The Path To Financial Freedom Is Not A Fairytale
We live in a society designed to ensure the poor remains poor, and the rich to remain rich. To climb up from the bottom class to the middle class, what one needs is to work hard. But to climb up from the middle class to the top of the middle class or the upper class, one not only needs to work hard, but also work smart.
To do that, one needs to see the reality for what it is. Not a fanciful bed of roses, not a fairytale story where everyone is kind and nice. See the world for what it is - harsh, competitive and often times dark. Face it, accept it, learn the rules of the game and know how to play it well, within the legal and moral boundaries. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Without discipline there can be no success. Do what you need to, consistently and persistently, even if you do not feel like it.
There can be no change without sacrifice. To get what others do not have, you have to do what others could not do.
Rome is not built in a day. Bit by bit, accumulate your wealth. Do not give up till you reach your goal.
Dreams are what keep you going on when things get tough. Always remember your dreams and goals.
