The Pleasure of Walking Tall
THE PLEASURE OF WALKING TALL
Your savings, believe it or not, affect the way you stand, the way you walk, the tone of your voice. In short, your physical well-being and confidence.
A man without savings is always running. He must. He must take the first job offered or nearly so. He sits nervously on life's chairs because any small emergency throws him into the hands of others.
A man with savings can walk tall. He may appraise opportunities in a relaxed way, have time for judicious estimates and not be rushed by economic necessity.
A man with savings can afford to resign from his job, if his principles so dictate. And for this reason, he'll never need to do so. A man who can afford to quit is much more useful to his company and therefore more promotable. He can afford to give his company the benefits of his candid judgements.
A man with savings can afford the wonderful privilege of being generous in family or neighborhood emergencies. He can take a level stare into the eyes of any man.....friend, stranger or enemy. It shapes his personality and character.
If you don't need money for college, a home, or retirement, then save for self confidence. The state of your savings does have a lot to do with How Tall You Walk.
