“Create your own life.” –James Altucher


“Here’s a chart based on research from the Economic Policy Institute that describes the problem. As you can see, productivity in this country grew nearly 250% between 1948 and 2014, but median wages only grew 109%…You’ll also notice that the divergence begins around 1971… the year President Nixon removed the U.S. dollar from gold.

Why? Because paper money doesn’t transmit gains in productivity like real, sound money should.

In short, when the dollar was unlinked from gold, the government was granted the ability to create unlimited amounts of new money. But this money doesn’t flow to everyone equally. It is created in the banks, and then works its way through the financial system before eventually trickling down through the real economy. The result is that asset and consumer prices have risen far faster than wages.” -Justin Brill

“When you borrow money two things usually happen.  First, you’re taking capital that others saved in the past, and are probably using for consumption, not to create more wealth.  And second, you’re mortgaging your future, which makes you a serf when you have to pay it back.” -Doug Casey

“It’s how you live your life each day that determines how you create a lifetime.” –James Altucher

“There is no greater financial cliché than the poor man who builds a fortune only to discover that he lost everything that was really important to him….  You have to create goals that mesh with the person you truly want to be.” -Mark Ford

“Stillness ultimately creates, Doing often destroys.” -James Altucher

“Everyone has something they wanted to create when they were kids….  Sit down and do the who, what, where, when, why, and how today.  Those six words are my best friends right now.  They are my best friends every day because they get stronger and stronger….  Then that secret buried inside can be delivered.” -James Altucher

“You must take responsibility for your future finances and well-being.  This is not something you can just agree to.  You have to review what you’ve done in the past and make a serious personal commitment to change.  After that, you have to curtail your spending, manage your money, and allocate your investments wisely.  Then you must create a plan to increase your income.” -Mark Ford
