Quote of the Day–Cindy Perman (03/15/2011)

Millionaires only have 24 hours in a day, just like the rest of us. What separates them from us is time management. While the rest of us go home and flop on the couch in front of the TV, the wealthy are reading and doing things that contribute to their success.

[Many people feel entitled to different things, from money to property, to services.  They look at millionaires and say they got rich by stealing from the poor.  While some, such as Madoff certainly did exactly that most make their fortune by working their ass off.

The government runs much the same scheme as Madoff, except they require mandatory investment at the end of a gun.  They then call this scheme “Social Security”.  The government takes the excess income and instead of saving it for when the payouts will be greater than the input, they spend it elsewhere.

Many of us in America are working hard, constantly trying to get ahead.  While we’re busy trying to save money, our government is squandering what it does have and is now taking even more.   If you want more money, look in the mirror, it’s up to you to earn it.  Though with all of those who feel entitled to your money, it’s becoming harder to keep it after you earn it.  -B ]
