Studies have shown that more than two thirds of people are living paycheck to paycheck at least part of the time. That’s a pretty stunning statistic.
Keeping your head above water financially seems to be getting harder and harder every year, and there are a variety of reasons why that’s happening.
Some of it has to do with the way our attitudes have changed when it comes to money. Some of it is the economy we’re experiencing, and some of it is due to how the world is changing and leaving some people behind because they won’t change.
It’s been a phenomenon that’s been happening even since ancient times, as evidenced in the Bible in Haggai 1:6 where it says, “You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”
But just because there are a lot of reasons why it’s more difficult to make ends meet these days doesn’t mean that it’s not possible to be successful financially.
