Transcript:

Some people get caught in the position of — they really, really want those things and they can’t have them and it really tears them up. I’ma little lucky on that regard. I don’t really care that much. But you can find people — yourself included sometimes — who can get tied up in things like that. “I really, really want that fancy car.” Well, you know what? You can’t really afford it and you are better off understanding you can’t really afford it and moving on, because, if you don’t, you’re going to get in the situation that so many people found themselves in with their homes. They bought more home than they could afford and the bird came home to roost — the pigeon came home to roost. There was no way it was not going to do it. But we like, sometimes we want to believe too much. We want to believe that advertisement is telling us the truth and that this cream will make our skin look 20 years younger. We want to believe so much that we’re willing to ignore our own intuition, our own bet thoughts. Don’t fall into that trap, because that is one of the things that will move you over here. And we don’t want you there at all, if you can possibly avoid it. That’s truly unsuccessful. You are struggling. You are desperately having trouble.
