Have you ever wondered where all your money went to? Do you often ponder why there is no money in your bank account at the end of each month? Have you found yourself frequently thinking about the invisible holes through which your funds vanish? If yes, then you have landed at the right place. We can tell you exactly the reasons why you are unable to amass money despite earning a decent income.

Here are the top 8 habits that can sneak into your hard-earned income and eat up your funds.

Spending more as your income increases

Theres no harm in raising your standard of life when you can. However, if you are a person who is constantly looking for ways to spend your money, you will probably findyourself in a difficult situation soon enough. If you continuously raise your expenditure along with any increase in your income (or even without it), it would be hard to have any real savings.

Try to keep your expenditures at a constant level along with exploring ways to increase your income. Thats the route to success!

Focusing on the present without caring about the future

Usually, when people find it hard to tackle a problem, they choose to ignore it. Thats a sure recipe for disaster. The same is the case with your finances. Generally, people focus on their present needs, wishfully thinking that future needs will somehow be met in some way.

You need to take the future into perspective whenever you are making any financial decision. Although it is good to take care of everything in the present, do your best to save for your future.

You think it is too early to start saving

When you are young, it is easy to get carried away by the various pleasures money can buy. People often think that right now is too early to start saving or investing. Wrong! It is never too early to save a portion of your income, no matter how low or high your income is!

Start saving today! In fact, experts say that you should save beforeyou spend. Keep aside a portion of whatever money or income you get, and then spend the rest!

Not keeping a record of your money

We all think that we know where our money comes from and where it ends up. Sadly, thats not true for most of us. We might be aware of our major expenditures, but the small things usually eat up our finances more than the big ones.

It is an excellent idea to start keeping a journal for all your income and expenses, whether they are huge or small. This way you will have a much better idea for controlling your finances.

Lack of budgeting and/or poor budgeting

You might be documenting everything. Then again, you might be missing the starting point a budget! Having a realistic and well-documented budget is the foundation of all your financial planning and success.

Make a budget and stick to it! I can say this from my own experience: it makes a huge difference in how you look at your money. In the absence of a budget, it is very easy to get carried away and commit unnecessary expenditures.

Being unclear of your needs, wants, and finances!

In order to save money and build wealth, it is of the utmost important that you absolutely care about the must-haves, good-to-haves, and not-to-haves! You need to prioritize your financial targets. If getting rich is a top priority for you, then you need to sacrifice some of your present pleasures, whether you like it or not.

Be clear about your goals and write them down. Review them at regular intervals to keep yourself on track.

Ignoring your debt

For a lot of people in todays world, interest eats up a huge portion of their finances. Its a painful fact. Still, they dont know how to get out of this vicious cycle, leaving them with little to no savings.

First of all, make paying your debt a top-of-the-list item on your agenda. Work out a plan for this and stick to it, no matter what. You dont want to believe that youre poor, do you?

Constantly upgrading your electronic gadgets

There is no limit to it. While there is no harm in buying gadgets that you actually need, buying only because there is this next version of mobile available in the market will definitely cause you more harm than good.

Take charge of your life today. Do what needs to be done right now. You can do it. Do yourself a favour and start your journey of becoming wealthy today. As William Shatner said, If saving money is wrong, I dont want to be right.

Reading To Kids Does Good to Their Brains Biologically, Research Finds

In college I learned an important factthat came to be a driving force in my classroom as well as in my parenting. Its good enough to share. Are you ready? The number of books a child has available in their home is strongly linked to their academic success in school. Specifically, studies show the more books in the home, the better those children do in school. It made a lot of sense to me at the time and seemed rather obvious; if a large amount of quality books were made available to children, they would likely be read to more often. Furthermore, those parents likely placed a heavier emphasis on reading and held a deeper understanding of its early benefits.

