We pledge to be aware of the Beast of Financial Terror who seeks to gnaw away at our financial security and do his best to make us slaves to debt so we live in a state of constant Fear, Intimidation and Complacency over our financial affairs.
To counter the Beast of Financial Terror, we vow to design and adhere to certain Principles of Financial Vigilance that will give us the Courage to overcome Financial Fear, the Conviction to stick to our Family Financial Vigilance Plan in the face of Financial Intimidation to spend our reserves, and to muster the Right Actions that benefit our Children's Children's Children to sustain our Financial Vigilance when the virus of Financial Complacency seeks to render us powerless and to cause leaks or drains or simply the abuse of our Financial Vigilance.
One of the ways we can achieve a Financial Vigilance Plan is to launch a Vigilance Savings Plan that seeks to increase our assets by at least One Percent of the amount we spend until we reach a minimum of saving Ten Percent of what we earn. We vow to try always to "Pay Ourselves First" by putting Ten Percent of what we earn immediately into some safe and secure Family Vigilance Savings Plan, and learning to live on the Ninety-Percent that is left.
Further, we agree to dedicate the funds of that Ten Percent Vigilance Savings to those areas of Family Security that benefit us all in respective ways, and that we will discuss and agree on any expenditures so that as a family we have unanimity regarding our Financial Security and the Vigilance necessary to assure it.
