Over Spending And Not Investing 

The future we seek is unknown hence there is the need to put in place measures or contingencies to guard against any eventuality. Majority of the youth out there desperately want to be rich now so they can have a “comfortable life”. However to stay rich, you need to start investing now. Not tomorrow, not in a month’s time or 5 years time. Start now!

We all know people who were once “rich” or were living a lavish lifestyle but are now broke. Money is a circulating asset hence it moves from person to person. The fact that you have money on you today does not mean it’s going to be there forever. In your 20s, there is this temptation to believe that there is more time ahead of you hence will procrastinate or either ignore the concept of investing now. Such persons spend unnecessarily without investing. Reason being that they believe money will come their way again and then the cycle continues.
