It really is all about YOU!


Money, how to keep a lot more of what you earn


 

As we know &/or may have painfully realized, most peoples RRSP's, Pensions, Stocks and Bonds, most often, do not provide an acceptable rate of return for themselves or their families.

However, your investments DO pad the pockets of bankers, money managers, stock/investment brokers, lawyers & accountants, more than your money benefits you & it's YOUR money!! 

With your money is invested in the markets, GIC's, RRSP's, RIFF's, Annuities etc, you only have control of your investments three times; when you buy, what you buy and when you sell.

One of the funny things about the stock market is every time someone buys, someone sells, & both think they are astute   William Feather

Asking Wall Street to provide financial education is the same as asking a fox to raise your chickens.  Rich Dad

Saying that financial literacy means diversification is just another example of the fox teaching the chickens. Rich Dad

All investments in the markets must increase in value to increase your net worth & all the gain is of your investment and it is fully taxable. Revenue Canada loves you.....  

Whether or not your investments increase, stay the same or decrease in value, your bankers, money managers or stock /investment brokers ALWAYS make money of your investments.

Isn't it time to consider taking control of your investments yourself? You can make far more money with certain investment stratigies even when the market value does or does not increase.

Inflation IS a SILENT TAX & Governments love it. Consider making a far better return, having total control over your investments & pay less income taxes. That's a Win/Win opportunity everyone can take advantage of.

You have heard the line from your money managers & bankers way too often, "you know these investments are a long term hold & they will bounce back, you are in for the long haul, aren't you?" Trust me, don't panic and sell, you'll loose your shirt!

What they won't tell you .... is, (I, your bankers, stock or investment managers etc) will loose my income when you cash out! Generally, they make 3 1/2% per year off your investment & THEY get paid FIRST, you get whats left over.

Gambling is a sure way of getting nothing for something   Wilson Mizner

Take it upon yourself to figure out how much of your money you have put into each of your investments & how much of today's net value is interest earned or appreciation. Then figure out how soon you can reasonably, be fairly certain they will increase five fold?

Say for example, say you have $100,000 (pre-tax) invested, how long has it been invested and what is it worth today & when will it be worth $500,000 and how much tax will be due when your investment is cashed in? (ie; 42% of $500,000 = $ 210,000 in taxes, leaves you with only $290,000)

Would you be interested in turning your $100,000 of tax paid earnings into $500,000 tax free earnings, have 100% control of your investment, and over a period of 15 to 25 years, with ZERO appreication built into the calculation, have a generous monthly cash flow as well, without selling?

Yes, it seems the rich get richer, while most stay just under broke, WHY?

Approximately 53% of Canadians are two paycheques from bankruptcy (regardless of address or position in life or profession) because most are spending 103%+ of what they earn.

We are living in a society that makes us feel we should have everything RIGHT NOW and if we don't rush out and buy it Right Now, we'll be a loser! This idea of keeping up with others is totally wrong. Let the rats stay in the rat race, get out and you'll prosper at a much faster rate.

Get over thinking that Instant Gratification Takes Too Long!!!    Because, Instant Gratification = BEING BROKE

We do get what we think about, give energy and focus on. What we think about, we attract, GOOD and BAD! You must decide what you're going to think about, for the rest of your life. (Law of Attraction: by Michael Losier)

You recognize that you are 100% responsible for your finances but, it seems that every day, someone has their hand out looking for some of your money, ie; mortgages, car loans, credit card debt, utilitiy bills, shiny stuff and the list goes on and on.

However, do you realize that you and only you, are also totally responsible to create your own wealth, this responsiblility is not your employers, not the governments, not your parents, not your teachers....yours!

Quote from the "Wolf on Wall Street";  The name of the game is to move your clients $ from their pocket to your pocket. #1 rule is no one knows of the stock in going up, down or sideways, or in circles, least of all stock brokers. It’s Fuggaizze, its fairy dust. It doesn't exist, it’s not on the elemental charts. It ain't real. We don't create anything we don't build anything, so if you have a client that bought stock at $8, it goes to $16 & he's all happy & wants to sell take him money and run home. You don't let him do that cause that would make it real. You get another brilliant idea, a special idea, special situation, special stock you re-invest his earnings & then some & they will buy every time because they are addicted & you keep doing this again & again & again, meanwhile, he thinks he getting rich, which he is on paper, we brokers are taking home cold hard cash via commission

 

Three facts that everyone must realize are:

#1. It's alright to be rich, (actually we are obligated to become rich)

# 2. It's alright for "YOU" to be rich

# 3. Even you, can become rich beyond your wildest dreams.

Rules of the universe to becoming rich.

#1. Pay yourself first, everytime you get paid or receive money from any source.

#2. Spend less than you earn.

# 3. Learn to live on less. (from Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: by Harv Ecker)

Very simple rules, but rules the masses never pay attention too and then they wonder why they're always broke!

The next step on your path to becoming rich (doing, giving and having what you want, without any concern about money), I strongly recommend that you buy and READ (numerous times) the following books and then do what the authors say. When you do, you'll be amazed at what you WILL accomplish. Each book listed, is a must read.

A quote by Donald Trump: "Nothing is easy, but who wants nothing?"

A quote by Steve McKnight: "Nothing in your life will change until you change the way you spend your time." In other words, you must educate yourself about time, money, compound interest and wealth.

Another Steve McKnight quote: "You will NOT get full time outcome with part time effort!"

If you don't like where you are at in life, what are you doing to change it?

The best investment you'll ever make, is in youself. It really is "ALL ABOUT YOU & YOUR FUTURE"!

Some of the best tools you'll ever find are below, the rest is up to you. Take action, Do it NOW!

We need banks and lenders BUT, always remember, lenders are not your buddies. All banks and lenders (selling consumer goods etc)  main goal is to sell you as much money for as long as possible at the highest rate. They have no interest in YOUR Financial Future, only THEIRS. Get out of debt  as soon as possible (debt you can't deduct from income). YOUR DEBIT IS THEIR ASSET!!

Read, TAKE ACTION & enjoy your freedom. Yes, you really will amaze yourself! Take ACTION NOW!   Call Norm & get started today.
