The process of building a business is more meaningful than achieving success. Getting out of debt is hard, but quite enticing.
If you struggle with spending you can consider setting up a playing hard to get account. It’s difficult to withdraw money from such an account. For example if you fix the money for a year then you are forced to leave the money intact. You can also set up a joint account with your spouse. So you have to explain to someone else why you want to withdraw money. This reduces the propensity for reckless spending.
An asset which plays hard to get can preserve wealth for the long term. Disposing of land is not so easy and so your wealth is preserved for a long time. A retirement account like NSSF also plays hard to get and can really compound your savings.
