Two hallmarks of prosperous people are their commitment to save/invest their money and their generosity with their resources. Prosperity is a mindset.
This is not how I’ve historically behaved: I’m good at saving, mediocre at investing, and poor at giving generously. However, it’s in my power to choose and to change.
To become prosperous, every time I get some money, especially unexpectedly, I now try to make these my first thoughts:
1. How much can I save/invest.
2. How much can I give away.
It doesn’t matter the amounts. Big or small it’s the thought pattern that leads to habits and then actions, that leads to prosperity.
