“It’s your aptitude, not just your attitude that determines your ultimate altitude.”
Zig is the man! Known for his classic sayings and permanently applicable wisdom in the sales and motivational field, I never get tired of reading this guy’s books, and watching his talks. This quote really hit me today for a simple reason…I just wrote a post about how the rules are changing. Creating wealth is a new game…everyone in any investing arena will tell you nothing that worked two years ago works today. Not only are people changing their game plans, they’re changing their entire portfolios around.
I’m a huge advocate of investment real estate and other real assets like gold and silver. I’ve never personally understood financials; investing in the stock market would be purely gambling for me. If you don’t understand what you’re buying, it IS gambling btw. The reason I mention this is because all of this change requires us to read…a lot. It requires us to network…a lot. We need to learn how to invest all over again.
As Zig Ziglar says, it’s your aptitude…just as much as your attitude that matters. I think we have a ton of things to be positive about. There is huge opportunity to create wealth in today’s market. But it cannot be empty positivity. That just won’t get the job done. It’s one of the huge reasons I started this site. There’s a lot to talk about. There’s a lot we can learn from each other. There’s a LOT of work to be done and a LOT of new rules to learn and internalize. With wealth comes responsibility. I guess that means it’s time for me to stop writing and get back to work…
