“The power of “can’t”: The word “can’t” makes strong people weak, blinds people who can see, saddens happy people, turns brave people into cowards, robs a genius of their brilliance, causes rich people to think poorly, and limits the achievements of that great person living inside us all.” -Robert Kiyosaki

“The eagerness to spend more casually and live a noticeably rich lifestyle gets more intense with each generation. Put simply, earning a dollar yourself tends to make a person a little more cognizant about how that dollar is spent.” -Natalie Schmook

“No man can become rich without himself enriching others.” -Andrew Carnegie

“Most people want to get rich quick. That’s why they never get rich.” -Robert Kiyosaki

“As an employee, there’s really only one way to get rich. You must first make your boss richer… and the only way to do that is to make the company much more profitable.

…begin as an ordinary employee and become an extraordinary employee. And after you’ve accomplished that, you become an invaluable employee.”

-Mark Ford

The additional side benefit of becoming an invaluable employee:  you would most likely be the last employee to be fired or let go if things get tough.  If you are invaluable, your company needs you.

“Commercial banks operated on sound classical principles. It’s a different story these days. Central banks and commercial banks are essentially Ponzi schemes, and engines of inflation. It’s a major reason the rich are getting richer—which is OK, except that today it’s at the expense of the middle class.” -Doug Casey

“It is only by following your deepest instinct that you can lead a rich life, and if you let your fear of consequence prevent you from following your deepest instinct, then your life will be safe, expedient, and thin.” -Katharine Butler Hathaway

“Many Americans – average folks working to build a comfortable life – assume the ‘rich’ have a secret.  It seems they know something about ‘how the world works’ that the rest of us don’t….  It turns out, the wealthy do harbor a secret – three of them, in fact….  And these secrets not only build wealth, they allow you to use it to live the life that you want to live….

You don’t need to be rich, though.  You don’t need to pursue money at all costs.  But having financial stability gives you freedom.  Reducing stress improves your health.  And understanding how to manage your income makes for better relationships with your family and loved ones.

Tenet No. 1: Save Religiously.  Tenet No. 2: Invest for the Long Term.  Tenet No. 3: Obsess About Risk

Only by following all three of these tenets can you successfully set yourself free from living paycheck to paycheck.  If you were to find folks with enough cash to live how they’d want to live, you’d find almost all of them followed these tenets.” -David Eifrig

“You need more than a high income to be wealthy.  It’s amazing how many people, young and old, don’t understand this.  Too many folks equate making ‘mucho dinero’ with being rich….  A big income can give you a great lifestyle. But if you’re spending it as fast as you’re making it, when you stop working, or when a financial emergency arises, you’ll very quickly find out how un-rich you really are.  If you want to become wealthy—in terms of having lots of money put away for a rainy day or money to spend after you stop working for it—you are going to have to learn how to save and invest a significant portion of your income.” -Mark Ford

“Remember…the average rich person has seven sources of income.  While the average poor person has one source of income.  The only way to avoid being crushed financially is to diversify your income sources so no one person can destroy you.” -James Altucher