The study struck such a chord with me that many years later and at six months pregnant, I created a childrens library for the nursery. I bought a bookshelf and took one hundred dollars with me to a discount book store. I filled up all the shelves before my first child was even on this earth. As my family increased over the years, I made sure all of my kids had their own library. I added books along the way to meet their interests and developmental stages. I placed a heavy emphasis on reading aloud, always reading with them at night and as much as I could during the day. I taught them as many early literacy skills as possible during this time (text goes left to right, using pictures as clues, asking what they thought was going to happen or what the problem in the story was).

Reading Aloud Has Its Benefits

Reading aloud with children had always come naturally to me but a crash course in college and putting the skills into practice in the classroom allowed me to learn there is a stark difference between reading with kids and reading to kids. The craft, being able to engage a young reader so they can get the most out of the literature experience can be learned by any adult. But whether you are reading to a child or with a child, one things is clear. Scientists and doctors can now biologically prove that when children hear books read aloud, the chemical makeup of their brain actually changes.

Early Literacy Improves Academic Progress

Numerous studies have been done to show the benefits of early literacy and how its immersion ties into academic progress. But, a new study shows the why. Its been something scientists and doctors have been wanting to prove for a while now. Most compelling is that this study has more than just observation-based data.

Doctors and scientists now have scientific proof that the developing brain of a 3-5 year-old actually looks different when being read aloud to, dependent upon on how much the child has been read to in the past. The MRIs revealed that children from more stimulating home reading environments had greater activity in the parts of the brain that help with narrative comprehension and visual imagery. Their brains showed greater activity in those key areas while they listened to stories..

From nine months of age, my girls have had a book read to them nearly every night before bed and often had two or three books read aloud to them during the day. My oldest is in the 99th percentile for her vocabulary and my four-year-old is as precocious as they come. I absolutely attribute their speech and language, comprehension, above grade level reading level, oral retelling and contextual understanding to one thingbeing read to aloud daily.

Good Reading Habits Show Up in Early Age

Early on in the school year teachers can often pinpoint which children have had a literacy rich background and which ones have not (excluding children with suspected disabilities). Children who have not had books read to them often have lower comprehension skills, lower vocabulary skills and present with weaker reading stamina. Of course with anything and anyone, there will always be an exception to that rule but the statistics are telling.

If you want the best chance for your childs academic (and even social) success, carve out as much time as you can for exposure to literature. Go to the library or bookstore and bring home books, lots of them. Libraries often have a check-out limit that goes well over one hundred books. This means you dont have to make a weekly trip; every few weeks is plenty and can be worked into a realistic busy schedule. Getting these books into your home and then reading them aloud is the number one key to creating a literature rich environment.

Look at it as front-loading. I realized veryquickly I would be far more capable of helping my children at the ages of three or five years of age than I would when they were failing high school chemistry or Algebra II. I hope by giving my children the needed tools when they are young, they willbe better prepared for the future.

Thank science for its findings later but for now, make a plan to make your home more literature-based. At least once a day, tell your child to put down the iPad and pick up a book. Kids need to remember that reading is not only an option, but a necessity. And remember, there are more benefits to reading aloud with your child than just the academic successes that will come. The time spent one-on-one makes it even better. Adding daily read-alouds to your familys routine is something you will never regret doing, sadly the regrets only come with the opposite.

All Young People Should Learn These 6 Money Tips

In todays world, one of the most important things a younger person can do is start to learn how to manage their money wisely. It is too easy to get buried in debt, and it seems almost impossible to get out of it. By checking out these 6 tips, you can get yourself on the right track to financial peace of mind.

1. Create a budget, and stick to it!

You will see this tip on any blog you read, and there is a good reason for that. Make sure you actually write down your budget, and prioritize everything. This may help you keep from dipping into your bill money or your savings account. Another tip you can try is to over budget if you can. This way, if something unexpected happens, you wont have to go over your budget, but if there are no surprises, then you have extra money left over. For more tips on budgeting, check out MintLife Blog.

