4 clichés that stop you from becoming rich

(Also read "4 beliefs about shares that keep you from growing wealthy".)

The Money Show's Bruce Whitfield interviewed Warren Ingram, Financial Advisor at Galileo Capital, who discussed the following clichés that should not form part of your vocabulary if you’re to become wealthy:

  • Money can’t buy you happiness

  • A leopard can’t change its spots

  • Do what you love

  • I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it

Listen to the audio (scroll down) for more detail.

Money trouble destroys marriages and lives. It can be a source of very real stress. Money provides you with options. People with money tend to be healthier.

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor

If you give yourself a way out, you’ll take it. Saying you can’t change is a copout.

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor

I always wanted to be a game ranger. Then I met a few of them. At first I was envious, but now I understand it wouldn’t have made me money.

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor

Procrastination around money is a many-sided evil. Sit down and get at least one thing done. Otherwise you’re guaranteeing that you and your family are going nowhere.

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor
