The last quote is my personal favorite! “Honesty is a very expensive gift? Do not expect it from cheap people.” Financial education is very important these days, hell, just financial common sense would be a great start. For the most part, the average person listens to their friends, family, or neighbors when it comes to advice. Advice for men, advice for dating, advice for socialization, advice for how to learn, and even advice for how to earn.
The only thing you need to succeed at anything is repetition. Hard work and determination with repetition and you’ll succeed at anything you set your mind to! If you want to be a plumber, spend time with plumbers and learn what they do and repeat. If you want to be a lawyer, spend time with lawyers, study and learn what they do and repeat. That model exists for any path we choose. If you want to be financially successful, study and spend time with financially successful people, learn what they do, how they do it, and repeat.
Once you have determined what path you want to take, what career you choose, what lifestyle you want to live, spend time with those that are doing what you want to do, learn how they do it, study what they do, and go repeat.
