Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated

Confucius had said 2,500 years earlier, 

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”

Jon Jandai gave a TED talk on simplicity of the life, have a look here

the crux of what he says is that we don’t have to do what society tells us, we can have the life we want, and our choices determine if we get such a life.

Consider saving money and investing it well over a long period of time. This is all you need to create wealth. Simple, right? But the question again is, like Jon asked, why do we make it so hard?

Of course, money isn’t everything in life. But it sure does help to consistently spend less than you earn and invest the difference well. Over time, compounding will do the rest for you.

Living a minimalist, no frills, life is a powerful idea

The quicker you grasp this simple idea about saving versus spending, the quicker you will be able to start living like a free bird…even if you don’t have many millions in your bank.

Charlie Munger once described the secret of success as 

“take a simple idea and take it seriously.”

Spending way less than you earn and investing that difference well over a long period of time is that simple idea.

This is a very simple blog post and very small in size but it will help us to live a very fulfilled life.Think about it.
