He rose from poverty to plenty. He became a millionaire by the time he was 14 year old.

His interests today is in real estate brokerages, and a foundation to teach business skills to young people.

He has a lot of words of wisdom. A lot of it is cliche, but they’re great and useful words.

Some words of wisdom from the video:

  • We have to develop a healthy fear of not doing what we want to do.
  • It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t know what you can’t do.
  • You have to be everywhere all the time.
  • Comfort is the enemy of achievement. In order to be successful, you must find things within your life that you’re uncomfortable about and that you want to change.

I have actually read Farrah Gray’s book Reallionaire and while I don’t think it’s the best book I’ve read, it’s definitely a good introduction for young people, but to tell you the truth, I have taken a few quotes from the book and have added them to my personal daily motivation list.

Let me know what you think about the video? Is there any way that we could’ve done something similar to Farrah when we were kids? Is there any way we can give this same vision to our kids?? Let us know in the comments below.
