"Paying yourself first" - look it up! The best way to avoid saving is to only save what is left at the end of the month. This way, you have a great chance of spending all of your income, leaving absolutely nothing left to save towards yourself. (01:13) If you are really committed to not being a millionaire, then you would take it a step even further and spend even more than you make every month, accumulating credit card debt and severely hampering your overall wealth ability. (01:26) Saving $500 a month for 30 years at 10% comes out to over $1.1 million. Someone who saves just $300 a month because they are spending first and saving last, would come out at over $450,000 less over those same 30 years and 10% rate. (01:50) Quote for the episode: "Saving part of your income is one of the main drivers in building wealth."
