Have you ever tried to pull a nail out of a board without a hammer? It's really hard, right? It can be done, but it'll take you forever to do it. The reason it's so much easier with a hammer is because of something called leverage. And, believe it or not, you use leverage all the time. The very first thing you do any time you are confronted with a hard task is look for a way to leverage. If you need to carry a lot of groceries, what do you do? You grab a basket. If you need to pull a nail out of a board, you grab your hammer. I need to do math, where's my calculator? Right?
So, you're always looking for a way to leverage and make the task easier. But, when it comes to our money, so often we don't leverage. People just think that leverage and money don't mix, and I don't understand it. For some reason, they just think it doesn't belong there. But, then you have people who've figured out how to leverage in the stock market...people like Warren Buffet, for example, who've made billions of dollars in the stock market. They've figured out that leverage actually does belong with money. In fact, your money has a tremendous ability to be leveraged.
So, if you're in a position right now where you're struggling to make ends meet, or maybe you're working a job, or two jobs, or three jobs, and you just can't figure out how to get by, maybe it's time to grab that tool you call money and leverage it.
