I came across a great quote from Ken Fisher, a self-made billionaire and ranks #281 on the 2008 Forbe 400 list of richest American.
I just bought his newest book: The Ten Roads to Riches: The Ways the Wealthy Got There (And How You Can Too!) (Fisher Investments Press).
Here is what Ken commented about the current economic crisis.
"Q: How can this book help those who fear the current economic problems paint a dismal future without opportunity?
A: By getting them to see that isn’t how those who get super rich think—they never really fret current conditions. They know long term future will be better than the past—but they choose not to wait, because that would only put them another year farther from their goal. And they know today is transitory anyway. The sooner you figure out the right road for you, the sooner your journey begins toward where you want to get to."
If you’re worried about layoffs, recession, and your future — stop worrying now. It won’t help you!!! It’s time to do something. It’ll not help if you just sit there and feel miserable. Swing the bat and do something about.
A crisis is also an opportunity.
