Steve Pavlina Quotes about Money

I found Steve Pavlina’s articles to be outstanding in helping anyone interested in personal development and improving their money situation. The following are a list of enlightening and motivational quotes that have helped me to put my financial situation into perspective.  

“The best place to invest your money is in yourself. The rate of return from investing in your own knowledge and skills will be much higher than anything you’ll see from stocks, real estate, or other investments.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“…invest 3% of your income on your own personal development.  You can use this budget to invest in improving yourself any way you like. So that includes not just knowledge, but also equipment and services — anything that helps you grow and improve.”  Steve Pavlina Quotes

“I got screwed over in some bad business deals, but as long as I focused on those past problems, I couldn’t move forward. I had to let all of that go and forgive everyone and everything first.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“You must assume 100% responsibility for your financial life.  If you’re going to improve your situation, you have to put the full burden of doing so squarely on your own shoulders. First and foremost, you must hold yourself responsible.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“Responsibility isn’t about blaming yourself or looking to the past. It’s about taking control over your situation. It’s about realizing that you always possess response-ability — the ability to choose your response. It’s about accepting the truth that if anything is going to change, your will must be the force that changes it.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“I don’t care if you’re a housewife who relies on your husband for 100% of your family’s income. If you want to change your financial situation, then the responsibility for making it happen is 100% your own… not your husband’s. You aren’t some weak and powerless being. You’re a creative person.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“Some people really go nuts here. They buy the cheapest items they can find, and everything breaks. Going too cheap often ends up being more expensive in the long run….Make reasonable cuts in your expenses, but don’t go crazy. If you want things to improve, you’ll be devoting most of your time and energy to the income side.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“…make friends with people who have a positive financial outlook. It doesn’t matter how much they’re earning right now. It could be 10x more or less than you. Look for people who assume 100% responsibility for their finances — people who don’t blame others for their setbacks. Such people make good long-term friends because they won’t freak out every time you boost your income.” Steve Pavlina

“If you want more money, you can create more value and/or deliver your value to more people.  This is the approach that most employees use. They don’t build anything that they retain ownership of. Instead, they merely trade hours for dollars, so someone else ends up owning what they helped to build – and thereby reaps all the long-term benefits of ownership.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

“If you can provide passive value, you can generate passive income.  Focus on creating and delivering passive value first. Create something, put it into a permanent form, and get it into people’s hands. Start small. Write an article. Write a recipe. Compose a song. Then share it as widely as you can. Then repeat over and over.” Steve Pavlina Quotes

Were these quotes helpful? If so why not share them with your friends and family.
