Five laws of Gold

Hi everyone, 
How are you doing? How's your finances faring too?
Mine has been giving me a lot of concerns. To save or not to save. To open a new account or not. Is it wise to get a loan or not? How do I become financially stable?- These are some questions that bug me daily. How about you?
If you were to choose between money and wisdom, which would you pick?
Well, my neighbor gave me a book as a gift (One of my favorite gifts ever). The title is 'The richest man in Babylon'. Have you read it?
Please, if you haven't, READ it now. And if you have read it, re-read it. It's a gem...

One part of the book that stands out for me is 'the five laws of gold'. It states:

I. Gold cometh gladly and in increasing quantity to any man who will put by not less than one-tenth of his earnings to create an estate for his future and that of his family.
II. Gold laboreth diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds for it profitable employment, multiplying even as the flocks of the field.
III. Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.
IV. Gold slippeth away from the man who invests it in businesses or purposes with which he is not familiar or which are not approved by those skilled in its keep.
V. Gold flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who followeth the alluring advice of tricksters and schemers or who trusts it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investment.
" 'These are the five laws of gold as written

Simple rules, right? 
I've decided to start applying the rules stated. How about you?

Anyways, enjoy the song for the day: Aston Martin Music by Rick Ross, Chrisette Michelle and Drake
