RULE 80: Shop For Quality

INTRO: Staying
Wealthy
Now you’ve got
it, you don’t want to let it go, so the next section is how to hang on to it
once you’ve got it. Assuming you now know how to avoid the giant snail scams
and the ostrich farms; how to preserve, protect, enjoy and maintain it. After
all, when you’ve finally got it, you don’t want to waste it, squander it, throw
it away or give it to me. Actually the last one isn’t true. You can if you
really want to.

There are
endless web sites all offering to look after your money for you. Ignore them
all. They usually say something like: Start Your Own Wealth Freedom journey
Today
No Time to Lose! All you have to do is sign up for a
newsletter and buy a ‘get rich quick’ book right away. They promise to make you
a millionaire within three to five years. Perhaps you should ask for a refund
on this one because I promise you nothing beyond hard work, dedication, focus,
creativity, standing out from the crowd, forward planning and the honest sweat
of your brow. Gosh. No promises there at all. 

“Shopping for quality says masses about the way you
live, the way you conduct yourself and your business. It says quality to others
who will adjust the way they treat you. It also saves you money in the long run
– cheap can often be a false economy”

My lovely wife
taught me this one – credit where it is due. When we met I was a great one for
finding a bargain – two chickens for the price of one at the supermarket, that
sort of thing. She, on the other hand, bought less (I never did do anything
with that other chicken) but bought quality. So, I would cook a thin andSick-looking
chicken and drink it with cheap white plonk
and she would provide lobster and champagne. You can see why I fell for her. 
Advert
I bought five cheap
T-shirts in a pack and she bought one immaculate of much better quality. Now
her stuff:
• Lasted longer
• Washed better
• Looked better
with age
• Kept its color
better
• Kept its shape
better
• Said more
about her in a positive way
• Took less
maintenance (I drove a cheap car that was always breaking down and I missed
meetings etc. whereas she drove a better car and always arrived looking calm
and immaculate).
She taught me
that the money I was spending, although less, was being wasted because I had to
replace stuff much more often. I was throwing money away and looking cheap at
that. Shopping for quality rather than price was a hard lesson to learn. I had
to discard all those money myths from my childhood:
• Don’t spend
more than you need to.
• No one needs
to look that expensive.
• It is somehow
wrong to spend money on yourself.
It is
somehow better to get a bargain than to buy quality.
Shopping for quality says masses about the way you
live, the way you conduct yourself and your business. It says quality to others
who will adjust the way they treat you. It also saves you money in the long run
