A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.
– Colin Powell
It is common for children to receive tons of unsolicited advice dealing with hard work. Growing up, messages of doing the best and being the best through hard work and determination are being fed to the young people across the globe.
Hard work is always rewarded. Some may argue that it isn’t so but it is simply true. Exerting effort on what you do will always bring out a benefit both expected and unexpected.
It takes a whole lot of effort to give all that you can for a task or a project. Hard work is regarded as scared in many religions. People believe that it is a great sign of a healthy soul.
One of the perks that companies give today is the bonus. There are bonuses that are expected and are required by the law. There are also bonuses that come like a surprise.
So how should workers really spend bonuses?
When you find yourself with a good amount of bonus cash, the first thing that you may think of is the item that you have always wanted to buy. Spell spurge.
It is wise to taste the fruits of your labor. A farmer must know the taste of his produce. When it comes to bonuses, it is just right to get something for yourself. This will make you feel a little appreciation from yourself for all your hard work. At times, this will help you propel further in your career. It can become your source of motivation.
It is unwise, however, to put all your eggs in one basket. Make sure that in your bonus, you also set a portion for investments and savings. This way, your bonus for this year will be a tool for an extra income the following year.
Get Zero Credit
This will be one of the most significant gifts you can give to yourself. Free yourself from debts. If you have the chance, clear all those negatives that has been crippling your financial health. Take the red marks off and start building your finances.
Invest in Investments
Get the help of a friend or much better a financial adviser. Think of ways on how to distribute your finances. Invest in your retirement funds. Plan ways on how to venture into a business when you retire. Or better yet, plan your early retirement by being an entrepreneur.
Fatten the Piggy Bank
If you have not decided yet, you can always try on making the piggy bank route your choice. Save your money while planning on how to use it. Keep it away from your prying hands and from online shops.
Bonuses have that elating effect. It sends you to a world of bliss. What you need to do is make that bliss turn into larger and longer blisses. Be wise and make your bonus last longer that your Christmas break.
Enjoy it and at the same time use it to propel you into the finances you have been dreaming of.
