Major Cause of Failure Number 12:
Uncontrolled desire for “something for nothing.” The gambling instinct drives millions of people to failure. Evidence of this may be found in a study of the Wall Street crash of ’29, during which millions of people tried to make money by gambling on stock margins.

1929, huh. We’ve seen some similar scenarios since then for sure. It looks so easy to jump in something that sounds so good. We don’t really need to know how it works. We just know that the guy told us if we put in some change, then we will get out some dollars. #31WarningSigns
It is high time to make decisions to control that desire. Let’s move forward with folks around us that make us smarter and aren’t trying to take advantage of our position. Let’s make sure due diligence is made when we are approaching decisions.
If we want something, it will cost something. Let’s count the cost.
On with your day people! And remember…
Go. Grow. Give.
