do not need money for college, a home or retirement, then save for self-confidence. The state of your savings does have a lot to do with how tall you walk.
