Start at the Beginning

Most people who win the lottery end up broke within a couple of years. They didn’t take all the steps usually required to accumulate that amount of wealth, and they didn’t know how to handle it.

They skipped a bunch of lessons on wealth accumulation and ended up stumbling, falling, and starting again from the beginning.

So think twice when you’re tempted to skip a few steps, as you might miss important lessons along the way. Lessons that will teach you everything essential about where you are, how to move forward, and how not to fall down.

Small, consistent steps are usually better than occasional giant leaps anyway.
