The Five Laws of Gold

We are constantly looking for sound financial advice but how do you know if the advice you receive is worth listening to or if it would be better avoided?

When you are first considering investing or devising a plan, you may find yourself presented with overwhelming possibilities but there are some basic rules for your money and George S. Clason presents them simply and clearly.

Anytime you consider making a financial decision just check them against these ‘Five Laws of Gold’ as written in ‘The Richest Man in Babylon’. If something doesn’t fit within these laws then it is advice to be avoided. It is really this simple:

The Five Laws of Gold

1: Gold comes gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will put aside 10% of all he earns to build an estate for his family and future.

-Quite simple, just save 10% and only use this money for your future and the future of your family.

2: Gold labours diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds it profitable employment.

-Make your money work for you and remember to guarantee your initial investment.

3: Gold clings to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.

-Seek sound financial advice and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Get rich quick schemes are often not following these laws and you may lose your money as quickly as you invested it. Take your time.

4: Gold slips away from the man who invests it in businesses that he is not familiar or is not approved by those skilled in its keep.

-Stick with investments that you know have results or have had results for people offering sound advice. We read about this earlier when the mistake was made by letting a brickmaker invest money to buy jewels. So make sure you are familiar or you know the person who is giving the advice is familiar with your chosen investments.

5: Gold flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who follows the advice of tricksters or schemers or who trusts it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investment.

-Again, the get rich quick scheme is to be avoided. Take it easy and procure an amount of money that will place you in a position to take advantage of a sound opportunity.

Whenever you consider placing your money somewhere, check your investment against this list.

Does it adhere to the ‘Five Laws of Gold’?

It is also interesting to consider the current perceived crisis against these laws. Where do you think it went wrong?

However you can now be safe in the knowledge that you know better. And when you know better... you do better... Now it is your choice!

Happy Manifesting!
