Can you Really Run Out of Money?

Yes, you can. But there are some reasons behind it. 

3 Main Reasons Why You Run Out of Money

  1. You Spend more than you make. This is basically a spending addiction and you always spend more money than you make. Even if you are living paycheck to paycheck, there are still ways to combat this type of living and not have to spend more money than you make. 
  2. You have poor money making decisions, or what I like to call “The Money Stupids”. You don’t focus on the right things, or prioritize the right things when it comes to your money. You focus on things you want before you focus on things you need.
  3. You have a poor money relationship. You don’t appreciate money for what it does for you and what it really is.
