1Getting rich is fucking easy. Eight years ago I had zero; this year I'm going to make $100m gross.
2Winners use words that say 'must' and 'will'
3Without action, the best intentions in the world are nothing more than that: intentions.
4I've got the guts to die. What I want to know is, have you got the guts to live?
5And from the time I was a kid, I've had this internal monologue roaring through my head, which doesn't stop - unless I'm asleep. I'm sure every person has this; it's just that my monologue is particularly loud. And particularly troublesome. I'm constantly asking myself questions. And the problem with that is that your brain is like a computer: If you ask a question, it's programmed to respond, whether there's an answer or not. I'm constantly weighing everything in my mind and trying to predict how my actions will influence events. Or maybe manipulate events are the more appropriate words. It's like playing a game of chess with your own life. And I hate fucking chess!
6But what I sincerely hope is that my life serves as a cautionary tale to the rich and poor alike; to anyone who's living with a spoon up their nose and a bunch of pills dissolving in their stomach sac; or to any person who's considering taking a God-given gift and misusing it; to anyone who decides to go to the dark side of the force and live a life of unbridled hedonism. And to anyone who thinks there's anything glamorous about being known as a Wolf of Wall Street.
7If you want to be rich, never give up. People tend to give up. If you have persistence, you will come out ahead of most people. More importantly, you will learn. When you do something, you might fail. But that's not because you're a failure. It's because you have not learnt enough. Do it differently each time. One day, you will do it right. Failure is your friend.
8Successful people are 100% convinced that they are masters of their own destiny , they're not creatures of circumstance, they create circumstance, if the circumstances around them suck they change them
9No matter what happened to you in your past, you are not your past, you are the resources and the capabilities you glean from it. And that is the basis for all change.
10There's no nobility in poverty.
11The easiest way to make money is create something of such value that everybody wants and go out and give and create value, the money comes automatically.
12The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it
13Act as if! Act as if you're a wealthy man, rich already, and then you'll surely become rich. Act as if you have unmatched confidence and then people will surely have confidence in you. Act as if you have unmatched experience and then people will follow your advice. And act as if you are already a tremendous success, and as sure as I stand here today - you will become successful.
14Whether you say, 'I can' or 'I can't,' you're right either way.
15When you live your life by poor standards, you inflict damage on everyone who crosses your path, especially those you love
16You don't choose who you fall in love with, do you? And once you do fall in love - that obsessive sort of love, that all-consuming love, where two people can't stand to be apart from each other for even a moment-how are you supposed to let a love like that pass you by?
