One of the most common reasons is because people are not happy with small starts and small results.
The Bible tells a story about how faith the size of a mustard seed that can move mountains. Others have heard the story of the mighty oak tree coming from the tiny acorn. A common savings plan making the rounds is the 52-week savings plan that requires participants to save one dollar for each week of the year. This that on the first week of the year, one dollar is saved and on the fifty-second week of the year, fifty-two dollar are saved. Over the course of the year, almost $1,350 is saved.
