Cut Loose From People

You have to cut loose to get rich. There isn't any other way. Cut loose from parents and family, obviously. Loose from working for others, except as a short-term reconnaissance expedition and in order to raise a fraction of the capital you will eventually require. And loose from negative influences - those naysayers and Jeremiahs who cover the face of the earth.

These wretchers will tell you, if you listen, of the impossibility - and the foolishness - of trying to make yourself richer than they are. In doing so, they can drain confidence and optimism from you. Surprisingly, such people may include your family, your lover, your husband or wife, or your friends.

It's not that they do not care about you; they may well do. But two fears confront them: they (openly) fear you are placing yourself in harm's way, which cannot be a good thing; and their own timidity. Above all, they do not wish to be faced with the messy chaos that accompanies strenuous effort and risk. They yearn for the familiarity and sense of false security conjured by the status quo.

This is why you must cut loose. Getting rich comes from attitude of mind. It isn't going to happen if things drift on pretty much the way they are right now.

  4. AGreed, but I don't think you necessarily have to abandon them. Maybe just steel yourself or show such an adamant resolve that they'll understand you and let you do your thing.

  16. I've never really understood the media perception of family as a dependable source of comfort or advice. In the end, everyone are just individuals. Your family are just people who share the same genetics as you.

    Just because they're your "mother/father" doesn't mean they provide good advice or know what you're like. I myself have families and relatives that I consider stupid and ineligible for a proper intelligent discussion.