2. If you dont have a savings account, then start one.

Its very important to have a savings account for emergencies. I was always taught to try and save up at least 3 months worth of pay, just in case you lose your job, or have to take time off. I understand its hard to just stash that much money away all at once, but a little money here and there can really add up. One easy way to build your savings without even noticing is to have an automatic transfer set up from your checking to your savings. If you have direct deposit, then you can have, for example, $25.00 switched out automatically, and you hardly notice. For more information about savings accounts, click here.

3. Beware of Credit!

Credit is such a powerful tool to use in the financial world and can really help you when purchasing a new vehicle or home. It can also be fatal to your finances. According to research done by Debt.org, the average credit card debt of young people between the ages 18-34 ranged from $3000-$5200. In todays world, they make it too easy for people to get a credit card or some kind of buy now, pay later deal. While it may sound like a good idea at the time, it is what really hurts people years down the road. People think they have all the money in the world and swipe that card like they will never have to pay it back when, in reality, they do have to pay it all back, plus interest. If you do use credit, make sure you have the cash to back it up.

4. Live within your means.

Try to keep your cost of living below how much money you actually make. Suze Orman, a financial guru also suggests cutting your spending by 10%.By doing this, you will end up with extra money at the end of the month even after all your bills have been paid. This also means that if you get a promotion and a raise at your job you should try to continue to live the way you have been before. This means you will have even more money to save at the end of the month. If you unnecessarily increase your cost of living and you lose your promotion and raise, you just might not be able to afford everything anymore. So its best to just play it safe.

5. Invest in your retirement.

If you start putting money into a 401k or an IRA while you are still in your 20s, you will have contributed more money overall than you would have if you started in your 30s or 40s. This also means your retirement will have had more time to collect interest and make you more money. If you want to learn some good tips on how much you should contribute, check out this link.

6. Invest in health insurance.

Health insurance is a must. If you dont get it through your employer, you should try and get it from somewhere else. According to a survey done by The Common Wealth Fund, nearly 2 out of 5 adults between the ages of 19-29 where without health insurance for all of 2011. Sixty percent of those claimed to have not gotten needed healthcare because of their inability to pay, and half of them reported problems paying medical debt (see more at The Commonwealth Fundwebsite). If you have some sort of coverage, you can drastically reduce the cost of medical bills and keep yourself out of debt in the unfortunate event that you need to seek medical care.

Keep these 6 money tips in mind when managing your finances. You will be a lot better off in the long run if you take control now, rather than being at the mercy of debt collectors!

18 Signs You’ve Found Your Soulmate

Classified in : Uncategorized Tags : love, Soulmate

Spiritually speaking, it is said that even before you were born, the name of your spiritual half has been determined. Each soul has a perfect match your soulmate.

Although most people think of a soulmate as a perfect harmonious union of bliss, your true spiritual soulmate is the person who is intended to help you complete yourself.

Jerry McGuirewas right soul mates complete each other. A person is unable to complete his mission in life alone. Everyone needs someone to help them become a better person. This is not always a blissful experience.

Being in an honest, sincere, and committed soulmate relationship helps you to become a better version of yourself. You have to push yourself beyond your comfort zone, beyond your limits to find your better self.

Even though we tend to think of soul mates as a symbiotic union; soulmate relationships can be rough at the beginning. They can be like two jagged edged puzzle pieces trying to click into place. Sometimes it looks like you do not fit together at all, but soon after a little bit of twisting, turning, and flipping the pieces around, you feel the moment of the perfect click. Its a feeling deep in your soul, that says, this is the right one.

Often soulmates appear in disguise. You might not be physically attracted to each other when you first meet, but there is a mysterious force pushing you forward that tells you this is the right one for you.

You have a personal checklist of everything you want in a partner. Tall- check. Dark hair (no curls please)-check. Blondes only-check. 6 pack abs- check. Or you can be likeJerry Seinfeldwho knows his date is not the one becauseshe eats her peas one at a time.

So, if you are brave enough to move away from your romance checklist, open your eyes and your heart to unexpected possiblities, you might just be one of the lucky ones who finds their true soul match.

