Discover the similarities between the formula for financial success and the recipe for a personally wealthy life. Although both have different concepts of value, the same is true for both.
There is the idea that to live like a millionaire we must have millions of pesos saved in the bank. However, being a millionaire is not the same as living like one of them. The basis of a life of luxury is not money itself, but the quality of life, and this is possible even without a large bank account.
Happiness goes hand in hand with relaxed and self-satisfied moods, and fortunately neither needs proof of payment. I’m not saying it’s about being poor and happy, because those who really know what it’s like to feel hungry know that it is difficult to laugh on an empty stomach.
Yes it is possible to aspire to have quality of life, and that is the same as winning the lottery of destiny. The funny thing is the similarity that exists between the formula for financial success and the recipe for a wealthy life personally; Although both have different concepts of value, the same is true for both.

If you are interested in knowing this formula, dive into these five financial tips so that you have a better quality of life:
1. Don’t live up to the expectations of others
If you spend thinking of pleasing others, you will end up in debt and dissatisfied and if you live to satisfy their desires, exactly the same will happen. Given both, I advise you to take time to think about whether you really need “that” in your life.
2. If it doesn’t give you quality of life, it’s not worth it
This applies to everything: work, personal relationships, commitments. Nothing is worth it if it steals your peace of mind, your time and your desire. No matter what it is: if it doesn’t give you, then it takes you away.
3. Recognize your worth
Both to do a job and to have healthy relationships, it is important that you recognize your value and make it count. Don’t let them take advantage of you on whatever plane it is. If you are worth it, let whoever loves you pay the price.
4. Invest in yourself
The main asset you have in your life is your person. Take care of yourself as one who takes care of the most valuable thing you have, because indeed it is. Your health, your education and your well-being are important, and to reap fruits it will always be necessary to plant trees. You are that tree and what you make of yourself will be the branches and the fruits.
5. Do not allow yourself to feel captive and dependent
The good thing about money is that it removes material concerns, the bad thing is that it only removes material concerns. Do not allow yourself to chain your existence to a purchased happiness, because the day you no longer have to pay for it, you will suffer. And a lot.
Whether you talk about money or lifestyle, if you limit your thoughts, you will be limiting yourself. Think big, live big, bet big and go for it all! Don’t be one of those who are so poor that all they have is money. Learn that it is not about living rich, but enjoying how rich it is to live. That is and will always be the true secret of a life of luxury.
