Full Responsibility

One of the more helpful habits I've developed is taking responsibility for everything in my life. This is a strong contrast to the average victim / "things happen to me" mentality that a lot of people have.

Basically I assume that anything "bad" that happens in my life is a direct result of actions I took. If I lose money in the stock market I don't think, "Oh man... I'm so unlucky... the stocks went down."

Instead I think, "I bought those stocks and I lost money because of a decision I made."

Spent four years turning $500 into $35,000 in high school and lost it. Love the pain.

On Striving For Happiness

Since I was a kid, I’ve always dreamed big. Surely you have daydreamed of becoming a doctor, corporate lawyer, renowned author or politician, right??

I used to dream about wealth and power. However, as I mature I dream about wealth and living the most fulfilling life possible. You must ask yourself, how much do you want something? Nearly everyone I know wants to obtain great wealth and live a happy life. However, most people rarely put forth much effort into attaining either. In the end the amount of effort you exert will come back to you. Sure, there is some variance, some people will stumble upon great opportunities while others may have to work harder, but overall those who strive for excellence perform better.
