Assets Pay For Lifestyle And Luxuries. Period.



This is number #1 rule to build and live a Passive Income Lifestyle:

Always ensure that your assets pay for your lifestyle and your luxuries, and not just put everything and anything on your credit card/tab or from your earned income.

When the passive income from my assets can sustain my lifestyle and luxuries, then I have options to take any surplus from earnings from income or from assets to invest in more assets, and this is how the rich get richer – just keep identifying and acquiring more and more assets that puts more and more money in my pocket.
