Wow! There are a lot of lofty goals expressed here!
I applaud your ambition, your energy, and your activity.
No doubt, all of you will achieve far greater success than
most people will ever dream is possible.
It’s good to have goals. It’s better to have written goals.
A long time ago, I wrote this:
“All I want is: all there is, and then some.”
It’s been a heluva ride, so far. But the goal has changed somewhat.
Now it’s more about lifestyle than money. Once you have
enough free cash flow to do what you want, anything extra
doesn’t really change your lifestyle very much.
Your time becomes much more important to you.
Time is the only resource that you can’t ever replace.
I just want to be able to do whatever I want to do, whenever I want to do it,
without asking anyone’s permission, and without regard to costs.
It’s nice to be in the position so that if anyone ever tries to tell me what to do,
I can tell them to go to hell without worrying about the consequences.
That’s how I found freedom in an unfree world.
Doing the deals is still fun, however. So now I focus on helping my kids, my family,
and my friends achieve the same freedom I enjoy. I’m teaching them how to do
this business and invest for a good return.
It’s hard to describe the satisfaction that this brings.
It’s priceless, and it’s tax-free!
