How well are your attitudes and information about money serving you today? Contrast how you think of money today, to how your parents thought of money, and how your siblings and your children (if you have any) think of money. Money plays a significant motivational role in our lives. Money can offer a sense of security when we feel our finances are in order, and a sense of foreboding if we feel they are not.
The fact is that money is the first requirement for a successful retirement; without some level of financial support your retirement lifestyle will lack any real style at all. That’s probably not what you have in mind for yourself and your loved ones. This of course is why we need to dedicate considerable time, energy, effort, and a portion of our income for most of our life preparing for this time of life called retirement.
