“Begin somewhere; you cannot build a reputation on what you intend to do.” -Liz Smith

“The earlier you take steps to keep your brain strong, the longer you’ll delay any signs of decline….  One of the best ways to learn and keep your mind sharp is with financial literacy….  When we learn and use financial education, we use different parts of our brains. Learning the material uses regions in the temporal parietal area…. What they found was that the more financially literate a person, the stronger the connections.

Reading is an excellent way to build up our brain strength. It engages several parts of the brain at once, making stronger connections. That, in turn, helps you sharpen your decision-making process.” -Dr. David Eifrig

“Concentration is the most important thing. And I don’t think people can concentrate too well with all the distractions.”

“So how do we cancel out the noise? How do we build that concentration?”

“You can’t cancel the noise out.  You have to learn to concentrate with the world as it is. You can’t change the world. You have to find a way to focus your mind and your energies on concepts that interest you.” -Don McLean

“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” -Milton Berle

“We inherit our temperament, but we must build our own character.” -Unknown

“Many Americans – average folks working to build a comfortable life – assume the ‘rich’ have a secret.  It seems they know something about ‘how the world works’ that the rest of us don’t….  It turns out, the wealthy do harbor a secret – three of them, in fact….  And these secrets not only build wealth, they allow you to use it to live the life that you want to live….

You don’t need to be rich, though.  You don’t need to pursue money at all costs.  But having financial stability gives you freedom.  Reducing stress improves your health.  And understanding how to manage your income makes for better relationships with your family and loved ones.

Tenet No. 1: Save Religiously.  Tenet No. 2: Invest for the Long Term.  Tenet No. 3: Obsess About Risk

Only by following all three of these tenets can you successfully set yourself free from living paycheck to paycheck.  If you were to find folks with enough cash to live how they’d want to live, you’d find almost all of them followed these tenets.” -David Eifrig
