never give up - you can take charge of your financesAlthough you may have failed at managing your money wisely in the past, it’s never too late to start to develop good habits.  Whenever you begin to feel it’s a losing battle or that there is just no way you can make ends meet let alone save for your retirement, think of WD-40.

For those of you who have never heard of it, WD-40 is a spray designed to repel water and prevent corrosion. It’s creator, Norm Larsen, invented WD-40 in 1953 after 40 attempts!  That means he failed 39 times before finally getting it right!  He was persistent.  If he had given up, the world would never have been able to benefit from such a product.  In the same way, you cannot afford to give up on developing good money management skills.  Giving up is not the answer.

There are many ways you can improve your money habits.  You can meet with a financial planner at your local financial institution and they can crunch some numbers and help you to create feasible goals for yourself.  You can create a budget and stick to it, and you can also read books and Internet articles that will give you ideas on how to save money and invest it wisely.

Although it will take discipline now and mean that you will be making some sacrifices in the present, you will reap the benefits in the future.  The sooner you start getting your finances in order, the better off you will be.
