Be brutal on the money – it doesn’t come easy. Saving money or the saving habit is the foundation of all financial success. As Warren Buffet put it – Do not depend on a single income, don’t buy compulsively and do not save what is left after spending, spend what is left after saving or investing.
Take action and just do it. If you have an idea that you really believe in, do something about it. Unless you take action, your idea will remain worthless.
Soar with the eagles that fly high. Get rid of toxic elements and mix with the right people. If you want to succeed you have to spend your time with positive, happy people – the big thinkers and achievers.
Be different. Challenge the status quo, get out of your comfort zone, do things differently and stretch your abilities. Stretching your abilities will make you great.
NEVER SURRENDER. If you keep moving and never give up, you will always arrive at where you want to be.
