Wealth Without a Job Quotes
“A so-called side business can offer benefits far beyond the income that it produces. Some of these benefits are:
- It can be a prudent first step toward a full-time business of your own.
- It can increase your job satisfaction by reducing dependency on your job.
- It can be a risk-free way to learn a new occupation.
- It can be a way to discover if you would enjoy some new occupation.
- It can be a way to grow and expand your mind, discover your true potential and who you really are.”

“Most people discover that business ownership is very, very different from employment. In a job your success depends on how good you are at what you do; in your own business your success depends on how good you are at business. With a job there is someone to tell you what to do and someone to motivate you.”
“People who earn lots of money from work they do not enjoy experience dissatisfaction because the money is never enough. They may face credit card problems from attempts to find in consumption the satisfaction missing at work. Yet people who enjoy their work but who earn so little that they are continually beset by financial problems sooner or later find that the problems overwhelm the enjoyment.”
“School produces expectations of a job. In school other people made goals for you. In school other people told you what time to do things. Schools have a well-defined measurement system, and someone else lets you know how you are doing. On tests all you must do is pick out the correct answer from alternatives offered (rather than creating your own solutions).”
“We decorate our homes and our bodies in ways that please us. Why not decorate your mind (your internal reality) in ways that please you? In ways that move you ahead, in ways that make your work more meaningful than merely making money, in ways that bring forth personal resources that you may not be aware of at this point?”
“Wealth is voluntary. You have to sign up.”

“Wealthy people are good for the economy. They pay most of the taxes and make most of the charitable contributions. If you have need of a job, surely you wouldn’t ask a poor person to hire you.”
“Wealthy people do not rely on luck. Less than 2 percent of American millionaires have inherited trust funds, and even a smaller percentage has won lotteries.”
“Wealthy people don’t work for money. Rather, they develop a self-benefiting mind-set about money and receiving and do work that suits them, motivated by their sense of accomplishment and service.”
“Wealthy people take prudent risks. Poor people tend to be dominated by fear of loss or fear of making a mistake, so they rarely take risks. Poor people seem to be willing to settle for the misperceived safety of enduring struggle.”
“Wealthy people take responsibility. They do not blame their financial situation on themselves or anyone or anything else. Instead, they take the steps necessary to change their own thinking and behavior to move ahead.”
