Keep life simple

We really find it hard to save money as much as we can. I consider it as the most daring kind of activity that requires too much energy and mental strength. Thus, living within our means, or most people say: leave below one’s means, so as to be sure.

May I insert the perspective of being a disciplined person–in all areas of your life. From the shoes you choose to go to work or the nail polish you wear everyday. Many of successful people wear the same shirt or they already plan what to wear for the whole week–they’re that organized.

I also want to emphasize spirituality. If you honor god first, and put yourself first, being taken care of, you bring yourself in the world with such simplicity and service to many.
