How to Keep it Rich (Original post from BlackEnterprise.com)

Below is an excerpt from the booklet “12-Month Budget.”
In order to define what wealthy or rich means to you, you must spend some time with your thoughts and decide what would really make you happy. Is it a mansion and a yacht, or perhaps a three-bedroom home with a white picket fence? Perhaps it’s a Manhattan condo. Whatever it is, you have to decide upon it and save toward it.
Dream big! Dream very big! What do you want to be when you grow up? (This question applies to all ages.) Maybe you don’t know. Maybe you can’t figure it out because you are so bogged down with the day-to-day stresses of going to school, working or taking care of children. Well let me share a quote that may put things in perspective:
“First I was dying to finish high school and start college. And then I was dying to finish college and start working. And then I was dying to marry and have children. And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough so I could get back to my career. And then I was dying to retire. And now I am dying … and suddenly realize that I forgot to live.” —Author Unknown
Don’t let this be you. Define a goal, find out how much it costs, and enjoy it when you reach it.
