You shouldn’t look for answers in people who have left you.
There are no revelations there. No guides. No fulfillment’s of any kind.
You’re not going to find a map to paradise in these people.
You’re going to find confusion and a lot more questions, perhaps even more than you can handle.
And I know people change, that is if they want to but why give in?
Why trust who has broken you before?
I mean, people live and sometimes they have the nerve to come back but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to let them back in.
You don’t have to.
You owe it to yourself to be happy.
Besides look at you now, you’re a goddam superstar and in their absence you have found more of yourself and your smile.
You’re stronger and to be honest, you don’t need to spiral around the bulls*** their universe brings.
You don’t need people who have hurt you to convince you of how beautiful you are.
You’re a flower, and you don’t drown the moment the rain starts falling down.

The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy

One of my biggest misconceptions growing up was money.  I never had enough of it.  I thought it was because I was not rich or did not know how to make it like a Bill Gates or Mark Cuban.  I always hoped to win the lottery in spite of the odds.  I thought I would be happy, once I was financially wealthy.

Then I read this book, The Millionaire Next Door.  It was not what I expected.  It was very simple how the majority of people become wealthy and happy.  So simple infact I made it my occupation and teach it daily to my clients.

The bestselling The Millionaire Next Door identifies seven common traits that show up again and again among those who have accumulated wealth. Most of the truly wealthy in this country don’t live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue-they live next door. This new edition, the first since 1998, includes a new foreword for the twenty-first century by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley.
