Learning the value of money

In the brazen ways of living now, many people fail to accord due value to the worth of money, and to a great extent, money seems to have lost its value for a growing many unlike in the past or the days of old.

In Malaysia, an important reason why money has lost its value for many Malaysians is because of having lost its value in the global marketplace, the Ringgit losing a lot of shine in comparison with other global currencies.

But this should be, in no way, a reason or excuse to throw our arms up in despair and give no respect or attach no value to our Ringgit, in fact the onus of responsibility is on us to work harder to give it as much value as possible.

In decades past, the way to being prosperous was to have a savings account in a bank, and from this enterprising start, by being thrifty and careful with money our forefathers built families, established businesses and educated their children.

This honourable value still holds true till now. There is a need for all of us to cherish and value our hard earned money and painstakingly by starting from scratch to keep on scratching until prosperity and success is achieved.

This is why, though many of us are struggling to get by these days, it is important to adhere to our budget, not overspend, control spending and learn to value whatever money each of us have, no matter how great or small the amount.
