Advice on Wealth

This is not my personal advice on wealth. I am not qualified to give advice on wealth because obviously, I am not a wealthy person. I am just like any typical struggling citizen who 95% of the time is thinking how I can make extra income to help pay our bills.

This advice came from Warren Buffet and not from me. But I want to share it here to remind me [in particular] that life is what I make it and of course, so that I will not forget.

These advices are simple and no non-sense. These are just simple things to live by to make life live-able and worry-free. These are just practical rules that we already know but always forget to do.


Warren's advice to young people: "Stay away from credit cards and invest in yourself and Remember:

A. Money doesn't create man; it is the man who created money.
B. Live your life as simple as you can.
C. Don't do what others say, just listen to them, but do what you feel good.
D. Don't go for brand name; just wear those things in which you feel comfortable.
E. Don't waste your money on unnecessary things; just spend on those who really are in need.
F. After all it's your life so why give chance to others to rule your life."

And his idea of excellence is something that we need to ponder too. "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's Business"

Life is indeed a challenge. Life is a constant struggle to achieve what is good. Life is what we make it. Let's make the best out of it. Cheers!
