Andrew Carnegie as a poor immigrant that became the richest man of the world of his time-1890’s-1914 approximately. He was one of the founders of US Steel. He was a really big deal and great philanthropist. I was skimming some information about successful and wealthy people. Some of his business philosophies stood out.
- He believed in eternal optimism and claimed that trait alone made him millions! Now, I’m not saying all will be positive and sunshine. I tell my clients-there will be obstacles. You choose your attitude! Carnegie’s way of seeing the world was positive…good advice. Maybe we can become millionaires!
- Grab opportunities. He believed in getting it done now! I’m not saying cash in your IRA & play the stock market. In no way would I offer financial advice!Weigh risk vs. opportunity.
- Carnegie wasn’t a worrier. Problems never go away if you worry constantly. Keep the problem in perspective.
- I tell many of my clients to state an intention of a positive outcome. Then, break it down into bite-size pieces. No worrying.
