Warren Buffett is one of the richest people on the planet – and a lovely guy as well, who’s committed most of his wealth to charity.
Here are five quotes from the man himself that will help you get richer.
“I always knew I was going to be rich. I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute.”
What gave him this certainty? Well, one reason is he developed a highly valuable income producing skill – evaluating shares and investing in them.
If you develop a very valuable skill that’s in high demand, the market will reward you for it.
“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”
Do you know what happens to people who always say yes?
They end up shouldering more burdens than they can handle – with not enough time for what’s most important.
Buffett says no because he’s saving the yeses for things that create the most wealth and add the most value.
“The business schools reward difficult complex behavior more than simple behavior, but simple behavior is more effective.”
Don’t distrust the simple strategies. They can be much more effective – and easy to put into action – than the more complex ideas.
“Don’t save what is left after spending, spend what is left after saving.”
Always put money towards your future before you take care of the present. Your future self will thank you.
“In the world of business, the people who are most successful are those who are doing what they love.”
If you don’t have passion for what you do, what’s going to motivate you to keep pushing?
Follow Buffett’s advice and you will get richer faster.
