The more easily you get your wealth, the sooner you will lose it and the harder it is to earn, the more you will have.
As soon as you start saving and investing your money, it starts earning money all by itself. Then the earnings on those earnings start earning their own money. It can quickly become a runaway exponential snowball of income. On the other hand, when you start spending too much, the same runaway exponential snowball of debt takes place.
“The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you not to have any.” – Katharine Whitehorn
