Normally I’m not one to share inspirational / how-to-be-successful articles (I find most of them cheesy), but I like Mark Cuban’s plain-talking straightforward views.
I also admire how he was pretty much just like any of us. A struggling student, didn’t get the best of grades, and goofed off with his friends most of the time.
I particularly like this:
“1. Recognize that its ok to live like a student.
It doesn’t matter where you live. It doesn’t matter how you live. It doesn’t matter what kind of car you drive. It doesn’t matter what kind of clothes you wear. It doesn’t matter. Your biggest enemies are your bills. The more you owe, the more you stress. The more you stress over bills, the more difficult it is to focus on your goals. More importantly, if you set your monthly income requirements too high, you eliminate a significant number of opportunities. The cheaper you can live, the greater your options. Remember that.”