You know youve found your soulmate when:

1. You just know it.

Something deep inside tells you this is the perfect one for you. Its as if there is a spiritual force pushing you to let go of everything you previously expected and to give of yourself completely.

2. You have crossed paths before.

Soulmates have met each other and a previous time. You may not have connected, but you were in the same place, at the same time. Before my husband and I met, we lived across the street from each other and worked across the street from each other. Yet we never met until the time was right.

3. Your souls meet at the right time.

Each person has to be ready to receive the soul connection. Even though my husband and I were in close proximity of each other for many years, we did not meet until the time was right for both of us. You have to be prepared to meet your soulmate. It could be that you have to go through a relationship that doesnt work out, or that youre not ready to ditch your perfect person checklist, but when it comes to soulmates- timing is everything.

4. Your quiet space is a peaceful place.

Being quiet together is comforting like a fluffy down blanket on a cold winter night. Whether you are reading in the same room, or driving in the car, theres a quiet peace between you.

5. You can hear the other persons silent thoughts.

With soulmates, there is such depth to your relationship that you can feel and hear what your partner is thinking, even if it is not verbally expressed.

6. You feel each others pain.

You stand in each others shoes. You know each other so well, that the second he walks in the door, you can tell how his day was. You feel each others feelings: sadness, worry, and stress. And you share each others happiness and joy.

7. You know each others flaws and the benefits in them.

Yes, its true. Our flaws have benefits. Every trait has a positive as well as a negative side. Its the task of each person to always look for the good, even when things dont look so good. There is usually a benefit to each flaw. Stubborn people are good decision makers. Overly organized people are great at paying bills on time.

8. You share the same life goals.

Youre both on the same page with values, ethics, and goals. You may have a different way of reaching those goals, but you both want the same end result.

9. Youre not afraid of having a conversation.

Conversations can be challenging. Expressing concerns or attempting to make decisions is uncomfortable. Soulmates know that if they join together, they will be able to work it out.

10. You are not threatened by the need for alone time.

Whether its tennis three times a week or girls night out, you respect each others need for independence, knowing that when you get together, your time alone is special.

11. You dont experience jealousy.

Pretty girls at the office or handsome personal trainers arent a threat to your relationship.You are secure knowing that you are the only one.

12. You respect each others differences and opinions.

You know you have different opinions. Often soulmates are polar opposite. At times this is challenging. These are the times when you are being forced to let the other person complete you. You still have your own opinion, but instead of agreeing to disagree, there is a deep level of respect for each other. You listen and honor the differences.

13. You dont scream, curse, or threaten each other with divorce.

Of course you feel the anger. People unintentionally hurt each other. But soulmates arent nasty, hurtful, or punitive.

14. You give in because you want to make your partner happy.

Giving can often occur in unhealthy, co-dependent, or abusive relationships. But soulmates give to each other for the sole purpose of making each other happy.

15. You know how to apologize.

Its not easy to say Im sorry or admit that you did something that hurt the person you love. Soulmates realize that their actions or words cause harm. Even if they feel justified in their point of view, if their partner was hurt by it, they can easily apologize for the harm they have caused.

16. You would marry each other again.

You know this is the one and only one for you. Even through the tough times, you would choose your partner again. You feel a sense of pride in your partner.

17. You complete each other.

Yes, Im sorry to say it but, your partner fills in your blanks. No person is perfect. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Soulmates complete each other. Its the yin and yang of perfect harmony. One person may be the extrovert, while one is the introvert. One may be social, while the other a homebody. Soulmates are often opposite that are attracted to a person who has their missing pieces.

18.Being in each others arms washes away all your stress, worries, and anxiety.

There is no place youd rather be at the end of the day but in each others arms. If you had a rough day filled with disagreements, a fight with your boss or if you missed the train, whatever happened is gone the second you cuddle up together. There is a warmth in your heart, an inner peace you can feel. No words need to be spoken. All that exists is the silent, blissful union of two souls together. Two souls that were meant to be together eternally.
