It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes creativity. It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes hard work.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes tenacity.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes a bit of obstinance.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes insight.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes charisma.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes gratitude.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes professionalism.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes resourcefulness.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes accountability.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes an obsession with learning.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes class.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes individualism.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes indefatigability.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes discipline.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes giving crazy amounts of value.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes insane amounts of effort.

It doesn’t take money to create money. It takes failure.

It doesn’t just take money to create money.

The idea that the only thing you need to make money is money is a huge lie.

That belief is stopping you from getting started on things that will help catapult you towards where you want to be.

Make no mistake, money can be a catalyst for rapid growth. But it can also cover up a bunch of mistakes.

When you have to think about how you spend each dollar, you’re more imaginative. You aren’t subscribing automatically to the status quo. The status quo is too expensive. You’re subscribing to your own brand of awesome.

You’re doing things the other people call crazy and ridiculous. But you’re doing it because you don’t have enough money to make it work otherwise.

And that’s the magic of being successful without money.

What you have to go through and who you have to become ultimately creates the success you so desperately want for yourself.

Stop thinking that you can’t be successful until you are already successful. With that thinking, you’ll never get close.

Right now, your life is a test lab of opportunity. The trials in your life are a kaleidoscope of potential. What you are going through is “that special thing” that can make everything from this moment forward legendary.

You don’t need money. You just need the tenacity to keep moving forward.
