I've been trying to find some sort of common trait or pattern that exists in people who tend to have a lot more money than others and how they came across it.
Outside of the Internet, in my personal life, I only know of 3 multi-millionaires on a first name basis. 2 of which I have recently lost contact with.
All 3 come from COMPLETELY different backgrounds. And all got rich doing COMPLETELY different things.
One of them grew up as a door to door salesman and now runs a telemarketing company.
One of them got into real estate and now owns a wine vineyard.
One of them started out importing/exporting goods and now owns a manufacturing company in China.
If you were to meet these 3 people, you'd see how all their personalities are all different from one another.
To this day, I still remember what each of them told me about how they achieved their wealth.
One of them said, "There's no secret, I just knew. It's also really important to trust people. Without trusting others, you won't succeed."
Another said, "Vocabulary. I became a master of my field and knew all the terminology inside and out."
The last one said, "Simple. I know how to sell and I'm not afraid to do it."
I love profound words or quotes. Let's step away from all the published authors and gurus for one second and take a look at the real people we personally know (perhaps that's even you) that have achieved great wealth.
What quotes or ideas can you share that have come from people you personally know?
