  1. Often in the real world, it’s not the smart that get ahead but the bold.
  2. Brilliance decides one’s future much more than school grades.
  3. Investing is not buying. It’s more a case of knowing.
  4. Intelligent people are those who work with or hire a person who is more intelligent than they are.
  5. It is what you know that is your greatest wealth; it is what you do not know that is your greatest risk.
  6. There is always a risk, so learn to manage risk instead of avoiding it.
  7. The world is filled with smart, talented, educated and gifted people who may be one skill away from great wealth.
  8. Financial Intelligence is a synergy of accounting, investing, marketing and law.
  9. it is far better to know a little about a lot than to know a lot about a little.
  10. Rather than seek greater specialization, Why not seek to ‘learn’ more than “earn”. In the short term, it may earn you less. In the long term, it will pay off in large dividends.
  11. Arrogance – is ego plus ignorance. What I know makes me money. What I don’t know loses me money. Every time, I have been arrogant, I have lost money. Because when I’m arrogant, I truly believe that what I don’t know is not important. Many people use arrogance to try to hide their ignorance.
  12. Listening is more important than talking, that is why we have 2 ears but one mouth.
  13. Whenever I feel that people aren’t smiling at me, I simply begin smiling and saying hello, and like magic, there are suddenly more smiling people around me. It is true that your world is only a mirror of you.
  14. There are powers in this world that are much smarter than we are. You can get there on your own, but it’s easier with the help of the powers that be. All you need is to be generous with what you have, and the powers will be generous with you.
  15. It’s not so much what you know anymore that counts in today’s fast changing world, because often what you know is old. It is how fast you learn.
  16. It is what is in your head that determines what is in your hands. Money is only an idea. There is a great book called ‘Think and Grow Rich”. The title is not ‘work Hard and Grow Rich’. Learn to have money work hard for you and your life will be easier and happier.
  17. Today, don’t play it safe; play it smart.

  1. All true! When I’ve followed those rules, I’ve done better. I just finished a job that didn’t pay the best, but I learned a lot. I worked there for some years and now I was able to get a much better job that pays a lot more. I also notice it is teaching me a lot. And so it goes. Don’t ever stop learning.
