How to think like an investor instead of a saver

The obvious difference is a saver takes hard earned money and tucks it away safely in a CD, savings account or a coffee can. In the current environment of low interest rates, your money will grow slowly, if at all, it may even diminish in value because the yield won’t keep up with inflation.

It’s boring and lonely for money in the coffee can and a CD offers no inspiration for money to work towards advancement Your money is at little to no risk but it’s not working for you any harder than a rented security guard asleep at the front door.

If you’re reading this you probably are not interested in being a saver. No, you want to be a true investor. Better yet, you want to be a wealth builder.  Let’s look a little more deeply into the difference between being a passive investor and a dynamic wealth builder.  

Passive income investor…

As a passive investor you think differently. You see ways to generate income without working hard. You understand creating wealth is a game. You find ways to invest where you can collect a monthly residual, also known as mailbox money, whether it’s real estate, stock trading, or setting up a business that’s on auto pilot. Passive investors research and talk to a lot of people to find those opportunities. When you’re an investor, you understand you can create your reality and you don’t really have to trade dollars for hours. Passive investors often live a life with more liberty and choice.


Passive investors often have exponential increase and savers have a slow increase. Savers cut out Starbucks, clip coupons and eat in more. Costco and Big Lots are the routine versus travel and a life of freedom! Passive investors may still may be Costco shoppers but it’s not a dominant part of their free time. Savers are being smart about spending money while not doing the additional stuff to make money. Passive investors find ways to make their money grow.

Whether you’re a saver or an active investor, both categories,  are created from your habits in thinking. Changing your habit from being a saver to an investor could change just by spending as little as two hours a week reading about wealth building. Rather than spend those hours watching TV, why not begin to educate yourself to creating a different reality?

There is nothing more empowering than taking charge of your own wealth, understanding your money and how it’s capable of working hard for you. It’s surprisingly easy once you learn the many wealth building strategies and how to identify them. A true investor has multiple approaches to building wealth. They take advantage of opportunities to create and grow their money without trading time for dollars. And, as with anything, the more you work at it the more successful you become.

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”

– Albert Einstein

When you discover the many windows of wealth that exists, you uncover a veritable treasure chest, filled with countless jewels of wealth stratagems. Sounds a little like being a financial pirate, right? Maybe a little. If you loved the Pirates of the Caribbean series, you are probably the type who sided with Captain Jack Sparrow and his merry band of renegades. Because they lived life without limits and seized opportunities where they presented themselves. They took risks in order to seek great rewards.

Even the beautiful and pampered Elizabeth Swann chose to break the constraints of being the Governor’s daughter and chose instead a life enriched with excitement and adventure. This is the metaphorical illustration of life as a passive investor.

The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.”

Mark Caine

I don’t suggest you become a modern-day pirate, but you can create a lifestyle of financial freedom, live your dreams, and create the wealth that supports it. It is easier than you think to take control of your destiny. You need only to open yourself up to the discovery of how to utilize your talent, skills, and passion to make it happen. Inspire yourself, and your money by putting your money to work for you a trait of a passive investor versus you working hard for your money, a trait of a saver!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain
