We often see all these “tips” that financial ‘experts’ throw around, such as “Keep a budget” and “Stop spending money on lattes” But have you ever stopped to think about whether or not their advice makes any sense? Most of it doesn’t – why? Because experts love to tell people what to do…but nobody is actually doing it. Quite possibly not even them! Just because they are good at marketing themselves as experts and talking about money doesn’t mean that they actually do what they advise. How many of us have heard the saying, “Do as I say, not as I do.” Same concept.
The reason people don’t do these things is because even though they have heard it before, they would rather have the coffee. Most people are also really bad at keeping budgets and they will just increase it when they want to spend more money, instead of being strict with themselves. Then they will justify it as a necessary expense and complain about not making enough money.
So stop listening to the so-called ‘experts’ as much, and start questioning everything they say. Not because it might be wrong in general, but because it might be the wrong advice for YOU specifically. It’s your life. Decide for yourself.
Plus, as you will see on this site, YRH members do things differently than the experts and everyone else. We don’t focus on the conventional advice. We focus on the 20% that is going to most efficiently and effectively get us to our results. Average people focus on the 80% that will only get them maybe 20% of the results they were hoping for. If you want to be average then follow the average advice. If not, you’ll have to go against the grain- which is way more fun. That’s why YRH is here!
