1.Stop trading time for money

“ You’re already a financial trader. You might not think of it in just this way, but if you work for a living, you’re trading your time for money. Frankly, it’s just about the worst trade you can make. Why? You can always get more money, but you can’t get more time.”

2. Anticipate

“ Remember this: Anticipation is the ultimate power. Losers react; leaders anticipate.”

3. Learn how to master money

“ You either master money, or, on some level, money masters you.”

4. Work smart

“ Let’s face it, we’re not about to earn our way to wealth. That’s a mistake millions of Americans make. We think that if we work harder, smarter, longer, we’ll achieve our financial dreams, but our pay check alone—no matter how big—isn’t the answer.”

5. Don’t tolerate excuses

“Remember: we all get what we tolerate. So stop tolerating excuses within yourself, limiting beliefs of the past, or half-assed or fearful states.”

6. Change your mindset

“You have to make the shift from being a consumer in the economy to becoming an owner—and you do it by becoming an investor.”

7. Prepare to change

“ Change your story, change your life. Divorce the story of limitation, and marry the story of the truth and everything changes.”

9. Learn from successful people

“ People who succeed at the highest level are not lucky; they’re doing something differently than everyone else.”

10. Rethink about your expenses

“ At the end of the day, the question to ask yourself is this: do your expenses, big and small, bring you the thrill they once did? ”

11. Set goals 

“ The secret to unleashing your true power is setting goals that are exciting enough that they truly inspire your creativity and ignite your passion.”

12. Act

“ What good is inspiration if it’s not backed up by action? ”

13. Learn to solve problems

“ Realise that if you can instantly create a problem, you can just as quickly and easily create a solution.”

14. You are losing out

“As a species, we’re not only wired to choose today over tomorrow, but we hate to feel like we’re losing out on something. If we feel like we’re losing something we avoid it, we won’t do it. That’s why so many people don’t save and invest. Saving sounds like you’re giving something up, you’re losing something today. But you’re not. ”
