Teach Children The Five Laws of Wealth


As a parent or mentor, one of the most important things you can do for a young person is to teach them the Laws of Wealth. These five simple laws will not only change their lives, but the lives of generations to come.

  1. The Law of Expectation – Teach a young person that regardless of their present condition to always believe that great wealth is their destiny. If you expect great wealth and take intelligent action, it will become your reality. There is no room for doubt. If you expect pennies and financial struggle that is surely what your life will deliver to you. You reap what you mentally sow.
  2. The Law of Leverage – Don’t work for money, make money work for you! Beyond giving a child an allowance for doing household chores, Reward and encourage entrepreneurial thoughts and ventures. Teach them to organize the activities of others and create products and services that they are able to sell in mass. By keeping their expenses low and generating income from assets and businesses, they will achieve financial freedom decades before their peers.
  3. The Law of Allotment – Save, invest and avoid consumer debt at all cost. Always invest before your spend and save for emergencies. Build up a cash reserve to handle urgent situations and large purchases, and invest at least 15% of all you earn. Only borrow if it will make you more money. Your return on investment should always outweigh the interest rate charged on the loan.

Working alone will always limit your income, as there is only so much you can accomplish as one individual.
