“…the foremost rule is that you must take responsibility for your own life. Period,” -Norman Doidge

“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today” – Abraham Lincoln

“Persistence and self-reliance that are keys to professional success and building wealth over a lifetime….

Every bit of wealth you save earns you more freedom….

Taking responsibility means understanding where your money comes from, where it goes, and how to put it to work. And it means building up the kind of wealth that helps you sleep well at night and have the freedom to make the choices you want to make.”

-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

“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

“By taking responsibility for your current condition, you also assume responsibility for your future.  Nobody can change your fortune but you.  And nobody else will.” -Mark Ford

“Remember, wealth is a privilege and a responsibility. You must treat it with respect and discipline… or you will lose it.” -Mark Ford

The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life is the source from which self-respect springs.” -Joan Didion
