The First Law of Gold

Quote

Gold cometh gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will put by not less than one-tenth of his earnings to create an estate for his fortune and that of his family.

The more gold I accumulate, the more readily it comes to me and in increased quantities. The gold which I save earns more, even as yours will, and its earnings earn more, and this is the working out of the firsl law.

George C. Clason

Procrastination

Quote

No man willingly permits the thief to rob his bins of grain. Nor does any man willingly permit an enemy to drive away his customers and rob him of his profits. When once I did recognize that such acts as these my enemy was committing, with determination I conquered him. So must every man master his own spirit of procrastination before he can expect to share in the rich treasures of Babylon.

The truth is this: Good luck can be enticed by accepting opportunity.

Action will lead thee forward to the successes thou dost desire.

George C. Clason

Become wiser

Quote

The more of wisdom we know, the more we may earn. That man who seeks to learn more of his craft shall be richly rewarded. If he is an artisan, he may seek to learn the methods and the tools of those most skillful in the same line. If he laboreth at the law or at healing, he may consult and exchange knowledge with others of his calling. If he be a merchant, he may continually seek better goods that can be purchased al lower prices.

Thus the seventh and last remedy for a lean purse is to cultivate thy own powers, to study and become wiser, to become more skillful, to so act as to respect thyself. Thereby shalt thou acquire confidence in thy self to achieve thy carefully considered desires.

George C. Clason

One hundred percent of appreciated value

Quote

Confuse not the necessary expenses with thy desires.

Study thoughtfully thy accustomed habit of living. Herein may be the most often found certain accepted expenses that may wisely be reduced or eliminated. Let thy motto be one hundre percent of appreciated value demanded for each coin spent.

The gold we may retain from our earnings is but the start. The earnings it will make shall build our fortunes.

A man’s wealth is not in the coins he carries in his purse; it is in the income he buildeth, the golden stream that continually floweth into his purse and keepeth it always bulging.

George C. Clason

Road to wealth

Quote

I found the road to wealth when I decided that a part of all I earned was mine to keep. And so will you

Every gold piece you save is a slave to work to you. Every copper it earns is its child that also can earn for you. If you would become wealthy, then what you save must earn, and its children must earn, that all may help to give to you the abundance you crave

A part of all you earn is yours to keep. It should be not less than a tenth no matter how little you earn. It can be as much more as you can afford. Pay yourself first.

George C. Clason
