#1 – Secrets to Personal Financial Success: Take Personal Responsibility for Your Life

One of my favorite authors is the American Philosopher, James Allen, Author of “As a Man Thinketh”.  In one of his essays, Allen wrote “A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.”

In today’s world, it is easy to feel that we have no control over our own lives – but it’s not true.

There are some things that we cannot control, but we don’t have to let those things run our lives.

I meet with people who tell me that “I want to, but I just can’t.”  I want to save money, but I can’t.  I want to participate in the 401k, but I can’t.  On and on.

The truth is that you are in charge of your life and responsible for what you get out if it – in all areas.   Anything is possible.

Henry David Thoreau wrote:  “Man is the artificer of his own happiness.”

Where we are today is the direct result of all of our past actions.  Where we will be in the future will be the direct result of our actions from this point on.

This is the first step to financial success.
