If you want to be rich, first stop being so frightened


Good quote: “If you are unwilling to fail, sometimes publicly, and even catastrophically, you stand little chance of ever getting rich.” Reminds me of this quote from Lazarus Long: “People who go broke in a big way never miss any meals. It is the poor jerk who is shy a half slug who must tighten his belt.”

As a bit of a pod who sometimes finds it all too easy to “turn off” my human concerns, and an on-again-off-again workaholic who was literally ridiculed by my friends for my study and work habits, I am very inspired by what he has to say.
