Money DOES Grow on Trees…
Money DOES Grow on Trees…

We all grew up hearing the old saying, “Money doesn’t grow on trees”. What if I were to tell you that’s not true?
As the great Warren Buffett has said, “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
Everyone starts with seeds. The seeds are dollars you get paid for the work you do. You then have a choice about how many of those seeds you give away to others and how many you choose to plant to grow into money trees for your future.
The more seeds you give away, the more ability you give others to grow money trees and the less you have available for your future.
Think about it next time you get paid. You will pay numerous other people from that pay… the bank, the supermarket, your phone/internet company, insurance companies, schools… your favourite café. Seeds dispersed left, right and centre in the ‘gardens’ of others. How many of your seeds will be kept for you and your family?
Every one of these seeds could be grown into a huge money tree.
Trees take time to grow, and so does money. Give your money the care it deserves and it will make you wealthy.
But what happens if you don’t plant it in good soil? What happens if you don’t water it? What if it’s deprived of sunlight? What happens if you don’t take care of it?
When it comes to growing money trees, there will be plenty of sunny days, but there will also be storms along the way. So, you’re going to want to grow a forest of money trees in case you lose a few along the way. You’ll want to diversify with a collection of different plants.
In saying that, I’ve found one type of tree is virtually guaranteed to grow particularly well. But they’re actually pretty rare because only a few wise and patient people are prepared to give them the care they need.
This rare tree costs nothing to buy, requires very little care, minimal water and just a bit of attention each year to make sure it’s healthy. It bears fruit after a while and the crop is reasonably predictable. The longer it lives, the more spectacular it looks and the more fruit it bears.
This particular tree has also been known to change people’s lives dramatically for the better.
The name of this life-changing tree is a Get Rich Slowly tree. A GRS tree.
Now that I have your attention, and all jokes aside, this little bit of fun does carry an extremely important message. The savings plan that the tree represents will do everything I said…and more! Honestly!
I’ll put it to you that you will earn millions of dollars in your working life. Millions of seeds are going to pass through your fingers… what will you have to show for it?
If you’re not sure, don’t die wondering. Do something about it today.
Growing wealth really is no different in theory to growing a garden. Apply the same principles, apply common sense… and you will succeed.
So, now that you’ve read this, how’s your financial garden looking at the moment?
Make your financial life into a garden and it will reward you with produce to fuel the life you want to lead.
Money really DOES grow on trees… When will you start planting?
P.S. Paying off your mortgage is good, but your house produces no income… you have to create wealth outside your family home if you ever want to achieve financial freedom.
