“Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.” – Satchel Paige
“You’re too young to be thinking about starting a business!”
“C’mon man! You are too old to start that business! You have work tomorrow anyways.”
Have you ever heard these statements being told to you or someone you know?
Pisses you off doesn’t it?
These are a few of the dumbest statements I have ever heard. And I can bet my last dollar that the only people who say that are broke people.
Let me tell you a fact that I have experienced. I have told a few people in the past few years that I was working towards building wealth through investments and businesses. The ones who told me that I was too young to be thinking about that are:
2. STILL Broke!
Those who have congratulated me, pushed me, and motivated me are wealthy or are working towards wealth themselves.
No matter when you decide to start a business or start building wealth, simple-minded people will always be around to tell you that you are too young or too old. Yet, they are the ones who are living paycheque to paycheque with a boss half their age that can fire them at any moment.
Don’t listen to these sheep…
The only thing you should learn from them is that their life is a life that you do NOT want.
Time and time again, you realize who is around you and how they think. You tell them that you don’t have any cash to go partying because you had to invest in a company’s stock and see the look they give you. You are practically speaking a foreign language!
While you are focused on taking care of your future kids, these adults are focused on living out their childish fantasies before they’re too old. Just so they have something to talk about while they are in their 50’s trying to figure out whether or not they will be able to retire off of their embarrassing pension or if they’ll be working until 75.
I urge my readers, the best time to start a business and to change your future is RIGHT NOW.
If you think you are getting by now, 10 years from now, you will practically be in poverty. There will be no middle-class, so do not work towards maintaining that. You will either be POOR or RICH. Choose rich.
Your offspring and the generations after you are depending on YOU.
What are you doing to make sure that they are more well-off and comfortable than you are right now?
I haven’t posted in a while but that is because I have been doing a lot and learning a lot. The guy that started this website isn’t the same. As I grow, the content will change and grow as well.
I hope that you will continue to grow with me.
Until next time,
Live Long and Prosperous.
