“You are not just the average of the 5 people around you.  You are the average of the:  1) 5 habits you do, 2) 5 foods you eat, 3) 5 ideas you have, and 4) content you consume.” -James Altucher

“Debt is simply a way for you to own and control more than you can currently afford from your savings.  When you take on debt, you are agreeing to use future earnings to pay for something you want now.  In general, if it’s something consumed – like a car, clothes, or airplane tickets – all you’re doing is stealing from your future to satisfy your present desires or needs.  Eventually, it will not work.” -David Eifrig

Deceiving Looks

You’ve heard that looks can be deceiving.  Well, it also rings true in financial matters.  People can look rich because of the clothes they wear or the car they drive, but this could be as close to rich as they ever get.  The wealthy spend money on the things that make them more money, first; then with that money they purchase the finer things of life.  Those that only look rich spend money on items which consume their money and, as a result, are left with nothing but rags and rust.  Commit to becoming a person who becomes independently wealthy, not one who strives to look rich.
