With the internet being used by over 3 billion people worldwide, there has never been a greater opportunity for the words of a wise man to have so much impact. Here are the top 5 quotes we think everyone should keep in mind while they keep an eye on their finances.

Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.

-Benjamin Franklin

Franklin is definitely one clever guy, and these words of his could never be more accurate. With someone being declared bankrupt or insolvent every 8 minutes in 2013 in Canada alone, it really pays to keep an eye on those trickling expenses.

A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life.

Another very valuable thing to remember here, there is nothing quite as freeing as knowing your money is safe and secure, and you have all you need to keep your family on track and worries off your mind.

I believe that through knowledge and discipline, financial peace is possible for all of us.
– Dave Ramsey

Now bad things can happen to anyone, and some unlucky timing can be all it takes to knock even the most organised individual off their pedestal. But talking to one of our specialists at Credit Counselling Sudbury might be all you need to get back on track and keep your peace of mind.

Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.
– Epictetus

This one is key. Being financially stable doesn’t mean waking up on your silk sheets and stepping out in your Lamborghini for a quick trip to the beach. Knowing what you need to spend money on, and what truly costs you the most, is all you need to ensure that every day you live is one that you feel safe and financially secure.

The way to become rich is to put all your eggs in one basket and then watch that basket.
– Andrew Carnegie

This one sounds a little strange at first, but the principle is very simple. Don’t let anything slip by. It can be easy to ignore that recurring payment you can’t remember the source of, but the only way to be sure you know where your money is, is to keep tabs on it at all times!

We hope you find these quotes both informative and powerful. Please remember – Credit Counselling Sudbury is always ready to do what we can to maintain your financial peace of mind.
