PT Barnum Quote – Make Money Your Servant
“Money is a terrible master but an excellent servant.”
– P.T. Barnum
‘Whoever has the gold makes the rules’ comes to my mind as I read this quote. People have always ruled over other people in one way or another, but money being a master has become a frighteningly frequent trend. Being ruled by debt is a scary place to be in, having been in some sort of debt for much of my life, I would know. But we can’t let money rule over us, that just leaves us down, depressed, and unable to complete tasks at hand. That doesn’t mean you should run out and buy everything you see, frugality is still the best policy, but don’t let your entire self definition be related to debt you’ve incurred.
Let money be your servant. Think of ways to work (slowly but surely) towards the light at the end of that debt tunnel. Make a plan, follow it. Money can work for everyone. Make money your bi…..servant!
