Financial Freedom

More money is not the answer; more discipline is. Until you decide to live on what you already make, more money will not help.
Larry Burkett

Your plan to get wealth must include a willingness to do what you do best regardless of whether you are in the spotlight or behind the scenes, if you receive adequate compensation or are underpaid.
T.D. Jakes

He who gathers money little by little makes it grow.
Proverbs 13:11

God can release financial increase to those who will not be controlled by the love of money.
T.D. Jakes

As a kid, my dad made us value everything we ever earned. If I wanted a new pair of skates, I had to caddy for weeks to earn the money to buy them. If I needed a new stick, I cleaned out the stalls in our local hockey rink to earn the money to buy it. You never get something for nothing in our house. It made me appreciate everything that was dear to me.
Pat LaFontaine

The Secret to Happiness

Happiness has more to do with what you do with what you have than with what you have.
Dr. Bob Rotella

Happiness is like perfume; you can’t pour it on somebody else without getting a few drops on yourself.
James Van Der Zee

Happiness is a byproduct of something greater, not an end in itself. Happiness cannot be pursued and caught, anymore than one can pursue a sunny day, put it in a bottle, and then bring it out on a rainy day to enjoy. True happiness comes from a different pursuit – the pursuit of God.
Billy Graham

There is no key to happiness. The door is always open.

I believe the recipe for happiness to be just enough money to pay the monthly bills, a little surplus to give you confidence, a little too much work each day, enthusiasm for your work, a substantial share of good health, a couple of real friends and a wife and children to share life’s beauty with you.

The Importance of Thrift

Frugality is a handsome income.
Desiderius Erasmus

By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest.
Agesilaus

Frugality makes a poor man rich.
Seneca

Without frugality few can become rich, and with it few would become poor.
Samuel Johnson

There’s a fine line between being frugal with your money and being a tightwad. What ultimately separates the two is attitude and motivation. Frugal people save money because they think it can be used better in other areas of their budget. Tightwads save money because they’re reluctant to let it go.
Larry Burkett

Dignity and Independence

The only way you can take control of your spending and determine your lifestyle priorities is with a budget.
T.D. Jakes

There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no independence quite so important as living within your means.
Calvin Coolidge

If you live within your income, you’ll be without many things, the most important of which is worry.
William Ayer

One half of knowing what you want is knowing what you must give up before you get it.
Sidney Howard

Use a budget not to inhibit and restrain yourself but to liberate and unleash your passion for something greater than the purchase that is tempting you in that moment.
T.D. Jakes

Wealth

The real measure of our wealth is how much we should be worth if we lost our money.
J.H. Jowlett

Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community.
Andrew Carnegie

Wealth should never be your goal in life. True wealth is of the heart, not of the purse.
Og Mandino

If wealth is to be valued because it gives leisure, clearly it would be a mistake to sacrifice leisure in the struggle for wealth.
Sir John Lubbock

God gives the power to get wealth. So we want to worship not the gift, but the Giver of the gift.
T.D. Jakes
