One of the reasons that millionaires are economically successful is that they think differently.
Good health, longevity, happiness, a loving family, self-reliance, fine friends … if you [have] five, you’re a rich man….
It matters less how much more you make than what you do with what you already have.
Whatever your income, always live below your means.
Money should never change one’s values…. Making money is only a report card. It’s a way to tell how you’re doing.
Wealth is more often the result of a lifestyle of hard work, perseverance, planning, and, most of all, self-discipline.
Don’t chase money. If you are the best in your field, money will find you.
Operate your household like a productive business.
It’s amazing what you can do when you set your mind to it. You’ll be surprised how many sales calls you can make when you have no alternative except to succeed.
Be tough … life is. In other words, there is no promise of a rose garden.
If you make a good income each year and spend it all, you are not getting wealthier. You are just living high. Wealth is what you accumulate, not what you spend.
Great offense and poor defense translate into under accumulation of wealth.
If you’re not yet wealthy but want to be someday, never purchase a home that requires a mortgage that is more than twice your household’s total annual realized income.
The foundation stone of wealth accumulation is defense, and this defense should be anchored by budgeting and planning.
