SAVING……….makes you Walk Taller

SAVE . . . . and WALK TALL


Your savings, believe it or not, affect the way you stand, the very walk you walk, the tone of your voice…. in short, your physicaal well-being and self confidence. A man without savings is always running. He  must…. He must take the first job offered, or nearly so. He sits nervously on chairs because any small emergency throws him into the hands of others.

Without savings, a man must be grateful. Grateful is a fine thing in its place, but a constant state of gratitude is a horrible place in which to live. A man with savings can WALK TALL. He may appraise opportunities in a relaxed way, have time for judicious estimates and not be rushed by economic necessity.

A man with savings can afford to resign from his job, if his principles so dictate. And for this reason, he’ll never need to do so. A man who can afford to quit is much more useful to his company, and therefore more promotable. He can afford to give his company the benefit of his most candid judgments.

A man always concerned about necessities such as food and rent can’t afford to think long range career terms.

A man with savings can afford the wonderful privilege of being generous in family or neighborhood emergencies. He can take a level stare from the eyes of any man……friend, strager or enemy. It shapes his personality and his character.

The ability to save has nothing to do with the size of income. Many high-income people, who spend it all, are on a treadmill, darting through life like minnows.

The Dean of American Bankers, J.P. Morgan, once advised a young broker: “Take waste out of your spending and you’ll drive the haste out of your life”.

If you don’t need money for college, a home or retirement, then save for self-confidence. The state of your savings does have a lot to do with how TALL YOU WALK.
