You’re already a financial trader. You might not think of it in just this way, but if you work for a living, you’re trading your time for money. Frankly, it’s just about the worst trade you can make. Why? You can always get more money, but you can’t get more time.
Remember this: Anticipation is the ultimate power. Losers react; leaders anticipate.
You either master money, or, on some level, money masters you
Let’s face it, we’re not about to earn our way to wealth. That’s a mistake millions of Americans make. We think that if we work harder, smarter, longer, we’ll achieve our financial dreams, but our paycheck alone—no matter how big—isn’t the answer.
You have to make the shift from being a consumer in the economy to becoming an owner—and you do it by becoming an investor.
Change your story, change your life. Divorce the story of limitation, and marry the story of the truth and everything changes.
Remember: Rewards come in action, not in discussion.
The fact is: You are not a manager of circumstance, you’re the architect of your life’s experience.
Remember: we all get what we tolerate. So stop tolerating excuses within yourself, limiting beliefs of the past, or half-assed or fearful states.
People who succeed at the highest level are not lucky; they’re doing something differently than everyone else.
At the end of the day, the question to ask yourself is this: do your expenses, big and small, bring you the thrill they once did?
And always remember the ultimate truth: life is not about money, it’s about emotion.
