Financial Planning only for the rich?

I was fortunate to join the financial industry when I graduated. I learn a lot about financial planning and management knowledge and practice some of it. I want to share with you today one rule that I have practised since then, which is to pay yourself first. When you receive an income, pay yourself first. What does this mean? It means paying yourself first as a saving for the future or a sum of money you set aside for a purpose, such as savings, buying a toy, buying something, a holiday, etc. We do have to remember one of the reasons we work is to enjoy life. You will develop such a habit and high discipline as time goes by. Today, I meet a person who save a small of money for years so that he can buy a Microsoft Surface Pro 7 for his wife. It struck me when he hand me a stack of hard cold cash. I told him that I received his payment with a heavy heart. I can feel the sincerity and the high self-discipline over the years that he save enough money to buy this item. I wish him the best
