A self-made billionaire, who died back in the sixties, made the following statement in an interview when asked: “What advice or recommendations would you give to people out there seeking a better way of life?”
He said, “Son, I’ve established hundreds of corporations in my life and made billions of dollars. I found that it’s not difficult to be successful. There are only two things that are required.
First of all, you must decide exactly what it is that you want to accomplish. (Most people never take that step of deciding exactly what it is they want in life.) The second thing that you have to do, is to determine the price you have to pay to accomplish exactly what it is that you want. Then you must resolve to pay that price and to make the sacrifices that are necessary to accomplish it. This is all you have to do—determine what you want and then resolve to pay the price to get it.”
