12 Better Money Habits For A Prosperous New Year

The New Year is upon us!

Have you set some goals for the year?  In your list of resolutions, be sure to include your finances as an area you'd like to improve this year.

With just a few tweaks in your habits, you can increase your income by thousands and set yourself up for future financial success.

Throughout my journey in personal development, I've learned about the power of successful habits and how stacking them over time can completely change your life. When it comes to your finances, it's no different.

The opposite is also true. Nearly 70 percent of lottery winners go broke within five years. That's a crazy fact, right?

They're stuck with the old habits they had before becoming wealthy.  The aim is to avoid becoming one of those people -- so we need to start applying ourselves now.

It's taken me a couple of years to change my finances through my own mistakes, as well as reading and learning from mentors. Before then, my spending habits were random, and I never made the most of the money I earned.

I have now changed my money habits and have a healthy amount of savings and a passive income stream from a variety of sources. I'm well on my way to buying my first home with enough left over to give away to causes I believe in.

None of this would have been possible if I didn't learn and adopt different money habits which I'd like to share with you.
