Randy Gage wrote these in a series of tweets over a couple of days. They are powerful and if you let them, can change your thinking and mindset. Randy was kind enough to allow me to post them here. Sample some of my favorites.
You’re not poor because you don’t have money. You’re poor if you don’t have a dream
Governments do not create prosperity. At best, they facilitate it. Usually, they squander it.
You can watch five to six hours of television a day, or you can be rich, but you can’t do both.
If you don’t invest in yourself, it’s probably a pretty bad investment for anyone else.
Poverty is not the absence of money and material things; it is a mindset.
Build your own dream instead of borrowing the dreams of others.
