Mark Cuban’s path to becoming rich.

This is pretty cool. I don’t think it’s a how-to. It’s a how to put yourself in a position to win/succeed. This is a safe and secure plan for anyone.

This personal spending stuff really hits a nerve with me. I’m not a consumerist, but if you asked me to spend $100 on a dinner I’m going to crap out 2 hrs later, I’m in. If you ask me to buy something for $100 that can make more than $100 tomorrow, I don’t. I think it has to do w/ the small transaction amount. I can’t get rich on a $100, but when you think about it $100 a week is $5,200 per year. I bet half of America does not have that in a savings account. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big advocate of enjoying your life. My parents were immigrants. All the Greeks we know lived poor and died rich. That bothers me.

Here are some of Mark’s quotes that struck a cord with me.

“Getting there requires being ready when opportunity presents itself.”

If you don’t think you’ve missed opportunities, you’re crazy. People miss opportunities mainly b/c they’re either afraid, don’t believe in themselves or have an ego that gets in the way of succeeding. We’ve all had opportunities and there will be more, if you’re present enough to see them.

He ends w/:

“The question is whether you have the discipline to be ready when it happens for you ?

If you do, you will find out what it feels like to get lucky.” Most of it is luck. You can’t get lucky if you’re not in the right place at the right time, with some money in your pocket.

“Here are some other quotes I found interesting.

IMHO, change and uncertainty create opportunity. Times like we are facing now, with complete financial uncertainty are perfect times to start on the road to getting ahead financially.

Always remember this. If a deal is a great deal, they aren’t going to share it with you.

Save your money. Save as much money as you possibly can. Every penny you can. Instead of coffee, drink water. Instead of going to McDonald’s, eat Mac and Cheese. Cut up your credit cards. If you use a credit card, you don’t want to be rich. The first step to getting rich is having cash available

Booms are when the smart people sell. Busts are when rich people started on their path to wealth.

When everyone was following the crowd, they kept on saving their money and avoiding the temptation of groupthink.”
