“Once you overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles, other hurdles become less daunting.” -Howard Schultz

It is easy to be poor, no matter how much money one makes.  What most don’t realize, the inverse is just as true; it’s hard to be wealthy no matter how much money one makes.  Why?  There seems to be a natural reflex to spend according to what is earned.  Anyone who can overcome this reflex has overcome one of the greatest temptations of life.

“Nothing will ever be attempted, if all possible objections must be first overcome.” -Samuel Johnson
