Vista Land`s Financial Awareness Seminar: 5 Important Lessons by The Graceful Mist - Picture (www.TheGracefulMist.com)
Recently, I attended one of Vista Land`s Financial Awareness Seminars. It was educating and motivating. It wasn`t all about being rich and gaining money. It was also about being wise even in minor decisions and gaining knowledge regarding real estate investment. Below are some of the important lessons I acquired:



1.) Live Simply and Wisely

Don`t do things out of the want to boast. Do things because they are necessary. When deciding, look and think for the long-term consequences of each purchase and expense. Educate yourself and gain wisdom. Gain the necessary knowledge to move forward for a better life and live by the words of proverbs.

2.) Create a Personal Income Statement

Financial statements are the documents that investors look into to see whether a company is worth something. They help the management see the over-all allocation of their funds and create decisions that will help better the company`s financial standing. Creating a personal income statement will help you manage your finances better because you`ll be able to have an over-all view of your gross income, expenses and net income and assets and liabilities. Just like the management of a company, a financial statement of your own finances will aid you to create decisions regarding what to do and where to allot your money for a better financial status.

3.) Turn Temporary Income to Permanent

Temporary income is usually the salary of being an employee of a company. If at some point, something unfortunate happens and you lose this temporary income, you`ll be left with no income. This is why it`s important to invest your assets that will yield permanent income.

4.) Prioritize Investments that will Yield Income

Many people dream of immediately having their own dream house which at most times, cost as high as can be afforded. In reality, such investment is better left fulfilled later on in life when permanent income is enough and stable. Instead of buying high-priced investments like house and lots only to be occupied or abandoned, prioritizing investments that will yield permanent income will help you to gain more assets to turn into permanent income again. As your assets and permanent income increases, the easier it is to gain and invest more. This will allow you to have a more abundant and stable income in life which in turn will help you buy the things you dream of like a huge house and lot while still having great earnings

5.) As Age Increases, Opportunities Decrease

There are many exceptions to this. However, as a person gets older, the job or financial opportunities for him may decrease. It could be because of age, health or capacity restrictions. With real estate, the earlier a person invests, the higher his chances are of earning more because values of properties usually increase. Start investing and making wise financial decisions as soon as you can and don`t waste time.


The seminar was engaging. I was asked questions and I asked questions. Despite being only 18, I wasn`t belittled but rather encouraged. They encouraged starting young and doing something now to have a better future. Even though I can`t invest now due to financial restrictions, I can hope and anticipate for the future. Just like what I`ve learned in the first lesson above, gaining knowledge now will help me make wise decisions that will prevent me from making unnecessary troubles. Whether you`re a young person like me or not, it`s significant to realize and remember that regardless of the past, you can still make wise decisions today.

  3. I think they are right sometimes your age does decrease value which is a sad statement. I guess that is the way the cookie crumbles.

  5. This sounds very interesting and I read your report carefully.
    Many people think my husband and I are a bit crazy, because after the wedding we decided to invest and start a new business, instead of settle, get a mortgage and start making children. Of curse, it is risky, bu if we have a chance to make a successful company, they that will give us as you called it, more permanent income :)

    1. If we have the right opportunities backed up by knowledge and wise thinking, I think we should at least consider taking a risk. To risk nothing is to do nothing. How`s your company now? Thank you for taking the time to read the post. ❀

    1. "So many people do something they hate for financial security." Such as? As long as it`s not out of greediness and other bad or negative intentions/reasons, I don`t see much disadvantages in being financially secured.

  9. I love the last point. It's like, don't miss any opportunity and just grab it anytime you have the chance. It's just so true, that as a year added to a person, some chances tend to diminish. I would love to attend a financial seminar too. :)

  16. I love your first point, "gain the necessary knowledge to move forward". It's easy to have aspirations but it's how you act to achieve them that makes you succeed or fail.

  19. These are great tips. Especially the one about investing in real estate sooner rather than later. We were lucky to have bought property right before home prices here skyrocketed. We weren't sure if we could do it but we just bit the bullet and adjusted our lifestyle. So glad we did!

  24. Turning temporary income into permanent income is already something I'm working on. Houses are so darn expensive in England that it's important to start saving as soon as possible to try and get ownership of your own home!
