This is one of my favorite Jim Rohn quotes, “Rich people have big libraries…poor people have big TVs.” Now that’s a bold statement? However, before getting offended, think about it. Do you spend more time/money reading and educating yourself or more time in front of the television?

Do you spend more money on books or big televisions, stereos and DVD’s? One thing that has always amazed me is when an individual will not bat an eye at getting a loan for $20,000 or $30,000 to purchase a new car or truck, yet choke on their tongue when they consider spending a smidgen of that amount for a monthly Smokin’ Security Marketing Newsletter subscription…what gives?
In the end, if you can establish a pattern of learning and continuing education, you’ll punch your own ticket and begin the trip to long-term wealth accumulation. Invest in yourself and education and make time for it. It will pay you back 100X over.
Another famous quote by Jim Rohn is…”Formal education will make you a living, self-education will make you a fortune.”
