“‘Switching teams’ requires two things: 1) admitting you are wrong, and then 2) wholeheartedly embracing the new ‘correct’ thinking…. Switching teams requires a unique combination of humility and (oddly enough) confidence.

So my personal differentiator between ‘smart’ and ‘truly brilliant’ is simple: It’s how quickly you are willing to switch teams when you are proven wrong….

Changing your mind isn’t a loss… In fact, it can make you that much better and more effective at what you do. But it takes both guts and wisdom to understand that.” -Steve Sjuggerud

“If you want to have a better life, fill it with good days. The best way to do that is to organize your day according to your personal priorities and do the most important things first.

It’s easy to do, yet most people don’t….

Doing first things first is a very simple discipline. But its transformative power is immense. It can change your life—literally overnight.” -Mark Ford

“Your level of success will seldom exceed your level of personal development.” -Jim Rohn

“Thanks to Google, Facebook, and all the other data-gathering operations being run out of Silicon Valley, children born in the last decade will have no concept of privacy.

These companies will record, monitor, and track every single thing they do online. The word ‘privacy’ will be a meaningless term to them….

These Silicon Valley giants gather mindboggling amounts of highly personal data on their 4 billion combined users.

They then hawk it to advertisers… and even pass it on to the National Security Agency (NSA), via court-approved electronic eavesdropping programs….

Every traditional digital financial transaction you’ve ever made – credit card payments, bank transfers, even ATM withdrawals – has been tracked, stored, and monitored.”

“You must take personal control of your wealth… The best part is that it doesn’t really matter how much you make. It only matters how much you save…” –David Eifrig

“Every minute you spend wanting money you didn’t earn is a minute wasted and a bad habit reinforced….  The lesson here is about opportunity… the first step in the path to wealth begins by recognizing that all wealth must be earned….  If you need more money, begin by taking personal responsibility for your financial future.” -Mark Ford

“Government debt is even worse.  Unlike most personal debt, it doesn’t go to the grave with the person who borrowed it.  It sticks around to burden the next generation – who got nothing from it.” -Bill Bonner
