A Child and his Nuts
One of the story is about a boy who sees a jar that’s brimming with a lot of varieties of nuts only to find himself wanting to hoard all the nuts from the inside. However, the amount of nuts have prevented the boy from removing his hands from the jar which was solved as a man imparted his knowledge to the kid that the only way out for him is to get lesser amount of nuts.
It is amazing how the lesson in this story is something that can help greatly in financial goals, making it apparent that taking too much than what you can chew isn’t necessarily a good thing and that sometimes, the best way to move forward is with lesser amount than going for more. Getting smaller challenges and goals at the beginning is better in order to make sure that your pursuit towards your ultimate financial goal will also come closer to fruition.
The Elderly Miser
Once there was an Elderly miser who found himself wanting to get a massive hunk of gold to the point where he surrendered and sold all of which he possessed. However, the old man sooner than later, found himself complaining as the gold which he buried in order to protect it, was stolen by his workers, leaving him empty-handed at the end.
The golden lesson that can be derived from the story of the old man, is to make sure that you always utilize your money and not let it stagnate like what the old man did when he buried the gold. By doing what the old man did, you can even end up relying on installment loans for people with bad credit, which may end up lessening your credit even more and continuously damage your reputation sooner than later. Whenever a money lands on your palm or pocket – whether it be a spare or not, you should invest it in something where it can potentially become bigger and better.
