Pay Yourself Second, You Will Come Out Ahead

Everywhere you go there seems to be a line whether you are buying your coffee or tea, getting through airport security, waiting for a table at a restaurant, there is always a line.

 

It may not be as visible, but your money has a line forming for it also. Who is always first in line for it? Why, your favorite uncle, Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam demands to get paid and does what he can to stay #1 in line for his portion. Taxes always come out first in a financial transaction. Uncle Sam demands immediate compensation from a deal. But who is second in line for your money?

 

It depends. For many it is the merchant like the grocery or retail store. For some it is the account that you have agreed to pay second like a settlement, alimony, or a collection payout. I want you to reconsider who should be second in line and if this person is not already there, I want you to put them second in line.

 

I want you to place yourself second in line, after that demanding Uncle.  I want you to be as adamant about being second as Uncle Sam is about being first in line.  And be as adamant about that as Uncle Sam is about being first. I want you to take your position seriously and responsibly by having a plan and manifesting that plan so the money you have for yourself builds and supports the life you want.

 

Think of the 5 S.I.D.E.S. of Money© and determine how you are going to allocate the money you will have by paying yourself second to Saving, Investing, Donating, Earning, and Spending. When the money comes you then are ready to allocate it as you planned to those five S.I.D.E.S. of your financial life.

 

Be fanatical about putting money into those 5 S.I.D.E.S every time you have money pass through your hands-without exception and you will become a steward of your own money. You will come out ahead.
