“You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is, but it’s there,
like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.”
- Morpheus, from the Matrix
Dear FutureMoneyTrends.com Member,
If you want to learn to be a millionaire, learn from a millionaire. I look at my friend Marin Katusa, who I have no doubt will be a billionaire one day, and if you look at who he surrounds himself with, who mentors him, and who invests with him, it’s billionaires or people very close to it.
For most people, their financial education comes from people who are broke. These aren’t bad people. We are talking about loving, well-intentioned people, like parents, teachers, and friends. Thanks to the Internet, though, you can now have instant access to some of the best minds in the world.
I remember in 2012, I took a road trip from southern California to Seattle, Washington, and plugged in my ear were Warren Buffet and Rick Rule, just speech after speech and interview after interview. That’s the good news; nothing out there is really a secret anymore, it’s just a matter of who you decide to listen to.
I think everyone reading this should spend at least 30 minutes a day reading the work of someone who is a success in whatever it is you enjoy or are trying to achieve for yourself. In addition to reading, listen to podcasts, watch YouTube videos, and audio books by those same types of people.
Take a good look at the 5 people you hang out with the most, because you’re the average. If you’ve got negative people, friends with a broke mindset, cut them loose. Surround yourself with positive people, and attach yourself to winners!
Learn from the people that share your values and goals. Take what you put into your head and the people you listen to very seriously, because you don’t want to find yourself settling for average. In 10 years, average will be poor in this country.
