An editorial by a rich guy, about what separates rich people from everyone else. Â Very informative, and uncomfortably likely to be true in most respects.
Consider carefully this shortlist:
If you are unwilling to fail, sometimes publicly, and even catastrophically, you stand little chance of ever getting rich. If you care what the neighbours think, you will never get rich. If you cannot bear the thought of causing worry to your family, spouse or lover while you plough a lonely, dangerous road rather than taking the safe option of a regular job, you will never get rich. If you have artistic inclinations and fear that the search for wealth will coarsen such talents, you will never get rich. (Because your fear, in this instance, is well justified.) If you are not prepared to work longer hours than almost anyone you know, despite the jibes of colleagues and friends, you are unlikely to get rich. If you cannot convince yourself that you are â€œgood enoughâ€ to be rich, you will never get rich. If you cannot treat your quest to get rich as a game, you will never be rich. If you cannot face up to your fear of failure, you will never be rich.
