Why Time is Your Most Valuable Asset!

February 13, 2023

In this highlight, we discuss why time is your most valuable asset in your wealth building journey. This highlight clip comes from our full show, “The Most Valuable Asset in Building Wealth!”


Building wealth is a journey, and time is the most valuable asset in that journey. In this blog post, we will discuss why time is such a powerful tool in building wealth and how to harness it.

Time, when left to itself, can do incredible things in your personal financial journey. This is why time is the most valuable asset in building wealth. My high school teacher once told us that investing $100 a month would turn us into a millionaire, and it blew our minds. When we started to understand what a dollar is, whether it’s consumed or invested, and what it could potentially become, it led us to understand the value of time in building wealth.

For example, if you’re a 21-year-old, a dollar spent on a beer today could potentially turn into $88 if you invest it. This is why we created a free deliverable called the “Wealth Multiplier,” which you can find on moneyguy.com. This resource helps you understand the value of every dollar you have and what it could turn into if you give it time to work between now and the time you turn 65.

We cannot talk about the power of time in building wealth without mentioning Warren Buffett, also known as the “Oracle of Omaha.” Warren is not only a genius investor, but also a maximizer of time. At the age of 55, he reached a net worth of $1 billion, and from that point on, he continued to grow his wealth to over $110 billion today at the age of 92.

One concept to consider is that of a “billion seconds of life.” A billion seconds is equivalent to 31.7 years, and for those under 45, you have the same amount of time to build wealth. Warren didn’t reach a billion dollars overnight, and it took him time to reach that point. However, once he did, his net worth continued to grow exponentially, reaching over 100 times that amount by the age of 92.

The lesson here is that you need to quit thinking linearly and start thinking exponentially. Humans tend to think linearly, but exponential growth is what happens when you harness the power of time. Warren Buffett’s journey to building wealth shows us that it’s never too late to start, and time can be your greatest asset.

In conclusion, time is the most valuable asset in building wealth, and it can do incredible things in your financial journey. Whether you’re 21 or 45, you have the power of time on your side. Download our free “Wealth Multiplier” deliverable on moneyguy.com to understand the value of every dollar you have and what it could turn into. Start harnessing the power of time today and watch your wealth grow exponentially.
