“So along the way, we often have this arrival fallacy; I got to focus on the end, can’t be happy till the end. And, I want to encourage you to celebrate these moments, that we’re about to share with you.”
“You can get positive momentum and build wealth, meaning you have enough money, that there’s a difference between what you earn and what you spend, that you can build wealth and pay down your debts or invest; that is a moment worth celebrating because for many of us.”
“Once you are consumer debt-free, and you have an emergency fund that has at least three months; that’s a huge, huge milestone. The majority of your peers are not there. So, if you get there really celebrate that one, because you are already going to be leaps and bounds above your peers.”
