Its just intelligent foresight, I think...
Back over 25 years ago when I was a kid, my parents broke up and split everything in the middle. My Dad used the funds to by another property for 190k
(which is worth well over a million now), he lived like a total tight arse, saving every cent, like a chimpmonk saving there nuts for winter.
My mum on the other hand, used the funds to take us kids on a luxury holiday to Queensland and has always been the sort of person who would give a
person $5 if they needed it, even though she only had $10 to her name.
Fastforward to today and my mum is a 50 something year old women, struggling to pay rent and living week to week... well my Dad on the other hand,
doesn't even need to work anymore, travelling overseas constantly and buying luxury holiday houses on the beach with top of the line jet skies to
Me personally, I'm like my mum. As in, live it up in the now and just worry about the later when I get there.
In other words, I'll always be broke, in the long run...
