Your financial life will be defined by your resourcefulness, not your resources. I have seen too many people piss away opportunity because they focus on the resources that they have. Focusing on your resources (assets and income) will only lead to underachievement. You must consistently push yourself further. This isn't about greed or accumulation, this is about exercising your financial brain.
If you measure your success by what you have, then you are in deep trouble. Measure your success by how little you need.
