“The one thing I wish I had known in my 20’s…. EVERYTHING you think is important and meaningful has absolutely no bearing on your future life….   So the only thing I can with full integrity say I wish I had known is: nothing at all matters….  The main skill I got between my 20’s and now is that I bounce back from bad things faster….  Now I bounce back from bad things faster.  It’s freeing.  I go all out every day.  I throw myself into everything.  I cut what doesn’t work and I ignore the rules that keep me from doing what I know is possible.  And when I do everything works better for me.” -James Altucher


The billboard read, “Life is an adventure, take risks.”  Good advice but I would add a single word, calculated.  Take calculated risks and reduce risk when possible.

“Failure is the only possible result of a life that accepts the status quo.” -Joshua Chamberlein

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

If one thinks a thing is impossible, it becomes impossible.  As with most things in life, people fail to attempt many endeavors because they simply feel it is an impossibility.  When in reality, if they simply started, and continued with perseverance, they would find success.  Even if someone was not able to find an existing source for their private reserve of money, it can be developed through scheduled determination.  The possible begins with thinking it is possible, then producing and following a plan to make it happen.
