Discipline requires being able to say no when and if the need arises. This can be achieved by saying "No" to impulse purchases, No to buying that extra pair of clothing and that extra pair of shoe which you don't really need.

2. Create a budget.
A whole lot of Nigerians routinely spend more than they can afford. The key to spending within your means is to know your expenses and to spend less than you make through adequate budgeting.
A good monthly budget can help ensure you pay your bills on time, have funds to cover unexpected emergencies and reach your financial goals.
Here are key points on how to create a working budget:
i. Change your mindset.
ii. Make a list of all expenses.
Do include a saving category in your budget.
3. Pay yourself first.
One of the secrets of most rich men is that they pay themselves first. They have decided that part of all they earn is theirs to keep. Not everything you earn entirely belongs to you because most of what you earn is already committed to your expenses. This means that when money comes into your account, make it a priority action to take some of that money and move it into an account where even you cannot touch it.
4. Spend less than you earn.
One of the most important principles to becoming wealthy is to spend less than you earn. This sound easy enough but in practice it can be hard to do.

I tell you, it may not seem important to so many but it is very important and effective. The categories are as follows, 50% should be reserved for essentials (Housing, Food and Clothing), 10% should be paid as tithe to God for the Christians which I strongly recommend for everyone. 20% should be allocated to other bills and ceremonies and the last 20% should go toward what we call "financial priorities" which is savings.
