Wasting Surplus Funds

Wasting Money

 

A rarer situation is to earn much more than you spend which may or may not have happened by design. If it didn't happen by design you should be a little concerned as this is a result of good fortune, not planning. In fact if your spending habits happen to change, or your circumstances change, you may start losing money rapidly, so please be aware - track your spending.

This situation is potentially more dangerous than I first thought. It created a sense of over-confidence and the need to monitor my cashflow quickly disappeared. Many times have I created abundance, become cocky and started to overspend, then I lost my momentum (and savings), ending back with little to show for my efforts.
