  • “Win in your mind and you will win in your reality”.
    winning in mind doesn’t take much effort but winning in reality does take a lot and lots of effort. So it would be appropriate if the quote was Win in your mind first then plan and work smart on your game and you will eventually win in reality.

  • The worst advice I ever received isn’t fit for this column, but one one that is was “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” It was especially bad because it came from adults I was prone to trust without further qualification such as “Do you really know that?” Later, I read, “Put all your eggs into one basket, then watch the basket” from the book “Creating Wealth” by Robert Allan and followed it. Even if it’s just a reasonable estimate of one’s probability of success or failure, and by how much, it’s much better because it will accommodate your plan of action and the other one won’t.

  • When I was struggling to start my own business, somebody thought they were being kind by suggesting I went back to doing a normal job like he was. I met him again twenty years later, and boy am I glad I did not follow his advice 🙂 🙂

  • Unfortunately, it was given by my parents

    “you was born poor and you have to accept that you will die poor”
