Basic Rule For Getting Rich - Rule 1

1. Focus on what is most important ThinkstockIn achieving wealth, how you invest isn't nearly as important as how much you save. Say you're 40, have $200,000 saved, with 60% in stocks, and are putting away 10% of a $100,000 salary (including company match). You have a 52% chance of retiring with 70% of your pre-retirement income, according to T. Rowe Price. Boost your stock stake to 80%, and your chances improve modestly, to 57%. But if you boost your savings to 15% instead, you get to 69%. [Related: Jobs with high lifetime earnings] Message: Stretch to save the most you can. Source: Yahoo Finance
