3. Save to invest, don't save to save. The only reason
to save money is to invest it. Put your saved money into secured,
sacred (untouchable) accounts. Never use these accounts for anything,
not even an emergency. This will force you to continue to follow step
one (increase income). To this day, at least twice a year, I am broke
because I always invest my surpluses into ventures I cannot access.
Exactly, why we need 4 bank accounts! One bank account dedicated to our investment needs.
You don't spend any money from this account until the day you have retired from your day job and NEED to depend on passive income.
